I don't know why - but i couldn't care less - especially in the case of a fluid damage (water and a battery is a bad mixture)

so let's start - the warranty is vioded anyway

here is the important part - get the logic board out of the MacBook.

you need rubbing alcohol and a soft paintbrush, clean everything carefully that look's like white/yellow/greenish or black mold - be careful - the parts are tiny - after you're done - let it dry (depends on the grade of the alcohol - i use 100% iso - better a day than to short) - DO NOT USE A HAIRDRYER!

if it's dry - reassemble it and try to start it.

Thanks.. i will try..


Rubbing alcohol contains about 30% water. A better cleaner would be isopropl alcohol, methanol or ethanol.
