Compatible Spare parts with a Mac


I would like to know if there is a way to know the compatible spare parts between two different mac powerbook.

I have a PowerBook G4 A1046 and have the possibility to buy a Powerbook G4 A1138 (sold for parts). The two computer are different in many ways (1.25GHz Vs 1.67GHz for example) but there is also spare parts that are common to both computer. Which parts ? Is there a document that can help me to find this information ?

Thank you in advance for your help.

  • SOLVED ***** THANKS TO ... ME !!!! :)

I found a website on which it is possible to download exploded view of different models... on those exploded view, you can find PART REFERENCES and compare if part references a the same or not.

If part references are the same, the part is compatible. If the references are different, then, the part MAY be compatible but it is then pure luck...

Example of two exploded view to compare Powerbook G4 model A1046 and A1095

I have to say that the website is not very easy to find the docs...

Hope this subject will help !
