What is the part name and number for the internal power connector?
Having successfully completed an upper case replacement, I discovered to my chagrin that the connector (female) into which one plugs the 'other' end of the magsafe adapter was simply.... missing. The logic board is intact. The magsafe adapter works fine. I just need this one tiny part (see two small photos, below) to put everything in working order. I have done my best to determine what the part is called, who makes it, and whether/where I can buy a couple of them. So far, I have come up short.
I understand how the pins work; I know what I need to do; I just need that one part! I've narrowed the selection to this: it is a Molex 5-pin wire-to-board connector, and it is very thin.
Any guidance anyone can offer will be much appreciated. Alternatively, if the only solution is to build my own teensy-weensy connector, if anyone could point me towards relevant info, I'd also be grateful. To be clear: I know the logic board works; I know all the connections work; I just don't want to have to hold the other end of the connector onto the logic board with my finger to charge the thing.
Thanks in advance!
Yes, the images are from iFixit. The reason I used the iFixit photo was that it was from the exact model of computer I have: a late 2013 13" Macbook Pro (retina) - thus everything in the photo is in the same position in on my machine. I replaced the upper case using an iFixit guide (which was terrific, BTW). This is the same machine I wrote in about earlier, where there was an internal system conflict that caused the trackpad to malfunction. I wiped the hard drive, partitioned it, and tried to install the trackpad update Apple claims to have produced - to no avail. Even after replacing the entire upper case, I had to re-wipe and rebuild the hard drive again to get rid of the conflict between the internal USB keyboard and the internal USB trackpad. Both now work like a charm, if only I could power the computer. If nothing else, the process has been very educational. See photos, below:
Sorry. Struggling with the formatting. See link: internal power connector for Macbook Pro late 2013 13"
Is this a good question?
