Bottom lid, easy

Main body, very difficult and you need to buy new touch bar module as well. New battery and keyboard recommended but if you are careful and not cared about quality you can reuse them

Display cover, not going to happen ever

Definitely not worth it. I think the touch bar/touch ID is paired to the logic board like iPhones as well, so it may not be possible, it is difficult to say at this point until more are available to work on.


Touch ID is a separate module from Touch Bar. Touch Bar is absolutely not repairable but you can pull the Touch ID button off and put into a new case.


Good to know, only worked on 1 of these so far, so not too familiar at the moment :)
