Which screws need threadlocker?

I have the parts of the body of my Mid-2007 Core 2 Duo Macbook, and I want to put it back together, but I'm not sure which screws need threadlocker and which don't since I didn't match up each individual screw with the individual hole it came from, I can't just look at the screw and replace it if it's on there. Does somebody know which screws should have threadlocker and which ones don't?

Is this a good question?

Actually it wouldn't hurt to have thread locker/dressing on all the screws and the screws on this are so small that it won't take much to do them all.

Would that interfere with the electrical grounding function of some of the screws?


None of it. The thread dressing/locker fills the gaps where the metal isn't touching and is moved from areas where the metal is touching. That is one of the reasons why I said it won't hurt to have it on all the screws.


Thanks, I'll do that then.


I'd make sure to NOT use the permanent thread locker in case you ever needed to open the computer again. +


Right, I'd replace it with the same color, blue, not red.
