Stories

My Problem

The current 500GB drive had run out of space, so we upgraded to 4T.

My Fix

Everything went well, however a word of caution. The video cable mount is very tiny and you need small hands to reseat it.

My Advice

You don't need to remove the LCD screen, you can reach the screws that hold the drive in place by simply lifting the screen.

My Problem

I've opened the back of my Macbook Pro a number of times and thought, since I was placing another Order with iFixit, that I would be proactive and also order the Lower Case Screw Set.

My Fix

The new screws did not screw in as easily as the originals and they seemed to be softer and as a result the heads were starting to strip. I decided not to use the new screw set and reverted back to the original screws, which worked fine.

My Advice

All the parts I've ordered from iFixit for my Macbook Pro Unibody work great except for the Lower Screw Set. I recommend that you find a different company to purchase this item from.

My Problem

I have replaced the optical drive and the original hard drive by 2 ssd samsung 1.5 years ago. A few weeks ago the hard drive cable of the primary one breack.

So I had the problems below :

- 1 hard drive not recognized

- Click brocken on trackpad

- battery in service mode

My Fix

About the trackpad no guide was concerning my macboom pro 2.53 GHz mid 2009 but I partially unscrewed screws fixing the motherboard to the upper case to replace the trackpad map.

Battery & hard drive cable replacement : easy

My Advice

The new replacement batteries proposed by ifixit for MBP 2.53 GHz mid 2009 wasnkt exactly the same but ok. A bit bigger than the original one, so you have to play with the map (a bit too long), and the 3 screws. But it works fine.

My Problem

Hard drive failed

My Fix

Without a hitch: 45 minutes minus interruptions

My Advice

Unplug LCD cable from LCD not mother board.

Color code the screws as to their location-magic marker. Improves reassebmbly time. Reduces confusion.

My Problem

Upgrading my Macbook Pro from 4g to 8g RAM. Replaced my old HDD with a new SSD.

My Fix

Repair went great. The tool kit I got from ifixit was really nice.

My Advice

Wish I knew about ifixit a few years ago.

My Problem

Hard drive going to !&&*. 5 years is a good long life.

My Fix

Replaced MBP original HD with Crucial MX550 SSD, pretty simple. The external USB to SATA adapter was flawless, cloned the dying drive in about 2 hours, swapping the drives took about 20 minutes. Would have gone quicker had I had the T6 Torx driver I didn't know I needed to remove the set screws from the drive...but that's my fault for not reading the steps all the way to the end first. Pliers got the job done, no harm no foul. Thanks, iFixit.

My Advice

Read your steps. And get a can of air to clean out your filthy innards if you haven't remembered to do that. I got my trackpad click back just by blowing out the dust--bonus!

My Problem

I suffered slow performance for 2 years and thought the machine was just getting long in the tooth. I created a Yosemite boot disk on a USB drive. The machine was incredibly fast when running even over USB 2.0, so I had a feeling it was the hard drive. I ran SpinRite for a day and it started to show errors as well as being generally very slow. Without good diagnostics I was not 100% certain it was the hard drive, but I was almost so.

My Fix

The repair was straightforward thanks to MJ's video. The only challenge I had was the hard drive thermistor, which had lost its stickiness. I used a piece of electrical tape and I hope that will work. I think that piece of plastic might be a good offering to go along with this repair, or perhaps iFixit has a tried a trusted method of sticking the thermistor? I got a bit careless when I hit this issue and forgot to plug in the thermistor, resulting in the fan blowing at full power ... so I kind of got to do the repair twice.

My Advice

Take it slow. Have the cloth and cleaner on hand. As soon as the glass comes off the LCD will start to get dusty. Be careful screwing in the LCD connector's #6 torx screws. Don't over tighten. Deep breaths.

My Problem

the old battery was down to 40 minutes run time on a full charge. time for a new battery.

My Fix

opening the case was the hardest part. once that hurdle was overcome the rest was pretty straight forward. ipod is like new, plays for several hours now.

My Advice

i did not disconnect any of the ribbon cables between the logic board and the screen/control wheel. i simply unscrewed the logic board's 3 screws, then disconnected the logic board from its holding tabs and lifted it above the face place about a half inch. Then i used 2 spudgers as risers between the face plate and the logic board to hold it up. All the soldering was done in that configuration. Heat the solder points and remove old battery wires. Left some solder in the solder points and soldered new battery wires in. removed spudgers and lowered logic board back into place. reconnected taps and screws, replaced kapton tape, put the back plate on, and viola! ipod works great.

My Problem

the old drive slowed down after installing Mavericks

My Fix

It went very smoothly, no mistakes. Booted up perfectly after cloning drive with super-duper. No problems yet. Much faster now. Thanks a bunch. You guys are the best.

My Advice

Maybe a couple of pieces of the heavy duty tape to replace the old ones holding down the heat sink wires. After removal the stickiness is about gone and scotch tape doesn't seem heavy enough.

My Problem

The logic board on the iMac (5yrs old) failed, so instead of repair, I opted for a new iMac, and wanted to keep the 'old' hard drive as a back-up for our back-up. I used the iFixIt guide for replacing a hard drive, and purchased a Universal Drive Adapter (I had had one but couldn't find where I had hidden it some time ago).

My Fix

The kit came with elaborate instructions for Windows but none for MacOS. Guess why? You don't need any!! It was fairly simple to figure out what needed to be plugged where, and Erasing and Partitioning the now-new external hard drive was easy-peasy.

My Advice

Would have been nice to also have a chassis available for the hard drive in addition to the SATA and power connections.
