My Problem

The battery was no longer charging.

My Fix

Everything went without a hitch. The guide on the ifixit website helped out a lot as well as Youtube videos.

My Advice

When screwing back the bottom plate the screws on the side must be screwed in at a slight angle to prevent stripping.

My Problem

Battery needed to be replaced on a Macbook Pro 15" 2011. So, we bought a new one from iFixit along with the tri-wing screwdriver.

My Fix

The iFixit guide made it way too easy. I did it with one eye closed and one hand tied behind my back to give myself a challenge.

My Advice

This is easier than making coffee. Takes about as long too.

My Problem

My Macbook Pro 15" Unibody (eary 2011) Battery need a replacement because it's already dead for quite some time now and don't have time to give to apple service center.

My Fix

Great, with the proper tools and the Guides from ifixit it become easy. Now my MacBook pro 15" battery working well and charging great.

My Advice

just make sure you had the right tools for your repair, and guides to your item, 100% all will be fine.

Always go to ifixit whenever you had a doubt on anything you can get all the information that are very useful to anything.

My Problem

Without battery, the mobility is a problem.

My Fix

I use the guide, very easy.

My Advice

Must have the goods screw drivers, 2 differents ;)

My Problem

Over time my trackpad stopped clicking - the computer worked fine with a mouse but was nearly impossible to use with only the trackpad. I assumed the trackpad was broken and ordered a replacement. First thing I did to install the trackpad was remove the existing battery (a cheap knockoff I installed a year ago). I immediately realized that the reason the trackpad didn't click was that it was hitting the battery! So I returned the trackpad, ordered a replacement battery and installed it.

My Fix

About as easy a repair as possible. You need the tools but otherwise it's under 5 minutes of work.

My Advice

If your trackpad starts working poorly think about the battery! And beware cheaper knockoff replacement batteries.

My Problem

The problem was that the original battery could no longer hold a charge, was expanding within the Unibody and the computer could not function without being plugged into an outlet.

My Fix

I checked out local shops anticipating that they would not have a specific battery such as the one for the Mac pro on hand, but tried anyways. Searched the web for a day and came across iFixit. I was a bit hesitant, but I was in dire need. iFixit made it super easy. I watched the video, they provided the necessary materials list for purchase at a reasonable price in terms of convenience and ease. As mentioned earlier, I needed the battery soon, so I forked over the 2 day mail fee and received it on time as was predicted. The battery swap was quick and mess free. Now, the computer works great!

My Advice

iFixit was super helpful and I would stronger consider them if you're trying to fix something yourself. Do a bit of research first on what your looking for and then weigh your options. In my case, this was the most idle situation.

My Problem

The battery on our MacBookPro had swollen and pushed the trackpad out as well as bending the bottom-case.

My Fix

The repair went well -- with the right tools and parts from iFixit I was able to save my company hundreds of dollars.

My Advice

Make sure you dispose of the battery in an ecologically responsible way.

My Problem

I knew my battery needed to be replaced after I recognized it was not holding its charge as well as it did out of the box. It became drastic when the battery exploded and began pushing up my track pad. I asked the local computer shop to fix it and they were going to charge over $250!! So I turned to Ifixit for help.

My Fix

The repair went phenomenally!! I received my battery and tri-wing screwdriver in the mail and that day replaced my battery. It took me all of 10 minutes to remove the bottom cover of my laptop, take out the old battery, put in the new one, and put the cover back on. The two words that come to mind with this, QUICK AND EASY!!

My Advice

My advice is to try Ifixit if you feel comfortable doing the repair yourself. This was my first time ever using them and I am nothing but satisfied with them. I will be recommending and using them from now on.

My Problem

The MacBook Pro was only lasting about 20 minutes on battery, not very convenient when I want to get something done or read a book.

My Fix

Got a battery from ifixit. Came quickly. Thought I had all the tools but when I went to look for my tri lobe driver I couldn't find it. Then I noticed ifixit had included two different sizes of tri lobe drivers! So the job went without a hitch! Thanks guys!

My Advice

Only thing I need now is advice on where to recycle my old battery.

My Problem

One morning my MacBook Pro had a bulge where the trackpad is, popping out the trackpad and warping the case below. I didn't drop it or anything. So after research online, it appeared that the battery had just given up and exploded, needing repair. Why spend $200+ taking it to the Apple Store, when I don't have free time during the day anyways, when I can do it myself?

My Fix

It was super easy, less than 10 minutes and the battery was replaced, and charging. I have used it just on battery alone and it has worked fine. The case is no longer warped, and the trackpad is back in its proper place.

My Advice

Totally helped having the Y1 Tri-Wing screwdriver, it's a must!
