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.
