My Problem

original battery needed to be replaced

My Fix

perfectly -- very easy and I am not very mechanically inclined. The pictures and description were easy to follow and very detailed.

My Advice

IFIXIT is a TERRIFIC web site!

My Problem

macbook hatte nur mehr laufzeit von knapp einer stunde

My Fix

echt einfach, abdeckung runtergeschraubt, neuer akku hat super gepasst.

jetzt sind die laufzeiten wieder super :-)

My Advice

aufpassen bei den schrauben für die abdeckung,sind unterschiedlich lang (wobei der unterschied eh gleich auffällt)

die 2 schrauben mit denen der akku befestigt ist,sind keine normalen kreuz oder torx schrauben, spezialwerkzeug oder ein bisschen geschick erforderlich)

My Problem

The old battery would not hold a charge.

My Fix

Very easy only took 10 minutes start to finish.

My Advice

Look up replacement procedures on line before you start.

My Problem

Changing the battery

My Fix

Perfect, as expected!

My Advice

When buying from Spain you have to add 42.75€. (IVA 26.41€ + 13.50€ gastos administrativos from Fedex + 2.84€ IVA de los gastos.

The final price is the same than going to an Apple shop to be repaired! : (

My Problem

My track pad was not working on my Macbook Pro 2010 mid year version. I took it to a repair shop. The problem was the battery was damaged and was pushing up on the pad. I had them put in a refurbished battery. After using it awhile I was not satisfied with the battery. I decided to work with IFIXIT and replace the battery myself. I usually take all my repairs to my rerpair shop. However, after watching the videos, reading the step-by-step guides and reading coustomer's comments I decided to give the repair myself.

My Fix

I was a little leary when the website said the repair was "easy". For some reason, things are not always easy for me. However, to my surprise, it was easy! The video, the guide and the comments were all helpful. Thank you teammates.

My Advice

Use the website for the tools, videos, guides and comments.

My Problem

La batterie de mon MacBook Pro commençait à s'essouffler après 5 ans de bons et loyaux services. Il me fallait donc la remplacer. La batterie livré par iFixit est exactement la même que celle d'origine, j'ai donc retrouvé les performances et l'autonomie de mon MacBook Pro comme s'il venait de m'être livré.

My Fix

Malgré les dires d'Apple la batterie se remplace très facilement. Celle-ci n'est pas collée comme sur les derniers portables d'Apple mais retenue par deux vis, Il suffit de dévisser les dix vis maintenant le coque inférieure, de déconnecter la batterie et de retirer les deux vis pour la sortir de son emplacement et la remplacer par la nouvelle batterie.

My Advice

Nhésitez plus pour remplacer vous même votre batterie sur un MacBook Pro mi 2009. Suivez le tutoriel iFixit et tout devrait se passer sans problèmes. Méfiez-vous tout de même des batteries tierces et optez plutôt pour une batterie d'origine.

My Problem

My wife's laptop had turned into a desktop that couldn't travel more than 3 feet from the charger.

My Fix

$100 new battery from iFixIt and about 15 minutes of work and it's back to new.

My Advice

I was nervous about buying the battery from any one but apple. I knew the work was trivial, but to save $35 was it worth the gamble? I've used iFixit in the past and had faith, glad I did. The battery they sent had 0 cycles on it, legit apple part, and is working wonderfully (3 cycles in anyway).

My Problem

Battery lost its ability to hold a charge. Apple wanted $400 do fix it. I live in the middle of nowhere so I was going to have to ship it.

My Fix

It was as simple as removing a few screws and pulling out the old battery and putting the new one in. Seriously the easiest repair I have ever done on anything. Also it was my first repair on a computer.

My Advice

I would recommend buying the screwdriver kit from here. It was nice because it had everything I needed. I didn't need to use the little black plastic thingy to pry the battery attachment off, I just used my fingernail. Make sure to keep your screws separated and labeled as to where they should go back. Three of the screws are longer than the others on the case, and then one screw on the inside is longer as well.

My Problem

The batter was saying replace soon (sometimes said replace now) and the machine's six years old so it was time to replace it. The RAM was to improve speed of course.

My Fix

Fine! No problems! My uncle and a friend guided me through the repairs.

My Advice

Keep your screws in order! Make sure you have a tri-wing screwdriver too. You can use a guitar pic instead of a spudger ;)

My Problem

I'd had my Mac since 2009 and never serviced the battery. It was finally starting to show and the battery life was getting worse and worse.

My Fix

I was nervous but the repair was super easy and the guide/videos made it really easy to follow. For someone who's never opened up any type of computer it was just as easy as they said it would be.

My Advice

Definitely doing this next time. I didn't want to go to the apple store because they wouldn't give me an estimate and they tend to charge just to get the estimate. No need to pay an expert to do this.
