My Problem

The battery in my Macbook Pro was dead. Apple show it on their website but in fact do not sell them any more. They told me they no longer supplied batteries for my "vintage" machine!

My Fix

I got a generic battery from a NZ supplier but did not work, in fact was so badly engineered it did not fit properly in the space. I ordered one from IFixIt and it is excellent - and took just 3 days to arrive - from California to NZ!!

Well done!

My Advice

All good

My Problem

My old laptop is barely functional as one because I never upgraded the memory, operating system, or anything else on it since I first got it before graduating college, in the school year of 2006-2007. The poor computer has been without a functional battery and surviving only on a steady diet of electricity from the power adapter (like an ICU patient on an IV, poor thing) ever since the battery finally gave up on life a couple years ago (after spending a few years not holding much charge for very long). Added to that, the optical disk drive has not been functional for quite some time now... and with the operating system not being upgraded (mostly due to the limited memory and non-functional disk drive) the computer has been unable to update internet browsers or plugins (like flash player, etc) for a long time now and therefore hardly anything involved with the internet works very well, if at all.

My budget still not generous enough to afford a new computer (yet) and not able to afford to pay someone else to fix or upgrade my computer, I was (to say the least) most intrigued by finding ifixit with all the guides and the tremendously helpful way the store is set up to tell me which specific parts are compatible with my exact model of computer to help me make sure I get the right parts! After browsing the guides and offerings in the store, I concluded that this (unless ifixit turned out too good to be true) would definitely be the best place to get affordable parts, quality repair tools and detailed advice to be able to fix my computer up and get it off of life support and out of the ICU so it can live life to the fullest once more!

My Fix

In this case, I really didn't need the instructions for how to replace the battery, but I did look at them anyway along with the other guides for the repairs I plan to do later. I love the pictures with instructions and tips from people who have already done the same repairs. I chose to replace the battery first, since none of the other repairs my computer needs will matter much if the computer were to stay tethered to life support, forever hanging onto life by a single power cord.

Getting a battery first instead of parts that require actually taking my computer apart and which would make me want to get repair tools as well before replacing... was also my little way of testing ifixit to make sure it wouldn't disappoint me before investing in ordering repair tools and internal parts later on which would add up to a bigger chuck out of my budget and more of my time spent on repairs.

Well, everything went perfectly! The battery arrived much faster than I expected it to, is the right one for my computer, new as promised, and works great!

The end result--ifixit has gained a new customer who is going to be back to order more parts later (as budget allows) and to take full advantage of the available guides!

My Advice

The battery replacement for this computer is definitely simple enough to perform in a dimly-lit nuclear submarine. ;)

My Problem

The battery wore out so I replaced it

My Fix

It was simple

My Advice

Be sure to get the right battery.

My Problem

Old Battery didn't hold charge

My Fix

30 second "repair"

My Advice

About $30 cheaper than from Apple. Battery looks to be good quality.

My Problem

The right fan on my 15" MBP started making alarming noises. I figured it would fail completely soon, so I ordered a replacement fan from iFixit.

My Fix

I actually got the existing fan working again-for now. Using the guide on iFixit, I extracted the noisy fan, took it apart (there's only three parts), dipped the fan shaft in lithium grease, and reassembled the whole thing. The noise stopped-for now, at least.

My Advice

You would think that I could have done this just using the Guide and without ordering the $40 part-I wouldn't recommend it. My experience is that parts like fans stay fixed for only so long; once they've begun to fail, the process is pretty much inexorable. Having the new fan on my desk for installation at my convenience is a lot better than having it break at its convenience. Plus, buying the part supports iFixit and keeps the great Guides coming-buying a part I may not need for a couple months is a LOT cheaper than paying Apple to replace it and being without my machine for a week while they do so!

My Problem

Rechargeable batteries just don't last forever - even good ones. I think it's a conspiracy by the physicists of the world who just need to tweak some equation somewhere for all of us to enjoy unlimited battery life. For sure Nobel Prize to whomever does this. Until then, we must replace batteries from time to time.

My Fix

A lot better than the fan replacement I tried last week (I ordered the wrong fan, but ifixit is taking care of rectifying that snafu).

My Advice

I put up with this dying battery far too long, and lost data when the old battery caused the system to crash instead of sleeping the system.

My Problem

The left cooling fan on an older Macbook Pro was noisy and intermittent.

My Fix

No snags! The instructions and video provided on this site were spot-on! New fan works great and the computer doesn't overheat anymore.

My Advice

Stay tuned to this website! It's great!

My Problem

First, my Hard Drive was too puny to contain my music and photo collection. Second, I can hear a spinning noise. Third, the runtime of my battery was short.

My Fix

A bit stressed at the beginning because it was the first time we replaced a Hard Drive on this type of computer. However, we followed the instructions of the ifixit guide one by one and everything went well. Concerning the battery, the one I received was not better than the one that I had: a short runtime. I am waiting for the replacement.

My Advice

We didn't have a T6 Torx Screwdriver. Instead of, we used a T7 Torx Screwdriver and it worked out without any problem.

My Problem

The older versions of the MacBookPro (A1150) don´t have large Hard Drives, so we had to put in a larger one. At the same time the battery went wrong, so we had to replace it, simultaneous with giving the MacBookPro some more RAM

My Fix

With the guides of ifixit it was as easy as like playing a game!

My Advice

Everything I found, was like described in the repair guides from ifixit!
