My Problem

My partners late 2009 Macbook started to fall apart all at once. The rubberised bottom peeled off, the batter stopped holding a charge and the fan failed.

I replaced the laptop with a new macbook and kept the old one until it failed completely which was the day after it was replaced.

A year later and I was going through all my old gear and found the Macbook and thought it would be a good exercise to fix it.

My Fix

The repair took all of 35 mins with the new toolkit I purchased with the replacement parts.

Once everything was is place the Macbook, to my surprise, booted like it was brand new and is now my main 'nix box.

My Advice

Just because it is broken it doesn't mean it can't be fixed ...and get the pro toolkit for the repair!!

My Problem

Battery went bad

My Fix

ordered the correct part and was fixed in a minute

My Advice

nope

My Problem

battery was dead and magsafe board failed

My Fix

everything was great, i had 1 screw stripped from a previous repair but it wasn't too much of an issue and i broke 1 speaker connector , but that speaker was already blown and will be replaced once i can afford it.

My Advice

be very gentle with the speaker connectors, they really are delicate.

My Problem

After 5 years, the battery simply couldn't keep working anymore. So it was time to replace it.

My Fix

It was an easy and clear unmounting, replacement and mounting. The battery is real easy to replace, just follow the steps carefully on the tutorial.

My Advice

Careful on your tools! The tri-wing battery screw is really annoying, and it is a must have before tearing the laptop down.

My Problem

Battery was out completely, swapped it out with a new iFixit battery.

My Fix

Once swapped the computer did not turn on. After a day of stress, found that the problem was the small connector left of where the battery plugs in. It had come loose slightly. With tape, nudged it back in to position. This is the only thing to be aware since the battery touches this cable.

My Advice

Again, if the the computer does not turn on, check that cable. Also be careful with stripping the screws.

My Problem

Batteria morta

My Fix

Sostituzione facile e veloce

My Advice

Acquistare il cacciavite triwing y1

My Problem

The battery swelled in the middle so much that it pushed the track pad up our of the computer.

My Fix

Trackpad replacement seemed at first not to work, new pad was also out of alignment, but shifting the strips that hold it in slightly solved the problem and the track pad aligned. Worked perfectly. Putting the battery in and it's as good as new. Thanks.

My Advice

If the track pad has been pushed out of alignment, the metal strips that hold it in may need to be straightened out before screwing in the new pad.

My Problem

Headphone plug was broken inside an iPad.

My Fix

Used the pointed tweezers and much patience to eventually remove the broken plug.

My Advice

Patience

My Problem

Wife's MB battery was cooked.

My Fix

The repair went easy, the ifixit guide was spot on and the tools worked exactly right.

My Advice

The bottom case screws are thread locked, so beware of stripping the screw heads.
