My Problem

My old SuperDrive hadn't worked for years. It was okay for a while, but I finally needed to upgrade my OS to do most anything. I decided it was time to do this repair.

My Fix

IT WAS SOOOO EASY using the ifixit guide. I had broken it all down and cleaned it once already to no avail, but this time I just looked over the guide and did it without the guide and it took maybe 45 minutes. The used part even came with all the mounting hardware and the bluetooth cradle. I only had to swap over my old cable.

I'll be doing some other repairs in the near future to keep my 2006 Macbook out of the landfill. I'm hoping to have this be my primary computer for at least 3 more years.

My Advice

Get a few egg cartons or small boxes and label them with the step number they go with and put parts or screws in them so it's SUPER EASY to get things back together.
