My Problem

A mishap with a pint killed a handful of keys... stupid clumsy hands! But I'm super lucky it was just the keyboard and not the mainboard, SSD, etc.

My Fix

The repair went great. The iFixit guide is insanely thorough and clearly laid out. I put it up on my iPad while i worked step by step. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with shaky hands, but it's all pretty straightforward ultimately.

I'm kind of crazy meticulous with these sorts of things, and I appreciate the iFixit seems to be likewise. It was all really super smooth.

My Advice

This is basically a complete teardown of the machine, and it's a *very* tightly laid out machine at that. It pays to be precise, and it pays double to use good tools... I can plug the iFixit driver set for this... the magnetic heads are wonderful with all those little parts.

I'd highly recommend having lots of little dishes or trays to keep the dozens of tiny screws and other parts in and keep them in order of the step in which they were removed. This way, you not only minimize your chance of losing anything, when you start putting it back together, everything's there in order... no worrying about what part is where or which screw is which. See the attached photo of my fully disassembled system.

My Problem

By accident my keyboard got wet, and some keys stopped working, It became really annoying not to be able to write correctly, so I decided to fix it.

My Fix

The repair went really smoothly, having gotten the tools you recommended and the parts needed, the instructions where really helpful tho there where two things I wold like to comment about, one is that in the tools list I did not see that there was the need of a philips screw driver of 1.6 mm, tho it was not a big problem since I had one at home, just a comment for future clients. The second is that there is a step missing on the instructions, its about removing the battery, again this was not problem for me since its easy to do, but the instructions would be perfect if they did not missed this step. Thank you tho, my computer is now working 100% I will gladly use your website and store again if necessary.

My Advice

Simply follow the steps carefully and you shouldn't have a problem.

My Problem

I left my laptop open (because I was downloading a torrent) on the floor beside my bed before I went out to the clubs and had a bit to much to drink. I opened my eyes up the next morning with my head hanging off the side of the bed and saw puke right on the keyboard. Cleaned it all up, picked the gunk out of the keys and the only buttons that had a hard time were the U and return keys.

My Fix

Repair went really well, about 1hr to take it all apart and 30mins to put it together.

My Advice

I had no issues, just remember where each screw goes and have the right tools at hand will make the job quick and painless.

My Problem

Two of the keys were not working.

My Fix

Went surprising well! Thanks, iFixit!!

My Advice

"Difficult" may be an exaggeration, but care is needed! Especially with the 000 Phillips head screws securing the trackpad.
