My Problem

The MacBook I've acquired had no HDD bracket leaving making it difficult to change as well as providing no support for a HDD if I was to put one in.

My Fix

Put the HDD in the bracket and jammed it back into the mac {this 'new' HDD was actually a salvaged PS3 internal HDD}. Overall -complete success.

My Advice

Don't force anything! Unless you need to...

My Problem

Two teenagers, both in need of computer access for schoolwork. Got a hand-me down MacBook with no hard drive. Had a 250GB drive that I had swapped out of my current MacBook when I upgraded it to 500GB. The problem - no bracket to hold the drive. Fortunately, iFixit had the hard drive bracket that I needed.

My Fix

Having swapped out drives before, the installation was a piece of cake once I had the part I needed. The bracket came with the screws needed to attach it to the drive. Took me about 5 minutes to secure the bracket to the drive and install it.

My Advice

If you are replacing a MacBook drive for the first time, Apple has a step by step guide called "Hard Drive Replacement Instructions" (073-1045). Very useful.

My Problem

Well, I'm now on my third hard drive in this little laptop. No more clicks of death though as I've moved onto an SSD.

My Fix

Easy once I had the bracket. The other bracket is off somewhere lost amongst other broken hard drives.

My Advice

Read IFixit repair guides before getting ready to do the drive. I went to do the repair prior to having the bracket. Otherwise this repair is one of the easiest I've ever had to do.
