My Problem

My early 2011 macbook pro battery swollen so I buy one here, and arrived to my house just two days after I ordered! it was great, even if I live in Mexico!

My Fix

It was extremely easy to replace the macbook pro battery, though replacing the iPhone 4s battery was a little difficult but it was on the backplate to blame, even though I replaced it in less than 20 minutes

My Advice

Always keep an eye on your mail, if there's a problem ifixit team will contact you there ;)

My Problem

After about five years of heavy use on my Mid-2010 MacBook Pro, the battery had become disfigured, warping my trackpad along with it. Also, my computer was acting very sluggish.

My Fix

After I received my iFixit delivery, I replaced my RAM and my battery using the 54 Bit Driver Kit and iFixit's easy guides. Everything went perfect. It only took a few minutes, and my MacBook was back up and running.

My Advice

iFixit has great products and great repair guides. If you think tinkering with your laptop is too difficult and only professional geeks can fix it, then you should rethink your philosophy because it's really easy with the right tools and the right guide, and you can find both here at iFixit.

My Problem

My trackpad stopped working & after some searching it sounded like the battery was going bad. After several tech calls & web searching, I found IFIXIT!! Thank goodness b/c the closest Mac store was over 3 hours away. And I didn't like the idea of mailing my computer off somewhere to have a simple battery taken out.

My Fix

The repair was easy peasy! I ordered the new battery on a Saturday and had it by Wednesday. Installing the battery couldn't be easier.

My Advice

IFIXIT, please keep doing what you are doing. THANK YOU for your products, your service, your how to videos, etc...! Thanks for making my battery replacement a painless process.

My Problem

Battery would no longer charge. As a result the computer was REALLY slow, even when plugged in. By really slow I mean CineBench scores 10 X slower than with a good battery.

My Fix

Easy, I had done this before on similar computers and so already had a tri-lobe screwdriver.

My Advice

Be really careful putting the housing screws back in. It is very easy to cross-thread them and have them go in at the wrong angle, this leaves the head edge exposed and can cause it to snag on things.

My Problem

Old clunky HDD

My Fix

Took an hour to change out the battery, add the new 1TB harddrive, create an external drive with my old HDD, and boot.

My Advice

Create the boot drive before replacing the HDD.

My Problem

My MacBook Pro (2.66Ghz Mid-2010) is on it's 4 1/2th year, which is about 2 years longer than any old PC laptop would have lasted with me. The last battery replacement was during it's AppleCare term, so I was nervous about finding a genuine, non-used battery for such an old machine. eBay had a lot of cheap garbage knock-offs that may have worked for a day and/or exploded inside the laptop. I was willing to pay a little more for a genuine one and that's what I do.

My Fix

Replacement was easy. Remove the bottom case, unplug the old battery, remove two tri-wing screws, slide battery out ... do the process in reverse to install the new battery. Other than adding memory, this is the easiest part replacement in MacBook Pros of this design.

I booted up the Mac and everything was just fine. Just to make sure it really was a new battery, I checked out the System Report and it did indeed have 0 prior charge cycles, proving it wasn't just some random battery pulled out of another machine and resold.

My Advice

I don't have a tri-wing screwdriver, but a small flat-head works all the same in removing both battery screws. Don't forget to disconnect the power connector on your old battery first and be sure that you're grounded!

My Problem

I was presented with a MacBook Pro with a broken Trackpad; it had several cracks radiating from its center, and was raised up out of the case almost 2 inches. I immediately suspected a bad battery, and as I removed each bottom cover screw, the battery pushed it up more with a high pressure. by the time most of the screws were out, the the battery had ballooned up. I was so fearful that it would explode in my face, I put on a face shield before continuing. Luckily, I was able to remove and properly dispose it with our used batteries.

My Fix

Installation was fast. I removed the 10 screws on the bottom cover, lifted the lid, inserted the battery, replaced the two "Y" screws and plugged the battery connector to the system board. After replacing the cover, the MacBook Pro was ready to go.

My Advice

There's one tool that you might not have: Y1 Tri-wing Screwdriver. I thought that I didn't, but then looked in my "ifixit 54 Bit Driver Kit", and found that it included the bit. I recommend that kit; it contains most of the tools I need to repair Macs.

My Problem

Battery wasn't lasting died within 2 hours so i knew I had to replace its time was done especially after 5 years.

My Fix

It went well battery was easy to replace and I'm just happy my laptop is back to normal. The toolkit Ifixit offers is amazing!

My Advice

Follow the tools needed for this repair and BOOM!

My Problem

After 4 years the battery was swollen on my MacBook Pro 13inch. Bottom line, the computer was just fine. It still met our needs as a family and most of the time we had it docked with the thunderbolt display so the screen resolution was no issue. So happy we didn't have to purchase a new computer and can wait for a few more years to get a future generation.

My Fix

Total repair time was 15 minutes. The Tri-wing screwdriver was perfect!

My Advice

Always buy the accessories that iFixit recommends. It really does save you time vs. going around to stores looking for specialised tools!

My Problem

The battery soared up for no apparent reason.

My Fix

Took less than 5 minutes

My Advice

Don't think it twice, its easy!
