My Problem

MacBook Air battery only lasting 1-2 hours

My Fix

Changing the battery was super easy. I had gone to the Apple store twice and both times they wanted to keep it for at least 48 hours. I run a business and cannot be without it for that long. I wanted an OEM battery and found it on iFixit. Saved the 'repair' fee Apple was going to charge and had it done in about 15 minutes!

My Advice

Skip the Apple store to save you A LOT of time and some money! Just backup your computer first, print the instructions available right on this site and anyone can do this quick battery exchange.

My Problem

My cat knocked over my MacBook Pro 13", completely destroying the display.

My Fix

Repair was simple and easy with the use of the ifixit guide. Total time to remove and install displays 35 minutes. I have a moderate understanding of fixing pc's and have replace screens before. How ever I was nervous with my first Mac replacement, I found the guide to be easily read and understood for any skill set.

My Advice

Read guide a couple times first, patience is a virtue. Also helps to have proper tools for the job. I had a refrigerator photo magnet that I turned over and used to store all screws.

My Problem

Battery died in a mid-2011 MacBook Air 11"

My Fix

The repair was easier than expected. I bought the (inexpensive) tools recommended by iFixit. All Good.

Alas, there is another problem w the laptop not having to do with the integrity of the new battery itself. Battery won't charge. It will boot with the AC power. I repeatedly reset both PRAM and SMC. Nothing. I'm taking it to a local reliable Mac repair shop for diagnosis.

Again: the iFixit stuff worked fine. My problem though was more than just replacing the old battery.

My Advice

Bottom line: I am happy with iFixit, the instructions, and the gear I purchased from iFixit.

My Problem

Studying hard. Left macbook pro on arm of couch (knowing I shouldn't, but did it anyway) in order to grab my 50lb textbook which was a few feet out of arms reach. Falling macbook pro (~1 year old). Cracked screen. Rainbow coloured wonders with horizontal lines.

My Fix

Excellent. ifixit screens were out of stock when I needed mine, but I ordered the handy screwdrivers from here and bought a screen elsewhere. The guide for the replacement was perfect. Straightforward, great pictures. Successful repair. Macbook is like new! Thanks, ifixit.

My Advice

Follow ifixit guides and you should be good to go! Hardest parts were reconnecting three cables to airport board and reseating the display connector tab. But a little patience and steady hands did the trick.

My Problem

Well, the first problem was that my battery had been screaming for a replacement for months. Unplugged, I could get an hour out of it. So I ordered a battery and tools from iFixIt. But when it rains, it pours, so as I waited for my delivery, my hard drive crashed. I bought a new hard drive from elsewhere. Thankfully, the hard drive repair used the same tools as the battery and there was a Guide ready to go.

My Fix

The repair went great! I was really proud of myself by the end. It took maybe 30 minutes in total. The slowest part was unscrewing the teeny tiny laptop screws. But after that was done and the screws were safely secured, the rest was really easy and straight forward.

My Advice

This may not have been the most complicated of technical feats, but it's nice to know that things like fixing a computer aren't as difficult as they seem.

My Problem

Battery failing in mid 2012 MacBook Air

My Fix

Very easy repair. Lots of screws but the repair guide is easy to follow. I decided to use this 2013 battery in my mid-2012 MacBook Air so I'd get a bit more time out of the battery. Seems to work just fine and fits like the original. Was a real Apple part so you don't have to worry about compatibility or performance issues.

My Advice

The P5 and T5 screwdrivers are easy to damage/strip out. That's better than stripping out the screws themselves though. I had one extra P5 screwdriver from a prior SSD upgrade. Good thing because I stripped out the iFixIt screwdriver and I've performed many of these types of repairs/upgrades. I hesitate to say the quality of the screwdriver is bad but be careful.

Apply good pressure against screws to keep the screwdriver from striping.

My Problem

Disk Failure

My Fix

Quick and easy

My Advice

Wish you had larger sized disks available.

My Problem

My MacBook Air Battery started losing charge and the warning on the battery monitor said to replace the battery. I considered taking it to the apple store and go through all the inconvenience. I looked up iFixit web site and found that they had detailed instructions on the replacement and a genuine replacement battery.

I ordered the battery and tools to open the MBA. The order arrived at the promised date.

My Fix

The whole replacement took less than half an hour. Very simple, hassle free process.

My Advice

The tools ordered worked for the battery replacement. But, it did not help with opening the bottom cover. Luckily I had another set of tools for the bottom cover screws. Perhaps Apple changed the screws (I have a later model 2011 MBA). Please check to make sure you have the right tools.

My Problem

I battery issue with macbook air and keyboard issue with a older macbook, at first the folks at Apple were accommodating and sid they could replace the battery and keyboard for about $225, then i get a call saying there is water damage and they cannot just replace the bad parts buts all the insides of both computers for $1600

My Fix

I have never worked on computers in my life, in fact i am a tree trimmer and not used to being gentle with things, so i was concerned about my ability become a computer tech, but with the help of of Ifixit i was able to completely tear down my old Mac and rebuild it using a keyboard from a scrap computer and it works great! And the battery replacement on the macbook air was a piece of cake with the proper screwdrivers, fixed them both and added more RAM to the old mac for about $200, Power to the people Thanks IFIXIT!!

My Advice

If i can do it so can you, repair don't replace!

My Problem

As a musician doing outdoor gigs in Florida, my macbook air gets exposed to a lot of use above the recommended ambient temperature. Battery went stone cold dead.

My Fix

Repair was a piece of cake! iFixIt has excellent visual instructions. Very easy to follow.

My Advice

Get 4 small containers to put the screws in... There are 2 sizes of screws in the cover, and 2 sizes on the battery itself.
