My Problem

The 500GB disk was running low on space and I needed a better one.

My Fix

Thanks for the online instructions and tools, following it step by step helped me a lot and was straight to change the disk.

My Advice

For Mac users, be sure to have the latest TM backup, also, new Mac OS will automatically do the online recovery to install the repair app, after that if you recover from your TM the process will be fine.

My Problem

My mac is perfect for what I use it for, want it to last longer so I figure replace the hard drive as my mac is 6 years old

My Fix

The mechanical part was easy, especially with the available guides.

My Advice

Use the proper tool for the job, whats great is ifixit has kits that come with tools

My Problem

I was removing a hard drive from a MacBook Pro before recycling the computer (dead main board) for security reasons.

My Fix

I was stalled for the lack of a T6 Torx screwdriver which you supplied in a jiffy (thank you) and when I finally got the shell open, what did I find? No hard drive. Then the boss remembers that when she was having that laptop diagnosed she had the HD taken out and put into an external enclosure to retrieve the data on it.

My Advice

I found the IFixIt video instructions clear and concise, the service wonderful but the fool's errand exasperating!

My Problem

Screen glass, display and top cover damaged due hard object dropping onto my wife's computer when in closed position.

My Fix

Repair went OK until having to remove cable display data cable retainer from the upper case. The retaining screw could not be removed however hard I tried - the result being that the display could not be removed. Had to resort to breaking the small aluminium bracket to make space for display to be removed. After that changed display and reassembled, less the bracket and one lower case screw which threads into the bracket.

Switched on and to my relief all appeared OK. Closer inspection of the securing screw shows excessive use of thread lock which may have caused the problem. No photos available - camera broken!!

My Advice

Ensure the highest quality screwdrivers are used and sufficient downward force is applied to ensure screwdriver tip does not slip out of screw head.

Not sure how a repair centre would have coped with this problem.

My Problem

Corrupted Hard Drive

My Fix

The instruction was very easy to follow. I did it within 15 minutes with a chance to clean the dust inside my MacBook Pro.

My Advice

No need to worry about removing the battery if you are being careful. The OSX installation was a bit nerve wrecking unless you know what to do.

My Problem

Driving me crazy

My Fix

Simple fix, very easy.

My Advice

Don't live with a noisy fan... just do it.

My Problem

My cat walked on my Mac-book and it crashed on the floor.

The screen broke in the meddle and the Apple store didn't want to repair it because too old (for them).

My Fix

I fixed it easily following the photo-sequence of iFixit web site,

However I suggest two improvements:

1. It's not necessary to use the Heating device and the suction cups, the screen can be removed with your plastic tool.

2. Be more SPECIFIC and CLEAR when describing how to remove cables: they are very fragile and a wrong movement may distroy them.

My Advice

Thank you. It works!

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

Don't know yet

My Fix

Don't know yet

My Advice

Model number for apple interim products should be more specific!

My Problem

I kept this computer because it had the wonderful 17" monitor that I loved for watching movies. But the once mighty 200 GB hard drive was another story. I had gotten used to an external drive for the iTunes and movies directory but I discovered that the moment I used the computer without the external drive the iTunes directory moved itself back to the local drive. I'd move it back and try to remember not to do it again. Eventually this and other things got inconvenient but I assumed that replacing the drive was going to require an expensive professional intervention or my taking a chance with my own personal repair inexperience. I hesitated forever until one day the drive failed and I decided I had nothing to lose.

My Fix

The repair went astonishingly well. Absolutely smoothly, exactly as the guide showed. I thought it was going to be like trying to do surgery on a cat, having seen the complex, tightly layered spaghetti/origami world of mac electronics in tear-down pictures. I had assumed it would be way to easy to twist, bend, tear, or break something in all of that. Instead it was easier than following a cooking recipe. It was mostly removing and replacing screws. Without the pictorial guide, though, and the correct tools I got through iFixit I wouldn't have had a chance on my own. I wouldn't have even known that there was something called a Torx screw, what size screws these were, or how to find any of that out. So really, the guide and the tools were 99% of what was needed. My job was the easy part.

My Advice

I would suggest reading the notes and comments people add over time at the bottom of the guide. There can be small variations between the same model devices. There are also little details that some people ran into problems with that their comments help avoid, things you'd only know by already having bent something or pulled something the wrong way. Or even suggestions that allow you to leave a connector in during the repair rather than completely pulling it out and then having to figure out how to get it back in. I added a particular method that may or may not be needed: I have often found that screws, after many years in a particular location, are not as interchangeable as when things are first being assembled. So I carefully put the screws into rows that matched the images in the guide and taped them in that position so I could replace them in the exact location they came from.
