My Problem

My laptop stopped being able to hold a charge. Left more than a minute unplugged the system would shutdown.

My Fix

Easier than I expected. Strangely only 4 screws were holding the case, either the others fell out or were left out by apple repair in the past.

My Problem

My fan was making a weird noise. I didn't know if the fan motor was dying, or if some debris was the culprit. In either case, I needed to open up and have a look. Unfortunately, I didn't have the special pentalobe screwdrivers to open up my MacBook.

My Problem

My sister accidentally dropped her Macbook Pro Retina after owning for more than 4 years. The warranty had expired a long time ago and the people at the Mac store gave an estimate of at least $700. When my family told me about this, I told them that was ridiculous and to order a new display from ifi . . .

My Problem

The battery would die within an hour and the fan would heat up.

My Fix

I followed the video and used the penta lobe and torque 5. I also managed to clean the fan while I had the computer apart. It is holding a 5 hour charge now☺

My Advice

Make sure to buy the penta lobe screwdriver. It made the job painless.

My Problem

Broken display.

My Fix

Great!

The guide at iFixit made it very simple. I still almost broke the display socket i think. Wished for higher resolution pictures, but exept for that: flawless

My Problem

I am a certified Mac technician, and I found a deal on a non-functioning MacBook Air. I isolated the problem to the cheap third-party battery the previous owner had installed.

My Fix

It went great! Changing out a battery is one of the easiest repairs you can do on an Air, and this went off without a hitch . . .
