My Problem

Replace logic board; replace HDD with SSD; move HDD to optical bay; upgrade RAM.

My Fix

All in all, everything went well. Considering that this was my first repair ever, it took me much longer (4-6 hours) than indicated (40-60 mins). Also, during the repair I had to watch a couple of video tutorials on YouTube, because sometimes the guides alone weren't sufficient.

My Advice

To anyone who's going to do this repair, make sure you also get a 5.5 mm Phillips screwdriver. During the repair I came across a step which required this particular screwdriver, but I didn't have one since it wasn't mentioned on the list of required tools of the logic board replacement guide.

Furthermore, there is a Phillips #1 Screwdriver listed as a required tool for this repair, but I didn't use it since I managed to carry out that particular step using a Phillips #00 Screwdriver instead.

Also, at the end of the logic board replacement guide it says: "To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order". This is slightly misleading, simply because in doing so you would omit a very important step, namely to apply new thermal paste first. Therefore, I would advise to either include or refer to the 'Applying Thermal Paste' guide at the end of the logic board replacement guide.

My Problem

The battery on my Slate tablet was in its final throes, so I decided to take to the place of purchase - national chain of office supplies, which hall remain nameless. I hoped they could change the battery there even if I had to wait for them to get one in stock, or they could send it out. I couldn't open it myself because of the tiny screws. Well, the kid looked at it and said they couldn't do anything and if I sent it to HP it would likely cost more to have them service it than it originally cost. I didn't want to give up just like that, so I went back to the internet and after looking at discouraging videos that involved cutting and soldering wires Ifound you guys.

My Fix

I ordered the inexpensive tools from you and a battery from another site, followed the tutorial you have posted, and was done in less than 10 minutes. The battery is charging as I write this, but I can see that the job was a success. Between the tools and the batteries I spent less than $60, which is about a third of what the tablet originally cost, so I'm really happy.

My Advice

The experts aren't always expert, so don't give up. This job was a snap, unlike most of my hardware store undertakings, which usually take 100 times longer than I planned and require at least three trips back to the store.

My Problem

My track pad was not working on my Macbook Pro 2010 mid year version. I took it to a repair shop. The problem was the battery was damaged and was pushing up on the pad. I had them put in a refurbished battery. After using it awhile I was not satisfied with the battery. I decided to work with IFIXIT and replace the battery myself. I usually take all my repairs to my rerpair shop. However, after watching the videos, reading the step-by-step guides and reading coustomer's comments I decided to give the repair myself.

My Fix

I was a little leary when the website said the repair was "easy". For some reason, things are not always easy for me. However, to my surprise, it was easy! The video, the guide and the comments were all helpful. Thank you teammates.

My Advice

Use the website for the tools, videos, guides and comments.

My Problem

La batterie de mon MacBook Pro commençait à s'essouffler après 5 ans de bons et loyaux services. Il me fallait donc la remplacer. La batterie livré par iFixit est exactement la même que celle d'origine, j'ai donc retrouvé les performances et l'autonomie de mon MacBook Pro comme s'il venait de m'être livré.

My Fix

Malgré les dires d'Apple la batterie se remplace très facilement. Celle-ci n'est pas collée comme sur les derniers portables d'Apple mais retenue par deux vis, Il suffit de dévisser les dix vis maintenant le coque inférieure, de déconnecter la batterie et de retirer les deux vis pour la sortir de son emplacement et la remplacer par la nouvelle batterie.

My Advice

Nhésitez plus pour remplacer vous même votre batterie sur un MacBook Pro mi 2009. Suivez le tutoriel iFixit et tout devrait se passer sans problèmes. Méfiez-vous tout de même des batteries tierces et optez plutôt pour une batterie d'origine.

My Problem

The machine only had 1 GB Ram installed

My Fix

Easy : just follow the guide step by step

My Advice

Don't worry, just take your time to follow each step.

My Problem

My white unibody macbook was having problems with the trackpad. After days of searching the internet, trying software fixes, cleaning, checking battery, etc, nothing worked. I finally decided to go for it and buy a new replacement Trackpad with screws, the #00 Phillips Screwdriver, and the Y1 Tri-wing Screwdriver. Total cost with shipping for everything was $96.00.

My Fix

It took me less than 30 minutes to remove the old trackpad, clean around it, and install the new trackpad. My old macbook now works like new - well, at least the trackpad does. Follow the MacBook Unibody Model A1342 Trackpad Replacement guide on the ifixit website, and you will have no problems. Super easy to follow and replace.

My Advice

Take your time, and move slowly. You do not want to do any more damage to your macbook.

I highly recommend buying the Phillips #00 Screwdriver and the Y1 Tri-wing Screwdriver. It is worth it to have the right tools, and you will not damage any of the screws.

Be very careful when removing the wiring ribbons connecting the battery and the trackpad. Break one of these ribbons, and your repair is over until you get a replacement.

I would recommend cleaning around the topcase where the trackpad sits before installing the new one. Dirt, lint, dust, etc trapped here will cause problems for even a brand new trackpad. I cleaned mine with a cotton swab dipped in a little rubbing alcohol.

Don't waste any time trying to repair a faulty trackpad. Just drop $100 with iFixit, and your trackpad will be working like new in 30 minutes. Super easy fix.

My Problem

mid 2009 MBP - dead in the water. A couple years ago this particular machine one day just stopped. Heard the bong, got to grey apple logo and that was it. PANIC! As I had a gigantic job deadline I literally ran out the door to the nearest Apple store and bought another one, sent my time machine backup to it and was back in business in a couple hours. Years pass. The kid has been begging me for an entree into the walled garden of Apple and I finally remember the dead machine.

My Fix

Couple of google-minutes later I surmise "it's the HDD dummy — &/or the Logic board too, but mostly maybe the HDD.

Ordered up a Crucial 256GB SSD known to work in that machine and these tools. When all had arrived, I placed iPad with the iFixit manual, machine and tools in front of him and said if you want it, fixit. And so he did. Every step was logical and clear. My 12 yr old had no difficulty executing them.

My Advice

The battery connection was the one place where he got too nervous and required help, as it was an extremely tight fit and required much patience to release. Everything else was very straight forward and he had a working laptop with an SSD (which I'd earlier cloned from another machine running Mt.Lion). All the iFixit tools performed perfectly.

My Problem

The lock button was broken and the iPod was always locked despite the position of the switch.

My Fix

It went great. The guide was very informative and made it easy. I took my time and went very slowly reading each step multiple times.

My Advice

The plastic opening tools are not very helpful. If you can get the putty knife in the case without them, you can skip that step. Also don't be afraid to be a little rough with the iPod when inserting the putty knife, as I had to and I still didn't irreversibly bend the case. Ultimately just allot a good amount of time and take your time and it should go well.

My Problem

I'd had my Mac since 2009 and never serviced the battery. It was finally starting to show and the battery life was getting worse and worse.

My Fix

I was nervous but the repair was super easy and the guide/videos made it really easy to follow. For someone who's never opened up any type of computer it was just as easy as they said it would be.

My Advice

Definitely doing this next time. I didn't want to go to the apple store because they wouldn't give me an estimate and they tend to charge just to get the estimate. No need to pay an expert to do this.

My Problem

Battery replacement

My Fix

Haven't fixed it yet, but I am working on it.

My Advice

The tools are really useful for fixing your Mac book! You can replace your battery, hard drive and many other things yourself.
