My Problem

The fan had a rattling noise and I decided to change also the hard drive if I was going to open my iMac. I bought a Seagate 2 TB hybrid disk for the replacement. The fan I bought it on eBay.

My Fix

Everything went fine, iFixit really helped me, thank you so much guys!!! All steps are clear and the strips fit perfectly on the screen. I was afraid that the screen could be not in the right position but my iMac looks like a new one! Now the new fan works perfect and I have a faster HD drive, Im very happy with the results.

My Advice

I recommend you to take a look to iFixit Youtube Channel. I read so many times the instructions on the web site but what really helped me, was to take a look to the videos. They are very well explained and will help you to understand all the procedure.

My Problem

Remplacement du disque à plateaux par un SSD dans un iMac 27" late 2012.

My Fix

Tout s'est très bien passé. Merci iFixit pour les tutos. J'ai juste manqué un peu de patience et fendu le coin en bas à gauche de l'écran

My Advice

Ne jamais faire effet de levier avec le "plectre" qui sert à décoller l'écran

My Problem

Failed hard drive in an iMac. Apple doesn't make it exceptionally easy to replace it, but it was worth doing.

My Fix

The ifixit kit had everything I needed plus clear step-by-step guidance on performing the replacement. Worked a treat!

My Advice

For putting the screen back on, it is better to have an extra pair of hands to help position it.

My Problem

Die HDD war zu langsam, also musste die SSD rein

My Fix

mit den richtigen Werkzeugen und der genauen Anleitung und dem passenden Neuteilen von iFixit, kein Problem. 30 Minuten war es erledigt.

My Advice

Unbedingt die Displayarretierung aus Schaumstoff kaufen, hab mich geärgert diese nicht mitgekauftt zu haben. Das macht es nochmal einfacher.

My Problem

My new $420 refurbished 2015 Mac Mini has security torx, so i couldn't replace the lazy HDD by an Intel 520 SSD... until i fixit !!

What is strange is that my friend Mac Mini, exactly the same, has no security torx but standard

My Fix

not so difficult, i think less time than 2012 mac mini.

My Advice

Very easy to upgrade to Full 2,5" SSD a 2015 Mac Mini, that become enough speedy for regular productivity work.

My Problem

The whole top of my screen was broken off, and after a while the cable controlling touch snapped. so after months of disuse i decided to fix it myself after going to a apple technical and them telling me it would be $200

My Fix

It was difficult but after an hour i had fixed it, i could not be more happy.

My Advice

make sure to repair any dented corners before placing the screen, or it will not fit in the housing

My Problem

The factory Seagate 3tb hd died.

My Fix

The iMac opening tool was perfect and the adhesive strips are top quality. The little blue tabs made it very easy to strip of the backing. They are also cut to fit perfectly, unlike the generic strips some companies sell.

My Advice

I used an HGST enterprise 4tb drive. I've had great luck with the HGST drives. This machine has the Fusion drive. Disk Utility recognized the new drive and automatically reconfigured the Fusion to the new drive. No command line required.

Also used the OWC cable to enable the iMac to get drive temp to properly control fan speed.

My Problem

The LCD display on my 2.2 GHz MacBook Core 2 Duo (late 2007) worked fine when it was part way open but went dark when fully open. I used it for several months while the problem got progressively worse. A little online research convinced me that I had a bad inverter cable. I discovered iFixit had the instructions for replacing the cable so I decided to give it a go. Why buy a new laptop if you can fix the old one for a few dollars?

My Fix

I got a few tools from iFixit and just followed the instructions. There were a couple of spots where I had to look closely and prod gently to figure out how things came apart. I worked slowly and carefully. It was fun. When I was done, the laptop worked perfectly.

My Advice

I put the parts I removed at each step in separate, labeled zip-loc bags. A desk lamp with a built-in magnifying glass was an invaluable tool. I took the opportunity to clean out years of accumulated dust and dirt. I even cleaned the exterior surfaces to make them white again.

The laptop worked so well that I replaced the hard drive with a solid state drive (SSD) and was amazed at the increase in speed. I am enjoying it more now than when it was new.

My Problem

I went cheap and did not choose the built in SSD when I purchased the iMac. Bad choice. The computer was really, really slow with the 1TB internal HD.

My Fix

Could not have gone smoother. Removing the old and applying the new adhesive strips was a bit time consuming, but not difficult.

My Advice

Machine is now lightning fast. Used a Samsung EVO 850 SSD. Also using Trim Enabler from cindori.org. This was money well spent and the guides were fantastic.

My Problem

Wanted to put an SSD in my new Apple Refurb 2013 iMac 27"

My Fix

Went off without a hitch (except that I scratched the !&&* out of my dinner table, oops!)

My Advice

If you're working on a surface you value put down a towel :)
