My Problem

I had dropped my laptop because my dog jumped on my lap and since then the right speaker sounded blown.

My Fix

I took the afternoon of, poured a glass of cold beer and sat down with the patient. Carefully I followed the instruction on the website through my IPad. Using the tools I bought off this site, I operated on my laptop. I took it apart, realized the right speaker was shattered, replaced it and put it all back together.

My Advice

It all worked out wonderfully. Do not be afraid to try to fix things yourself. Be patient, attentive and read out all the instructions before sitting down to do all the steps. It helps and you won't be surprised when everything is ripped open in front of you.

My Problem

Broken retina display

My Fix

Very smooth

My Advice

You can do it yourself

My Problem

Factory battery was on its last legs at only 450 cycles.

My Fix

The repair went perfectly. Tools were excellent, and I'm please to report that unlike the cheesy third party no-name battery I was expecting, ifixit sent what appears to be genuine Apple parts. The battery showed 6770 mAh. Very nice. Easy job, guide was dead on.

My Advice

Be very careful with these tiny screws, make sure to get the driver seated correctly...you don't want to strip these. Also, as with everything, don't overtighten. Easy job

My Problem

The left fan on my Macbook Pro suddenly started emitting a wicked loud noise. I thought the computer was about to explode. But the computer was working fine, and it took me a few minutes to isolate the fan as the source of the terrors.

My Fix

The repair kit came insanely fast--like a whole week earlier than I expected. I pulled up the instructions on the iPad and went to work. The difficulty rating was high, but I was able to get it done in less than an hour without any problems. (And I've never opened a laptop before!)

My Advice

I pulled out a couple teacups. As I disassembled the Macbook, I placed the the different sized screws in separate labelled cups. Made reassembly a breeze.

My Problem

The fan doesn't work any more

My Fix

Really easy to access the fan can be replaced quickly. The only little problem is to connect the new one. The spudger help but it's not easy to do it

My Advice

as said in comments step 3 & 6 in guide are not necessary

My Problem

Fan stopped working. Turned out my lazy-self got a piece of a shreddie stuck inside. Regular for me; irregular for a laptop.

My Fix

Everything went according to plan except the driver (P5) stripped. iFixIt dispatched a replacement NEXT DAY! Wow, what service.

My Advice

If you have multiple P5-bolt-burdened devices though, get the high-end driver.

Also there's a rubber air guide/seal on the original Fan that you have to peel off and stick to the new fan - as the replacement fan doesn't include it - no biggie, just FYI!

My Problem

The batteries were old and needed replacing.

My Fix

Things went without a hitch, though the P5 screwdriver did end up stripping.

My Advice

Be careful not to accidentally use the P5 in a T5 screw.

My Problem

Macbook Air battery had died, and while plugged in the laptop ran at 50% CPU which was so painful, i immediately looked at solutions to replace the battery.

I checked the Mac Store and other repair shops, and they all charged around $250-$300, so I thought to myself, why not fix it myself?

I had come across ifixit.com in the past when the battery was nearing the end, so it was a no brainer to come back especially after doing a price comparison. Saved around $150 after all was said and done, and have a Torx screwdriver for future needs (and picking my teeth).

My Fix

It was so incredibly simple with the guides on ifixit.com and took no more than 30 mins. Most of the time was spent unscrewing the tiny screws and making sure I had them in a right order by placing them in the order I took them out.

My Advice

Replace it yourself - saves you money and you get to admire the architecture of your MacBook Air. I was quite impressed by the slim profile of the battery.

My Problem

I had spilled an entire cup of water on my MacBook while it was closed and on my bed.

My Fix

The repair was so easy. The instructions laid out which screws were different so I was able to lay them aside and not get anything mixed up.

The repair guide was so well put together and easy to follow.

My Advice

Follow IFixIt and get all your repair guides. Because they are so thorough and well put together.

My Problem

128 GB was not enough once my company changed our document management policy. I wished I had bought the bigger SSD. Fortunately ifixit had the goods.

My Fix

Went well. Battery connector was different than in the video but it was pretty clear.

My Advice

Start by making a bootable USB drive, I used Diskmaker X. Then make sure you have a good time machine backup. It took an additional 2-3 hours to get the backup restored and everything updated to the latest minor version of OS X. Some software had to be registered again (MS Office), Goto meeting, etc.
