My Problem

As I was heading to New Zealand to further my education, I've decided to replace the battery of my Macbook Pro as it was barely holding a charge after a few years of service. After consulting the iFixit guide, I made a decision to upgrade the laptop to speed it up. The parts changed are as followed:

1) 256GB Crucial MX100 SSD to replace the existing HDD

2) 8 GB Corsair ram upgrade (which is now replaced with a pair of 16GB Crucial)

3) Reapplying the thermal paste (Noctua) on the CPU & GPU heatsink

4) And of course, the battery itself

The battery was ordered from iFixit and the rest of the components were acquired from assorted channels.

My Fix

Instructions were clear-cut. However, the initial parts replacement were delayed due to the lack of a Tri-wing and Torx head screwdriver to remove the screws that was holding down the battery and the logicboard. Every component was disassembled and reassembled without a hitch after the appropriate screwdrivers were acquired.

My Advice

The guides are extremely accurate. It's really hard to mess up the repair unless you do not follow the instructions to a T.

My Problem

The battery wasn't charging. Needed to replace.

My Fix

Absolutely fantastic. I live in Brasil. I ordered it on Wednesday and on Friday fedex called me to deliver it.

I was on a trip with my family on the mountains of Rio de Janeiro and they delivered it there, for no extra money.

I saved more than 400usd, comparing to he cost of fixing it on an Apple Store in Brasil.

Very easy to change the batterie.

Totally recommend this website!

My Advice

It is forbidden to travel on planes with batteries like this, unless they're installed on your computer.

My Problem

replacement battery

My Fix

easy

My Advice

take it slowly - watch out for those buttons - take a photo before they fall out as they are fiddly to put back the right way

My Problem

Battery life was becoming too short. The batteries exhausted after only 1,5 movies on the plane..

In the beginning my MAC could do a full day's work on a charge.

Hope to return to these good numbers again.

My Fix

It was very simple following the excellent guide.

Although, nervous prying the battery loose knowing the possible risk of dammage/fire.

My Advice

I used a plastic putty knife to pry the battery to get a wider area of attack.

I could then also pry more powerful with a screwdriver between chassi and the putty knife.

My Problem

Keyboard connector sucks. The other ifixit solves the problem temporarily, since the connector keeps coming loose.

My Fix

I modified this method by using 2 staples already stuck together when I pried them away from the pack.

Per the method, I straightened, cut extra length (used pliers to move back-and-forth exactly where the bends are for a regular-sized staple), taped, bent ends using pliers, and fit snugly over the connector.

Another modification - I used a glue gun to dab a big drop of glue on each staple so it stuck to the connector. Then taped crosswise twice.

Tiny bulge against the back cover, but that just means it will hold it in place. Also, get this if you don't have it already (and if you can find it) http://www.amazon.com/iPearl-mCover-Zenb...

My Advice

Use a glue gun. Measure twice, cut (the staple) once. This is a lovely computer otherwise marred by a $@$*!& keyboard connector.

My Problem

old battery that drained fast

My Fix

instructions clearly laid out

My Advice

easy

My Problem

Old battery had very little life.

My Fix

Easily ordered all necessary parts from iFixit. Following the tutorial was very easy.

My Advice

None.

My Problem

yes

My Fix

I replaced the battery as instructed in the videos online .

My Advice

A few days later I noticed that the internal fan was working hard and computer was getting hot. After I performed a few resets of the CPU and RAM everything went back to normal.

My Problem

My original battery would show a charge to 100% but then would fail within 1-2 minutes of being unplugged, causing the laptop to shutdown. This of course defeats the purpose of a laptop!

My Fix

I bought the tools from iFixIt and followed the instructions available on their website. The repair came off without a hitch!

My Advice

Don't be intimidated by the idea of taking your computer apart to replace a battery. It really was a"No-Brainer" and a repair that nearly anyone can do. Be sure to have to proper tools though; which are available at little cost from iFixIt.

If I hae any other computer repair issues, iFixIt will be my first stop!

My Problem

No charge in battery -- didn't even recognize a battery present. The MacBook Air was 4 years old, so I assumed that the battery would be close to end of life even if the cause was not the battery, so a replacement would be needed anyway.

My Fix

Easy as 1-2-3. A few screws and that's it.

My Advice

I guess -- just be careful with the tab. Very easy to do.
