My Problem

The trackpad was either failing or erratic when working.

My Fix

Smooth. Everything you need to know is in the instructions.

My Advice

Before you drop your computer off for repair, give the IFIXIT guides a try. They will save you a lot of downtime and money.

Also, keep liquids away from your devices.

My Problem

Well, I did not have an actual problem it was just that the battery that I have had has already passed the 1000 cycles mark which means it can no longer hold the same charge as it previously could. I was still getting a decent usage time of 3+ hours. But I just decided that it is about time to change the battery and at the same time save money while doing so - I live in Dubai, UAE where it would cost around double the amount of buying it from iFixit and take around 5 working days to do it, which is just ridiculous.

My Fix

The replacement of the battery went very smoothly as you can see from the video attached, no challenges whatsoever. It took me around 8 minutes to carry out the repair I just used time-lapse footage to compress it for the viewers pleasure as well as the site's restrictions.

My Advice

Since I have already given my Mac some hardware upgrades along the way 1. 16GB (2x8) Corsair DDR3 1600MHz RAM 2. 500GB Samsung SSD 840 EVO. I thought that it would be worth it to replace the battery to further extend the life of my laptop. So in other words only replace the battery if it is actually damaged or you already have invested in valuable upgrades and you would like to keep the laptop. I bought my Mac in March of 2011 and just replaced the battery in hope for another 5 years!

My Problem

My battery had a good amount of charge cycles and I felt it was time to change the battery.

My Fix

The initial repair was going smooth until I figured out I needed a special screw driver. So I hoped on iFixit and ordered it. Once it came in I was able to complete the job. The screwdriver was a little bigger than the screw but it worked.

My Advice

Follow the guide

My Problem

Old battery not holding a charge.

My Fix

Repair was simple and straightforward via the videos provided on the website. Computer holds a charge longer than 2 hours and I didn't have to buy my wife another expensive apple product. Win for everybody involved.

My Advice

None

My Problem

I received an OS X warning that I needed to replace my MacBook Pro's battery. I was willing to pay Apple to replace, but the Apple Store would not promise to have battery on site for a quick replacement for a scheduled Genius Bar appointment. I depend on my computer so I needed a fast turn around. In addition, Apple does not consider this battery user replaceable.

My Fix

The repair was quick and simple. I now have a laptop I can use while on the go without worrying about my battery life.

My Advice

I wish I would have not wasted my time trying to arrange the replacement with the Apple Store and just ordered the battery from iFixIt in the first place.

My Problem

The battery life had was less than 90 minutes.

My Fix

I ordered a battery and related tools. Used I-fix-it directions and replaced the battery in less than 30 minutes. Now operating normally.

My Advice

Go for it. You can do it!

My Problem

My old MacBook Pro's battery was swelling out of the case and was a bit outdated.

My Fix

Replaced the swollen battery and pushed the aluminum back to its intended shape.

Kicked the RAM up to 8gb

Replaced hard drive with 1TB Hybrid drive

The whole process was quick and painless. The guides offered on this site are absolutely perfect.

My Advice

Save money. Instead of Apple charging you $100+ for labor fees, choose iFixit. Couldn't be happier.

My Problem

Battery not holding charge as long as when new.

My Fix

Repair went great. Instructions were right on. Not sure new battery is lasting any longer though. Will give it a few cycles and see.

My Advice

Clean the dust out of the computer while you have the back off. I used a computer air can cleaner.

My Problem

The only way my MBP would run is it had to be hooked up to the charger.

After investgating I concluded that the battery reach the end of it useful life. Replaced the battery everything is back to normal.

My Fix

I searched the internet for a new battery and I felt most comfortable with the people at ifixit. I called to make sure I was ordering the right battery. I order the recommend battery, tools, and followed the step-by-step guide and everything went as smooth as silk.

My Advice

I recomen that you follow the step by step guide and everything will go ok.

My Problem

I had a battery issue in my MacBook Pro. I removed the battery using the tri-point and a few hours later, my girlfriend who is attending college 6 hours away informed me that she had a battery issue in her MacBook, too. I decided to ship the screwdriver I had to her so that she could use it at her leisure and order me a new one.

My Fix

Since it was a battery issue and since it was Apple, I ended up making an appt with the Genius Bar to get an OEM battery straight from Apple. The only way that I am aware of to get my hands on an OEM battery. When you pay more than $2,000 for a laptop, I don't want an $80 knock-off damaging it. The repair ended uneventfully...after waiting a week for an appt that suited me, they replaced it for $125.

My Advice

Everything went pretty smooth. The Apple store was understanding. I had to remove the battery to get the laptop booted back up so I could take an image of my hard drive. The end-result was mostly, I had to get my data and send my tri-point to my girlfriend...so I bought myself another one. Advice, by two of these if you have more than one MacBook in your circle :)
