My Problem

battery was swollen

My Fix

it went well

My Advice

follow the guide

My Problem

MacBook 2009 late model Unibody. Computer would shut down when not attached to power cord. Replaced battery and so far it has solved the problem.

My Fix

Easy as long as you have the tri - wing screw driver and correct phillips head screwdriver.

My Advice

Do not over tighten the screws. The first time I put the battery in and discovered that the track pad no longer worked. I undid everything and did not tighten the screws as much and the track pad worked. I found that after I installed the battery if I gently placed the back cover on with out attaching it with screws I could check to make sure that the trackpad worked and then I screwed the 8 screws in to really complete the repair.

My Problem

The MacBook wouldn't power on and when plugged into the charger, the charger was green and the battery indicator light would blink green but no workie... If you removed the battery, it worked... A quick google search. IFixIt popped up first and said "Here's how to replace the battery and order this!" Ordered battery along with the Tri-Point Y1 Screwdriver and received it quickly

My Fix

Took off bottom of MBP, used Y1 screwdriver to remove the 3 screws holding in the battery... inserted new battery, used said screwdriver to reinsert previously removed screws... reattached bottom of MBP. Hit power button and then ARMAGEDDON AND THE END OF THE WORLD!!!!

Just kidding, MBP turned on, battery charged. *MAGIC*

My Advice

Order the Y1 Screwdriver, or else you'll screw up the screws when removing the battery...

My Problem

The 500GB disk was running low on space and I needed a better one.

My Fix

Thanks for the online instructions and tools, following it step by step helped me a lot and was straight to change the disk.

My Advice

For Mac users, be sure to have the latest TM backup, also, new Mac OS will automatically do the online recovery to install the repair app, after that if you recover from your TM the process will be fine.

My Problem

Battery status changed to service needed and I didn't want to send away my computer for days to someone that can't receive it without an disclaimer that I need to backup the Hard drive before.

My Fix

Easy fix, had already replaced the hard drive before so was not that big difference to change the battery.

Found some small round plastic pieces flying around inside the case and after a while of investigation I realised that it was from the plastic feets from the casing that had fallen off.

My Advice

Make sure to use the correct tools for the job.

My Problem

The battery needed replacement

My Fix

Just followed the instructions and everything went smoothly except the Phillips #00 screwdriver was worthless. Wouldn't really grab the screws. Used my own #00 screwdriver and all the screws came out easily.

My Advice

Don't buy the Phillips #00 screwdriver!

My Problem

A few weeks ago I was drinking a cup of lemonade over my laptop.. nothing I wouldn't normally do or hadn't done before. It was a humid day and when I lifted the glass to take a sip, a droplet fell onto my trackpad. I didn't think it was a serious matter so I wiped it off with my finger. I did notice that some moisture did get into the bottom crease; I ignored it. A few minutes later, the bottom inch of my trackpad wasn't working. The trackpad wouldn't sense my finger moving on it. Then the crusor started moving on its own, switching the desktop back and fourth, zooming in and out of websites on its own and opening applications on its own. There was no controlling the crusor. It became so annoying and frustrating that I had to have it repaired. I looked into Apple's Genius' doing it and they charged a whopping $169 for parts and labor (plus tax). When I shared the news with my boyfriend he told me about ifixit. I found the part and tools I needed to do it myself. All together cost was MUCH less than Apple's Genius! THANK YOU ifixit!!!

My Fix

Using the ifixit guide that I found via the search bar, I was able to follow along the really easy steps and replace my trackpad! Easy breezy! My trackpad is back to normal, working like a charm!

My Advice

Don't drink ANY beverages near your Apple Keyboard/Trackpad! Avoid the headache and frustration!! Lol If you do and it becomes damaged, use ifixit!!! Fast Shipping too!

My Problem

Laptop Battery dying

My Fix

Apple designers decided they no longer wanted drop out batteries forcing users to take it to the repair station or crack open the case. IFixit had the tools and complete step by step instructions. Even tricky hidden screws. No surprises, good value, recommended.

My Advice

Follow the instructions, helps to have a second device to read step by step while working on repair. Otherwise print them out.

My Problem

Battery of Mac needs to be replaced

My Fix

I was very ☺ with the results and the
