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

My Advice

Trust Ifixit

My Problem

Nothing exciting here - the battery had simply stopped holding a charge, and the condition of the battery had been reported by my mid-2010 13" MacBook Pro as "Replace Soon" for some time.

My Fix

The repair went just fine. I sat down to do it, and realized I didn't have the spudger I ordered (to pry off the battery connector). I still don't, because I had fingernails that day, and I was too lazy to dig the package out of the trash to look for it.

The repair would have gone a bit faster, but I had to take a moment to express my disgust that one of the mounting tabs on the old battery was broken, presumably from over-tightening the screw during a previous repair (had the logic board replaced at an Apple Store).

My Advice

This is a pretty simple repair. Not sure the spudger is needed - just pry the connector off carefully. Just take your time, and don't lose the screws when you remove them (I recommend laying them out in order, so you know where they go on reassembly - this will save you a little time).

My Problem

I battery issue with macbook air and keyboard issue with a older macbook, at first the folks at Apple were accommodating and sid they could replace the battery and keyboard for about $225, then i get a call saying there is water damage and they cannot just replace the bad parts buts all the insides of both computers for $1600

My Fix

I have never worked on computers in my life, in fact i am a tree trimmer and not used to being gentle with things, so i was concerned about my ability become a computer tech, but with the help of of Ifixit i was able to completely tear down my old Mac and rebuild it using a keyboard from a scrap computer and it works great! And the battery replacement on the macbook air was a piece of cake with the proper screwdrivers, fixed them both and added more RAM to the old mac for about $200, Power to the people Thanks IFIXIT!!

My Advice

If i can do it so can you, repair don't replace!

My Problem

When arriving home from a holiday, my partner's MacBook Pro was in a soft bag that he left on top of the kitchen counter. As he went into the garden, the bag collapsed and spread it's contents over the flag-stone floor - including the MacBook. Result, a bent upper case.

My Fix

Like a dream! Ordered the parts from ifixit.com, plus an ifixit t-shirt so I could feel like a pro completing the work. The parts & tools arrived in phenomenally quick time! I'm in the UK, and a combination of ifixit.com and FedEx made it feel like the package arrived in hours from the States.

Case replacement was easy as pie. All done, no hassles. Thanks ifixit!

My Advice

Don't leave your MacBook in a soft bag on the kitchen counter!

My Problem

Could not load discs into the Wii.

My Fix

Followed video advise on removing the drive.

My Advice

The plastic disc ejection mechanism simply was misaligned. I re aligned the ejection mechanism and put it back together. Everything working great so far.
