My Problem

Problem solved by myself, with the tool Tri-Point Y1 screwdriver for replacing the battery! Without the screwdriver is just now way how to remove your battery.

My Fix

Very easy to replace 5 min max!

My Advice

If you have the same issue, just buy the tool screwdriver Y1 and a new battery! Thats'it! :)

My Problem

Trackpad getting hard to retain a click and drag

My Fix

Had to go in twice. Gave up on removing the trackpad the first time, but after it was back together, I remembered that I did not connect its connector. They, I remembered the WD-40 trick; used a cotton swab; the tiniest flathead screwdriver I have (as the #00 seemed too large); prayed a bit, and got the screws out (although I had to put a brace underneath the surface of the trackpad so it would not move while applying pressure on the screw). Did not even consider replacing the brackets. Glad there were spares of the "tiniest screws ever made". No instructions regarding bracket replacement anyway.

My Advice

Need better advice on removing those tiny screws, and a triple-000 phillips, I believe.

However, it is perfect. (And, it was a mid-2010 13" Macbook Pro, not the selections that I cannot edit, nor were they selected when I started!)

My Problem

The old battery was not holding a charge.

My Fix

Replacing the battery was as easy as everyone said it would be. I had no problems.

My Advice

Make sure you have a well-lit workspace.

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!
