My Problem

After six years, my battery could barely hold a charge.

My Fix

The repair took ten minutes, and was super easy thanks to the tools I bought along with a replacement battery. The instructions for how to replace the battery were very clear, and everything's been great since!

My Advice

You absolutely have the ability to undertake this repair. It couldn't be simpler.

My Problem

My mid-2009 Mac Book Pro was running so slowly that is was useless. After a little research I figured I could up the ram from 2GB to 8GB. Wow! What a difference. My Mac Book functions like new. This is a worthy upgrade and an easy one. You pop off the back cover and the ram is held in place by a couple of clips.

I also purchased the Y1 Tri-Wing screwdriver and it worked flawlessly to remove the battery. I had previously purchased on on Ebay and it just didn't work. Avoid the ones on Ebay and buy it here.

The next thing I need to replace is my track pad which is no longer recognizes clicks.

Overall I am pleased with my Macbook but I have had to put some money into it. So far, I've purchased a new battery, new hard drive, ram and we can add track pad to the list.

My Fix

The repair was easy, straightforward and worth it.

My Advice

If you mac is running slow, consider a ram upgrade. If you need to replace the battery, get the tri-wing screwdriver.

My Problem

The faceplate was cracked and dangling.

My Fix

The repair went great the instrutions were perfect and Ivery satisfied with the website and guidence.

My Advice

No advice here it was pretty simple.

My Problem

Battery needed to be replaced on a Macbook Pro 15" 2011. So, we bought a new one from iFixit along with the tri-wing screwdriver.

My Fix

The iFixit guide made it way too easy. I did it with one eye closed and one hand tied behind my back to give myself a challenge.

My Advice

This is easier than making coffee. Takes about as long too.

My Problem

My Macbook Pro 15" Unibody (eary 2011) Battery need a replacement because it's already dead for quite some time now and don't have time to give to apple service center.

My Fix

My Problem

As the title said, the battery inflated itself on the inside. Don't ask me how it happened, it just happened. It almost damaged the trackpad, but I quickly removed it before it can do anymore damage.

My Fix

Replacing the battery was easy. It took less than five minutes. Something interesting did happened. As the days went by, the old battery continued to inflate itself, even though I removed it. Still hasn't popped.

My Advice

If something like this happened to you, remove the battery as soon as possible. Also have a Y1 Tri-wing Screwdriver ready. Without it, that battery won't be coming out.

My Problem

original battery needed to be replaced

My Fix

perfectly -- very easy and I am not very mechanically inclined. The pictures and description were easy to follow and very detailed.

My Advice

IFIXIT is a TERRIFIC web site!

My Problem

Macbook becoming really slow and just freezing. Also running hotter than normal. Did all the recommended resets and tried 3 times to get Time machine to back-up hard drive but it could never save more thasn 24 percent before failing.

My Fix

The installation of the new Hybrid hard drive went pretty well, formatted hard drive and installed Snow Leopard from disc and applied all updates, up and running no problems. Installed Mountain Lion and all updates and then updated to Yosemite. Wow what an improvement over Mountain Lion. Runs better than ever.

My Advice

Hybrid drives are the way to go if you don't have the money for a SSD

My Problem

My partners Mac book pro died of the age old problem,the suicidal glass of liquid H20 that dived of its own free will across her laptop, causing said mac to go to that great mac store in the sky.

After many varied techniques of drying and with every appendages crossed finally approached the genius desk at local mac store to find that even Dracula could bring this body back from the dead.

Mother board gone and various other organs deep kentucky fried.

Store unable to suggest ways of getting data of hard drive except by replacing entire inner workings at the cost of $2000+ and then no guarantees.

So bough brand new pro for $1600 with all the bells and whistles.

And tripped the light fantastic to your friendly ifixit video archive to learn how to retrieve data.

My Fix

Easy as ordering a large slice of lemon pie, following my handy Ifixit video and with my handy $13 purchases at the ready, which arrived 3 days after ordering them in Australia from the states, faster than the man of steel can change in the oldie telephone booth.

Repairs and recovering of full data took 10 mins. And a very happy partner. And a host of spare partners for my own pro, long may it live.

My Advice

Never give up the ghost in the machine, and what ever the Apple Wizards recommend always double check from a separate independent source, love the product not so sold on the after service.

Ya got to love Ifixit

My Problem

The problem was that the original battery could no longer hold a charge, was expanding within the Unibody and the computer could not function without being plugged into an outlet.

My Fix

I checked out local shops anticipating that they would not have a specific battery such as the one for the Mac pro on hand, but tried anyways. Searched the web for a day and came across iFixit. I was a bit hesitant, but I was in dire need. iFixit made it super easy. I watched the video, they provided the necessary materials list for purchase at a reasonable price in terms of convenience and ease. As mentioned earlier, I needed the battery soon, so I forked over the 2 day mail fee and received it on time as was predicted. The battery swap was quick and mess free. Now, the computer works great!

My Advice

iFixit was super helpful and I would stronger consider them if you're trying to fix something yourself. Do a bit of research first on what your looking for and then weigh your options. In my case, this was the most idle situation.
