MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2009 LCD Replacement

1 - 2 hours

Very difficult

My Problem

old lcd display was broken.frontglass was ok,so i just wanted to change the lcd panel.

My Fix

i used the ifixit guide for lsd panel change.used heatgun on lowest setting to get the glas out with a 0.7mm thick guitar pick.the guitar pick was a real good advise in the rep guide.I also drilled holes under the fan to get temprature down and also install smc fan control.The job was fearly easy.it works well and no marks on the frontglass witch i put back on.the rubber edge had no damage after heatgun use.I am real satisfied.

My Advice

See the rep guide before and under work.Be relaxed.Take it slowly.Guitar pick ticknes o.7 mm nylon was real good to pry the front glass loose.use parts from ifixit.They seems to be of good quality.Never had a problem with parts from ifixit.
