MacBook Air 13" Mid 2011 Logic Board Replacement

3 hours


My Problem

Logic board diagnosed bad by local repair shop after got whit screen and nothing to else. I ord Ed a lifetime warranty replacement from IFixit for a good price after reading through repair and seeing I could do it myself. I ordered their tools to make sure I had quality tools I would use again. That tools but overkill on price.

My Fix

Very well. Rated difficult, but this as quite easy compared to iPhone and iPad requires I've done.

My Advice

Print out the guide in color, single sided. Use tape to secure all screws on print out on the photo so right where they came from out. Keeps them ordered and easy to out right back in where they were. Read comments on the removal of the logic board to screen cable; spludger in photo isn't in the right place for removing the cable (lift the lever with spludger, the use tweezers to remove the cable by pulling slowly toward the corner of the computer case. So easy).
