MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010 Upper Case Replacement

1 hour


My Problem

Water damage to upper case/keyboard

My Fix

Great! The step by step guide, pictures, and reader comments allowed me to repair the computer myself, easily!

My Advice

Use the correct sized screwdriver! I was using a 00 Phillips head but it was slightly too big, and the threads broke on the head of the screwdriver. A 000 was best! Also, there are is a plastic mount and two small metal brackets (for the touch pad) that I had to transfer over to the new uppercase- so be gentle with your old upper case until you are sure you don't need any of the pieces.
