MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 LCD Panel Replacement

Very difficult

My Problem

A sharp object collided with our screen at an accelerated rate, causing a cracking/shattering of the LCD screen.

My Fix

The first estimate of repair at an undisclosed store was $1,200, then at another undisclosed store $460, and thankfully to ifixit the final cost was only $250.

The repair went great! I have little to no electronic experience or tools but a willing friend came over and the two of us went step by step through the ifixit guide. It was a seamless procedure with clear confidence inspiring instructions.

My Advice

You can do it! and ifixit can help!

*a second fully operational computer is helpful to view ifixit guides during the repair
