MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Late 2008 and Early 2009 Upper Case Replacement

45 minutes - 3 hours

Difficult

My Problem

I decided my Macbook Pro needed a treat so I gave it a glass of wine and poured the whole thing into the keyboard. It most have been dissatisfied with the quality of the red wine as it promptly shut down most of the keyboard and the trackpad.

My Fix

The repair went by without any big problems. The Phillips #00 Screwdriver broke pretty quickly though and I had to borrow another one from my brother. The T6 Torx screwdriver worked like a charm.

UPDATE: For the record iFixit contacted me on Twitter and offered to send a new Phillips #00 Screwdriver. Kudos to them for good service.

My Advice

Take a deep breath and don't rush through it.
