MacBook Unibody Model A1342 MagSafe Board Replacement

10 - 30 minutes

Moderate

My Problem

My power cable connector kept overheating and melting the inside of the connector. Eventually figured out that the MagSafe board needed replacing.

My Fix

Smooth, no problem - followed a tip from a user to skip from step 6 to step 18, that saved a lot of work and it went fine.

My Advice

When disconnecting the display data cable, you lift up the little plastic tab connecting to the shiny metal - that's a clip. Then pull the connector out. In the instructions this says "grasp the plastic tab and rotate towards..." but it's not clear.
