MacBook Unibody Model A1342

MacBook Unibody Model A1342 MagSafe Board Replacement

10 - 30 minutes


My Problem

Mag safe on MacBook was damaged by my kids. No way to power the computer. Repair store said it would cost $275 to have it fixed. This was an older MacBook (2009) and I didnt want to sink that much money in it.

My Fix

Repair went great. Instructions were exactly right and easy to follow. Highly recommend. My first ifixit experience but won't be my last. Huge fan of this site now!

My Advice

Be careful disconnecting the small wires attached to the motherboard. Very delicate.
