The MacBook Pro 13" with Touch Bar earns a 1 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):
The trackpad can be removed without first removing the battery.
Proprietary pentalobe screws continue to make working on the device unnecessarily difficult.
The battery assembly is entirely, and very solidly, glued into the case, thus complicating replacement.
The processor, RAM, and flash memory are soldered to the logic board.
The Touch Bar adds a second, difficult to replace, screen to damage.
The Touch ID sensor doubles as the power switch, and is paired with the T1 chip on the logic board. Fixing a broken power switch may require help from Apple, or a new logic board.
