• MacBook Core Duo Upper Case Replacement

    Quote from cameronmoll:

    It lifts straight up.

    I'd suggest being careful and perhaps having help with step 12, as I have broken the connector piece at the end of the cable by pulling too hard/fast and having the connector stuck in the board and the ribbon dangling without purpose.

    Does anybody know of a good way to repair such a ribbon, or am I stuck buying new upper case units?

  • MacBook Core Duo Optical Drive Replacement

    Quote from bradleydad:

    I've done several of these without removing the optical drive, etc, and just gone directly to replacing the hinges from here.

    How did you remove the display portion of the clamshell without dislodging the display cable?
