SSD Liquid Damage Repair

So a while ago I sold a PC to a friend of mine who builds gaming rigs. Long story short the liquid cooling system a different friend had rigged up before I bought the PC off him ended up leaking all over friend No. 1's SSD. He left it for a while and when he came to run it nothing showed in device manager or BIOS. He said not to worry that it's just something you come to expect in that line of work, regardless I've felt bad about it ever since but didn't really have the know how to attempt a repair and he wouldn't take my money. Since then I've had almost 3 years hands on training doing an electronics apprenticeship and am pretty confident in board diagnostics and fault finding so since my friend still has the hard drive I was wondering whether it'd be worth me trying to fix? Could it be something as simple as cleaning the board with solvent to get rid of any liquid? Or would it be likely whatever coolant my mad scientist of a mate put in there (think he told me it was apple scented air freshener or something...) has cooked the tiny micro components on the board or even corroded the connections? Thanks in advance!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I would think at this stage it would be beyond help, I mean there is a slim chance it would be recoverable but it would be a lot of work and expensive. I would call it quits if it was me.

There is a handy guide here if you want to give it a try...

Yeah that's what I thought, still may as well have a look as a bit of practice, if I'm looking at spending more than it's worth then I'll give up on it. Cheers for the guide!

i think after 3 years of it being damaged there will be more damage than it had at the start

Sorry, should've been clearer. I didn't mean it'd been 3 years it was closer to a year ago but I only really hit that learning curve a few months ago in all honesty. Still I'd imagine there'd be limited chance of it working after that amount of time either. Thanks!
