I didn't manage to get it off without breaking it so had to order a new one. which was a peal and stick.

mayer - Antwoord

I don’t understand, when do you need to remove this if it’s not broken already? Are there components underneath that can be replaced/fixed?

Ted -

Where did you buy the bezel? I have the same issue on a macbook pro 13 inch. Also, when you say “heat the logo baffle”, works with a regular hair dryer or better with something more powerful? Can the heat damage the screen?

Krazy Eight - Antwoord

I bought from :

if the part is already damaged, u can remove it without heat!

I went to the App Store today to have my MacBook Pro - 2017 with TouchBar- repaired and was shocked when the guy said that the final price would be not less than 700$! Only the logo baffle is cracked, like you can see on the main picture of the topic. However, he told me that it’s a part of the screen and they have to take the entire screen off to be able to change it. Sorry but, what the !&&* ? I can easily see that it’s possible change it without touching the screen - and that I could barely do it by myself-. So, was the guy an ignorant or is it really how they proceed to replace this part of the computer ?

Audrey G - Antwoord

hahaha, when I went to the apple store, they told me that too…. because they don’t have this small component, only can replace the entire screen.

@n0vem Hi, I have gotten the Logo Baffle. However, i tried to heat up and take out the old one but it seems to be pretty hard to take out. May i Know you used a hair dryer to heat it up or?

xuyinloveguardian - Antwoord

I did nothing to remove this part, without heat, i just pull it out the damaged pieces. just because i think use hair dryer maybe bad for my screen

@n0vem Hi, so you just tore it off with the tweezers? I don’t know how to remove it… And does the double sided tape hold strong, or will it fall off overtime?

Marco IsBlak - Antwoord

yes, it is easy to remove, and …the tape hold very strong, never fall off, never……, and….the tape is 3M9080A, very strong!

n0vem -

Did someone already do this reparation succesfully?

brecht.verhelst - Antwoord

Yes, it has even been easier than expected. Just be a little bit careful with your tweezers so you don’t damage any of the orange cables (see pictures 2 and 3). I took the 3M9080AB (black) tape which was recommended in the comment above. Result is perfect. Looks like brand new.

n0vem: Thank you so much for this guide!

Does anybody know if the replacement baffles you can buy out there will fit the 2018 models?

I haven’t found some for the 2018 models, they are all for 2016/2017…

Phi Zirker - Antwoord

I need help! I have followed this and all went well til 90%. At the end when the old buffer was removed my screen doesn’t work. All garbled up.

Anyone has any ideas? The cables seem to be fine. I can’t seem too see anything damaged…

Jernej - Antwoord

I screwed mine up too. Cables don’t look damaged but I’m sure it’s either a tiny microscopic fault in the cables or heat damaged the display while removing the old bezel.

READERS - DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS ON YOUR EXPENSIVE MACBOOKS. It’s too easy to break something and will cost you an arm and a leg to replace the entire display. I’m an experienced DIYer, done plenty of soldering and circuit boarding as well as Mac and iPhone repairs, but this one bit me in the ass.

Kevin S -

does this work on the 2018 model aswell

meteors89 - Antwoord

yes, every version of macbook

How do i know which baffle i should buy, i own a Macbook Pro 13” 2016 :) thanks for the tutorial! seems easy!

Andrea Jiménez - Antwoord

I broke my screen… so it should be done properly. Heating I suspect is very important.

mitchelledwards1984 - Antwoord

I have a 2018 13” model, does the one on taobao fit mine as well? And I do not have a heat gun, should i just use a hair dryer to slowly heat up and remove it?

Yuan Kang Lee - Antwoord

1、you can buy any part on taobao, maybe you can find a chinese friend to help you .

2、if that is really difficult to remove,you can use a hairdryer carefully ,you can use every heat things,just stay away from the screen,。

@n0vem could you please take a look at the crack below and tell me whether I should be worried about my screen getting harmed in the long run?

Many thanks!

The Clementine - Antwoord

sorry bro,i just damaged one time ,maybe next time i can make a video when it‘s damaged again , it is really easy to done this, trust me

n0vem -

I wen’t to apple store for a quote on the logo baffle - apart from asking for few kidneys- they told me that the entire screen in 1 piece of class. Therefore there is no way they can just replace the chin. Mine in a mid 2018 MacBook Pro with Touchbar. But reading this article, if looks like the chin bar is a separate piece. Can anyone confirm any changes in this in 2018’s macbook models?

Mike - Antwoord

It’s separate from the glass in all models as far as I’m aware. My guess is that Apple would rather opt to replace the entire screen in case a component was damaged beneath the logo baffle.

Either that or its profit 101: you can’t convince people to purchase Apple Care + if non-warranty repairs aren’t expensive.

Elijah Rodriguez -

Is it really difficult? I’ve just seen a comment about having issues after making this DYI, messing the screen and so forth can anyone give me their feedback on their experience with this? What are the probabilities of messing this?

Can I ask what you used to heat the baffle to get it off?

Jamie king - Antwoord

Why to remove if its a just a small crack!?? we can past the new one just above it right? Why to try and break the display. ! Just paste it above it. Simple as such.

Dr.Jagadesh Krishnamoorthy - Antwoord

Can you heaten it up with a normal dryer or do I need to buy the fancy iopener from ifixit or something like that? Can I heat damage other parts like the cables beneath, the display itself or even the battery?

Daniel Sta - Antwoord

can you just place it on top of the cracked one?
