Macbook Pro 15" Unibody Upper Case
2 - 3 uren
Keyboard did not enjoy the glass of wine as much as I thought it would. Needed replacing.
Ifixit was great! They quickly sent a great product. Mint condition - quick delivery.
Tool recommendation was perfect. Purchased those and they did the trick.
The guide was extremely useful. However there was one step missing. Forgot to take a photo. But there is a piece that needs to be removed from the existing body in order to do a full replacement with the new body. Will put details in next block...
In the guide to installing the macbook pro upper case mid 2010 15"
There is one additional piece to remove as it does not come with the new upper body piece. On step 36, and 41, 42, 43 you can see a little plastic bridge piece that crosses the back of the keyboard. The optical drive and hard drive back on to this when they are in place. It has two screws holding it in. It needs to be removed and placed onto the new unit.
Thanks ifixit folks - great service!
