Mijn probleem

Nothing particularly the matter, I just wanted an SSD for faster load times.

Mijn oplossing

The repair went well. I was a little concerned I was going to mess something up, as I always am, and that my CPU wouldn't boot when I was done. Everything is so tightly packed into a mac, it makes for some pretty intense installations. I laid out a terry cloth towel on my bed and got to it. I didn't feel like clearing my desk off... I turned all the lights on, but still found a way to need the light on my iPhone sometimes. Everything went pretty smoothly, considering the difficulty. The only real issue I had was that, despite my best efforts, the IR sensor cable would not come out of it's socket. I tried with my thumbs, and the edge of the tweezers. Eventually, the wires came out of the connector, and the whole thing was scrap. Part of the IR connector is still in its socket. I'm just thankful it was something I didn't care about. If I need to control anything on my CPU it's done through an app on my iPhone. Getting behind the logic board is definitely tight and awkward. All things considered though, it is really not that bad of an install.

Mijn advies

Make sure you have really good lighting. It was a pain to have to angle my phone flashlight, or just hold it when I could really use two hands. Also, a spudger might have saved my IR connector, and it is not included in the kit. That connector was really stuck in there though. Good luck!
