MacBook Core Duo Upper Case Replacement

10 - 20 Minuten


Mein Problem

Right and Left arrow keys stopped working

The actuator key below the track pad was sticking.

The bezel was cosmetic .

Mac Store wanted almost $400.00 to do the Fix

Meine Reparatur

When I removed the screws with Fixit instructions The some of the screws were in the wrong holes. this unit had been fixed at a

"mac "repair shop. The screws are in the proper place now.

I used the plastic bag method to tear it down. Placed screws in a small plastic bag and numbered them to match the step in the instructions. Made reassembly real easy.

I had to use a "C" clamp and two blocks of wood to compress the

case and the keypad together to get the the three screws in the battery case in. Your screwdriver is toooo long.

I made one 60mm that is just the right size. Try it!!!!

The replacement worked perfectly, i am still getting used to the

"F" key flacement.

I guessed the tape on the Bezel was to hold in place. After the dry

fit and some minor adjustments i stuck it together and all fit.

Mein Rat

Go buy a can of Compressed air first.

Get a 10mm paint brush. Clean the cracks and crevices.

Get a small scotchbright pad to clean the contacts on the case.

The Bezel can be changed without removing the screen from the case. I had to file the edges of the bottom inserts to get them in the frame. (Too much grime.)
