A little more complicated than I thought

MacBook Unibody Model A1278 Front Display Glass Replacement

50 Minuten - 2 Stunden

Very difficult

Mein Problem

The glass on my 13" MacBook's screen developed a spiderweb crack spontaneously - have no idea how it happened.

Meine Reparatur

It was a little harder than the instructions indicate because the glass was broken pretty badly up to the edge of the screen. The instructions show somebody replacing a nice, whole piece of glass, but why would someone do that? So, for the record, removing little shards of glass from the adhesive on the edge of the screen is a MUCH bigger pain in the ass that simply peeling the old one off. Now I know why Apple refused to do it (in favor of just replacing the whole LCD).

Mein Rat

Even given the difficulty of removing little shards of glass, I'm still glad I took the time and saved the moolah.
