Introduzione

La sostituzione del case superiore offre anche il vantaggio di una nuova tastiera e un nuovo trackpad.

Nota: il cavo piatto è fragile ma sostituibile. È collegato mediante un connettore ZIF sotto il touchpad.

    I used this guide plus the Thermal Paste guide to resolve my MacBook RRS (Random Restart Syndrome) issue. My MacBook would randomly restart after the fan kicked into high speed. When I removed the heatsink I discovered an an irregular patch completely free of thermal compound of about 15-20% of the area on one of the processors. I removed and re-applied the thermal paste. I ran a memory test utility overnight that previously caused a restart after a couple of hours, and the probelm seems to be solved. TIme will tell.

    This guide was seriously helpful, so thanks for putting this together. I found a thick ribbon of dust/muck whatever between the fan outlet and the exhaust port that was almost as dense as felt. My fan must have been fighting like crazy trying to pass air through that blockage, which explains the high temps and excessive fan noise. Wish I'd done this sooner...

    Thanks again!

    Just R&R'ed the fan in my black MacBook Core 2 Duo tonight. Took me 30 minutes tops and I was taking my time. These instructions are SPOT ON! Great job ifixit.com! Two thumbs up!

    Follow the instructions exactly as you see and have a piece of paper taped to the table next to you that you can outline all the screws you took out so you know where they go back in. I expected this to be a LOT harder, but it was one of the simplest repairs I've ever done to ANY computer!

    Piece of cake--or should I say gum. If you don't have a magnetized screwdriver, load up a stick of gum and chomp on it until it's needed then use a bit to retain screw on the driver. And if you should tear the black tape, or if the silver tape won't stick any more, just bubblegum it together. The instructions were clear and correct, which made for a very simple repair.

    My computer will not charge when plugged in. It will stay on as ling as the plug is in the wall however if the power source gets disconnected it will shut down immediately. I removed the battery and put it back in that did not help. It worked and charged fine 2 days ago. I have a backpack with a laptop storage area. I went to hang the backpack up and it fell and ever since the battery is not functioning. Is there some fix I can try or is my only solution to replace it? I would have thought that dropping it would affect more than the battery?

    Beth Tomasek - Replica

    Better leave the back pack where it cannot fall. Hindsight is so much better than foresight . I learned the hard way too!

    Many of the tiny screws in this project were quite sticky. I found some blue Loctite residue that must have been when the Apple repair shop worked on the laptop years ago. I have found that it is important to hold the correct driver firmly down in the screw and then just tweak the driver in short bursts to loosen it before unscrewing it with a smooth turn.

    Patrick Langvardt - Replica

    Be really careful while doing this to not use too much force while doing this step, because the plastic disc can break off and it can be a cosmetic issue along with functionality issue. This happened to me first hand so please take my word for it…

    Probably worth mentioning at this stage that the caddy you propose to use should not have lugs on the front corners, like those used in unibody 1278 and onwards.

    I think I found the way to have the new battery to charge!!!!!

    See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRYIMDQx....

    Essentially, you have to follow a very precise order: 1/shut down the computer, 2/take off the magsafe connector, 3/remove the old battery, 4/put back the magsafe connector, 5/put the new battery, 6/power on, each time leaving a few seconds in between.

    please pay attention that screws are native to metal pieces otherwise you are going to be a stupid like me trying to unscrew unsuccessfully until I reread the guide

    Lay the screws out in a ”timeline” like a circle, Then when you reassemble just start from the end of the “timeline”

    decristoforo - Replica

    The screws have to unscrewing positions, first they unscrew from the whole body BUT if you move the lid without entirely removing the screws, they will remain attached to the lid. This I find much more recomendable!

    Wytchkraft - Replica

    I found when putting this back in that I had to use a spudger to work the mesh/foam into the slot where the memory cards are so the bracket would lay flat again when screwed back in.

    • Rimuovere le 3 viti seguenti:

      • Due viti con testa a croce n. 00 da 14,5 mm (testa: 5 mm di diametro x 0,75 mm di spessore)

    • Se le viti restano incastrate nel case, è possibile utilizzare un cacciavite magnetico per recuperarle.

    • La vite più corta delle tre va al centro.

    I couldn't get the top two 11mm screws to come out, even with a magnetized driver. When I tried to keep unscrewing them, they clicked like they were spring mounted, and I didn't have any trouble leaving them in and continuing on.

    The top two screws didn't seem to want to come out, and I saw no reason they had to, so I left them there, put a little piece of tape over each so they wouldn't fall out.

    You need to replace the shorter middle screw first, otherwise it won't tighten later since it won't quite reach the bottom.

    colmcostelloe - Replica

    for me this was the hardest part especially the two 14.5mm that dint want to come out. keep turning the screw and slightly pressing the case down, once the screw is a little use try using finger, screw and a non metallic point to try to push them out. they arent tight but they are very hard to unscrew i almost gave up, but believe me they come out with patience

    manochu - Replica

    I also did not find that I needed to remove the two 14.5 mm screws. I unscrewed them but they seemed designed to stay with the case and I found it did not seem to affect anything to just let them stay there.

    • Rimuovere le 3 viti seguenti dalla parete posteriore dello scomparto della batteria:

      • Una vite con testa a croce Phillips #0 da 3 mm. (Testa: 2,75 mm di diametro)

      • Quattro viti con testa a croce Phillips #0 da 4 mm su entrambi i lati. (Testa: 2,75 mm di diametro)

    • Presta particolare attenzione a queste viti, si possono spanare facilmente.

    On this step, I encountered a problem. The middle screw was screwed in very very tightly. As a result, I ended up stripping the screw despite being very careful. I tried to use a wire cutter to remove the screw, but that did not work. I actually ended up using the wirecutter to cut the bracket off, leaving the screw screwed in. This did not affect anything. I am typing off of my replace macbook top case right now.

    The point is, BE CAREFUL! but if something does go wrong, don't fret. There are solutions.

    LaNoobieFixer - Replica

    On a Macbook I just tore down, I found that in this step, the 4mm screw was on the left, not the right. I thought maybe someone else had it apart before and accidentally switched them so in staying true to these instructions I tried to reassemble with the 4mm screw on the right. I found it would not go all the way in. I ended up putting it back together with the 2-3mm screws on the right and the 1-4mm screw on the left.

    scottgriz - Replica

    I didn't look closely at these screws when I took it apart, but when I went to put it back together (two weeks later) I found I had two longer (4mm?) screws, and one short one. So I put the longer ones in the two end spots, the short one in the middle; they all seemed to go in okay. (Maybe the screws got changed around the last time the cracked top case was replaced, when the MB was in the Apple shop under warranty last year.)

    HandyMac - Replica

    Me too. I had two longer 4mm screws here, and one 3mm screw. And I didn't pay attention to what holes each screw came out of. I put them back in a random order and it seems fine.

    To confirm what HandyMac and colmcostelloe found, some MacBooks have one 3mm and two 4mm screws in the rear wall of the battery compartment. On the one I worked on, the shorter 3mm screw came from the middle hole.

    please note the position of the screws because when you are reinstalling them you might get confuse. this ones go below or under (sorry English inst my first language). There are two screw holes this steps are for the ones below.

    Cong Trieu - Replica

    For me (A1181), there were two shorter screws and one longer. The longer went on the left (a shorter screw wouldn't catch). (Not the middle that is currently in the instruction. But that could be model difference.) The middle screw started to strip the head but using a slightly larger phillips allowed me to get it out.

    Are you sure you have a proper screwdriver? From my experience you really need to use the correct size and not just something that seems to fit.

    Jakub Clapa -

    Olivia, you can screw back the longer screws that go on the inside. In the photo marked with orange. Then open and close the lid of the MacBook a few times. This will fit the 4 screws more properly in the steel inner-frame and they can come a little bit loose.

    Close the lid again. Leave the inner screws untouched and begin with the outer screws (marked with red) with indeed a perfect matching screwdriver head (with a big and long grip for your hand). This worked for me perfectly without damage. Success!

    S van Dam -

    When reassembling, do not fully tighten the two 11 mm (orange) screws. When the plastic starts to flex, back it off until the strain on the plastic housing is released and leave it at that. The two 7.25 mm (red) can be snug.

    With some of the screws that can happen. I had it too. This did it for the MacBook I was repairing: 1. Open the MacBook. Then press firm but gentle on the upper case with your hand or fingers while trying to loosen the screw with your screwdriver. 2. I used a different screwdriver from the same size diameter but with a much larger hand-grip. Success!

    • È presente un cavo piatto del trackpad e della tastiera che collega il case superiore alla scheda logica, pertanto non rimuovere completamente il case superiore.

    • A partire dalle vicinanze del display e lavorando attorno alla parte anteriore del computer, aprire il case superiore. Per eseguire l'operazione, può essere utile adoperare un plettro per chitarra medio o di tipo A.

    • È probabile che il case superiore sia bloccato presso la connessione sopra l'unità ottica. In questo caso, liberare prima tutti gli altri lati, quindi procedere a tirare verso l'alto il case superiore da entrambi i lati dell'apertura dell'unità ottica.

    As is reported above, there a 4 friction tabs that connect to the keyboard. If they do not stay in place and stick to the keyboard, the keyboard will not go back on. Just remove them and put them in the clips, with the solid clip wall to the outside of the unit, and put the keyboard back on. Do this before reconnecting the keyboard.

    David Higgins - Replica

    I had no problem at all in this step, the left side was already unlocked when I open the MacBook, the right side was a little tricky but i was able to pull it out in less than a minute

    manochu - Replica

    The front left had an annoying little metal strip between the outside of the case and the tab. It's very easily bent, so the tab was caught on it. I spent a good deal of time trying to push and pull various things (and even just yank the @$!^ thing off), but eventually I found that if you undo the two screws you are told not to in step 7, the battery connector can be pulled up and out, leaving enough horizontal room to pull out the metal strip (with a little bit of coercion). I left it out when I put everything back together.

    James Pearson Hughes - Replica

    Thanks for the tip. Saved me!

    Joe -

    Because this step requires some force, make sure to double check that you got all your screws out. I finally got my gumption up to apply the necessary force required to pull up the upper case, and after 5 minutes of pulling, I look and see that the reason it wasn't coming up because I missed one screw. Ugh.

    Also, before you just shove your hands under the upper case, prying about, think twice: I cut my finger pretty bad on a sharp piece of metal.

    Thomas - Replica

    When reassembling, take some care to align the tabs on the right hand side next to the optical drive. Rock and slide these tabs into position. Then work from right to left, as the rest of the case is quite easy to put back together.

    Andrew Dent - Replica

    I took my mac apart yesterday to clean out the trackpad properly and after getting some 'help' from my grandfather (he lost 2 screws and snapped off a bit of the uppercase but i didn't have the heart to ask him to leave it alone) i tried putting the uppercase back on. it fits perfectly but the middle section closest to the screen appears slightly raised and when i go to screw in the four screws on the exterior of the laptop i can't because the hole is not at all aligned (and two of those four screws are very long). anyone know why this might be? can it be fixed/is it a common problem?

    Eliza - Replica

    If the upper case sticks above the optical drive, don't pull straight up, but up and to the left at the same time.

    frood - Replica

    Wow, pulling both up and to the left made all the difference for me, to unstick the keyboard around the optical drive.

    Neil Steiner -

    The plastic around the edge is very thin and cracks easily, so be gentle while using the opening tool.

    Henry S - Replica

    On the right side above the optical drive there are little plastic braces that latch the upper case to the main body. This is the reason why the upper case might stick here. If the above step is not working, also try to gently push the upper case sideways away from the optical drive after freeing all other sides. When reassembling make sure the braces are in their slots of the main body and not attached to the upper case. If you cannot fit the upper case evenly over the optical drive, that's probably why. In this case carefully remove them and slide them back into their slots before lowering the upper case.

    Hendryk1982 - Replica

    this guide was awesome. this step was easy for the broken macbook i salvaged and noticed because i got a factory replacement keyboard quite recently on my macbook in use, the 4 clips above the optical drive were TIGHT - it took quite a bit of pulling up before it came loose!

    • Tenendo il case superiore sollevato, estrarre la linguetta nera del cavo argentato dal relativo connettore.

    • Se la linguetta nera non è presente, è possibile utilizzare uno spudger per rimuovere delicatamente il connettore dall'alloggiamento. Il connettore è alto, pertanto verificare di estrarlo sollevandolo direttamente.

    • Nel caso di rottura del cavo del case superiore durante la rimozione, è possibile acquistarlo separatamente e consultare questa guida che ne semplifica la soluzione.

    • Con il case superiore rimosso, puoi sfruttare la possibilità di rimuovere polvere, peli, ecc. La cosa migliore è usare una bomboletta di aria compressa; se usi un pennello assicurati che sia realizzato in un materiale (di solito peli animali) che non genera elettricità statica, potenzialmente distruttiva per l'elettronica.

    • Al momento del riassemblaggio, sono presenti quattro levette in plastica grigia sul lato della tastiera in corrispondenza all'unità ottica. Queste devono essere installate nelle rispettive fessure, affinché la tastiera si agganci correttamente.

Note that the actual keyboard is sandwiched between the top case and an aluminum backing panel that is plastic welded together. Because of this, the keyboard can not be replaced without modification to these plastic weld points.

I actually purchased a replacement keyboard only to find out that I should have purchased the whole top case unit.

Many thanks for this guide. I was able to replace my old fried keyboard with no problem!

Wow. I have used this guide religiously 3 times now and I can not thank enough for it to the provider. You won't find anything more informative, explicit, graphic, descriptive but simple and basic oriented out there, and without leaving key details out. I think you did a FANTASTIC job with this guide, and thank you again. I'm very happy I found this link.

By the way, much better and appropiate than those dozens of youtube videos.

On step 10 the last screw, the one farthest away from the optical drive, would not come out. My screw driver is fine and the screw look ok but it will not come out. I'v been trying for 30 minutes now.

My first time using an iFixit guide. Brilliant! So clear and accurate. Appreciate the comments of other users too. Alerted me to problems that might (and in fact did) arise. Really helpful. Thanks guys! I'll be back!

Hi,

I bought this macbook model used a couple days back: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/ma...

I have opened it up a couple times since and must've messed something up. The responsiveness of the keyboard declined with time (over a couple days) and now the entire keyboard is non-responsive and the trackpad is very glitchy at best.

Would this purchase and fix solve my issues? Is there a possible other culprit?

Thanks

just great. used the guide when I had trouble fitting my new hard drive. used fixit kit containing screw measurement tool. would recommend using as the small screws do to tend to lookalike when you're knee deep in parts.

Thank you so much for creating this guide. Not only did it revive my black MacBook Core 2 Duo (2007), but it allowed me to continue my work with Photoshop as well as Illustrator and Indesign without shelling out $1500+ a year.

Could i use a backlit keyboard replacement instead of the original?

I keep finding mixed answers,but really i haven’t opened the computer to find out on my own.

Just wondering before i start. (I do realize that is lazy on my part,just wanted to know if someone has done it)

Thanks.
