Il Mio Problema
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
La Mia Riparazione
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.
Il Mio Consiglio
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.)
