Il Mio Problema
Original connector was visibly damaged when I purchased laptop years ago used. It worked but always made me nervous. Replaced MagSafe brick and this dc connector and it’s like new again.
La Mia Riparazione
Easier then I thought. Just tedious work with the small screws and small connectors.
Il Mio Consiglio
Follow instructions step by step and pay attention to how each connector is removed so they are not damaged. Also when removing my main board, the side closer to the external connectors was stuck because of the adhesive on the underside speaker. Took my time rocking back and forth until it was free.
