MacBook Unibody Model A1342 Lower Case Replacement

30 secondes - 5 minutes


Mon problème

A few weeks ago the rubber coating released it self, caused by the heat, from the lowercase of our Macbook, end 2009 version. Because the Apple replacement program was not applied on this Macbook, I decided to repair it my self. The Macbook is in perfect state, including 4GB memory and running Yosemite, 10.10 OS X.

Ma solution

The repair was easy to do. The order (the lowercase and screws) from iFixit arrived very quickly, within four days to the Netherlands, well done! The Macbook lost some screws by the time, so I replaced them as well.

Mon conseil

Use a proper screw-tool that fits exactly to the small screws on the lowercase. I placed small feet, 3 mm in height, on each corner on the lowercase. So the heat can flow under the lowercase in the air.
