One USB-C Port Not Working - Repair Process Question?
The front right USB-C port on my MacBook Pro with Touch Bar 13” (2018) doesn’t work. Never has. It doesn’t charge, it doesn’t recognize devices, etc.
What would a repair of this one USB-C (Thunderbolt, etc.) port likely entail? Will the entire logic board or will they just be able to replace a single small part in the store?
I’m NOT eager to have to mail this off and/or have major guts from a brand new Mac replaced. Maybe it’s just a loose connection or something, or maybe it’s a bad port. Either way, I’m curious what folks here think.
I looked at the tear-down, but couldn’t tell much. Any help here is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Hi, were you able to resolve it? I'm having the same issue with one of my type c ports on a 2019 Macbook pro. I was hopeful and took it to Apple store, and I was told to pay $900. I'd rather just buy a new one than to pay that amount of money

Mine was eventually resolved by replacing the motherboard (under warranty). Prior to that, they replaced the USB connector boards twice and each time only fixed the issue for a short time.
I'd still recommend attempting the USB port replacement first - as that's a relatively inexpensive and simple repair to do yourself. If that fails, then consider a new logic board or replacement Mac.
(Unless it's under warranty... then have Apple look at it and follow their recommendations.)
