简介

hi :)

This was original supposed to be a video of the full repair, but I screwed up and recorded my hands instead, also it’s very difficult to repair this and hold a phone to record at the same time. that’s why some steps may have been skipped, but I did what I could in the moment.

I am not a repair specialist, I was how-ever, after many failed attempts gave this one last shot and was successful! But maybe someone can follow this tutorial and make a video, with proper instructions.

I’m sorry for any bad English, punctuation, grammar or unclear instructions, this is my first forum and don’t usually do this kind of thing.

Another reason I made this was because apples repair service won’t last for long, ending 2020 for my model, and when it comes to and end, a lot of people are screwed.

Tips

1) Take your time and do-not rush this

2) I’m sorry for any bad English, punctuation, grammar or unclear instructions, this is my first forum and don’t usually do this kind off things.

3) DO NOT bend the hinges!

here’s a link for the plastic clips and spacebar, on Ali-express.

I’m not paying apple or another local repair store £500 to repair this. And neither should you, keep trying until successful, it’s very easy when you know what you’re doing/screwed up alot.
