With one of the best engineering teams in the world, that they still make big errors like this and pretty much refuse to take responsibility or at least make it so others can do repairs is sad.
I like my old Macs but want to upgrade someday, at this point I hesitate.
Thank you iFixit for all your hard work detailing the differences and advocating 3rd party repair!
Thanks so much! I lost my manual and just don't want to bother watching long boring videos when a quick step by step is all that is necessary!
I haven’t done a brake brake job in years and was concerned about special tools, didn't need any. Only took an hour.
One point though: all modern cars are all metric (except body bolts on US built cars, usually), this actually took 19mm and 22mm sockets.
