Actual photo of a Macbook Pro 13-inch keyboard replacement taking place. The keyboard of Macbook resides underneath all the components of your Mac. It is secured by numerous screws or rivets, depending on the model of the Mac. To replace the keyboard, the entire logicboard assembly has to be removed. Then close 100 screws have to be unscrewed and screwed back in. The back light and other components then have to be reinstalled. The work is very time consuming and tedious. Apple Authorised Service Providers do not just replace the Macbook Pro keyboard.
They replace the entire top case with consists of the aluminium faceplate with the keyboard screwed in place. The good thing is that it is easier and less time consuming to replace, but customers end up paying a lot more for a Macbook Pro keyboard replacement.
If you have no love for your work, you can probably skip 10 – 20 screws and the customer won’t be able to tell the difference. The backlight might also be misaligned, resulting in uneven lightning of your Macbook keys. Cheap isn’t always good.
We have had a few customers who came to us because after minor replacements by other Mac repair shops run by foreigners, their Mac was not able to boot up. The shop in question charged them for the replacement part and offered no compensation or solutions as to why their Macs does not work after the repair. Another customer who brought her Mac to us because another repair service was not able to repair her Mac. After opening it, we realised that the microphone cable was broken.
