Keyboard Replacement - Trackpad and Heatsink Removal?
I'm going to replace the keyboard of an otherwise mostly unused Macbook Pro 13" mid-2014. It came from a family member who spilled whiskey on the kb. I've tested it out and everything looks fine. Mic, trackpad, battery, etc.
I'm looking at this hefty guide and I'm wondering if there's anything I can avoid since I'm just trying to get at the keyboard then put everything back. If you've replaced the keyboard on one of these I'd love to hear about your experience.
- Do I need to fully remove the trackpad, or can I simply disconnect it and continue on?
- Is it possible to leave the I/O, Heatsink, and Logic board in one piece? Probably not, but I thought I'd ask. It's all going right back into the machine.
- Is it all right to reinstall the trackpad and batteries with the same old adhesive I just pried off?
I have the Electronic Toolkit and thermal paste, etc. I'm looking at ordering this item for the replacement.
Es esta una buena pregunta?
