    Anybody know where I can find a tutorial on how to replace the reed switch on a 12.1" 2001 Dual USB iBook? And where can I purchase the part from?

    Thanks.

    Not taking credit for this, but a little googling revealed someone who did it:
    If you have the parts, here is the link
    These guys also sell the switch, and the repair manual for $50, can't vouch for them, never used them.
    Good luck

    EDIT: Oh, didn't see you ordered the part, give the 1st link a try. I found that and other by searching for: ibook reed switch, so you might find a better one.
