    My wife spilled Mtn Dew on her MacBook Air which fried the WiFi card and seems to have messed up the battery and track pad too.
    I was looking at ifixit.com and Laptop Parts Expert for those parts and was wondering what part supplier you all have used and liked.
    Thanks!

    I would buy a used OEM wifi card and trackpad from eBay.

    I use replacement batteries from Amazon (Ansanor, Egoway, and Sloda).

    Batteries, wifi cards, and trackpads for the 13" mid-2013 to 2017 Air are completely interchangeable.

    Might try checking out OWC - Other World Computing.

    Rob, eBay is your friend... and you can get parts fairly cheap!

    Don't go to OWC for MacBook Air parts... if you had to source parts from a reseller then get your parts from ifixit web site. I have found parts for my MacBook Air from eBay at a fraction of the cost. Just know what you're looking for when sourcing parts off of eBay.
