failed bluetooth section eh? no macbooks come without bluetooth?! these customer support people are ignorant af i talked to 3 different people and they all told me different stuff i'm pretty sure. Thanks. only $20 for a replacement card?! sweeeethmm... I think the customer "support" guy gave you the wrong idea about bluetooth.
Bluetooth is included. It's a second function of the same card that provides WiFi. There's no option that allows you to order a MacBook Pro without Bluetooth.
You simply have a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth card, with a failed Bluetooth section. It's certainly worth trying a replacement card for less than $20. The replacement job is not hard. Should take no more than 10 or 15 minutes. You do need the correct tools for that replacement. The link that MacCheetah3 posted above is a good one that shows you everything about the repair.
Here are the 13-inch instructions.maccheetah, i did not mention that i have the 13" ... do you think its the same method? i'll check this site out and see if theres a video for the exact job on the 13". so i have a wifi card with a failed bluetooth section? gotcha. so replacing it sounds like the way to go. i'll order the screw set and be good to go ya? do you think i'll have to deal with any software bs? thanks!
Yes, plug and play. The software is included with macOS.It's just a plug n play repair? Will I need to install some bluetooth software?
Thank you good sir.Here are the 13-inch instructions.
