    Hey, I have a late 2008 macbook pro 15 inch and the bluetooth stopped working.

    Does anyone have an idea of how much it would cost to get the bluetooth board replaced and on how to do it? I cant find any directions for the 2008 unibody version, just 2009 and 2010.

    On the other hand, any idea how much Apple would charge me to get it fixed? Im out of apple care.

    Thanks guys

    To be honest, it doesn't really bother me that the Bluetooth isn't working lol. I was just wondering how much it would be to get fixed.

    I'm a little OCD in making sure my electronics are perfect lol :p

    And I've got some ocean front land to sell you in Arizona!

    Seriously to the OP... If it's that important, take it into the Apple Store and ask them to look at it and give you an estimate on fixing it... Since your machine is that old, you may be able to find parts on ebay.

    It could also be a software issue. If you have bootcamp installed, does it run there? How about a linux live cd?
