    I got a macbook pro from a friend and it had some water damage. When I was disabling it, a component fell off.

    I don't know what it is but all I am trying to do is get it work. Might be a stupid question but do I really need it? lol Thanks to anyone ahead of time who replies and sorry if I am posting in the wrong area.

    Well I assumed I did, I just figured I'd ask if otherwise. But do you know of a way to find it?

    Well, quite honestly, from the looks of those board I would say - throw it away. There is corrosion everywhere.

    All off the corrosion wiped off with alcohol. Did a full wipe down. I can have the board fixed i think. I just really need to find the part and if I can't I am going to send it out

    This. From the looks of it it isn't worth saving/fixing.

    You can find plenty of good information on this thread:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1122338

    Despite the thread's title, it isn't limited to the 13 inch MBPs, and you might find your model there, or where to find information for it; it has become a very long thread, with a lot of really good how-to information.

    I hope that you can save it—good luck.
