    hi guys, i just joined this forum because i've searched everywhere and cannot find a thread or guide for macbook screws. i wanted to replace the upper case because there was a huge scratch on it and the replacement part was only $15...

    everything was going great until my cat jumped up onto the table where i had all of the screws organized. most of the screws fell off the table and i'm pretty sure i got all of them but they aren't in the proper order anymore. now i am computerless... i really want to use my macbook again but i don't think it's possible.

    is there any way to figure out the screw order so i can put it back together and get it working again? :confused:

    Determine precisely which Macbook you have. Then hop on to youtube and look for the service videos that people have made. You might be able to take notes and figure it out.

    Another way might be to see if you can find an authorized Apple repair shop and see if you'll give you a copy of the service page for your model Macbook.

    Good luck. Repairing notebook screens sucks. There can be two dozen screws depending on how far into the panel you have to get.

    Take a picture of each screw and I'll tell you where they go.
