    Hey guys,

    Thought i'd get myself a newer model macbook from eBay,

    Although it has some faults that i believe are repair-able but i cant find realiable instructions for one of the parts that need repaired/replaced.

    The charge port, it works, but only sometimes and it requires alot of fiddling to get a connection, so i wish to replace the port altogether.

    Its a 2009 model macbook with the supposedly non-replaceable battery. Im hoping i dont have to remove logic board, or worse, replace whole logic board.

    Any help/info is greatly appreciated

    You'd have to replace the logic board to get a new Magsafe port.
