    Nope... mine broke in 2016 just 3 months after the program had ended and they couldn't do anything for me.

    Problem was, I never knew there was a replacement program in the first place because they also did replace it even if it wasn't broken. Mine was wiggling for years but I didn't know it was wrong or could get broken.

    I ended up selling the broken MacBook Air to someone for 50,- that could use the display.
    Never bought a MacBook Air anymore after that. It was probably the worst computer ever made by Apple because it was also freaking expensive.
