    Get a new one. I went through three of these on my macbook pro 2009 before I replaced it.

    Unless you're interested in electronics, and have a soldering iron and what have you, don't attempt it.

    The charger contains a big cap and there's up to 400 volts on those pins. I got shocked by it once, and it wasn't fun. Note that was while disconnected from mains :) so careful with this stuff.
