    hi all,

    I need to have the keyboard replaced in my Macbook Pro 15" Unibody Late 2011. I bought a new keyboard and have begun the disassembly up to and including removing the motherboard. It has gone very well, but I realize now that, because of my limited vision capabilities, I will not be able to successfully *re*-assemble, after replacing the keyboard.

    So, I am looking for an experienced Mac Tech who has done these keybaords and can pick up where I have stopped. Of course, I have saved and identified all parts & screws.

    So far, net searches have not yielded anything?

    An independent computer repair shop should be able to do it.

    I do hope that you've recorded where all the screws go.

    I've had people brought me their laptops completely disassembled and think that somehow I know where the all screws go.

    Location would also be key in this request -- I wouldn't worry about the screw locations on this -- as someone who has done hundreds of these for that generation, I've got 'em memorized.

    Tube, thanks very much for your reply! We've only got one Mac "independant" here (Louisville, KY) and they will only do "upper case" replacement. :(
    OTOH, yes I have all of the screws in seperate bags, clearly marked where they came from...

    Hi Willie -- I'd love to help ya (Im in Phoenix, AZ) but I am afraid of the logistics involved and shipping it might cause issues along the way (specifically, the logicboard being exposed to static as its not mounted in the machine). I would hate for you to think I killed your Mac :(
