    Since my last MBP was a 2011, I've been surprised by the assembly of the 2013 retina MBPs.

    I'm exploring a repair on one, since I have to do the LCD/cracked screen. It also suffered a dent on the top case under the keyboard.

    As far as I can tell, authorised replacement parts here (battery, keyboard, case) are usually sold as an expensive assembly. But, I notice ebay is full of top cases only, from Asia.

    Is it possible to get the topcase only replaced by authorised repairer and not invalidate the Applecare? Or is the only "offical" way to fix the top case to buy the entire assembly and have it replaced.

    Thanks for any input

    I think if they detect that you have done any sort of repairs to the machine, not through apple, then your applecare might be invalidated.

    If you changed the ssd or something, then I think it is fine, but if you did a full top case replacement, then i think applecare might be void.
