    Hello

    I had a repair a few months ago now, although a couple of screws are coming undone on the shell.

    My question, can I tighten them without void the apple care?

    Sure. Just make sure you use the right size driver so you don't strip the screw head. Newer MBPs use a size #00 Phillips head.

    Thanks, all tight again... tight as I dare... I can't work out if things are too tight so I over tighten and rip the heads. So I just used 2 fingers and my thumb. :D

    Yes, but they need some Loctite - the blue kind the lets you remove them later. That's what Apple uses on them.
