    I'm replacing the topcase on my A1369 today due to water damage. Originally, the unit has a "french-canadian" topcase and I'm replacing it with a normal US topcase. Should I expect any issues?

    Also going to replace the battery while the unit's open. Can I do them both simultaneously, or will the keyboard region swap cause problems?

    The keyboard has the same logic board connectors for all regions, so you should be fine. If you're already doing it and have the battery, then go ahead and do that too since the two are completely independent parts.
