Hi! I did this as the bluetooth was not working on my macbook air (after water damage). Once I replaced it, instead of a "bluetooth not available" dialogue, Bluetooth options now do not appear in the System Preferences window, and in the system report, it just says "no information available".

Is this a connection issue, did I get the wrong card, or did the water damage actually destroy the antennae? Wifi works fine both before and after replacing the card.

Hi,

i opened up my Mac and cleaned it after water because it was running slow and the fan was going crazy. IT worked and I hadn’t no notebook issues when I ran apple diagnostics but now I can’t see all my wifi networks or even connect to my phone wireless hotspot And it keeps saying password invalid wen it’s always right!

The wifi shows the same networks like 3 of them but there use to be at least 30 as I live in an apartment block. Is this a airport problem or antenna??

I cannot get the airport card antenna wires to connect to the new airport card. Is there some trick to getting them to snap in place?

for connecting antenna wires to airport card. You need to hold in place with tweazers then push down with finger or blunt spudger. be careful as you dont want to damage to connector if not placed perfectly in place. ive damaged one before so if it doesnt feel right dont apply to much pressure. reseat and try again
