Great guide. I do recommend ordering the recommended tools, especially the spudger. There isn’t a lot of room to get the battery cable disconnected, so some of my other spudgers weren’t sturdy enough or wouldn’t have fit. My computer is working again and I didn’t have to pay a king’s ransom and wait 3 weeks (hey, I’m in Montana! I’m lucky to find anyone to fix a computer). Thanks!
