Important Tips Take Your Time Allow 1-2 hours for this repair and be patient. Most mistakes are caused by rushing through the steps. Be Gentle Remember that you are handling fragile hardware. Stay Organized Note the placement of screws and small parts as you disassemble the device. Keep screws and small parts from each step in separate, small compartments or containers, like drink caps, or laid out on a clean flat surface. Use a paperweight to hold your booklet open. Warranty Information We offer a lifetime warranty on any unused component that still has all protective films and stickers attached, or that is not functioning properly. You have waived the option for professional repair by attempting this on your own, therefore accepting responsibility for the outcome. The Apple warranty is void when the device is damaged, but further opening the device will void any supplemental insurance you may have purchased.
