  • Retina Keyboard Backlight Connector

    Does anyone know what the connector on the keyboard backlight is called on a Retina or where I might find one? I like to just replace that connector versus pulling the whole backlight layer so I want to stock that part but I'm not sure what that type of connector is called.

    No idea and I don't see the point of fixing a $10 backlight.

      Not money - Retina 13" - Pull logic board, pull side board, pull battery, pull trackpad back cover, pull and replace backlight versus about 4 minutes of soldering for a new connector. Very common repair as that keyboard backlight connector always gets mangled by spills.

        Buy the backlights and take just take the connector off then.
