  • Replace USB port on 15" rMBP?

    Anyone know of a video for this?
    I haven't done one before and just wanted to see what was involved swapping out a USB3 port on a macBook.

    Best to use low melt solder to remove the shield covering the contact points and then more low melt to get the through hole joints to come loose. I use a donor board for a new port same technique. I've only done a few, but all were successful, so it can definitely be done. Only pain part is once you get ready to put new port on cleaning out the old solder from the holes.

      Thanks John, I'll take a crack at removing one from a donor board and see how I go.
