I have a Macbook Pro 13, mid-2009, A1278 and the speaker broke it.

Can I put a speaker A1278 a macbook pro 13 mid-2012?

All speakers A1278 model work in any model of Macbook Pro A1278, regardless of the year?

I have good sound again, thanks.

2008 MacBook (aluminum).

The hardest part was starting the optical drives hold down screws, my jewelers screwdriver maginetic tip is weak.

Total time was about a half hour.

If all you have are Phillips screwdrivers, be very careful with the screws at the split of the bottom case and all of the internal ones. You may have to drop to a Phillips #000 if you don’t have a JIS #00, which appears to be the correct tool for them, based on the actual fit of the bits in my (iFixit) set.
