Use this guide to replace a broken LCD.

  1. Insert the flat end of a spudger between the thin rubber strip surrounding the front display bezel and the rear display bezel. Do not try to insert the spudger between the thin rubber strip and the plastic face of the front display bezel. Use the flat end of your spudger to carefully pry the front display bezel away from the adhesive securing it to the rear display bezel.

    • Use the flat end of your spudger to carefully pry the front display bezel away from the adhesive securing it to the rear display bezel.

    • Do not pry against the fragile glass LCD panel. Also, do not excessively bend the plastic, as it may permanently deform.

    • Continue prying until the front display bezel is free along the right side of the display and behind the right clutch hinge.

  2. Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the front display bezel off the top edge of the display assembly. It may be helpful to insert and twist the flat end of your spudger to enlarge the gap between the front & rear display bezels as you work your way around the edge of the display.

    • Continue separating until the top edge of the front display bezel is free from the display assembly.

    • Be careful when prying near the iSight camera board, as it has exposed circuitry and is delicate.

  3. Use your spudger to pry the left side of the front display bezel away from the display assembly. During reassembly, be sure the small plastic pegs on the front display bezel (shown in red) mate up with the holes in the rear display bezel. Failure to do so will prevent the front display bezel from sitting flush against the rear bezel.

Thanks for this helpful guide. However, is it just me, or did you leave out the most difficult step in the whole process? How does one get the display data cable into the socket on the new lcd?

I thought exactly the same thing: towards the end, it gets really tricky and there should be a lot more details in the repair guide. I somehow figured out myself how to do it, but i think i wouldn't have dared to do the whole thing, if i had known how difficult it would be at the end. you need a lot of patience and sensitivity to fit the cable into the little socket.

great news.

I had a little accident to my Mac yesterday, just ordered the new LCD. I have a question though:

what is the little black cable for on the upper right? Cuz' mine teared apart...

The thin black cables that go up the right side of the screen are your Airport antenna wires and the one running up the left side goes to the iSight camera.

Hello Everyone!

I'm done with the repair. My MacBook looks beautiful with the new Anti-Glare iFixit LCD screen I love it. Getting the display data cable into the socket wasn't that bad. I could solve it in 5 minutes. But needed 4 hands :)

Everybody should try if the screen break and iFixit guys are really really helpful!! Thank you once again!!
