    Hello there;

    I would like to ask for your advise as to any experience with a broken right speaker + subwoofer of a Macbook Pro 13" Mid 2010? I had mine gone off this morning and I'm thinking of where can I get the parts for it (Apple part #922-9057).

    I can simply do this on my own if I get the parts straight from an online store. However, it has also come to me if it would still be cost-efficient to buy it locally or have it repaired at the service center.

    Thanks!

    I just encountered a similar problem this week, with my Macbook Pro (13" Mid 2010). Has anyone had theirs successfully repaired? Is it hard to perform the speaker replacement by myself? I've replaced the hard drive and RAM of the laptop, but that's as far as my experience goes with regard to tinkering with the laptop.

    In my opinion, replacing your MBP speaker(s) is just a tad more complex than replacing the hard drive. It involves a couple of unscrewing and unlatching of wires and getting the speaker out and getting the replacing back in. I've done a couple on 2011 and 2012 models. My only issue was the screw top tend to break easily if too much pressure is applied, which I later read online was done intentionally by Apple. I don't know if this is the same with your unit model but better be careful and use the right tools. For instructions, ifixit.com is my go to site. Hope this helps.
