Liquid damaged Macbook Air A1466 Dead, no power – Repair

Macbook Air A1466 Dead, no power no image no charge light. Apple had quoted customer for an entire logic board replacement at stupid £££. As we know, Apple NEVER repair anything, just swap out the entire inside at great cost to YOU and the environment ! Where here we fix it. These two corroded areas were responsible, corrosion removed, 2 capacitors replaced with one needing to be re-routed as the pads they are soldered to were toast ( the red areas ) – This area is responsible for allowing the Mac to power up. Secondly SPI MUX needed the track from resistor to MUX replacing at was burnt out also. This was achieved by running a small wire in its place, then coating it in conformal paint to insulate it. And there we have it, Macbook Air back to the client at a 1/4 of Apple’s quote.
