Here at San Diego Mac Repair, we recognize the severity of MacBook liquid damage. Liquid spills can be devastating, as they corrode sensitive electronic components. However, it’s important to know that all hope is not lost. While Apple may quote prices ranging from $700 to $1,500 for repairing MacBook water damage, their approach often involves unnecessary full board replacements, labeled as tier 3 or tier 4 repairs. Instead of taking the time to fix the reusable parts you already have, Apple opts for the easier route of replacing everything, ultimately leaving your wallet feeling lighter. At San Diego Mac Repair, we take a different approach – one that focuses on efficiency, affordability, and preserving the integrity of your MacBook.

Understanding MacBook Logic Board Damage

The moment liquid enters your MacBook, it’s crucial to stop usage immediately. Powering it on will further complicate the issue, as electricity flowing through wet components can lead to further damage by oxidizing and rusting out critical components. While we can repair extensive damage like this, it’s optimal to minimize damage to increase the likelihood of a timely and successful repair.
