Vanguard22 is on a distinguished road

Hi guys,

I spilt some water on my 2011 Macbook Pro yesterday, everything seemed fine before I turned off and flipped upside down but I'd like to have a look at the logic board and stop any signs of corrosion before it gets a hold.

You can see evidence of the water on the underneath of the logic board when it trickled through and i'd like to take the logic board out and give it a clean where I know some of the water damage could be more problematic eventually.

My question is, is it possible to take the logic board out without Apple knowing? I'm thinking if I take it in to them they'll be able to tell it's had water damage even if the LSIs weren't triggered in its current state. But if I can clean up any signs of water damage from the logic board then I might have a functioning macbook in the future, and any unrelated problems could still be covered by applecare..

And yes I know this post will rile some and is against Apple's rules. But i'm stretched financially right now and can't afford the anticipated tier IV water repair bill! Need this computer to work for the next few years.

Thanks for any advice anyone can provide.
