Here is what you can do to get the job done at no cost. Remove the hard drive as pigoo3 said. It is very simple:
  • If yours has the removable battery, remove it. There is 3 screws spread across one side (other sides have more), remove those. The hard drive is in the front right of the computer and will slide right out.
  • If you don't have the removable battery, there is 10 screws on the bottom, that pops off (has a few snaps to hold it in the middle as well). Then inside there is a black bar with orange spots on it, remove the 2 screws on it, and then the hard drive will lift out and unplug.
Then move the hard drive to the other MacBook and now you have your screen. Just make sure you switch it back after you wipe the drive.
