    Question Apple spares wanted over the counter in the UK or Europe
    Does anyone know of any outlets in the UK or Europe whereby I can order a spare part for my macbook if needed ?

    Without being told I need to take my machine into an apple service provide for them to fix !

    Surely there's somewhere that apple don't control the supply of their parts & who fixes them.

    Gladly appreciate any posotive responses.

    Thanks

    No, there isn't such a place. Apple is very strict on that sort of thing.

    The only way you will find "spare" parts is on eBay or something like iFixit: Apple Mac, MacBook, iPod, and iPhone Repair Parts

    And the stuff you'll find there is usually a generation or three behind.

    i wonder why people would even buy from ifixit if the cost of the product is nearly the same as just having apple repair it, and you get the labor done for you.

    Ebay, Ebay, Ebay. Get all of my parts from there.

    KRCS are great, you can buy the parts and do it yourself or they will do it for a base charge of around £90. and most the time if you take the faulty product they will replace it free of charge =3
