What you need

  1. MacBook Power Cord 5-Pin MagSafe Connector and Cable Replacement, 5 pins Magsafe connector and cable: 1 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Tools required:

    • A decent soldering iron

    • Wire cutters

    • Desoldering pump

    • A big heavy-duty spudger

    • A pair of snap-ring pliers for use with external snap-rings. Really any long-nose pliers would do, this is just perfect for the job if you happen to have a pair :-)

    • Super glue

    • 1 or 2 small clamps

    • Open the cord winding flaps.

    • Heat the power brick's plastic casing with a hair dryer, and/or run a razor blade along the seam between the two halves of the casing, in order to weaken the adhesive. This will make it easier to pry the case open.

    • Insert your pliers and pry slowly. (Make sure they stay seated in the inside corners, or you may injure yourself or gouge the case.)

    • The cord winding flap will fall out.

    • Do the same on the other side.

    • Work slowly!

    • If your charger is never opened before, it would be difficult to pry it open. Try bench-vise tools to add power your needle nose plier

    • Handle of your needle-nose plier is laid upon the closed bench vise, insert into the casing, then roll the vise slowly.

    • The casing would be cracked and you can continue to next step

    • Finish it by hand; you'll have to apply some force.

    • At some point, the case will crack open. (The edges are glued all the way around, and the interior metal sheeting may be glued to the case with a foam adhesive as well.)

    • The corner pieces inside the winding flaps, with their flat metal springs, may come loose as well; note their arrangement with springs pointing toward the cord, for reinstallation later.

    • Carefully remove the inside from the shell.

    • Be careful not to touch any of the capacitor leads, or you may receive an electric shock.

    • If the inside sticks to one half of the shell, it's probably due to (a) glue around the edge of the A/C connector, and/or (b) foam glue between the inside and the flat of the shell.

    • Use a heavy duty spudger or other pry tool to pry the edge of the A/C connector from the shell, and carefully pry between the shell and the inside to break the foam glue.

    • Use only ESD-safe pry tools. Do not use metal pry tools or screwdrivers.

    • You may find the metallic sheeting breaks a little; that's okay, but try to minimize the damage!

    • I like to insert a big spudger to make more room to work.

    • Make sure you note the position of the positive and negative terminals.

    • Start by removing a bit of solder with the pump.

    • Separate the cables. It may require some force, so be careful not to break the board.

    • The replacement cable should be tinned with solder before solder on the board; just put the leads in place and apply heat to install it.

    • Bending the wire tips 90 degrees helps with installation.

    • Carefully put the power assembly back in the first half of the casing.

    • It will be a tight fit!

    • Place the cable grommet in the proper position in the casing.

    • Put the cord winding flappers back in position.

  12. MacBook Power Cord 5-Pin MagSafe Connector and Cable Replacement: 12 단계, 이미지 1/1
    • Put some super glue on the cover.

    • Avoid the flap areas and the grommet area.

    • You might want to wear gloves so as not to get excess super glue on your fingers.

    • Hold the flaps in place and install the other half of the casing.

    • It will be tight—be patient!

    • Make sure the flaps stay in place.

    • Clamp the casing together and give it a few hours for the glue to set.

This guide was very helpful in figuring out what needed to be done and how to do it. I don't have access to a lead pump so I ended up removing the old wires and then soldering the new ones on top of the remaining solder. So far it's working just fine!

I wasn't able to open my charger, even when using heat, the pliars as shown here and even a knife. As the damage to my cable was a few inches from the charger I just cut the cord and soldered a new one to the end. Cable looks a bit ratty but you could use white tubing to place over the top.

This guide is great and would definitely use it if possible =)

Try using bench vise with needle-nose plier

You certainly need to knife thoroughly along the seam for it to open; after which you need to pry slowly with a pair of pliers by applying a considerable amount of force. Prudence is necessary when applying force because brute force will likely damage the casing; that means if you think adding more force will break the casing, it probably will. Knife it some more and then try again. Patience is *key*.

I managed to open the casing without breaking it *but I did break my pliers in the process. lol
