Seize your right to repair by learning a few basic skills

Originally published at:


For people who are unsure what they can fix safely, and what they might want to leave to an expert, iFixit has a difficulty rating on each repair they’ve published. Start with a Beginner rated repair (difficulty 1), and you’ll see how easy it is. Build confidence and move up to a higher level. Pretty soon you’ll be tearing apart the washing machine and swapping out relays on the control board.


Yeah. I am capable of cracking open my beast of a laptop and fixing/replacing things in it. However it is a pain in the ass and paying someone to deal with the pain of it is worth it for me.
