Do you think they'll replace mine even though ive installed my own SSD?
I've been part of the original thread for the last two years, desparately hoping for apple to acknowledge this issue. But in the mean time i just installed a SSD to reduce the amount of time that the seagte was being read . But now after years they have acknowlege it and ive got a modified mac.
I may have a quite word with the aurthorised service centre near me and hopefully they wont void my apple care.
I'd just take my SSD out, but i use my comp every day for work and even spending one day without having the seagate replaced will affect my income.
Bloody apple.... took a while to get here!

It depends on several factors - will the store do it in-store or send it out to an AASP they contract with? Or do you have on-site service scheduled? Do they have a huge backlog? My only experience has been that an auhorized tech will come to my house and do it there - it took him about an hour. We then cloned back my system and had to spend more time troubleshooting because the Mac and my router/modem refused to talk to each other but we finally got it to work. Total time about 2 hours - but again, that was at my house with the tech's full attention on my machine.
Make sure you have a backup (bootable preferred) and erase the disk so strangers won't have access to your files and information.
