Question: Macbook pro Battery replacement with keyboard??
Daughter's battery had failed on MacBook pro after c4 years and would not charge after only 500 charge cycles so could only be used connected to power source. So she took it to our local Stormfront Apple store for a battery replacement / repair. They took it away then called my daughter with a quote of £440 to replace the battery. I queried that and they said that the battery was connected to the keyboard and that to replace the battery they would also need to replace the keyboard so that would be new as well. That sounded nonsense to me as not seen anything like that mentioned anywhere as part of replacing a battery. So have asked for it back and contemplating taking it to the nearest main Apple store.
They were also saying that the screen was starting to delaminate and that they could replace that as well for an additional c£440 so were asking for £880.
However, in case i am doing them a disservice - has anyone heard of this about the battery before? Appreciate any guidance.
