Flex repair – Macbook Pro 13″ 2016 A1706 Screen failure due to the retina screen back light flex cable failure issue

Widley documented as ‘flexgate’ where Apple were sued in court over a known defect affecting ALL 2016 & 2017 13″ & 15″ Macbook pro’s. Apple did issue a free repair program, but only for the 2016 13″ model which is valid upto 4 years from date of purchase of the Mac. So up until now the only fix has been to replace the entire screen at great cost, only knowing it will suffer the same issue. The flex has been made too short and upon opening the Mac’s lid it puts pressure on the flex which will fail after a short amount of time.

We had been modifying the antenna strip on fitting new screens, cutting away a small bit of plastic relieving the pressure, thus eliminating the problem. Here we have actually repaired the flex, thus saving the huge cost of repacing the screen with a new one. We obtained some new back light flex cables, cut the existing failed flex at the fail point, and splice in a new one with an extra 5 mm of play thus eliminating the problem. In the 4th photo this can be observed

Left in the red circle is the camera flex – Exactly the same design & length as the back light flex circled in red on the right. You can see post work the slack it now has, so it can never break again from being pulled on when opening the lid. A 100% forever fix for this ridiculous issue.
