How to repair your MagSafe DC cable of Macbook Adapter?

How can you replace the MagSafe cord or cable on an Apple AC adapter?

Unfortunately, Apple does not provide any repairing services for adapters if it is damaged even when it is under 6 months warranty. In fact they just replace it with a new adapter, because adapters are very complex in design which makes it quite hard to repair. Now that is all good if your adapter is damaged within 6 months since you gets a replacement from Apple. But what if your MagSafe adapter is damaged after 6 months, you might be thinking that you have got no choice but to spend $80 on a new one. Well in that case I am here to help, only if it is a cable problem.


Tools needed for repairing:

1) Replacement MagSafe cord/cable: Primarily you will need a new MagSafe cord to replace the old damaged one. If your MagSafe pin is a L-Type then choose only L-Type, because the T-Type won’t be compatible with it, and vice verse for the T-Type as well.
