The cable came out of the MagSafe plug on my MacBook power supply, so I ordered a replacement cable. This is how to crack the power supply open and fit it, no need for a Dremel or a knife.

Thanks go to eBay seller junk-is-us7399 (http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/junk-is-us7399) for supplying a working replacement power cable.

To those who think Apple MagSafe connectors are useless: it's better than trying to repair a broken DC input jack on a laptop, which in many cases involve a total stripdown of the laptop just to get to the solder pads. Been there, done that.

Credit where credit's due: this video uses a case-opening method found at http://www.instructables.com/id/How-t...
