Will LCD display from replacement laptop successfully replace LCD in Mac laptop with cracked screen?

I have a 2017 15" MacBook Pro 512GB 2.9 GHz i7 laptop with a cracked LCD screen that needs to be replaced.


Will purchasing this MacBook Pro 15” A1707 EMC 3162 Complete Assembly without logic board through eBay provide me with the correct replacement LCD screen for this laptop?


I have already obtained a quote from Apple where parts and labor to have this LCD screen replaced would be $775 and quotes that I have obtained from other third-party repair shops have been higher.


So I would like to know if this LCD display being sold on eBay is the right one for my Mac laptop.

This is the 3rd question about the same issue you have asked, right? It's quite difficult to advise you if part x from Ebay will work in your laptop y with the information provided. If this were my laptop I'd bite the bullet and take it to Apple.

MASQ,

Thank you for your response. I reposted this question as soon as I received the serial number of the caveat emptor laptop on eBay to ensure I can get a more accurate response.

The LCD screen from the replacement laptop works perfectly in replacing the cracked LCD screen in my original laptop.

Thank you MASQ!
