I ship those to a guy in new york now, he can't upgrade the storage but can replace a dead chip.

Theyre a standard Nvme drive and you can buy an adapter for a few euro to use a standard m.2 SATA if you want.. it just wont be as fast.

You can probably get a replacement drive and all the tools you need for <150 euro

Also no harm to dig around on apple and see if you are eligible for anything like this
https://support.apple.com/en-ie/13-inch-macbook-pro-solid-state-drive-service
My old 17 inch MacBook developed a graphics card fault and the whole mother board was replaced for free by apple out of warranty.

Whatever you do do not contact macrepair.ie

They have a great website but in reality its all a fake.
its just a guy who will destroy your machine,
he took my machine, destroyed it and gave me back a machine with used broken non apple parts,
he blamed the courier for my machine not working when it got back to me.
complete thief and has been doing this since 2010 if you look for him in other threads
he uses your parts to refurisb other macs that he sells for cash.
