Guide


Step 1

Remove the 10 screws as shown in the image. 

- 2 x 2.3mm Pentalobe screws (red)

- 8 x 3.0mm Pentalobe screws (yellow)



Step 2

Wedge your fingers between the upper case and lower case. 

Gently pull the lower case away from the upper case to remove it. 

The lower case is connected to the upper case with two plastic clips near its center, if there is significant resistance when opening the case, slide the spudger around the edges to release the plastic clips.

Step 3

If there is a plastic covered adhered to the battery contact board, remove the plastic cover first. 

Use the flat end of the spudger to lift the battery connector straight up out of its socket on the logic board. 

Once it has been disconnected, bend the battery connector up out of the way to prevent accidental contact during the course of the repair.

Step 4

Remove the 2 screws securing the logic board end of the I/O cable bracket as shown in the image. 

- 2 x 2.1mm T5 Torx screws (red)

Step 5

Use a pair of tweezers to remove the I/O board cable bracket.

Step 6

Use the flat end of the spudger to pop the I/O board connector straight up off its socket on the logic board.

Bend the I/O board cable straight up and out of the way. Fold only at the bend in the I/O board end of the cable.

Step 7

Carefully tuck the sharp end of the spudger under the right speaker cable near the connector and lift it up out of its socket on the logic board.

Step 8

Carefully peel the right speaker cable off the upper case.

Step 9

Remove the 3 screws securing the right speaker to the upper case

- 1 x 5.7mm T5 Torx screws (red)

- 1 x 6.5mm T5 Torx screws (orange)

- 1 x 3.8mm T5 Torx screws (yellow)



Step 10

Gently lift the right speaker from the cable end and pull it free from the case.

Step 11

Insert the sharp end of the spudger under the left speaker cable and lift it up out of its socket on the logic board.

Step 12

Remove the 3 screws securing the left speaker to the upper case

- 1 x 5.7mm T5 Torx screws (red)

- 1 x 6.5mm T5 Torx screws (orange)

- 1 x 3.8mm T5 Torx screws (yellow)



Step 13

Lift the corner of the left speaker up and slide it out around the battery to remove it from the upper case.

Step 14

Remove the single screw securing the battery to the upper case

1 x 3.7mm T5 Torx screws (red)

Take note, your specific unit might have 5 screws instead securing the battery’s circuit board to the frame.

Step 15

Place a sheet of aluminium foil covering the entire display, between the display and the keyboard. The adhesive remover might damage the anti-reflective coating of the display.

Step 16

If you are using the adhesive remover, follow these instructions. If you are using a hair dryer, jump to step 17. 

The adhesive remover contains acetone, a mild skin and eye irritant. Ensure that you have done the following:

- Work in a well-ventilated area. 

- Wear protective gloves if you are concerned about skin irritation. 

Apply a few drops of adhesive remover evenly under the edge of the rightmost battery cell. 

Wait 2-3 minutes for the liquid adhesive remover to penetrate the adhesive under the battery before proceeding. 

Use more adhesive remover if needed but apply only a few drops at a time to prevent it from seeping into other components.

Step 17

These instructions are for removal using a hair dryer.

Heat the rightmost battery cell gently with a hair dryer until it is uncomfortable to touch to warn and soften the section of adhesive securing the battery. 

Ensure that you apply the heat gently as high heat may cause the battery to catch fire.

Step 18

Once the adhesive has sufficiently weakened, slide a plastic card between the rightmost battery cell, cutting the adhesive between the battery and the case. 

If there is significant resistance, you may either apply a few more drops of adhesive remover or gently heat the section again. 

Throughout this procedure, take extra care not to damage any of the battery cells. A damaged lithium-ion battery may leak dangerous chemicals and/or catch fire. Use only plastic pry tools.

Step 19

Use the plastic card to pry the rightmost battery cell up from the rear case.

Step 20

Repeat the procedure with the adjacent battery cell: 

- Weaken the adhesive either by using the adhesive remover or heating the section gently. 

- Push a plastic card about an inch between the battery cell and the case, and slowly pry the cell up to separate the adhesive.



Step 21

Leave a plastic card underneath the two rightmost battery cells to prevent it from re-adhering.

Step 22

Repeat step 17 to 21 on the leftmost 2 battery cells.

Step 23

To separate the adhesive securing the middle 2 cells, apply a few more drops of adhesive remover to each cell. 


It may help to elevate one side of your device so that the adhesive remover flows in the correct direction underneath the battery cell. 

Insert the card about an inch between both of the battery cells and the case, one at a time, separating the adhesive between the cell and the case.

At this point, either use a third card or remove the card from the rightmost battery cell as the adhesive should be dried already.

Step 24

Remove the battery. 

At this point, all the battery cells should be free. If there are some parts that still face resistance, slide the plastic card underneath to separate any remaining adhesive.

Step 25

Before installing the new battery, remove any remaining adhesive left on the case using an adhesive remover or pulling out each strip of adhesive. 

Mop up any remaining adhesive remover and let your MacBook Pro dry for a few minutes.

Step 26

Remove the protective cover to expose the adhesive. Ensure that the adhesive is free from any foreign substances.

Step 27

Screw in the screw securing the battery to the upper case

- 1 x 3.7mm T5 Torx screws

Step 28

Slide the left speaker back into the case.

Step 29

Screw back the 3 screws securing the right speaker to the upper case

- 1 x 5.7mm T5 Torx screws (red)

- 1 x 6.5mm T5 Torx screws (orange)

- 1 x 3.8mm T5 Torx screws (yellow)

Step 30

Reconnect the left speaker cable back into its socket on the logic board.

Step 31

Gently slide the right speaker back in from the cable end and press it down securely into the case.

Step 32

Screw in the 3 screws securing the right speaker to the upper case

- 1 x 5.7mm T5 Torx screws (red)

- 1 x 6.5mm T5 Torx screws (orange)

- 1 x 3.8mm T5 Torx screws (yellow)

Step 33

Place the right speaker cable back along the same path and press down firmly.

Step 34

Carefully reinsert the right speaker cable back into its socket.

Step 35

Reinsert the I/O board connector back into its socket on the logic board.

Step 36

Place the I/O board cable bracket back into place.

Step 37

Screw back the 2 screws securing the logic board end of the I/O cable bracket as shown in the image. 

- 2 x 2.1mm Torx screws (red)



Step 38

Reconnect the battery connector with a spudger.

Step 39

Reinsert the lower case and press it down firmly until the two plastic clips near its centre clicks into place.

Step 40

Screw back the 10 screws as shown in the image. 

- 2 x 2.3mm Pentalobe screws (red)

- 8 x 3.0mm Pentalobe screws (yellow)

Remove the aluminium foil protecting the screen.
