When you say:

Remove the following ten screws:

Two 8 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

Eight 2.5 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

Do the 8mm & 2.5mm dimensions refer to the LENGTH of those screws, or the size of the pentalobe? That is, are there other sizes of pentalobe drivers like there are for hex, phillips and torx? When only one dimension is provided, it is usually the socket/driver size, not the screw length, maybe since the length cannot be seen when the screw is installed.

Can I suggest that you clarify your instructions so folks are confident they are only in need of _one_ pentalobe driver?

Nerdily yours,

The 8mm and 2.5mm are the length of the screws. One pentalobe P5 screwdriver suffices for all the screws (P5 is implicitly the size of the pentalobe screw heads).

I sourced all the parts from ifixit, plus a magnetic project mat which I found to be very useful for organising the teardown and reassembly.

Setze das flache Ende eines Spudgers unter die kurzen Seiten des Akkuanschlusses und hebele ihn aus seinem Sockel auf dem Logic Board. Biege das Akkukabel etwas weg vom Logic Board, damit der Verbinder nicht versehentlich wieder Kontakt zu seinem Sockel bekommt.

I performed this on my MacBook Air (11-inch, Mid 2011), model A1370. Rather than using the spudger to un-attach the batter connector, I gripped either side with my fingers as the second photographs indicated, and gently pry/wiggled it up and out by initially pinching into the side gap with my finger nails. The reason I did it this way is that the spudger works by leverage and I was afraid to rest it against the components surrounding the connector. The photos and instructions are excellent and illustrate the maneuver perfectly.

Hello there... In my case by battery exploded.... Can I still try to change it using these instructions?

Fabio Matos - Antwort

The instruction to lift the edges of battery connector before disconnecting is certainly not clear. In my case, the cconnector pins came off the board with the battery, requiring further costly repairs. I would suggest that this instruction be more specific and include a caution.

Deirdre Rogan - Antwort

It worked fine for me, but as others mentioned, you need to be careful to remove the battery connector from the motherboard connector and not accidentally remove the motherboard connector from the motherboard itself.

Additionally, on reassembly, I found that quit a bit of pressure was needed to get the new battery's connector to snap in place. More than I was comfortable applying, but it was necessary and it worked without a problem.

In my case the screw points connecting the old battery the case had fractured or broken. The broken bits needed to be cleaned out of the case before installing the replacement battery. Didn't want any loose fragments rattling about inside.

What if new battery comes with what looks like plastic around the 6 cells?

I followed the directions in the reverse order, but now I have the old battery in my laptop again. Help?

Jenny Doehammer - Antwort

Great guide. Identified my parts, ordered them per the suggestions, and had the battery swapped out in 10 minutes. I like to use a magnetic sheet to hold and organize my screws for repairs like this - it keeps the proper size screws in the proper holes. If you don't have access to magnetic sheeting like I do from my graphics shop, an oval car magnet or a fridge magnet will work as well. The screwdriver recommended are of better quality than I expected. Thanks Ifixit.

awesome instructions…it worked! My MacBook Air 2012 now has a better battery and it was easy. Thank you

Jeffrey Louden - Antwort

Please note that the screws holding the lower case on go in at a slight angle. If you don’t hold the screwdriver at this angle the tiny torx bit won’t mate properly with the head of the screw and you could damage the screw or the bit. If you don’t screw them back in at the correct angle you could have the same problem, or strip the threads on the case and/or have the screws sticking out a bit and they could snag on or scratch something. However, the instructions are correct.

I followed this guide and the batter connector has come loose twice now. The first time I opened the case back up and rearranged the cable before plugging it back in. This fix lasted less than 24 hours.

Does anyone have any advice for me before I go in and try again?
