Wi-Fi connectivity not what it used to be? A new AirPort Extreme 802.11g card might alleviate your woes.

Einführungsvideo

  1. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement, Battery: Schritt 1, Bild 1 von 1
    • Use a coin or spudger to rotate the battery-locking screw 90 degrees clockwise.

  2. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 2, Bild 1 von 1
    • Lift the battery out of the computer.

  3. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement, Memory Cover: Schritt 3, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the three evenly-spaced Phillips screws from along the rear wall of the battery compartment.

    • The screws are captive to the metal memory cover.

    • When replacing the battery casing, use a spudger to re-insert the foam cushioning behind the rear wall for propper battery spacing.

  4. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 4, Bild 1 von 1
    • Lift up on L-shaped memory cover, slide it to the right, and lift it out of the computer.

  5. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement, Upper Case: Schritt 5, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the following 3 screws:

    • One 11 mm Phillips #00 in the middle of the case.

    • Two 14.5 mm Phillips #00.

    • If the screws stick in the case, you can use a magnetized screwdriver to draw them out.

    • The shorter of the three screws goes in the middle.

  6. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 6, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the following 3 screws from the rear wall of the battery compartment:

    • Two 3 mm Phillips #00. (A1181 has three 3 mm screws and one 4 mm.)

    • One 4 mm Phillips #00 on the right side.

    • When reinstalling these screws, press gently on the lower case to line up the screw holes.

    • These screws easily strip, so be careful while taking these particular screws out.

  7. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 7, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the two 6 mm Phillips #00 screws from either side of the right wall of the battery compartment (not the ones closest to the battery connector).

  8. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 8, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the four 3 mm indicated Phillips #00 screws from the front wall of the battery compartment. When working from the left, remove the 2nd, 4th, 7th and 9th screw.

  9. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 9, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the following 4 screws from the back of the computer:

    • Two 7 mm shouldered Phillips on the far sides.

    • Two 10.5 mm Phillips toward the center.

    • Do not over-tighten these; you can cause the case to distort.

  10. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 10, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the two 5.2 mm shouldered Phillips #00 screws from the optical side of the computer.

    • It is not necessary to remove the similar screws on the other side of the computer.

  11. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 11, Bild 1 von 1
    • Starting near the display and working around to the front of the computer, pry up on the upper case. It is held with clips on the right above the optical drive. These will release with some firm lifting pressure.

    • Be careful when prying up the upper case. It's very easy to slice open a fingertip and thus provide the blood sacrifice the Mac gods sometimes require of those who insist on doing their own repairs.

    • There's a trackpad and keyboard ribbon connecting the upper case to the logic board, so don't pull the upper case off entirely just yet.

    • If you have trouble getting the clips to release, be careful that you are not prying the plastic top of the upper case away from its metal frame.

  12. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 12, Bild 1 von 1
    • While holding up the upper case (from the bottom or the top), use a spudger to pry up the orange trackpad and keyboard cable from its connector.

    • Take care to pry between the black socket and the white connector. You might have to pry on both sides for it to release properly.

    • Do not pry from the bottom or the top, but from the sides.

    • If you happen to break your upper case cable when removing the upper case, we stock the cable individually and we have a guide that makes replacing it easy.

  13. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement, AirPort Card: Schritt 13, Bild 1 von 1
    • Disconnect the two antenna cables from the Airport card on the left side of the computer.

  14. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 14, Bild 1 von 1
    • Remove the following 2 screws from the Airport card:

    • One 3 mm Phillips from the left side.

    • One 8 mm Phillips from the right side.

  15. MacBook Core Duo AirPort Card Replacement: Schritt 15, Bild 1 von 1
    • Grasp the Airport card at its top and slide it toward the screen and out of the computer.

You'll have to remove a lot of different sized screws. Be careful to take care of properly placing them while doing the steps - you'll have to put them back the way you took them out. I personally placed them the way the pictures show them.

I did not install an AirPort card However I used the guide to open my MacBook to give it a good cleaning inside. Perfect!

Thank you thank you thank you. A lifelong PC user, with their wife's MacBook ( so lots of pressure not to break it) was able to follow this walk through and make their wife so happy with the improved performance. Thanks for giving me the confidence to tackle other upgrades that can be done on this MacBook!
