Have your MacBook Pro feet seen better days? Use this guide to give your early 2015 MacBook Pro a fresh set of feet.

    • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Two 2.3 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Eight 3.0 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your device.

    If don’t have one of those neat project mats, then you can use small pieces of flattened blu-tack to hold the screws. If you arrange them in the shape of your mac book cover, and put the screws down methodically, you can get a one-to-one mapping of the screws to the correct screw holes.

  3. Peel away any stickers from the backside of the rear case covering the feet you have chosen to replace. Any stickers you remove will most likely be unsalvageable for re-use. That's okay! Your MacBook does not need them to function.

    If you take an exact knife or similar and trace out a section around the feet, you can leave the rest of the sticker in tact. I found it easier to remove a small section of the sticker as it was fairly well adhered.

    • If the old foot is difficult to remove, use a hair dryer or a heat gun to apply some heat to the area and loosen the adhesive.

    There are large black stickers in the way of removing this little piece on my A1502 Early 2015 MBP. How do we proceed from here?

    Hey Jason! You can remove those stickers entirely, or just peel them back enough to remove the foot and then cut away the peeled part of the sticker.

On the inside of the cover of my A1502 Early 2015 MBP, two of the four feet are covered by large black stickers. So, how do we remove the little piece left behind when we remove any foot that is damaged? Do we just cut through the large black sticker or remove it?

Jason Protzman - Antwort

This review was helpful, but it didn’t mention the black stickers on the inside of the lower case. I ended up poking a small hole through the black stickers to get the remaining pieces of previous feet out.
