Einleitung

In dieser Anleitung wird gezeigt, wie du den eingeklebten Akku deines MacBook Pro entfernen kannst. Das klappt am besten mit einem iFixit Akku Kit. Der flüssige Klebstoffentferner in deinem Kit wird den Kleber, mit dem der Akku befestigt ist, auflösen, so dass du ihn ganz leicht herausnehmen kannst. Alternativ kannst du auch einen iOpener nutzen, um den Kleber etwas zu erwärmen und dadurch weicher zu machen, bevor du den Akku heraushebelst.

Der iFixit Klebstoffentferner ist leicht entzündlich. Du solltest diese Reparatur in einem gut belüfteten Bereich durchführen und währenddessen nicht rauchen oder in die Nähe einer offenen Flamme kommen.

Um das Sicherheitsrisiko zu verkleinern, solltest du den Akku deines MacBook Pro vollständig entladen, bevor du mit der Reparatur beginnst. Eine geladene Lithium-Ionen-Batterie kann ein gefährliches und unkontrollierbares Feuer verursachen, wenn sie versehentlich beschädigt wird. Wenn dein Akku aufgebläht ist, dann musst du geeignete Vorsichtsmaßnahmen treffen.

Hinweis: Das Lösungsmittel, das zum Auflösen des Klebstoffs verwendet wird, kann bestimmte Kunststoffe beschädigen, wie zum Beispiel die Lautsprechergehäuse aus Plastik des MacBook Pro. Sei deshalb besonders vorsichtig beim Auftragen des Lösungsmittels.

Wenn du noch den veralteten iFixit Klebstoffentferner verwendest, bei dem die Flasche und die Spritze getrennt sind (wird nicht mehr verkauft), dann

    • Entferne die folgenden zehn Schrauben, die den Boden des Gehäuses befestigen:

    • Zwei 2,3 mm Pentalobe P5 Schrauben

    • Acht 3 mm Pentalobe P5 Schrauben

    • Denke während dieser Reparatur daran, sich die Positionen der Schrauben zu merken und gehe sicher, dass jede Schraube später wieder an der richtigen Stelle ist, damit dein Gerät nicht kaputt geht.

    For all the screws you use the P5 pentalobe screwdriver?

    Carlos - Antwort

    Pentalobe is only for the screws on the bottom cover. The Torx screw driver is for the remainder.

    Fredrik -

    I never, ever, ever considered using anything but the correct tool on the Pentalobe screws. Too easy to strip and void your warranty (if still in effect), as well as make it almost impossible to get inside later for another upgrade or repair. The Wiha P5 Pentalobe screwdriver fits like a glove and costs only about $11 (a fraction of your drive's price)at Amazon.com. Get it!

    marketing - Antwort

    I followed this exactly and was able to replace my broken trackpad. I did not have to replace the ribbon OR the battery. However I would suggest getting the ribbon since it’s fairly cheap, as for the batteries I was able to do it with a card only. I didn’t use any heat or the liquid but it takes some time. You really have to work the card in there to release the glue. Also you must be very careful not to bend the batteries or damage them, if you do you must replace with new. This took me about 1.5hrs and my computer works like new. Apple cost for this job was around $450, I did it for $120. Big ups to ifixit for this awesome tutorial, tool set and parts!

    On a side note, only use quality tools, the cheap ones will break or strip the screws.

    Dustin Steward - Antwort

    Note that the eight 3mm screws have a shoulder under the head, while the two 2.3mm screws are “full thread”, i.e., there is no shoulder under their heads. It’s important to put the two screws with no shoulder at the hinge of the cover.

    All ten screws require a P5 Pentalobe screwdriver, preferably with a magnetized tip to help hold and position the screw.

    All of the screws have blue “Loctite” thread locker compound on their threads. This is to help prevent the screws from working loose and falling out. Don’t attempt to clean the Loctite from the screws — leave it in place, and it will continue to help prevent the re-inserted screws from working loose.

    When replacing the bottom cover, it is a good technique to insert and BEGIN tightening all ten screws BEFORE fully tightening any one screw. After all the screws have been started, then go around and finish tightening all of them. By doing this, you make it easier to feel that each screw has been started properly, and is not “cross-threaded”.

    doubleclutch - Antwort

    This is what I found on my MBP mid-2014 13” Retina. All 10 used the same screwdriver. I didn’t see the blue “loctite” but I also got my computer refurbished.

    Evan Shulman -

    A good technique for starting to thread the screws when replacing them is to position and align the screw, and with the driver, gently turn the screw in the REMOVAL direction until you feel and hear a slight click. This click happens when the leading thread of the screw drops off of the leading edge of the thread in the hole — this is the point at which the threads are properly positioned for engagement. You can now turn the driver and screw in the TIGHTENING direction. This technique will help prevent accidental “cross-threading” of the screw, which will damage the threads permanently.

    Note that this is a useful technique when installing ANY threaded fastener.

    doubleclutch - Antwort

    Hi peeps,

    I have a wifi problem on this MBP 13” early 2015 and was pleasently surprised to find your guide to changing the airport card.

    However upon closer inspection it seems that on my MBP (purchased new or so I thought) the 3 antennae seem so have been soldered together at the point where they are clamped to the chassis. I have photos but cannot post here. Can anyone conform that where the 3 antennae wires are held to the chssis by the 2 scew metal support (just before disappearing into the screen hinge), the support is not meant to short the 3 wires together. This makes no sense for 3 seperate antennae wires.

    Any advice /close up photos is welcome here.

    Tip: Use post-it notes to keep track of screws

    1. Pack of post it notes

    2. Stick screws to the sticky part of the post it note

    3. Write on the post it note which step and what kind of screw it is

    Hi, in order to drain the battery I am running:

    yes > /dev/null

    in 4 terminals, so the CPU maxes out at almost 99%.

    I hope this speeds up the battery draining process.

    And the backlight is at maximum brightness :-)

    You can see the cpu load in Activity Monitor.

    Its draining at 20% per 15 minutes.

    Any concerns about draining the battery in this way?

    Andre van der Ham - Antwort

    Something I’ve been curious about, is it possible to upgrade a late 2013 Retina model MacBook Pro, with the improved 16gb ram and i7 processor logic board from the 2015 retina model? I’d be interested to try but not ready to shell out the $500+ to be the first lol

    Chat Dawgie - Antwort

    Without rehashing what others have said, I would highly recommend reading through the steps *and* the comments for each before tackling your replacement for tips. Highlights for me were: only disconnecting what actually needed to be disconnected, rotating the spudger to release the track pad cable, a hair dryer worked perfectly fine, and the pencil outline of the battery before you remove. You got this!

    It's interesting that this tutorial is rated Moderate even though you need to remove the battery. The battery removal tutorial which is basically the same but with fewer steps is rated Difficult.

    Marv Ruona - Antwort

    when i pulled the screws out i arranged them in the same way they were in. the top 2 middle screws appeared to be shorter than the rest. in order to keep them in place i got a square of packing tape sticky side up, taped both sides down with 2 other pieces of tape. and then put the screws head down in the order i pulled them.

    This takes a bit more effort than you might expect. Put your fingers where shown and lift about 3inches. With enough upwards pressure the plastic holders will “pop free” and the bottom will come off easily.

    This wording I found quite confusing. They just mean when putting the lid back on that you just removed in the previous step, push here.

    Mmm ttt - Antwort

    I took my pointer and thumb (which are luckily long enough) to feel where the studs are on the back panel, and then as I put the back panel back on, I pushed in the spot I had marked with my fingers to ensure I was applying pressure only on this part.

    Evan Shulman - Antwort

    If you’re doing an iFixIt battery replacement, the replacement battery has two rubber nubs which are right where the clips are that receive these studs. Folks have been saying it’s hard to get the studs to clip back in after replacement, and I had the same issue. I trimmed the top of these rubber nubs, which are a bit bigger than those on the original battery, with some side cutters. That made the fit much better.

    A plastic foam cover also covers plug and socket and the whole battery. It is easy to remove it from the right side to the trackpad wire that the battery plug is free like shown in the picture. I kept it to use it again later.

    Daniel Brehm - Antwort

    I have done tons of these battery replacements.

    You don’t need to do anything on the list after you disconnect the battery, apart from carefully moving the speakers out of the way, and then prise up the battery modules. I just very carefully, and with little even motions, use a large slot screwdriver. Being careful to keep it flat, to not puncture the battery.

    Easy peasy. I have never had an issue after dozens of the tasks…

    davelarose - Antwort

    Dear Sir,

    as you seem to be very much experienced with battery replacements you might perhaps give me a hint why after having removed the battery pack successfilly, the keyboard doesn't work anymore after booting the system. The Touchpad works, the keyboard backlight works but typing does not function at all.

    I only disconnected the battery connector and touched nothing else. I am quite desperate …

    Gerd Uyan -

    I agree with Dave la Rose, provided you use heat rather than solvent to remove the old battery (or possibly floss, haven’t done that). Please see my comment further down this thread on how to use an iOpener for correctly heating the glue joint

    I have a friends MacBook Pro that has some water damage that caused the MacBook not to be able to use battery power, but still work when plugged into A/C. Upon further inspection I can see visible corrosion on a few of the 9 cables going from the battery connector to that small circuit board. Is it possible to just replace that circuit board?

    jramsey21 - Antwort

    Sometimes it can be enough to just clean the contacts without having to replace the entire board. Dosent work for complicated IC's like plcc type, where corrosion is underneath the chip. Here you will have to reheat and reapply the IC.

    andrehedegaard -

    When placing the battery connector back into the socket on the logic board, check that every part of connector is pressed down. You should hear a soft click when it's back in place.

    I thought I made sure it was connected but when running the computer it only detected the battery but couldn’t power it. I had to run with power adapter. Also it didn’t charge. I guess some pins were connected but not all. To verify that all were connected I removed the plastic cover, placed it carefully completely flat, and then reattached the plastic cover. After that it worked!

    Jonas Ehrs -

    Removing the battery connector took a bit of finagling. It wasn’t as easy as one would think. Be very careful when doing this as they warn to not damage it. Otherwise great instructions!!!!

    Peppon - Antwort

    Lift from the long, flat side, not the shorter side. In this picture, you should lift from the NORTH part of the connector, not the WEST side like they are doing. This is because you can spread the pressure from lifting the connector across more area, as compared to the side. I accidentally broke off part of my battery connector lifting it up the way shown, but was able to do it the way I described without problem. Make sure to lift from the wide part so you don’t have my same trouble!

    Jaden Salama - Antwort

    The connector is no more than 1mm thick… the socket is 3-to-4mm deep so make sure you’re trying to remove the connector itself, and not pulling at the socket.

    Richie Egg - Antwort

    Thank you Richie I was trying to lift the socket.

    be careful the little square block is actually made of 2 parts and you only have to lift the upper part as Richie said

    ilyes - Antwort

    You can do it from the side like the picture, but i would recommend twisting almost like a screw driver once you have leverage under the overhanging part of the left side like in the picture. Twist the tool so that it starts to put pressure on the top, until you’ll hear it click out. You can be somewhat forceful but it shouldn’t require a lot of strength. Guiding the tool with one hand and twisting with the other is a good way to attempt this.

    Colin Nowers - Antwort

    After I put the battery back I found out at this step that the new battery connector was off by 2 mm (because I installed my battery slightly off). Since the connector is rigid, I removed it’s plastic cover (just like we all did in Step 4) to free the cable, which allowed me to bent it enough to properly plug the connector.

    If you miss or let this step for later like I did, the power left in the battery even though the computer is completely shut down, will screw up the I/O board cable like I did. I noticed this after I put all the pieces back, turn the computer on and surprise, no wifi hardware is detected. -.-

    At this point it's a good idea to take sheet of printer paper, like A4, and press each screw into the paper roughly in the position it was removed from. When it comes time to reassemble it, you wont get the different lengths mixed up.

    Martin Gray - Antwort

    This step was not necessary for me to remove the battery. Perhaps it's a safety precaution? Regardless, skipped the I/O Cable removal (Steps 7, 8, 9, 10) and didn't have any problems replacing the battery.

    barak - Antwort

    After this step I continued from step 13, the steps in between were not really necessary in my opinion ( I succeeded the replacement without them). Just be careful not to touch these connectors during replacement.

    driesverfaillie - Antwort

    While it may not be necessary to remove the left and right speakers, doing so will make it much easier to get at (and under) the end batteries and their adhesive pads. Also, by removing the speakers, you also get them out of harm’s way while you wrestle with loosening the batteries’ adhesives.

    I recommend removing the speakers and their connectors as described in the iFixit instructions.

    I am not sure why I was even bothering with touching the speakers at all. Since April I have done at least another dozen 13” battery replacements. You simply do not need to touch the speakers for any reason, and, in fact, touching introduces unnecessary risk.

    This whole procedure of replacing the battery may easily be done in about 20 minutes.

    davelarose - Antwort

    davelarose keeps saying not to remove the speakers, but he is using hot air method. If you are trying to remove the battery using adhesive remover you won’t be able to get the right angle with the spudger if you leave the speakers in, without risking damaging them. I didn’t remove any of the speaker connectors however and just undid the speaker screws and moved the speakers up out of the way temporarily, this worked well.

    I removed I/O Board cable completely on both ends using a flat end plastic spudger tool. I did not feel comfortable “bending” it as shown in Pic. Be careful to not damage sockets on either end when removing battery. Extra care to not get any adhesive debris in exposed sockets. I have used the solvent with syringe and that can get rather messy and risk getting liquid onto keyboard/screen/motherboard components etc/. This time I used a plastic “Disposable Putty Knife” from Ace hardware. Speakers where easily removed in subsequent steps. Started pushing in from edges with plastic putty knife and battery cells separated surprisingly easy. This method is clean & much easier than the dental floss struggle!! I used Googone with QTips to remove adhesive remnants.

    WARNING TO ANYONE WHO DOES THIS STEP! Be very careful to distinguish the cable end from the socket! I just managed to break the entire socket off of the logic board. I may try to solder it back on, but I may not, since it’s only for the speaker… Very disappointing anyway. The instructions should make it more clear just how delicate the socket itself is, especially right where the photo shows you inserting the spudger under the cable end to start dislodging it. It’s really hard to distinguish the cable end from the socket on this side!

    jiclark - Antwort

    Put the spudger under the very centre where you see the cutout and be gentle !! It does in fact pry upward the wire itself is very fragile.

    Mmm ttt - Antwort

    I used the flat end of the spudger and tried to match the width of the connector, while applying gentle upward pressure to pop it off.

    Evan Shulman - Antwort

    The key to accomplishing this step easily and without danger to the socket… is to follow the instruction (and the picture) PRECISELY by placing the spudger flat end under the CABLE (not the connector). Lifting the CABLE easily removes the connector from the socket without getting anywhere near the socket.

    davelarose - Antwort

    Parts of this guide are used for other guides, such as replacing the top case. But also, the speakers can be damaged by solvents, so it’s not a bad idea if the method you’re using has the possibility of getting solvent on them. It’s easy enough to just remove the screws and move the speakers out of the way without disconnecting them.

    maccentric -

    Removing the speakers is very important if you use solvent — solvent will damage the speakers and can lead to a horrible buzzing. I failed to understand this and skipped removing the speakers when dissolving the glue and paid the price: speakers that are essentially unusable.

    That said, unplugged is not necessary, merely removing the speakers (Step 16).

    Removing the speakers is very important if you use solvent — it will damage the speakers and can lead to a horrible buzzing. I failed to understand this and skipped removing the speakers when dissolving the glue and paid the price: speakers that are essentially unusable. (See comment on Step 14).

    Question - when putting the new battery back into the case, do we need to remove old glue/add new glue, use no glue at all, or place the battery in and then reheat to melt the old glue so that it will adhere to the new battery? Thanks!

    chal740 - Antwort

    My adhesive didn't have enough tack to hold the battery in. I just reassembled without it and can't hear the batteries moving, but I have the rubber grommets and not screws as MarkB mentioned. Fo future repairers, I'd recommend buying some nonpermanent two sided tape just so you have the option to fasten it in.

    I wish they would find another way of securing the battery, this is ridiculous.

    brian whittle - Antwort

    On each 'corner' of the frame that surrounds the two centre batteries, rather than 'plastic screws' mentioned by adriendavernas there are 'domed' rubber grommets. These presumably rest against the inside of the bottom cover when it is fitted thus supporting the batteries. As there were no screws underneath in these 4 positions, there is no need to remove these grommets. Agree with alex re: removing the extra T5 screw on the power board.

    My model (late 2013 MacBook Pro Retina), did not have any screws in these locations. They were rubber “feet” in the same locations. They are not attached in any way to the computer. They simply lift up with the plastic battery frame. My replacement batter kit came with the plastic frame - and these rubber “feet” - already installed. No need to save the old ones.

    Ralph Begleiter - Antwort

    I echo the others who found that there was only one screw (on the upper right). The remainder were rubber-like “feet”. I removed them, but they don’t seem to fasten anything, so this wasn’t necessary. As Ralph pointed out, the ifixit replacement battery comes with new “feet” installed.

    some models have one screw on the upper right corner of the battery cells (battery circuit board), the rest are rubber feet that doesn’t hold anything. no need to replace them if your replacement battery doesn’t come with them.

    Air can tilted upside down to freeze the adhesive works very well also. I just used this method today to pull a battery.

    aadeshina - Antwort

    @aadeshina - That’s an excellent suggestion. I took your advice, and tried it with a can of MG Chemicals “403C Super Cold Spray”, which I had on hand for other electronics work. It worked very well — it froze the adhesive to the point where it was quite easy to work the plastic iFixit cards under the batteries, and pry them loose.

    I like this freeze technique much better than the volatile, flammable, risky solvent approach for removing the batteries. I did however find the solvent useful for softening and removing the residual adhesive remaining in the case after the old batteries were removed.

    There are many brands of aerosol freeze sprays available on Amazon, DigiKey, Mouser, etc.

    As above, Another solution to remove the batteries, (Maybe not environmentally friendly): I removed the Logic board and related components to protect them and took a can of compressed air (the kind you buy at office stores for cleaning printers and such) Invert it and use the included straw to direct the propellant (which is extremely cold under the batteries. The adhesive holding the batteries in becomes brittle and u can just pop them out with medium force using a wide putty knife. Took me 3 min to do.

    JVerdonck - Antwort

    Before proceeding with the solvent, I suggest considering using dental floss to slice through the old adhesive. (See next step 22 below for more details.) Because the solvent is so dangerous (flammable and caustic), I felt the “dry” use of floss would be better. I assumed that I could revert to the solvent if necessary after trying the floss.

    I managed to remove the battery without the adhesive by using the thread technique. More info in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fupkPz55... . Just make sure you have someone to help you and hold the laptop in place for you.

    driesverfaillie - Antwort

    Thank you very much! This is an absolute win technique

    Денис Медведев -

    I agree that this worked much better. A few suggestions for others:

    - one type of thread that works very well is fishing line. While you can use monofilament (the clear plastic), if you can get the braided fishing line you will find it is extremely thin and super strong and works very well for this

    - string pulled tightly can cut more than just the adhesive, so be careful what you allow the string to rub against while you are pulling it. I can easily cut into another cable or the battery

    - I found that gloves (not latex, big gardening or construction gloves) helped me use string without needing to go “ow” every few seconds from your hand hurting. I have some gloves with nice grip and good hand protection, I would get the string positioned, put on the gloves, and start pulling. It worked fantastically

    I was able to remove the battery easily with the string method, and i did not remove the speakers to do so. However, when I went to seat the new battery I chose to remove the speakers to make it easier to place

    hamiltont -

    Thanks for the awesome suggestion!

    I used waxed dental floss (not sure whether the ‘waxed’ is important), which worked like a charm. I cuts through the tape much easier than seen in the linked YouTube video linked above. Each battery cell was loosened within 5-10 seconds. It worked amazingly well, and taking out the old batteries proved to be no challenge at all.

    JX Low -

    Just finished a fix using floss to remove the battery. It works really well.

    pedroparracho -

    Because I preferred to avoid using the flammable adhesive remover, I tried using the dental floss method. I assumed I could always revert to adhesive remover if the floss didn’t work. The dental floss method worked beautifully. I used a slow, methodical “sawing” motion with the floss, rather than brute force. Although it took some strength, it worked well, and I didn’t need to use the remover.

    Rather than using the plastic cards (though I think they would have worked fine), I used a plastic putty knife (standard, available in any hardware or paint store); this gave me a sturdy handle with which to grip and maneuver the blade. This, too, worked well.

    Ralph Begleiter - Antwort

    I used the threading technique as well. I had a spool of pretty tough sewing thread. But it kept breaking, so I tripled it up. Still kept breaking but eventually got through it.

    For the 2 middle cells I had to thread the thread behind the plastic frame thing and both cells, but passed the thread in between the side of the frame and the cell. This was really tough and I broke the thread a few times.

    After I was finished I just cleaned everything up with acetone (aka. the adhesive remove/nail polish).

    Tony Le - Antwort

    This is the hardest part of the whole process, if you don’t have any of ifixit tools you can use a hair dryer. Apply heat on the cell (make sur you don’t apply too much heat), flip the laptop apply heat for 20 to 30s on the aluminum side just near the trackpad( depending on which cell you wanna pry open) and use a credit cart gently. this will do.

    Houmem ZAGHDOUDI - Antwort

    I used dental floss, but fishing line might be better. The floss kept breaking. I wound the floss around the special screwdrivers which helped with pulling it through. I used Goof Off to remove solvent AFTER I got the batteries out. It worked well. You can get Goof Off at any hardware type store.

    Thirtyeyes - Antwort

    I used thin nylon string (~1/16th inch), since dental floss cut into my fingers too much, putting some solvent on the string too, once in position around cell corners, so they worked together. (Applying solvent for 1 minute along edges 1st, as suggested).

    Allan Miller - Antwort

    Alex Birkett - Antwort

    I used a sock filled with rice and it worked exactly the same. Microwaved it for 2 minutes (hot enough to barely hold) and set it on the batteries as above for 2 minutes.

    Then I reheated it for a minute and opened up the laptop, and slide my DYI iOpener under so it was directly under the batteries (across the trackpad portion of the laptop). This worked great because the heat went straight thru the aluminum and softened the adhesive. I ended up letting the screen hang over the edge of the table while I pried the batteries out.

    Daniel - Antwort

    I really don’t understand why it is suggested to heat this side of the battery! I used an iOpener on the aluminium case, on the side the battery is actually glued to. You have to open the screen and place the laptop upside down on the edge of a table with the screen hanging down over the edge. This way the heat gets directly to the glued joint between the case and the battery. Worked a treat no solvent needed

    I have found that different techniques are needed for different parts of the job. The outermost two batteries on both sides can be removed by softening the adhesive as shown with the fluid. The batteries are in a shallow dish so there is less chance of the fluid running everywhere. Just apply sparingly. As Christopher Girke suggested, the middle two are best removed by applying the solvent to the edge of the card. Multiple applications are necessary but this avoids the fluid getting where it should not go. Also it is easier to push in from the sides, not the front as shown in the photo to avoid a lip on the underside of the trackpad.

    Cameron Malek - Antwort

    I recommend you do not use the liquid adhesive remover for the middle battery pods. These do not rest nicely in their own “tray” like the two parts on the left and right. Consequently, it is very easy to apply too much liquid, allowing the excess to run into your trackpad and logic board. Even though the liquid dries quickly, it does leave behind a little residue. The result from my experience was a slightly faulty connection for my screen, causing random pixel flickers in dark spaces on my screen. Use the floss method found elsewhere online. It is much more difficult to get out but does not risk damaging your computer.

    Andrew Jensen - Antwort

Also for this entire procedure, applying the solvent to the card itself was the best way to go.

    Just like the recommended adhesive remover method, the dental floss method also left some strips of dry adhesive inside the laptop. I used the flat spudger to peel it off. Have patience; it will peel.

    Ralph Begleiter - Antwort

    I used GooGone adhesive remover (non-flammable, non-toxic) to loosen remaining adhesive. It worked well, applied with a paper towel. It took several applications to thoroughly clean the computer case. Allow it to dry thoroughly before adhering the replacement battery.

    Ralph Begleiter - Antwort

    I just used the remaining iFixit provided glue dissolver and a cotton swab to clean up the remaining glue. It worked just as well as GooGone.

    toodarkpark - Antwort

    my advice is not be worried about putting some pressure and ripping that thing out. it as easier to clean up the adhesive after the battery was gone. the kit came with a paper towel and i just dripped the remover all over the case and scrubbed it off with the paper towel.

  32. Entferne den Akku. Entferne alle alten Klebereste aus dem Gehäuse des MacBook Pro, bevor du einen neuen Akku einsetzt.
    • Entferne den Akku.

    • Entferne alle alten Klebereste aus dem Gehäuse des MacBook Pro, bevor du einen neuen Akku einsetzt.

    • Mit etwas Glück kannst du jeden einzelnen Klebestreifen langsam mit den Fingern abziehen.

    • Falls das nicht klappt, träufle etwas Klebstoffentferner auf jeden Klebestreifen und lasse ihn 2-3 Minuten einwirken. Dann kannst du die Klebestreifen mit einem Plektron oder einem anderen geeigneten Werkzeug aus deinem Kit abkratzen. Das ist etwas langwierig, hier hilft dir nur Geduld!

    • Wische den restlichen Klebstoffentferner ab und lass dein MacBook Pro ein paar Minuten an der Luft trocknen.

    • Bei dem Ersatzakku aus dem Kit sind die Klebestreifen bereits angebracht. Probiere zunächst aus, wie der Akku passt und achte darauf, dass er genau ausgerichtet ist, bevor du die Schutzstreifen vom Kleber abziehst. Anschliessend musst du jede Zelle gut andrücken. Findest du am neuen Akku noch andere Streifen als am alten waren so entferne diese!

    • Kalibriere den neu eingebauten Akku: Lade ihn auf 100% auf und lasse ihn mindestens zwei weitere Stunden am Ladegerät. Ziehe den Stecker und benutze dein MacBook normal, um den Akku zu entladen. Wenn die Ladeanzeige am Minimum ist, dann speichere ab und lasse den Laptop an, bis er von selbst ausgeht. Warte wenigstens 5 Stunden und lade dann auf 100% auf.

    • Wenn dir nach der Installation deines neuen Akkus etwas Ungewöhnliches auffällt oder Probleme auftreten, kann es sein, dass du den SMC deines MacBook Pros zurücksetzen musst.

    RECOMMENDATION: The battery connector and associated screw are critical when considering battery alignment. Also don’t forget the left and right speaker assemblies when aligning the two small outer cells. I didn’t consider these and had issues.

    Also, keep the transparent top film on the battery to keep the cells aligned with respect to each other, and always support all the cells if handling upside down.

    Cameron Malek - Antwort

    I agree, if you don’t reinstall the speaker assemblies before installing the battery, they may be impossible to put back in after the battery has adhered

    Dallin Christensen -

    Anyone reconcile the different instructions for batter calibration? Inside battery package is a business card that says drain below 10% then charge uninterrupted to 100%. That is completely different then above: “Calibrate your newly installed battery: charge it to 100%, and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Unplug and use it normally to drain the battery. When you see the low battery warning, save your work, and keep your laptop on until it goes to sleep due to low battery. Wait at least 5 hours, then charge your laptop uninterrupted to 100%.”

    ryan - Antwort

    The longer calibration method detailed in the guide is correct. I believe the printed cards are due for an update.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    My replacement battery came with a clear plastic protective cover stuck across the top. This protective cover helps keep the four battery cells and their frame aligned properly for fitting into the space. Remove the protective cover (it peels off easily), however, before closing up your computer.

    I agree that test-mounting the new battery, including re-attaching both speakers, BEFORE removing the adhesive covers, is essential for perfect alignment of the batteries… and especially important for alignment of the battery connector and its solo screw.

    Ralph Begleiter - Antwort

    Pay attention to how the new battery sits in place before removing the adhesive strips. Although I did this, I didn’t notice that the rubber “feet” on the plastic frame around the middle batteries were very slightly out of alignment. The result was that the case could not be closed tight enough for the screws to fasten properly seal the case. It took a lot of poking around and attention to minor detail in order to get the case to fasten back in place.

    ellamama - Antwort

    I followed the tutorial and everything went pretty smooth, started the calibration and got to the step of recharging after waiting 5 hours and my mac wont turn on. the magsafe charger is glowing red/orange but the mac itself is showing no signs of power or charging. Any tips? thanks in advance

    Ronald Francis - Antwort

    Removing the adhesive strips of the original battery was relatively easy - compared to removing the strips of the iFixit battery… what took me 1.5 hours. All because the first battery delivered was defective so I had to repeat the replacement. Thanks for the free and quick replacement battery - fair attitude, but that did not saved my time…

    Andras - Antwort

    Always amazing when it all works at the end. Combined the battery repair with the fan replacement. Looks like the battery I got from the Bay is an OEM from SMC. All went well. Now I just need to remove the display gate anti-glare with some Listerine or the W5 towelettes from LIDL (if in Europe) and the machine is like new. ;-) Thanks fixit and everyone who contributed and shared their comments.

    Daniel - Antwort

    If you have only 1 screw and the 4 rubber grommets, be care about the plastic trim piece on the battery be sure it can be seated properly before removing the adhesive. When you do permanently seat the battery be sure the two bottom holes (where the grommets or screws should be) are properly within the case or you won’t be able to seal the back. I had a bit of an issue but it was easily solved by forcing the plastic opening piece into the case with a screw driver tip. I left the battery without the 4 rubber grommets as they seemed impossible to seat into the holes on the plastic piece of the battery. So far, so good.

    Thirtyeyes - Antwort

    I would suggest temporarily reinstalling the battery connector and circuit board screw to ensure proper alignment.

    trebor - Antwort

    After finishing and installing the new battery, i’ve started charging ……but the fan is very loud and running fast, and no light indication on my charger saying if it’s charging or not…..(?!). I’ve follow every step and checked twice every manipulation.

    any tips ? Thank you

    bouddha23 - Antwort

    Hey Buddha23, I’m having the exact same problem right now. Did you find a way to fix the problem ?

    mathieugenois -

    Thank you for the very detailed step-by-step as well work arounds. The replacement process went smooth- the more time consuming ones were: (1) removing the battery. I found that inserting the plastic card as far as I could initially , then dropping the acetone there made it for easier detachment. (2) a lot of time to clean the gooey stuff , I used the acetone with a small tooth brush and my nails to scrape as indicated.

    Anyway, I am glad I found this site/ provider. My MacBook Pro, 2013 model is working like new . I just arrived from the USA in London - and was considering purchasing a new laptop ( which would be even more costly for me). Big thanks.

    I am also glad I purchased the tools kit , without which, I would not have been able to accomplish the task. I used a brush to clean the dust after I removed the cover. in my case, as I never had done it, had considerable amount of dirty stuff. Needless to say the tool will be used for additional cleaning for this extended life.

    Naly de Carvalho - Antwort

    Also had difficulty with the rubber “feet” and the plastic frame around the middle batteries, close to the front edge, since the right one was slightly out of alignment. Had to use a little force to push it toward the MLB and then down. The rubber grommets also wouldn’t fit in the much smaller holes under them. I just removed them since they don’t really serve much purpose (I doubt it will rattle w/o them). Plugging the battery back in also was more difficult than it should be, due to alignment.

    Allan Miller - Antwort

    The adhesive on the battery is inadequate in my experience. You may need to purchase double sided spongey tape to add additional adhesion otherwise you will feel and hear the battery flapping in the enclosure. It’s easily enough to slide in the additional tape section afterwards, but worth keeping in mind.

    Jamal - Antwort

    When my battery came out, there was a thin metal sheet under only the two center cells that came out with it.

    I was going to check to see if the new battery had that sheet pre-installed. If not, I would remove it and slip it under the new one.

    A week passed between when I removed the dead battery and when I installed the new one. Consequently, I forgot to check for the sheet. My recollection of the cells feeling floppy indicates it probably did not have the sheet, and I should have removed and reinstalled it with the new battery. Can anyone confirm or deny? I can't tell from the image above if it is present in the empty battery bay or not.

    If I have in fact failed to install a needed metal sheet, what are the consequences of it not being there? What is it? A heat shield? The battery is behaving as expected so far, and the track pad seems to be completely normal as well. So, not sure if I made a mistake or if I need to go back in to fix it or not.

    Tim - Antwort

    FWIW, I went back to look at the photos at the page above to order the battery. The metal sheet is not there. So it looks like it stuck to my battery coming out instead of sticking to the case, and I should have swapped it. How much trouble am I in?

    I can't see how to add a photo directly. It is also not letting me add a link, for some reason. Not sure if this will work or even is allowed, but this is a photo of the sheet I am talking about on the old battery:

    https://share.icloud.com/photos/078luIxu...

    Tim -

    Two days later and I have not noticed any ill effects, yet.

    Tim -

    this is what i did.

    1. put the battery in and try to screw it all together before pulling the clear cover on the back of the new battery. i removed the top clear sheet because it was easier to work with. but get a feel for how it fits before adhering it to the case.

    2. i also removed the little rubber grommets out of the 4 eyelets. i couldnt make it work with them there. also i wedged the eyelets in between the battery and the case. this was the most annoying thing. the case wouldnt close unless the were in place.

    3. make sure you connect the battery and screw it in as well before pulling the self adhesive on the battery.

    4. i also had to take off the protective cover from step 4 on the new battery and then re-applied it after i was done.

    5. the battery connector was off by like 1/2 in for me. it was easier to plug that in and screw in the board first. then place the battery.

    6. i removed the speakers and put them in last. it easier to do after. i tried doing it before like folks said but no luck for me.

Great thanks to the author for this flawless guide! I've just finished the replacement with this guide step by step, it's really useful and considerable! Now I'm so happy to see the battery health comes back to 100%! So relieving! Thanks again!

I'm having an issue with replacing the wifi antenna on a a1502 MacBook, because the socket for the wifi connector from the antenna came off and I am not sure how to reattach it properly because it gives me a "No Hardware Detected" issue. How do I take apart the screen to remove the antenna? Do I need to deal with heating glue to remove the screen cover?

Bobby Quinn - Antwort

I have a 13" Mac book pro that sustained water damage, the laptop continued towoork bit the battery never gained charge and slowly depleted even on mains power, once the battery reached 0% it no longer powers on regardless of mains power, I think it's an issue with the IC would a battery replacement fix this?

Rich searle - Antwort

I did this. Took me about 1 hour. The iopener required more than 30s for me to heat up, but I got it done. My macbook was damaged because of a wine spill. Not sure how the battery got damaged as a result, as there appeared to be no liquid there, but... That was it.

Also, a bunch of the steps are not necessary, if you are careful. You do need to get the speakers out, but you don't need to do some of the other stuff. I skipped 7-12 and 15, instead folding over the speakers carefully, without detaching them.

howieu - Antwort

The procedure worked perfect. Thanks. It wasn't very difficult really, the only challenge was to get the old batteries loose from the adhesive. Warming up the batteries and working with the card is the solution.

Ib Alstrup - Antwort

Thanks to the author for making a really excellent guide! To remove the glued batteries I used an ifixit putty knife and heated it with a miniature blowtorch. Then I placed the heated ifixit putty knife underneath the batteries which melted the glue and enabled me to lift the batteries out.

Philip Kapp - Antwort

Thanks for the guide. Very easy to follow and execute without missing any critical steps that could have caused damage for a first timer. It was a real bear getting through the adhesive, but patience persevered. Two (sore) thumbs up.

What happens when you put the new battery in? Do you have to put more glue to get the new battery to stick or is it already pretty sticky? Do you even need to worry about putting more glue/adhesive stuff?

Fantastic guide guys - well done ! I bought a new battery on eBay and would have been in a lot of trouble without this guide. For what it's worth -there seem to be a lot of questions about glue. I bought a genuine Apple battery, which came complete with glue strips ready to go. Once I removed the old battery and glue strips, I cleaned it up with isopropyl alcohol and stuck the new battery to the clean surface without a hitch.

was your keyboard working after?

Herman -

I installed the battery no problems, but now my keyboard is nonresponsive. Please help!

Herman - Antwort

Take a close look at the keyboard cable ribbon and connector—is there any damage? Try re-seating the cable if you haven't already—flip up the small locking bar on the connector, gently pull the cable out, reinsert it and lock it down.

Jeff Suovanen -

I would add that approaching 2 central battery packs from side is easier (at least on my Mac). Otherwise, great directions for battery removal. Alignment of replacement battery pack, with adhesive covers removed, is somewhat challenging, but I'm back in business.

Dean Livelybrooks - Antwort

Great success with this guide. Some of the steps weren't necessary (i/o board cable removal and speaker cable removal) but all in all it's a fantastic guide. Saved me $$ and only took an hour instead of having it at the repair shop for 5 days!

Fantastic guide!! Like others mentioned, I skipped steps 7-12 and 15. I used the liquid adhesive remover and was just careful with where I applied it and where it went.

It did take me longer than others, about 2.5 hours.

Thank you so much for this! A repair show wanted $400 for battery and labor, and wanted to keep the computer for a week!

Jonathon Haradon - Antwort

I’ve used a thin string to remove batteries. It went smooth and I was finished in about an 1hr. Also, I skipped some of the steps, just unscrewed speakers to the side without removing cables. Tools provided with battery are amazing, especially for this one and done situation. iFixit saved me some money. Guide is very easy to follow. Thanks guys!

Marinko Marinko - Antwort

With heat instead of solvents, Barak is correct in skipping the speaker removal. Be careful in fitting where the wires cross to the two side batteries under the front bumpers. Great fix kit from ifixit!!

jbell303 - Antwort

Just finished this. Thank you very much for this detailed guide. I used isopropyl alcohol (IPA) against the glue and it worked really well with some patience and lots of tactical tilting. I would still go with the iFixit package if it was shipped to my country, because it’s probably a bit easier and because iFixit is awesome and cool.

While this certainly isn’t a repair for a beginner I wouldn’t say it’s so hard. It’s really only hard because of the glue removal and the careful prying of the various connectors. The rest is just loosening screws and keeping them in order.

Karl Birkir Flosason - Antwort

Completed this tutorial step by step, I bought extra toolkit just to insure I had all tools - 150E for everything VS 210E from apple + 1 week or more without a computer. Took me about 40 minutes - 50 minutes to do everything, and it was fun. So totally worth it! Hope this battery lasts for a long time

Claude M - Antwort

This guide is definitely missing information. If you aren’t extremely careful, you will get acetone into your keyboard and completely ruin it. There is no warning whatsoever that this can happen.

jeremybillheimer - Antwort

This happened to me. The acetone somehow managed to get in contact with the underside of the keyboard and I ended up replacing my whole keyboard. What was initially an affordable way to change my battery ended up being expensive. Next time, I’ll just take it to Apple Genius.

Herman -

@Herman, yeah my feelings exactly. Supposedly Apple replaces the entire top case in the battery service, so I’m hoping it only costs $200. But that makes my $100 repair cost $300. Not worth it.

jeremybillheimer -

The keyboard is underneath the logic board, not the battery. I can see how this might happen if you aren’t careful about where you put the solvent and/or you use way too much, but I wouldn’t fault the guide for that.

Jeff Suovanen -

@Jeff, there is zero warning whatsoever that this can even happen, and its happened to a number of other customers. What is the point of the guide if it doesn’t warn you how to avoid the extremely expensive damage that can occur?

jeremybillheimer -

The debacle continues:

1. You can destroy your keyboard while doing this repair, and the guide does not adequately warn you of this possibility.

2. The keyboard is one of the most expensive and difficult components to replace on this model.

3. While iFixit advertises the replacement battery as OEM, Apple will not recognize it as such. If you then bring it to an Apple store to see if they will repair it, they will flat out refuse to repair your machine. Again, another negative outcome of this repair that it fails to warn about.

Considering the Apple replacement is $200, it is simply not worth the risk to your machine (and the future option to ever have it repaired by Apple again) to save $100. It is reckless, disingenuous, and actively harms the right to repair movement to fail to warn users of this kind of extreme risk.

jeremybillheimer -

There’s a warning in the introduction at the top of the guide to take care where you put the solvent. I know that’s zero consolation and it always sucks to have a repair go sideways on you; I’m just not sure what more can be done at this point. I’ve done a number of MBP batteries with this procedure and had no issues so far, following the procedure closely. If you haven’t already, you may want to reach out to the customer support folks to see about a refund on your kit, so you’re at least not out the cost of that.

Jeff Suovanen -

@Jeff, I’ve already reached out and indicated my frustration, and yeah, a refund is about the best I can hope for at this point to at least offset the additional repairs necessary. I was very careful with the solvent, but it is not at all obvious how it is even possible to get it into the keyboard (which you can’t even see without removing the logic board). I don’t think the guide is clear enough on how to avoid this particular damage, and judging by the comments here, a number of others have had similar problems. Keep in mind, the guide is for people who haven’t done this before and are probably only going to do it one time. They don’t have the specialized knowledge that comes from working on Macbooks frequently. It has to be as specific as possible to the point of hand holding and even warning that you are probably better off just paying the extra $100 to make sure it is done with no extra risk.

Additionally, the guide makes no mention that the replacement battery will result in your machine being banished from Apple’s repair depots. I think that is critical information that a potential buyer needs in order to make a fully informed purchase decision. You can’t claim a battery as OEM when that OEM will disavow it.

jeremybillheimer -

Hi Jeremy,

Sorry to hear of your situation. I have replied to the email you sent our Support team. Thank you for sharing your experience, and we hope this does not deter you from performing repairs in the future.

All the best,

Kadan Sharpe -

Bought the iFixit kit sold here, followed these instructions to the letter, everything went smooth. Used the acetone based solvent method, the only really fiddly bit was getting all the old adhesive dissolved and mopped out. Battery arrived with a 55% charge, now going to watch a movie on battery power to run it down…

impuse - Antwort

Completed the swap out with no problems. Only tedious bit is chiseling off the old adhesive from the case after removing the battery. But if you soak it in solvent (per the instructions) and then lift up at the edge you can use your fingers and pull all the goo up in one satisfying motion.

Thanks to iFixit for not having to give even more to Apple Inc.

Thank you Sam, again. I replaced this battery yesterday in my son’s computer. It was my “practice” before daring to touch my own computer. It went without a glitch. This is a clear and comprehensive guide. I am a 67 yo retired accountant and had never done anything like this before. Today I did my computer (early 2013) again with no problems. I feel empowered!

maria longo - Antwort

Thank you, just changed the battery using ifixit’s kit. Only problem i have is that i have tried to follow the instruction to calibrate the battery however, when my mac got to 15% it went to sleep and I had to connect the power cord. I tried to disconnect it again and it went again to sleep. So I can’t really follow the calibration guide since the computer doesn’t turn off because it runs out of battery, instead it goes to sleep.

Reseted the smc seems to work fine now. Also, i’ve used a different method to replace the battery which seemed much easier to me. I have used a string as a saw instead of the provided cards. I was able to smoothly and quickly remove each cell

Hi all. I changed the battery, most difficult was remove battery. When I start the laptop I noticed the trackpad doesn’t work, fun is working quickly ( since first minute and even cold) and everything run slowly. Do you know what can I do?. many thanks

Niko Las - Antwort

Worked perfectly! However looking at the design of the laptop looks like it’s not necessary to remove all the components like the guide tell you to do, the battery can be disconnected at step 2!

is there a reason why everything must be removed before removing the battery? Is it the danger of acetone affecting the electronic components?

Amritaansh Verma - Antwort

I just replaced the battery, It was a &&^&^$^ anxiety driven process. The screws that came with the battery were the hardest to deal with but I kinda said &&^& it and left it alone. The acetone is terrifying but with paper towels and working very slowly it was possible to get the battery out, the glue out and not experience any issues. Keyboard is fine, I’m waiting now to charge then kill the replacement. Will update if I have any issues.

Ricardo Cortes - Antwort

I used a hairdryer and credit cards to get the adhesive loose. Not saying you should use a hairdryer, just saying it worked for me just fine.

Pentalobe + torx + hairdryer + credit cards (or nylon string) is all you need.

For some reason my battery didn’t have any screws except for the one near the connector which was strange but whatevs. The adhesive seems to be holding well enough.

Moe Poe - Antwort

Replaced it in about 2 hours. Getting the old batteries out was by far the hardest part, especially since they were already swollen and I wanted to be extra careful.

New battery reports 0 cycles and 100% health as expected. Tools were perfect. I did use the string method for the 2 center batteries. Although it would’ve worked with the solvent too.

iFixit is the best. I hope this site exists forever and will continue supporting them.

Thank you!

MUCH appreciation to the author of this guide, and to those who have posted very helpful comments along the way. The instructions - and especially the photos - are outstanding. This repair is definitely not “easy,” but it is certainly do-able. It’s important to follow the instructions very carefully, without jumping around, to assure no damage to delicate connectors. This repair should breathe new life into one of the very best laptop models ever made by Apple. My old battery lasted six years. If the replacement lasts half as long, I’ll be happy.

Tried with other charger, didnt help, tried charging other macbook with my charger and it worked. Any Ideas what can I do?

Kristian - Antwort

@alphaumi You might want to try a simple SMC reset first, but from your description my guess would be it’s a defective battery. :(

Jeff Suovanen -

Removing the old battery is the most time-consuming part of this repair. Patience is ESSENTIAL.

Meanwhile, I used this repair as an opportunity to do some “dusting”. I’d thought I’d been pretty responsible about keeping my PB clean, transporting it safely, etc. I was flabbergasted how much dust and debris had accumulated in 5 yrs. of use! I used a bulb blower to dust some areas. I used a small vacuum with tiny attachments (great for cleaning sewing machines, electronics, etc.) to suck out addition loose crud.

ellamama - Antwort

Well done instructions, even if a little over-kill. I didn’t use adhesive remover or heat to remove my battery. An old credit card wiggled around under the battery with a little force, but nothing more than anyone can do, was enough to cut thru the adhesive of each section in about 1 or 2 minutes of wiggling under each section. It’s easier to start at the corner of each battery section where the adhesive comes to a point since it follows the edge of the original battery.

Wouldn’t it be more effective to apply heat below the batteries? You’d have to unfold the laptop and prop it up somehow, but still…

My ifixit batteries were so bloated that it took nothing but a hair dryer to get them out.

Easy to replace and works excellent! I did forget to wait 5 hours after depleting the battery.. Is it really a big issue? Its charging now..

erik - Antwort

Worked very well. Took about 1:30h while working very carefully. MBP works again like a charm - thanks so much :)

Sebastian Will - Antwort

I have been using this laptop for 6 years until the battery completely died and it became super slow. I was considering to get a new laptop but thanks to this guide i got the courage to replace the battery myself and now it works like a charm again. Thousand thanks for the guide.

I managed to remove battery with dental floss and using rubber gloves for electricians, not the ones that came with the kit. Using dental floss was super easy and quick (around 20 minutes to get the battery out), just do it slowly and pull gently to each side once you get it under. Dental floss does break often, two or three times for each battery component. I suppose this was so easy because my laptop is now 6,5 years old and old battery has swollen a bit, so I don’t know if this advice would help with newer batteries. Also, I didn’t disconnect speaker cables from mainboard and just moved them to each side a bit so that a battery can come out. For me longest process was cleaning with adhesive after the battery was out, so I’m glad that I ordered the full kit with adhesive remover.

Just finished this replacement thanks to this guide. Super excited to see my MacBook brought back to life. It’s still good despite being 7 years old.

I used the threading technique to break out the adhesive behind the battery. A lot less messy and risky than using the acetone I reckon. I only used acetone to clean up the old glue before putting in the new battery.

However, when I went to start it up again I noticed my MacBook was super slow. I then tried pulling the power plug to see what would happened. The whole computer complete shutdown.

Turns out the battery wasn’t being detected by the MacBook. I tried resetting the SMC to no avail.

So I opened it up again and noticed that the battery connected was only on half way and tilted to the side. I pressed it down firmly and it convincingly clicked into place.

Almost had a heart attack but thankfully everything is all good. Battery is reading 1 cycle and 6783mAh capacity.. super sweet! The MacBook feels like new again. Will calibrate to get the most from it

Cheers!

I followed the guide very carefully but now when I turn on the laptop the fan is very loud and then I tried to turn on my WiFi but it doesn't turn in. Can you tell me if there is a known reason for this please

Vimal chavda - Antwort

I managed to stop the fan, but still my WiFi doesn't turn on. It DOESNT say that it can't do it, just when I click it, doesn't do anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Other than that, the guide is spot on, thanks so much

I did exactly the same thing as you and same result fan very loud (could not turn it down) and can not turn on wifi. Also when you go to energy saver current charge says 0%, every change on battery is not saved and you can not turn on battery status (?!) weird 2 people with the exact same issue and results……

Straightforward and easy to follow guide. I would normally freak out doing anything so fiddly, but the guide is great and helped me lots. Took about 45 minutes. Get a bunch of empty containers and post its to write the step and part name and keep everything organised and separate. Very happy to have finished this in one go and without any issues.

markdebono - Antwort

Excellent tutorial I followed it as recommended & it is very good. The extra comments are very helpful. This is the first time I have replaced batteries in a MacBook Pro. I felt confident all the way through, even my 75 year old brain understood all instructions. Thank you for the information.

terryharte - Antwort

Alles hat SUPER funktioniert. Die Schrauben habe ich auf der Klebeseite von einem PostIt aufgereiht und die Bits habe ich vorher auf einen (Kühlschrank)magneten gelegt. Somit waren die kleinen Schrauben kein Problem. Nochmal Danke für alles. Der Apple-Support hatte die Reparatur altersbedingt abgelehnt. Ohne iFixit wäre das Macbook jetzt Schrott.

Mathias Fingerhut - Antwort

Thanks for this tutorial! Easy to follow and replaced the battery in 90 mins.

Niels Guijt - Antwort

I replaced my battery, everything was working fine, but after the first full charge, I was running on battery, suddenly my screen went black. It seems something is wrong with the backlight (external screen is fine, and if I shine a light through the Apple logo I can see the image on the LCD, so that seems to be working fine). I’m wondering is this coincidence or did something go wrong? Did someone have a similar issue? Any help would be welcome…

wannes22 - Antwort

Okay, it seems to be solved. Opened my laptop again and unplugged / plugged the screen connector (after disconnecting the battery) and now it’s working again. A bit strange since I didn’t touch that connector when replacing the battery, but I won’t complain it’s working again :)

Hallo an das iFixit Team,

Die Anleitung ist perfekt, die Lieferung des Akku Packs von iFixit ging rasend schnell, im Notebook sah es präzise genau so aus wie in der Anleitung. Das Notebook ist repariert und läuft wieder. Herzlichen Dank!

Siegfried Schrotz - Antwort

This worked like a charm! One thing I would like to mention is that there are probably a few steps that can be skipped to save time. For example, you don’t need to do steps 7-12. Just remove the screws holding the left speaker (left one, as you’re looking at the laptop, right one when the laptop is right side up), and gently pull the speaker up and away, so you can work on the battery. The right speaker (again, as you’re looking at the laptop) was a different story, and that one I did remove entirely. Also, it was the easier one to remove (just the 3 screws holding it in place, and the connector).

Other than that, the operation was successful, and the most annoying and time consuming part was not actually removing the battery. It was cleaning up the mess left by the adhesive residue.

All in all I’m very happy with the result. :)

Thank you, iFixit!

arsradu - Antwort

I installed the battery many months ago using the (wonderful) guide and everything works perfect. I only have one question: is this battery slightly smaller than the original one? I used the strips to glue it down, but I feel like it’s moving around in the casing. I opened it again and put extra strips, but the problem is still there… Any advice?

info - Antwort

A wonderful and detailed guide. Thanks a lot the step by step guide. I managed to replace my Macbook Pro Retina Late 2013 laptop battery by following this guide. I recommend this guide and other iFixit guides to all.

Mithun Kavulla Kandiyil - Antwort

I followed the GREAT instructions very carefully, even to sticking the screws to a diagram with double-sided tape, but sadly, when I reassembled my Macbook, it was totally dead. Even worse, the charging light on the Magsafe connector didn’t light up. I definitely didn’t damage the battery connector when I unplugged the old battery. Anyone got any ideas?

Alan Stevens - Antwort

I am going to perform this later today and I am going to be using the heat gun/iOpener method instead of adhesive remover… I am wondering if it is actually necessary to remove the I/O cables and the speakers??

Steps 7-17 seem unnecessary if you use the heat pad / iOpener method to replace the battery.

Tyler Trollinger - Antwort

Thank you very much for the guide. I followed it from 1st to last step and everything worked flawlessly (just had to heat the batteries glue with the iOpener a little bit). With a little effort and pacience I could remove the old batteries without the solvent.

After precise reassembling all works fine. Thanks again, I saved a lot of money.

Hellmut Alde - Antwort

I am very appreciative of the instructions the author did. Many thanks again!

Naly de Carvalho - Antwort

Hello, i replaced my battery around one year ago. Worked fine till one month ago. When my laptop is not connected to power supply, sudden switch-offs happen. When i I switch the computer on again after a sudden switch off all works fine, except from time and date (00:00, 01/01).

What should I do? Thanks a lot and long live the right to repair

Gabriele Perfetti - Antwort

Great guide, take your time. Only difficult part was removing the glue from the original battery. I used strong thin dental floss and some strength, it eventually gave way. Just take your time and do this when you have nothing else to do.

Farhan Ghani - Antwort

This worked great for me, almost feel like i didn’t use the solution too much and was able to pry the battery units off with the spudger, was really concerned about messing up the key board or the track pad but neither happened thankfully. Took the opportunity to upgrade the SSD to a 1TB so between this battery replacement and the SSD i have reconditioned the 2013 macbook pro for my wife and am currently upgrading the OS. Thanks for the detailed instructions!

Rick Boyd - Antwort

Just finished this battery replacement, but the trackpad is a problem - won't click easily. The battery seems to be working fine. I re-opened the case and manipulated the rubber feet on the battery. Better, but still not quite right. Any other suggestions?

ghm3 - Antwort

Worked a charm. Many thanks for excellent instructions

Derek D'Costa - Antwort

I managed the battery replacement and realized, that the battery was still not recognized / found by my MacOS. The battery didn´t even show up in the system settings as it one month ago - until the battery suddenly "was lost" and which was the reason for the battery replacement. After the battery replacement I realized, that my old battery has not been defect but that the actual failure was the tiny DC-in power Jack Board. Hence, I ordered a replacement kit for the DC-in power Jack board, too, and just finished installing it (... instructed also by ifixit...) and it really worked. Now I am very glad that I can continue working with my Mac Book Pro, which is still doing well.

Folks, do not give up, sometimes you have to try twice...;-)c

Thankx to Sam Goldheart and the German Translators Sandra, Vau and Annika!!!

Juergen Rolfes - Antwort

So I did this and all went well until the battery shorted out and melted down a week after I installed it. A problem I ran into, and which may have been the cause of the melt down, is that the thin plate of metal that is between the battery and the track pad got bent in the battery removal. This metal plate isn't mentioned in the directions above, so I didn't know that it was something I needed to look out for.

Laura Astwood - Antwort

Thanks!! I did it!! I was really afraid about damaging my macbook, in fact I bought the ifixit kit to change the battery one year and a half ago...

I have followed the instructions step by step, also reading the comments, and it has been a complete success!!!

The best of all, I am proud of myself. I encourage everybody to do it and fix it. Thanks!!!!
