In dieser Anleitung zeigen wir dir, 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, der den Akku hält, 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.

Entleere den Akku deines MacBook Pro zur Sicherheit vollständig, bevor du mit der Reparatur beginnst. Eine geladene Lithium-Ionen-Batterie kann ein gefährliches und unkontrollierbares Feuer verursachen, wenn sie versehentlich perforiert wird.

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 verwendet, 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 Schrauben

      • Acht 3,0 Pentalobe Schrauben

    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 -

    Is the Pentalobe screwdriver mentioned in the tools list? I did not have one so I used a filed down flat blade screwdriver. Not a fantastic idea, but it works.

    Alex Birkett - Antwort

    Yes, it's mentioned on the top of this page. P5 Pentalobe to be precise. I didn't have one either, so I bought one from iFixit and that works fantastic. An absolutely precise fit, which is important especially when you might open your MacBook a couple of times during the years you own it. Not using the correct tool might do more harm to the screws than you want! I once had this with a Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro, which has Torx screws (T4 I think) and I used cheap Chinese quality tools, with the result that both the tool and one of the screws are damaged.

    addvariety -

    the macbook in the picture is 2012. does it has the same structure as 2013?

    Edison - Antwort

    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

    is P5 supposed to be for all 10 screws? it works on the 2x 2.3mm at the top, but not for the 8x others for me. what size screwdriver for the 3mm? thanks

    monsieurescargot - Antwort

    Yes, the p5 works for all 10 pentalobe screw heads for bottom cover. The the different size mm reference only refers to the difference in length of the screws, but again both heads are p5.

    There are two screws that are shorter-they go to the back near the vent.

    wrbandllm - Antwort

    This was already mentioned at the start, it says 2x 2.3mm screws and those are coloured red instead of orange for the other ones in iFixit's image.

    What is the black vinyl-y sticker on the inside of the case (some sort of shield?). I was forced to slightly puncture it in order to replace the feet on my laptop. Thanks in advance.

    Tommy Huang - Antwort

    • Falls nötig, entferne die Plastikabdeckung vom Batterieanschluss.

    Do you know where I can purchase this plastic cover? Mine is missing and no one will work on my computer without it.

    jodieabc - Antwort

    There is no point on going near the battery or logic board. I cut out these steps with no issue. It is precautionary but unnecessary.

    Jaime Leonard - Antwort

    • Trenne den Stecker der Batterie mit dem flachen Ende eines Spudgers von seinem Anschluss auf dem Logic Board.

    • Achte darauf, nur den Stecker und nicht den Sockel anzuheben. Ansonsten besteht die Gefahr das Logic Board irreparabel zu beschädigen.

    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

    I have the some problem. I was thinking to replace the whole battery but I am not it will solve the problem. Any suggestions?

    salvatorebarbera -

    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 -

    Have either of you replaced the battery and/or circuit board to fix the MacBooks with the water damage ? I have the same problem with the MacBook working fine when connected to power but dying immediately when the power cord is removed.

    Steve - Antwort

    Hi, Steve. I had the same problem: Macbook Pro 15 retina with coffee damage. And it worked fine when connected to power. I made it working after replacing the whole battery. It seems that circuit connected to the battery becomes disabled to prevent short circuit.

    Vadim Gribanov -

    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.

    Ethan Tarquin - Antwort

    Thanks for the comment. My MBP isn’t powering on after I walked through these steps, and I assume it is because the battery connector isn’t fully connected. (I can’t check yet since I borrowed the pentalobe screwdriver)

    Caleb Steinborn -


    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 -

    If I only want to replace the trackpad cable, then which steps should I skip? This step seems unnecessary

    Parth Gudhka - Antwort

    • Biege den Stecker der Batterie etwas zur Seite, um während der Reparatur einen versehentlichen Kontakt mit dem Anschluss zu verhindern.

    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. -.-

    sebasgaes - Antwort

    I put a small piece of blue painters tape on the battery connector contacts to prevent it from accidentally making a connection and shorting. This helped keep things a bit more protected.

    LaymanLab - Antwort

    That’s a great idea!

    David Lilliebridge - Antwort

    I used a small piece of paper to prevent the connector from connecting, no need to wrestle with even low-stick adhesive.

    dbrick - Antwort

    • Entferne die beiden 2,1 mm T5 Torx Schrauben, mit denen die Abdeckung des E/O Board Kabels am Logic Board befestigt ist.

    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

    • Nimm die Abdeckung des E/A Board Kabels mit einer Pinzette aus dem MacBook heraus.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Mit dem flachen Ende eines Spudgers kannst du nun den E/A Board Anschluss aus seiner Buchse auf dem Logic Board herausholen.

    • Achte darauf, dass du den Hebel auch wirklich nur am E/A Board Kabel ansetzt und nicht an der Buchse selbst, denn sonst könnte dein Logic Board beschädigt werden.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Hebe das Ende des E/A Board Kabels nach oben, das mit dem Logic Board verbunden war und biege es um, so dass es nicht mehr im Weg ist.

    • Um Schäden am Kabel zu vermeiden, solltest du es nur am E/A Board Ende biegen, wo sich ein Falz befindet.

    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.

    • Setze die Spitze eines Spudgers vorsichtig unter dem rechten Lautsprecherkabel in der Nähe des Steckers an und hebe es aus seiner Buchse auf dem Logic Board heraus.

    Same as my comment on Step 7: This step was not necessary for me to remove the battery. Perhaps it's a safety precaution? Regardless, I skipped the speaker cable removal (Steps 11, 12) and didn't have any problems replacing the battery. Same as my comment on Step 11: This step was not necessary for me to remove the battery. Perhaps it's a safety precaution? Regardless, I skipped the speaker cable removal (Steps 11, 12) and didn't have any problems replacing the battery. ( FYI - I used a heat path method, vs the solvent)

    barak - Antwort

    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!

    The plastic screws just need to be pulled out with a spudger/finger and you're good to go. I have the same model, there's also a screw on the power board not mentioned in this guide, takes a T5 screwdriver/bit

    alex - Antwort

    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

    What is the part number for this battery, or where can I find it?

    dfreeman110 -

    I wish to ask the same question.

    vbivanov -

    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.

    Vince Cipriani -

    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.

    MarkB - Antwort

    After destroying the adhesive which secures the batteries (bad technique or lack of patience in my effort) what is recommended to secure the batteries when reassembling?

    maxB - Antwort

    I only had the single far right screw to remove.

    barak - Antwort

    My replacement A1582 battery actually had holes for the screws, though my original A1582 battery only had the 'domed' rubber grommets. Anyways, putting in the OEM A1582 battery without anything in the holes worked ok.

    Srini Seetharaman - Antwort

    I wanted to put the rubber grommets on the new battery, so I used tweezers to get them back through the holes on the new battery

    Dallin Christensen - Antwort

    Can somebody tell me what kind of screws I would need to secure the new battery? I would like to put screws into the screwholes left open by those rubber grommets.

    • Der flüssige Klebstoffentferner aus dem iFixit Akku Austausch Kit kann die Antireflexschicht des Bildschirms deines MacBook Pro beeinträchtigen.

    • Um deinen Bildschirm zu schützen, befestige eine Aluminiumfolie zwischen Bildschirm und Tastatur und lasse sie dort, solange du arbeitest.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Wenn du ein iFixit Akku Kit mit flüssigem Klebstoffentferner verwendest, wird es jetzt Zeit, sich vorzubereiten.

    • Wenn du die alternative Methode mit dem heißen iOpener anwendest, kannst du die folgenden drei Schritte überspringen.

    • Der iFixit Klebstoffentferner enthält Aceton, welches Haut und Augen reizen kann.

      • Wenn du mit dem Klebstoffentferner arbeitest und ihn aufbringst, solltest du immer deine Augen schützen. (Eine Schutzbrille ist in deinem Kit enthalten).

      • Insbesondere auch wenn du Kontaktlinsen trägst, musst du zusätzlich die Schutzbrille aufsetzen.

      • In deinem Kit sind auch Schutzhandschuhe enthalten. Wenn deine Haut empfindlich ist, solltest du die Handschuhe jetzt anziehen.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Ziehe den schwarzen Gummistopfen von dem Fläschchen mit Klebstoffentferner ab.

    • Drehe die Kappe der Flasche, um sie lösen oder zu entfernen, bevor du die Spitze des Applikators abschneidest.

      • Die Versiegelung der Flasche wird dadurch geöffnet und der Druck kann sich ausgleichen, bevor du die Applikatorspitze abschneidest. Wenn du diesen Schritt übergehst, dann kann die Flüssigkeit beim Abschneiden der Spitze unkontrolliert herausspritzen.

    • Schneide die verschlossene Applikatorspitze mit einer Schere ab.

      • Schneide die Spitze an der engen Stelle ab. Dadurch kannst du den Klebstoffentferner beim Ausfließen besser kontrollieren.

    • Drehe die Abdeckkappe wieder auf und verschließe sie gut, bevor du fortfährst.

    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

    • Gib einige Tropfen des Klebstoffentferners gleichmäßig unter den Rand der am weitesten rechts liegenden Akkuzelle.

      • Du musst nicht sehr viel vom Klebstoffentferner verwenden. Das Fläschchen enthält mindestens die doppelte Menge, die du brauchst, um alle Akkuzellen zu entfernen.

    • Warte 2-3 Minuten, bis der flüssige Klebstoffentferner unter die Akkuzelle eindringt, bevor du mit dem nächsten Schritt fortfährst.

    • Gib, wenn nötig, weitere Tropfen des Klebstoffentferners dazu, aber nicht sehr viele auf einmal. Wenn du zu viel Klebstoffentferner benutzt, dann kann er bis auf die Rückseite der Tastatur fließen und sie möglicherweise beschädigen.

    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 -

    • Wenn du keinen flüssigen Klebstoffentferner hast, verwende einen heißen iOpener, um einen Bereich des Klebers, mit dem der Akku ins obere Gehäuse eingeklebt ist, zu erwärmen und dadurch weicher zu machen. Anschließend kannst du dann an diesem Bereich den Hebel ansetzen.

    • Mit dem heißen iOpener kannst du die eine Hälfte der beiden am weitesten rechts gelegenen Akkuzellen bedecken.

    • Nach etwa einer Minute kannst du dann den iOpener erneut erhitzen und ihn über die andere Hälfte der beiden am weitesten rechts gelegenen Akkuzellen legen.

    I did not have an iOpener. I did not fancy using a heat gun on the batteries either so I used two flat metal spudgers to prise them off the body of the mac book. I hit the spudgers with a small hammer.

    Alex Birkett - Antwort

    I popped the freaking iopener in the microwave following this instruction. Said to heat for 30 secs put on for a minute then reheat after that minute. Then read on the iopener that I shouldn't heat more the once unless after two minutes. Just wonderful.

    Jennifer Myer - 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.

    barak - Antwort

    This heating with the iOpener took me forever. I tried my fair share of heating followed by nudging slowly with a credit card 1 mm at a time. Finally pried it off after 30 mins.

    Srini Seetharaman - Antwort

    • Schiebe eine Plastikkarte zwischen die am weitesten rechts gelegene Akkuzelle und das obere Gehäuse und trenne so den Kleber zwischen den beiden.

    • Achte während dieser Prozedur darauf, dass du keine der Akkuzellen mit deinem Werkzeug beschädigst. Aus einer beschädigten Lithium-Ionen-Batterie können gefährliche Chemikalien auslaufen und/oder sie kann Feuer fangen. Verwende deshalb nur Plastikwerkzeuge.

    • Wenn du den Austausch nach der Methode mit dem heißen iOpener vornimmst und dann beim Hebeln auf gehörigen Widerstand stößt, hör lieber auf und erhitze den Bereich nochmal mit dem iOpener, bevor du weitermachst.

    In addition to using the wheat bag/iOpener to loosen the batteries, I found it useful each time I inserted the plastic card under the batteries to give the card a 'wipe' with isopropyl alcohol to ensure that it didn't stick to the adhesive holding the batteries down. it also presumably eases the glue away from the batteries somewhat.

    MarkB - Antwort

    Do the same tools and steps work on a MacBook Pro 15" late 2015 model?

    Sean - Antwort

    Heat can be dangerous to Li-Ion batteries, no???

    Alex - Antwort

    Excessive heat can be dangerous, but the iOpener is designed to never get hot enough to cause permanent damage. Using a heat gun or hot plate could be dangerous, but the iOpener method is the safest one we know of =)

    • Heble die am weitesten rechts gelegene Akkuzelle mit Hilfe der Plastikkarte aus dem hinteren Gehäuse heraus.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Wiederhole die obigen Schritte mit der benachbarten Akkuzelle:

      • Gib eine kleine Menge des flüssigen Klebstoffentferners unter die Akkuzelle und warte 2-3 Minuten, damit er einziehen und den Kleber auflösen kann.

      • Wenn du mit der alternativen Methode arbeitest, erhitze bei Bedarf den Bereich erneut mit dem iOpener.

      • Schiebe eine Plastikkarte etwa zweieinhalb Zentimeter zwischen den Akku und das obere Gehäuse. Dann heble die Zelle langsam nach oben, damit der ganze Kleber sich löst.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Belasse die Plastikkarte erst einmal unter den beiden am weitesten rechts liegenden Akkuzellen, damit sie nicht wieder am oberen Gehäuse ankleben.

    • Wenn du einen iOpener benutzt, erhitze ihn nochmal und lege ihn diesmal über die am weitesten links gelegenen Akkuzellen.

      • Lass den iOpener auch wieder jeweils etwa eine Minute an seiner Position und wärme ihn zwischendurch wieder auf, um je eine Hälfte der am weitesten links liegenden Akkuzellen zu erwärmen.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Wiederhole den obigen Vorgang, um nun die beiden am weitesten links liegenden Akkuzellen aus dem oberen Gehäuse herauszubekommen.

      • Denke daran, dass du wieder erst eine kleine Menge Klebstoffentferner unter jede Akkuzelle einbringen und dann 2-3 Minuten warten musst, bis er eingedrungen ist und den Kleber aufgeweicht hat.

      • Mit einer zweiten Plastikkarte kannst du jetzt die beiden am weitesten links liegenden Akkuzellen vom oberen Gehäuse trennen.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Belasse die zweite Karte in der Ecke zwischen den beiden linken Zellen.

    • Für die folgenden Schritte kannst du entweder eine dritte Karte benutzen, oder die aus der rechten Ecke. Der Kleber in der rechten Ecke sollte jetzt trocken / kühl genug sein, um die Zellen bei Bedarf leicht wieder hochziehen zu können.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Um den Kleber zu lösen, der die beiden letzten Akkuzellen in der Mitte festhält, gib wieder einige Tropfen des Klebstoffentferners an jede Zelle (beziehungsweise verwende deinen iOpener).

      • Es kann hilfreich sein, die eine Seite deines MacBook Pros ein paar Zentimeter anzuheben, so dass der Klebstoffentferner in die richtige Richtung unterhalb der Akkuzellen fließt. Du kannst auf einer Seite deines MacBook auch einfach ein stabiles Buch oder einen Schaumstoffblock unterlegen, während du daran arbeitest.

      • Fahre mit der Karte etwa zweieinhalb Zentimeter zwischen die linke mittlere Akkkuzelle und das obere Gehäuse und löse so den Kleber zwischen Zelle und Gehäuse.

    My laptop had a strip over these center batteries. I had to remove that before getting the center batteries off.

    Srini Seetharaman - Antwort

    My plastic cards were hitting a black trackpad backing. I thought this was the adhesive not coming off. I also didn’t want to harm the battery and didn’t bring the card up enough.

    I found out by going through one of the side batteries, but could have just raised the tip of the card very slightly.

    Cameron Malek - Antwort

    • Ziehe die Karte wieder heraus und stecke sie etwa zweieinhalb Zentimeter tief zwischen die rechte mittlere Akkuzelle und das obere Gehäuse, um den Kleber auch hier zu lösen.

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Mittlerweile sollten die äußeren Zellen bereits lose sein, nur noch die mittleren Zellen sollten Widerstand leisten. Falls dem nicht so ist, löse jetzt bitte erst die vier äußeren Zellen vom Gehäuse, bevor du weitermachst.

    • Setze den Hebel an den beiden mittleren Zellen an, um den restlichen Kleber zu lösen und hebe den Akku aus dem Gerät.

    I found that gentle application from a heat gun works well enough to soften the adhesive. Use a plastic card to help as you go. Use caution not to over heat anything.

    John Lerefebvre - Antwort

    • 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!

    • Kalibrieren deinen neuen Akku, bevor du ihn benutzt: Lass den Akku über Nacht vollständig entladen, dann lade ihn auf 100% und warte, bis er wiederum ganz entladen ist und dein MacBook Pro automatisch herunterfährt. Danach kannst du ihn wieder aufladen und anschliessend ganz normal benutzen.

    • 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

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!

HU CHEN - Antwort

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.

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.

For the second time all is fine, delivery time and everything is working well. I replaced the battery and the display on my MacBook Pro a1502 following the tutorials. The most difficult part for me was removing the old the battery .


david - Antwort

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?

Pae Yung - Antwort

Quick delivery ;)

Very useful guide. Everything is working great again. The hardest part was removing the old battery.

Thank you very mutch, work`s perfect!

Stefan R - Antwort

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.

First guide that I've used from your site. Very simple to follow making the process extremely stress free. Couldn't be more grateful! Thank you!!

Gavin Seamer - Antwort

A grand success! Thanks so much! This guide and the battery kit were perfect.

Sage Freter - Antwort

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!

大大大大大瓜砸 - Antwort

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!!

tremm298 - Antwort

Thanks so much for putting this together, it worked like a charm and you’ve saved me a ton of money. I appreciate it!

Henry Briscoe - Antwort

Thanks, it worked but after I was done 2 keyboard keys came off because of the adhesive remover now idk what to do

abbas jassim - Antwort

This guide made everything easy peasy, lemon squeezy! Lol. Easy to follow and love the pic by pic. Thank you.

Alex Valenzuela - Antwort

Easy to follow. Glad I got the full toolkit and a quality battery.

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,

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.

Tim Goodsall - Antwort

Instructions were perfect. And thanks to barak as well for the ‘rice in a sock’ idea.

desturtz - Antwort

Hey all, i followed the instruction and it worked pretty well for me. I just have noticed, once my macbook started again, that it doesnt find any documents, applications or any other file via spotlight function and via the search function in the finder anymore. i tried already to reset the spotlight search by adding and deleting HD to the privacy of the spolight search, but that didnt work for me. does anybody know how to solve this problem. I try to avoid to set up my mac via recovery disc.

thanks, pete

peter.anton - Antwort

This worked for me!

Open Terminal

Show hidden files in finder with defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

Hold the 'Option/alt' key, then right click on the Finder icon in the dock and click Relaunch

Navigate in finder to the root volume (Macintosh HD)

Delete .metadata_never_index

Delete immediately in Trash

In Terminal: sudo mdutil -i on /

peter.anton -

took me 45 minutes and I did not purchase any of the tools or fluid, just used lolly sticks and patience, Brough the battery from china for £30 with the special screwdrivers needed.

james essex - Antwort

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.

Max Ime - Antwort

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
