    • Peel away any stickers from the backside of the rear case covering the feet you have chosen to replace.

      • Any stickers you remove will most likely be unsalvageable for re-use. That's okay! Your MacBook does not need them to function.

    • Remove any broken or damaged feet.

      • If the foot you are replacing is still intact, you can use your tweezers push it out from the inside.

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

    • Peel a replacement foot from the plastic backing.

      • The adhesive is fairly strong—make sure that you are peeling the foot up, not tearing the plastic backing.

    • Align the new foot inside the cavity.

      • Make sure the alignment nub on the foot is lined up with the small hole near the perimeter of the pad.

    • Lay the foot down while keeping it properly aligned.

    • Check for proper alignment from the inside of the case. The alignment nub should be slightly visible through the alignment hole.

    • Press the new foot into place firmly with your finger, then apply pressure by pinching the foot from either side of the case with your finger and your thumb.

    • Maintain pressure for 30 seconds to set the pressure-sensitive adhesive.

    • Repeat the last seven steps for any remaining broken or worn feet.
