  8. Do not yank the upper case off quickly. The case is attached to the logic board via a ribbon cable. Lift up at the rear of the case and work your fingers along the sides, freeing the case as you go. Once you have freed the sides, you may need to rock the case up and down to free the front of the upper case. There are four plastic clips above the DVD slot, and another above and to the left of the IR sensor.  These clips can be very difficult to disengage without prying.  They can also be difficult to re-engage during reassembly.

    • Reassembly Tip: Press down firmly on the tip of the top case above the location of each clip until you hear a snap to reseat them in their slots.

    • Reassembly Tip: The two center DVD clips will rarely snap back into place properly without help, and downward pressure will instead simply deform the frame around the DVD slot. Support the frame by inserting a plastic spudger into the DVD slot directly under the clip location until it is snug, then press down until you hear the snap.

  9. Disconnect the trackpad and keyboard ribbon cable from the logic board, removing tape as necessary. Note: It is possible to replace the hard drive without disconnecting the keyboard from the chassis, but it will need to be held upright to keep it out of the way, while still allowing you both hands to work on the drive removal.

    • Be careful when removing the keyboard-trackpad ribbon cable to ensure that the rear of the upper case is disengaged from the area near the hinge. It is easy to accidentally bend the screw receivers on either side of the keyboard.

    • Remove the upper case.

    • Don't forget to transfer the small magnet attached to the right side of the LCD to your new LCD. The absence of this magnet will prevent your MacBook Pro from entering sleep mode.

      • Depending on the model of your laptop, the magnet may be located inside a hole in the front bezel, not the LCD itself. See second picture.

I didn't have any trouble getting this apart - I used a small screwdriver from a jewelry repair kit (the set of six super small screwdrivers). I slide it in on the left front where it was open and slid it towards the IR thing. After that clip opened up I just slid it over towards the DVD drive... presto. Will update when I put this back together in a couple days. This guide should warn in the beginning to keep the screws identified in some way or you'll have a %*^! of time putting it back together.

I didn't have a spudger handy, but I got by just fine using an old credit card. Don't use a current one, as I dented up the edges pretty good in the process.

I've disassembled many a pc laptop without instructions, but macs are special ;) it was very helpful to have all the details spelled out for me. Thanks!

Confirming Success #44.

While I would advocate for good lighting, non-geriatric eyes, or a vision headset, and serious patience, I do not thing this was extremely difficult. I'm 66. Took my time, and it came up ok.

By the way, a heavy guitar pick works well as an alternative to a spudger. Keep one rounded and file another one to a point for removing the cable connections/ zif connections etc. I have been using these now for a few repairs and they work really well.

Be very carefull and bee patience. It´s very helpfull to have something like the ifixit magnetic project mat to keep the screws in order, otherwise you will have a hard time to put the parts together.
