Einleitung

Anhand dieser Anleitung kannst du den eingeklebten Akku mithilfe eines iFixit Akku Kits sicher aus deinem MacBook Pro entfernen. Der Klebstoff-Entferner in deinem Kit löst den Kleber, der den Akku fixiert, und ermöglicht es dir so, ihn mühelos zu entfernen.

Der iFixit Klebstoffentferner ist leicht entzündlich. Führe diesen Austausch in einem gut belüfteten Bereich durch. Du solltest währenddessen nicht rauchen oder in der Nähe einer offenen Flamme arbeiten.

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

Hinweis: Das Lösungsmittel, das zum Lösen des Akkuklebers verwendet wird, wird deine Lautsprecher beschädigen, wenn es mit deren Kunststoffgehäusen in Berührung kommt. In dieser Anleitung wird der Lautsprecher entfernt, bevor mit dem Akku weitergemacht wird.

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

  1. Entferne die folgenden P5-Pentalobe-Schrauben, mit denen das Gehäuseunterteil am MacBook Pro befestigt ist:
    • Entferne die folgenden P5-Pentalobe-Schrauben, mit denen das Gehäuseunterteil am MacBook Pro befestigt ist:

    • Acht 3,0 mm Schrauben

    • Zwei 2,3 mm Schrauben

    To remove the back panel there are two different pentalobe screws 2.3mm and 3mm however on the tools list there is only one screwdriver. Will I be able to remove both screws with the same screwdriver?

    lantzero - Antwort

    In my case it worked. Don't know if it was a 2,3 or 3 mm screwdriver

    Christian Mohr -

    The 2.0 and 2.3 mm measurements are screw lengths, the screw heads are the same sized P5 pentalobe heads. We include the screw lengths so you don't put the wrong screws in the wrong places and end up with screw heads poking out of your device. Hope that clears up some confusion =)

    Sam Goldheart -

    Yes the same screwdriver will remove both screws, the difference in screws I believe is the length and width but the head is the same.

    Epifanio - Antwort

    It took about 40 minutes due to an extreme measure of caution but I did it! The only real difficulty was reattaching the screen to the base (yes you have to pry the hinges open) and re-connecting the camera wires. After a few tries the camera wires finally came together. I'm hating Apple for all it's frailty and magical screws but I love ifixit!

    Simple guide, but it solved my problem. Was wondering why the top two screws weren't going all the way down. Hadn't realized they were 0.7mm shorter.

    Emilio Mejia - Antwort

    I have BootCamp running Win7 on my MBPwRetina15" 2013'Late. I run Visual Studio to build and run my Company's Application which is very CPU & NVidia (specific) intensive. So much so that during a build & run of app I was averaging about 85~95+Celcius!!! And every so often would reach 100Celcius!!! I could not take it anymore so I decided to delve into and re-apply Thermal Paste on the CPU/GPU. I ended up going with CooLaboratory Liquid Pro instead of the traditonal AS5. The original Thermal Paste was pure garbage,,, part of the CPU seemed like it was missing TP. I was scared to do this but it turned out easier than I had imagined. I am currently building the same application and can already observe that the temps average about 75~85 and once in a while will reach 90Celcius. So I am seeing about a 10~15 degree drop in Temps and that makes me very happy!

    Alvaro Suarez - Antwort

    Nice to hear that, i was looking for that kind of information. I have a MBPwRetina 15 Mid 2012 and looking to obtain the best performance!

    Jose David Valle -

    Woa! Thanks dude! And you follow some guides here for the thermal paste? My mac 15’’ early 2013 heats up a lot but I’m a bit worried about touching anything

    Bert0ld0 -

    Good to list the bit needed to open the case: P6

    brian2burnett - Antwort

    Much easier than expected. Sounds like several people had trouble with the backlight. It is possible that they damaged something by not first making sure to power down the computer completely with the “Shut Down” command. This should be step 1 before removing the back cover screws. Also as noted all the back cover screws are Apple Pentelope #5 bit, but 2 of the screws are shorter than the others. This bit is is hard to find in most stores. Buy it on line along with the Tork #5 and #8. 11/21/2017

    Replaced my Magsafe 2 yesterday and it works perfectly on my MBP 15” ea13. However, when I plugged in the charger I heard the startup sound twice and then I got to the login page where I realized the keyboard didn’t respond.

    So I thought I should restart the computer so I clicked ”shut down”. But the keyboard is dead. I can’t start it. I haven’t tried to use a USB-keyboard yet..

    Any ideas what may have caused this to happen and what component ”handles” the keyboard? Thanks

    Jakob Dahlin - Antwort

    Not sure if this has been listed.

    PRO TIPS from a non-pro:

    1 - Keep screws separated and labeled by step # and size.

    2 - Be very careful to get screws in properly threaded, its VERY easy to strip the ccrew holes and screws. Especially the case. Not that it happened to me…

    3 - It was impossible for me to get all the adhesive off the case from under battery, it left a lot on w/o issue (yet).

    4 - Make sure you have Aluminium Foil before starting!

    5 - Upgrade the SSD or HDD while your in there!

    erin - Antwort

    Do we remove the logic board purely to get the speaker enclosures out and away from the acetone? Or does it physically block getting the batteries out? Ie. if I wanted to risk the damage to the speakers, could I jump straight to step 34?

    Obviously I don’t want to melt the speakers, but I’m kinda weighing that risk against losing a screw or breaking a connector…

    Michael Ferenduros - Antwort

    So I did take the risk and swapped out the battery without doing the logic-board + speaker removal.

    Before applying the acetone I put tape on the exposed sides of the speaker-enclosures as best I could - I wrapped the tape, sticky side out, around a card, slid it into the gap, and pressed it onto the speakers. And when applying the acetone, I squirted it as gently as possible onto the side of the battery and let it run down the side, which seemed to help avoid getting too much on the speakers.

    The speaker’s plastic turned white in the spots where the acetone touched it, but it looked like surface damage only. Otherwise it was a nice and smooth procedure.

    Your milage may vary, obviously.

    Michael Ferenduros -

    I changed the battery pack as well without removing the logic board etc. It helped, that the batteries already were swollen, thus access to the glue stripes was easier. It works, if you give a little tension, pulling a pack upwards, and then work with a small blade or knife, and cut the glue stripes. It may take a while, but much less time than dismantling the whole macbook. If you don’t hurry, and don’t apply too much force, you will not damage anything. Beside the 10 cover screws you only have to loose 2 screws for the battery connector. After removing the old pack I used Methanol to remove the glue. I prefer this solvent to Acetone, because it’s less or not harmful to plastic (however, no warranty, just my personal experience). I was able to finish the work in 40 minutes, although it was the first time I opened my Macbook. Well, I am an engineer, that helps, but with dismantling all boards it definitely would have taken double the time. And more risks to break a plug or make a mistake while reassembling.

    Heinrich Jung -

    Success. I needed to replace the right speaker. I thought I was ready at step 22 (you are able to replace the left speaker at this point… but but the right) To replace the right I continued thru step 29 but didn’t completely remove the motherboard. I just lifted it enough to remove and replace the right speaker cable.

    Read all of the comments and solved many problems. Thanks to I-fixit, Walter Galen and all who posted comments.

    If you're taking the shortcut (nylon, wire…and no adhesive for battery removal (you'll def need to remove the adhesive once the battery pack is removed) things to note:

    1 The adhesive may still be pretty strong. Mine was and I broke several wires trying to do the cheese cutter move down the back of the middle two batteries

    2 if you're cheese cutting through the adhesive, when you get to the base, don't go too far. I did and severed the battery cell connector… disconcerting puff of smoke.

    3 the you tube video dude was lucky not to have his two Central batteries adhered . Mine were stuck fast.

    4 don't forget about the two small T 5 screws to the left and right of the battery head board, just below the main battery connector.

    5 the Track Pad sits behind the two central batteries. The batteries are adhered to a flat plate that protects the Track Pad which is pretty resilient. You can do the cheese wire trick without cutting through anything you shouldn't. However be careful if you're using a spudger or other tool between the two centre batteries at the top of the T. This is where the Track Pad connector (its very flat and exposed) to the motherboard.

    6 seems obvious when it's written , but you will need the adhesive remover if you are interested in removing the adhesive. It's a work out.

    I was able to simply push and click those clips back into place before I did the screwing.

    Tim Peat -

    I truly believe this is placebo and the 10*C difference is because in the process the dust was removed from the fan/heat sink rather then the thermal "magic" paste.

    This is a "PC" habit.

    On the other hand, all the cases and protections out there have a bad effect on cooling (not sleeves or pouches) because the whole aluminum body helps dissipate heat.

    I've never had any problems with any mac regarding heat (they do get hot, but it is OK).

    Whenever you feel heat from electronic device means the heat radiates away from it.. which means the cooling is doing a good job :).

    crus - Antwort

    Hey,

    Writing about dust and dirt, do you know any cleaning products for the interior of the mac. i mean how do you clean your laptop, pc, etc..

    Regards

    Jose David Valle -

    This is untrue. Over time thermal paste will dry up and crack and not provide good coverage between the device and the cooler. The paste massively improves the thermal transfer between the chip and the heatsink. If you do not believe in the magic paste then you should wipe it all off and apply just a little bit or none at all and then compare temperatures. You will see the paste is responsible for a big reduction in temperature.

    Why is this step necessary?

    67b5ebab - Antwort

    67b5ebab Good question !

    Why is this necessary ?

    bigb19791979 - Antwort

    This step is necessary to prevent any discharging, arcing, friction/static charges from damaging any of the extremely delicate and intricate parts of this (or most any) electrical system. In practice, you should even be wearing an anti-static band or be working on an anti-static bench even with the battery disconnected so your body doesn't create any unintentional charges.

    One of the first things you should learn in electronics repair and and electrical in general is to cut the power source whenever possible before performing any work. Some systems have schedulers/triggers set that will wake the system up (even when closed) to perform updates and other maintenance tasks as to not eat up CPU and RAM during 'peak hours'. The last thing you need is to have your $2,000 laptop turn on while pulling an SSD (which, correct me if wrong, isn't a plug-and-play based device) which could do some serious corruption and/or damage; when all you had to do was peel a sticker and plug.

    Hope that helps!!

    ~the more you know~

    Colin Devenney - Antwort

    I did not peel back the sticker. It is probably there to help unplug the battery. You can apply a gentle constant pull while you use spudger to lift the battery connector out of the socket as per the next step. It made this very easy.

    Achilles - Antwort

    There is another connector here on mine, just to the left and up above the text on the battery sticker. It is an empty ZIPF socket on all these photos.

    I ordered the whole kit, but seeing how much tedious effort it was to take out so many parts so they wouldn't be damaged by the solvent, I skipped from here to step 34 and only used the supplied cards (credit-card sized) with patience and persistence to free the battery sections from the backing. Success! Then I used a q-tip to apply the solvent to remove the remnants of the adhesive from the aluminum case. My battery was very swollen, so it was like removing little pillows. I think the swelling may have helped to give me additional access with the cards to free it. Success! My MBP is back up and running, and now the trackpad clicks again and it sits flat on a table!

    Joel Replogle - Antwort

    So no need basically to unscrew all the mac

    Bert0ld0 -

    Joel - the purpose of all of the trouble in removing the logic board is to make sure that you don’t damage anything when you start pull out the battery. After this step - it’s true, you have about 12 connectors and dozens of screws to unplug, but I didn’t have any major problems.

    REASSEMBLY - I had to use alot of force to get the official IFIXIT battery connect to push into place to actually connect. I was worried that one of the wires would stress and break. It worked, but it was not super easy this part.

    Jer - Antwort

    I also skipped down to step 50. I stuck a piece of 1/2 inch weather stripping across the middle of the top cover of the laptop to maintain a pitch on the unit so the adhesive remover stayed away from the other components. I applied the remover and used a piece of string to cut through the adhesive strips. I owed the plastic tool from the kit to position the string behind the top of each cell and cut through one ata a time. The battery came out in about 15 minutes. The directions were very informative and useful but I thought the risks associated with dismantling the laptop and reassembling it again were greater. I could not have done it without the details presented. Thank you.

    Thomas Horan - Antwort

    Having broken a connector on a logic board in the past, I worried about all the steps. But I understand the disaster that can occur if cleaning fluid contacts the logic board. Weighing costs and benefits, I also did not remove the logic board. I loosened up the speakers (since only two screws could be removed) to give me space to slide the cards under the battery cells. Using the two cards, sometimes sliding one over the other, I was able to remove the battery in 15- 20 minutes. Removing the remaining adhesive was VERY tedious. Eventually I settled on CAREFULLY applying small amounts of remover with the syringe and using the spudger (both pointy and broad ends) to scrape the remainders off. I cleaned the residual with Q-tips dipped in remover (buy a big box of Q-tips), refastened the speakers, installed the new battery, closed the case and voila.

    James Suojanen - Antwort

    Question, on the first image above you can read a serial and other information ... The creator of the guide could you confirm if it corresponds exactly to the Apple serial on the box? I wonder why I had the laptop in assistance to replace the GPU, and other problems were born once I returned ... to which removed the cover I saw this sticker and I immediately had doubts about it.

    Antonino Auteri - Antwort

    I too found the need to completely teardown the laptop onerous and risky. I’m not certified in anything hardware but I’ve been doing my own repairs for a while. I watched the video referenced above and read the comments there. With some changes, here is what I did, which worked perfectly and minimized the risk, for a whole additional $3 in parts, just myself and in under an hour:

    1. Go to hardware store and get 2 4” bolts ($1 each) and a coil of 20 gauage galvanized wire.

    2. Wrap one end of the wire a few times around one bolt, then tie it off with a knot. Do the same with the other bolt, leaving about 10” of wire between the two.

    3. Follow steps 1-4 in this guide

    4. Slip the wire under one of the outer batteries (use a card or spudger to help get the wire underneath

    5. Grip both bolts with one hand and rock them back and forth, pulling the wire under the battery, using your other hand to hold the case. This should take about 2 seconds (seriously). Repeat for other outer batteries

    (continued)

    steve - Antwort

    6. Pull the plastic frames away from the left and right sides of the center batteries.

    7. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the two center batteries.

    8. Jump to step 55, then reassemble.

    Note: when installing the new battery, ensure the part closest to you is UNDER the two plastic tabs.

    Worked perfectly.

    Link to video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fupkPz55...

    Note: using the nylon thread with that much effort is crazy. Use the wire or fishing line.

    steve - Antwort

    i just got my Kit and started the procedure, i decided to try if i can get the bulged batteries out with a fishing line, which worked fine. No need to use any solvent and even not too much force was needed to get the line under the batteries. I was able to remove the batteries in about 5min, used another 10min to clean the case from the residue, and put in the new battery. All togehter about 20min of work. I´m very happy with the result, Macbook stays now back on its feet, closes correctly and trackpad works as expected.

    manu - Antwort

    Also departed from procedure immediately after STEP # 4 as per JOEL’s recommendation …used a small chunk of fishing line and it worked sans solvent…easily ! Spudger worked quite well to initially position the string /line & the ifixit ( ‘credit’ ) cards were nice for final dislodging of each battery segment from the last bits of residual gooey adhesive , AFTER working the fishing line back & forth down the length of the battery as much as possible. With the old battery out of the way, I used a razor blade to clean out the remaining bits of adhesive gunk. ( Decided NOT to use solvent here, either.) Took me every bit of 1-hour.

    One thing that helped ,too, was a cheap pair of cotton gloves coated on the palm side w/ latex. This kept my fingers comfortable from the pressure of the fishing line & allowed more of a range of force …since I wasn’t wincing from saw-cutting myself !

    John Joslin - Antwort

    I skipped steps 5-33. These steps are completely unnecessary. I used the back of a flat tweezers to separate the battery from the case.

    support64 - Antwort

    so the only reason they are taking all the stuff off before the battery is because of the solvent?

    I used cards and dental floss and just took the battery out … It was a pain in the butt but i got it out with out using the solvent remover solution.

    These are notoriously difficult to remove. I actually damaged 2/3 of the connector pins during the process. Thankfully i was still able to fit them in place. This step should not be underestimated.

    Alvin Chua - Antwort

    If you are not replacing the display case assembly, you can opt to leave all 3 connectors attached and remove the Airport card with them connected. You will need to carefully manage the card and attached cables so as not to damage them(masking tape) as you proceed with disassembly/reassembly. Step 6 will need to be done carefully (camera cable connector). I did it after step 8. I took a picture of routed cables as well before I removed them from channel.

    Fabian Schweinfurth - Antwort

    unless you have really tiny fingers, a tweezer helps, just be careful not to damage the wires or the board as your holding each cable in place. Oh and take your time - this is like the most frustrating step in the process, imo.

    Arn Custodio - Antwort

    The order of the cables doesn't seem to matter when re-attaching. It also might be helpful to unscrew and eject the airport card. Having it free can give you a better angle.

    joey - Antwort

    Definitely the hardest step (when putting it back together). The three pins were on progressively longer plugs, so I put the shortest one on the left and so on. This helps with getting the right angle. I used my fingers and the spudger to guide them back in. It took me easily 10-15 minutes to do this. The pattern that worked eventually was to first adjust the angle of the pin head so that it's x/y/z axes would line up perfectly with the connection if you are able to bring it together just so. If you're off on any of these while you try to bring it together, you won't be able to just click it down at the end. Good luck!

    Agreed, for some reason, the middle one was stubborn — and I was worried the amount of force I applied to push it back on was going to break something - but it did pop back on.

    Removing these 3 tiny cables is completely unnecessary. I removed my fan last week to clean and it slips by these cables. For some dumb reason i wanted to follow this "correct" procedure and now one of the gold connections detached from the wire like it was nothing. Seriously, dont do this. I used a spunger and was very delicate putting it back on... And look what happened. SKIP!

    travismlive - Antwort

    Yeah, I agree, just leave the airport card attached to the pins and remove the card itself. Then you won’t have to fuss with these connectors.

    Jer -

    @tmm Your right on! Just finished replacing my right fan and your tip saved me from messing with these tiny cables. I totally understand your frustration as I was too just about to stick to the procedure, but if it’s any comfort your tip helped someone… so don’t be surprised being rewarded by some good karma :)

    IT’S UNNECESSARY TO DETACH THE 3 TINY CABLES FROM THE CARD, JUST DETACH THE AIRPORT CARD WITH IT’S CABLES ATTACHED BY GRABING IT FROM BOTH SIDES USING TWO FINGERS AND GENTLY SHAKE IT UNTIL IT DETACHES. THEN MOVE THE WHOLE THING A BIT ASIDE.

    THIS STEP IS ONLY NECESSARY TO MAKE WAY TO THE FAN CONNECTOR UNDERNEATH.

    There is one thing though I find missing which concerns:

    1)The rubber heat sink cover

    2 The AirPort/Camera cables

    3)The IO board cable

    All these are “glued” to the fan and you need to peel them off gently using the spudger, now while I noticed that some glue remains on each cable so they will kinda stick again, I wonder what kind of glue is this and where one can buy it?

    Itai -

    These individual instructions are re-used across multiple tutorials. If you are replacing the battery, you probably won’t need to remove the three connections from the Airport card; if you are replacing the display, you definitely need to replace them, because they are connected to the display. I just replaced the battery and the display in a single activity, so I pretty much had to remove everything. Also agree with a previous commentor that it’s easier to reconnect the cables before the card is reconnected to the system board.

    ChrisMBP -

    travismlive is right, you do not need to remove these cables or the airport card. Just remove the I/O board cable, undo the screws, and detach the antenna cables from the fan where they are glued with a spudger. Unlock the ZIF-socket and the you can wriggle the fan out. Probably saved my airport card, thanks travismlive!

    Jasper - Antwort

    I only successfully reattached 1 of the 3 AirPort cables, I just taped the other two. But the AirPort seems to work fine. Do these also have anything to do with Bluetooth though? I do seem to have trouble with Bluetooth after this operation. In any case, it was worth it... I replaced the screen with a new Apple screen for less than 1/2 the Apple Store wanted! Thanks!

    Would soldering them back in place be better than taping? I certainly don't want spare solder on my motherboard, so I figure that'd be a last resort only if I lose AirPort connectivity.

    tweezers to hold the cable and the flat part of the spudger to push down on the connectors is the easiest way to re-assemble

    Jon Ocampo - Antwort

    Replacing these were the most difficult step I encountered. I finally determined that it took slight back and forth twisting of the cable (from left to right as viewed from above) to cause the connector on the cable to twist into position so it could be pressed down.

    Use leverage with tip of a spudger, it’s not that difficult to pry the cables.

    When you reassemble, use a tweezers to put the connector on the right position and push it down with a finger on the other hand.

    Grab the neck of the cable when using a tweezers.

    eskoo - Antwort

    Several of the people above mentioned not disconnecting these three wires. You must remove and replace these if you are replacing the entire display which is what these instructions are about. This is the most difficult step as others have noted. Just be careful and make sure you have the cable level before you start pushing down.

    Walt Goede - Antwort

    If you are not replacing the display case assembly, you can opt to leave all 3 connectors attached and remove the Airport card with them connected. You will need to carefully manage the card and attached cables so as not to damage them(masking tape) as you proceed with disassembly/reassembly. Step 6 will need to be done carefully (camera cable connector). I did it after step 8. I took a picture of routed cables as well before I removed them from channel.

    Reassembling: What makes this so hard? From all appearances I’m just pressing a squat sleeve-and-pin connector down onto the female counterpart. It appears to be circular and therefore not needing to be oriented radially in any particular angle. It doesn’t look hard at all! Does anyone understand what the subtlety is that causes everyone so much grief?

    Chapman Harrison - Antwort

    Reassembling: as so many as commented, this is incredibly hard - and inexplicably so. From all appearances I’m just pressing a squat sleeve-and-pin connector down onto the female counterpart. It doesn’t look hard at all! But I couldn’t do it.

    Here’s what seems to have worked for me: with my left fingertip on the cable holding the connector directly above the female, I used the spudger to press down the flat back of the connector, initially at the top and then sliding along toward the neck. I used normal pressure, and voila, when I lifted the spudger away the wretched wire didn’t spring up again. It was like it wanted to be rocked, or stroked, once, from top to neck, rather than pressed straight down.

    The connector is very tight - I couldn’t even see the join between cable end and the socket and couldn’t see the “ears” on the end of the socket. And, of course, pulling didn’t help. I eventually used tweezers to start things off, gripping on the metal of the socket right where the invisible join was. What a delight to have the join open enough to see! After that, it was easy.

    jerryl - Antwort

    Thank You Jerryl - The tweezers did the trick. They want to pop out so you can use your other hand to apply slight downward pressure to keep them in place. Work both ends of the tweezers gently back and forth and you should start to see the gap get bigger.

    I used tweezers and the spudger. Take the point of the spudger and push on one side of the “dog ear” while supporting the other side with the closed tweezers on the cable side of the dog ear. (Could use a second spudger) work one side the move to the other repeatedly until the connection disconnects.

    This is allows You to push and support simultaneously and minimize the chance damaging the connector.

    Sockets are ZIF with releasing levers on the top. If you pull up on the top padding, you will reveal silver lever handels facing the rear of the machine. Pry up on the LEVER to release the pressure, then pull the lever straight up to release the connector from the socket. DO NOT pry under the edge of the connector to remove these or you may damage the ZIF socket. They may have changed these connectors between models, otherwise I don’t know how this was overlooked in the guide.

    I don’t know why, but I could pull the connector out & in without flipping up the flap. And fans are working flawlessly.

    eskoo - Antwort

    The pictures were confusing to me so let me add some more context. There is a ZIF socket (Zero insertion force) being addressed in the first picture. This socket has a black top that is currently closed down on the socket. Using your tool you need to lift this flap up to release the wire underneath (This release happens in the second step). Hence only pull up on the black flap enough to make it go from horizontal to vertical (Swing flap). Neither picture shows it in the up position. Step 2, Picture 2, Then gliding your flat spudger, you goal is to lift the wire that was in the ZIF socket out by lightly lifting up on both the wire and the rubber cushion on top of it. Make sure you lift both. You are successful when both are lifted up and out and facing vertical instead of horizontal.

    Frank D - Antwort

    To really see which part of the ZIF socket has to be lifted up you should compare the pictures of step 10 and of step 12, preferably in its original size.

    When I got to this step I realized the screw was stripped. I'm unsure if it was stripped by my efforts -- I used the prescribed P5 screwdriver that was also used for the other screws, and the screwdriver still works when putting the lid back on.

    So to extract the stripped screw in Step 5 I've ordered iFixit's Precision Screw Extractor Set.

    Now I'm wondering if I also need to find a replacement screw since I probably won't be able to use the stripped one again after it's been extracted? The screw is called: 3.1 mm T5 Torx screw as per this guide .. the best I can find on eBay are screws called: 1,4 X 3,1 mm Torx T5 or 1,5 X 3,1 mm Torx T5 ... will one of these work? Would I be able to just go to a hardware store and find the proper screw or is it a specialty item?

    Lorte Messenger - Antwort

    I'm sure you've long since figured it out, but for the benefit of anyone else reading this, a P5 is not a T5. It's a different screwdriver. The driver for the screws on the outside of the case will not work on the screw holding the SSD. I'm not sure why they left it off in the list of tools at the top.

    Dave Miller -

    The screws on the outside of the case are Pentalobe.

I've been unable to swap the drives because neither mine nor the loaner (which are both the same model) appear to have a T5 screw holding the SSD in place. Both of them appear to have a T4, not a T5 (whatever it is is smaller than a T5 anyway, so I'm guessing it's a T4). So now I'm on hold until I can find a T4 screwdriver.

    Dave Miller - Antwort

    OK, got the new tool set, and yes, it really is actually a T5 screw, you just need a really sharp driver. My existing T5 driver was getting a little dull on the tip. So make sure you have a really new/precision T5 driver/bit to use (and again I'll point out that ifixit failed to list this tool in the list of needed tools at the top).

    Dave Miller -

    It's definitely a T5, just takes more control vs only strength. I went left and right in small increments while pushing down to let the screwdriver dig in before slowly being able to loosen it up.

    This is one of the fussier flex cables to reconnect. I'd say it's worth opening it back up and reseating it. Only takes a few minutes—just disconnect the battery and then come straight to this step. Make sure the cable contacts are clean (wipe them with a little isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth), and that the connector is clear of any dirt/debris (give it a good blast or two with some compressed air). Make sure the cable is inserted perfectly flat and straight into the connector (this is the hardest part, just takes patience and a little dexterity). Good luck!

    This is really a pain to pull out. You sorta have to lift it up and out - I was worried I was going to flex the cable and break it too much.

    This keyboard ribbon is so thin. It is like thinner than X-ray film. I was afraid to remove the ribbon from the socket. So, I skipped this step and follow other steps till ‘Step 30’. I didn't remove the logic board as shown in Step 31 and 32. Instead, I removed DC board screws and then DC board from the hole. The cable from the DC board connected at bottom corner of the logic board. I hold the MacBook Pro vertically and lift the logic board slightly and removed the DC board ‘plug’ from the socket. Next, I plugged in the new DC board and followed this procedure in reverse order ( from Step 30 to Step 1). Everything went fine. Important Note: When lifting logic board, please do it carefully and very slowly. Don’t be hurry and don’t break anything. Use magnifying glass and Magnifier in your iPhone to see the tiny parts big and clearly, before removing them.

    reassembly: so far the hardest step. After getting all the connectors above board, I still couldn’t quite line up the screw holes. It finally turned out that the board was being prevented from being in its full leftward position because the edge of a flange at the top of the USB port was directly positioned against the edge of a flange on the case. I used my thumbnail to press down on the port’s flange so that it slid under the case flange, allowing the board to shift left another half-millimeter and make everything finally line up.

    Definitely unscrew and remove the two screws that hold the MagSafe 2 connector then remove the connector with the board.

    The connector that’s not mentioned in the dissasembly manual is the right hand loudspeaker connector. It pulls up, just the same way as the left hand loudspeaker connector does. No locking tab.

    Other than that it’s a brilliant dissasembly instruction manual, well done.

    I took the logic board out, re-soldered U8900 (well known issue with these boards) and put it back together following the manual in reveres. All works fine now.

    One thing that I did which helped. I printed the manual off, then stuck the screws in every case to the page next to where each screw was described using cellotape. So every screw went back exactly where it came from.

    For me, this step was the most hard part when reassemble. Because it is easy to forget or hard to reconnect MagSafe 2 connector properly.

    I just replaced the battery in a 2011 15 inch MacBook pro last week. It took maybe 5 minutes and cost around $100. Now the life is over 100% because the new battery I got was actually a higher capacity than the stock battery.

    I find it actually almost criminal that Apple has progressively tried to make it harder and harder to do DIY maintenance and improvements. At this point I refuse to buy a new Mac. I have 15 apple products in my house….but they are not going to get any newer. I prefer to buy a good used mac and put new RAM or an SSD drive in it. Maybe the graphics is not quite up to par but they are good solid machines. People (maybe a smaller subset) want choice and options and preventing any DIY work is a bad move in my mind! Typing on a 2012 MacBook pro 13 inch…which is a great size. I was able to add a 1 TB SSD to it, but it has 8 GB or RAM and that is not enough….Chrome freezes constantly and you can only have a few apps open.

    I want to remove the 2 center cells to get at the track pad, but it seems that plastic frame forces you to remove all the cells. Am I right? That makes the job much harder.

    After replacing the battery I can’t charge the battery to 100%. Maximum charging is 91%, the led at the power cable does not get green even after hours of charging.

    Even a SMC reset did not help….. Any ideas?

    hefe_killer - Antwort

    Got the same problem as hefe_killer. I reset the SMC, yet sometimes my MacBook just shuts off and when I charge it it says 1% even though it had maybe 50% or so left when it shut off. Also when it runs out of battery it immediately shuts off instead of falling asleep.

    Have you tried re-calibrating it?

    Derek - Antwort

    I think that in “Mop up any remaining adhesive remover and give your MacBook Pro a few minutes to air dry.” - the “mop up part is a major understatament.

    This is by FAR the most laborious, messy, and time consuming step in the whole affair.. Of course it does not have to be done perfect but..

    Alex Miro - Antwort

    I recently replaced the battery on my MBP mid 2012 and it was working fine. I did the calibration and it seemed the battery was doing great. I was using my laptop until it hit 10% and the laptop suddenly shut down. I have tried to turn it back on using the power button but it is unresponsive. I have performed an SMC reset but it still will not turn on. How would I know if the battery is defective?

    Justin Hong - Antwort

    @justinhong93 Easiest way to check is to plug the old battery back into the board and see if that makes any difference. It’s a little tricky because obviously you don’t want to pry the old battery out until you’re sure whether it’s bad. But IIRC you can carefully set the old battery on top of the new one and plug it in. Secure it with some masking tape and carefully flip it over and turn it on. If that resolves the problem, it was probably a defective battery. Good luck!

    Is it really necessary to remove everything or does it just give you more room to remove the battery and the adhesive?? This seems like such a daunting task when removing the battery seems so simple.

    Cheyanne Witcher - Antwort

    I just installed the battery, it wasn’t as bad as i thought. Im anxious to make sure everything is working, can I use the laptop while its charging in its calibration state? The instructions say to charge fully and then an additional 2 hours, so does this mean (A) we can have it charging while we use it or (B) leave it powered off and charging until full, then an additional 2 hours, then we use? im confused

    Joshua Rivera - Antwort

    @joshrivera Answer (A). It’s okay to use while it’s charging.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    So after double checking everything, and resetting the smc, I notice my battery status was not showing up on the menu bar. I check system preferences and the batter is at 0%. Seems like it’s not being recognized at all.

sweet! Way easier than having to use a heat-gun to soften the adhesive. Definitely looking forward to using this product in future repairs.

Juan Lara - Antwort

is it necessary to remove the board? Can we just remove the battery directly?

reloadro - Antwort

Going straight for the battery will work, but the solvent will leave cosmetic damage if it touches your speakers (and maybe more than cosmetic damage if there's enough of it). It's pretty tough to get the solvent only under the battery while the speakers are still installed. Removing the logic board allows you to then remove the speakers, and at that point you have a nice clear path to the battery.

Note: Early 2013 Retina Macbook Pro TRACKPAD REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS.

IFixit only has instructions for the 13” early 2013 retina trackpad, not the 15” and they are quite different. You have to remove the battery to replace the trackpad in the 15” retina.

When you remove the battery, you see a brown plate covering the trackpad and a single screw. Do not mess with the screw - that’s just the click adjustment. Simply pry off the plate with the spludger. Then you’ll see six tiny phillips silver screws - undo all of them and then push the touchpad plate out. It was pretty easy to put the new one back in. Then finally test the trackpad clickiness on the corners and middle and adjust the screw until it “feels right”

I found something that works well loosening that glue. Cyanoacrylate UN-CURE. The stuff used to un-glue crazy glue. Readily available on line. Works very fast - <5mins. It’s somewhat scary in that - who knows what it will do if you get it on the speakers - or the motherboard, if you try to replace the battery without removing it (as I did). But the combination of the UN-CURE and a plastic spudger - and I had the battery(ies) out in about 10 mins. No ill effects. I used regular 91% Isopropyl to get the residue off the case and the plate covering the trackpad because I didn’t want to spread that UN-CURE around, wantonly. Alcohol works - but not nearly as well as UN-CURE. Probably safer.

joe - Antwort

Does the battery come charged? I’ve put the new battery in and reassembled the computer. I tried to power up the laptop but it won’t start up. Any suggestions would be most helpful. Thanks.

Brian T Prairie - Antwort

It is starting up but the display is not working. Any suggestions?

Brian T Prairie -

My questions now are did I mess up the display? Or the cable? Or the board the cable is connected to?

Brian T Prairie - Antwort

@briantprairie—The first and easiest thing to check is whether the display cable got reconnected properly. You can also try plugging in an external monitor—if it works, your computer is fine and there’s an issue with your built-in display connection or the display itself.

I replaced my early 2013 model battery without any problem using this technique:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fupkPz55...

I highly recommend it, as you don’t need to remove any electronics and you don’t have to use solvents. My tips are: I used cotton butcher thread instead of aluminum, and wear heavy duty gloves to avoid burning/cutting myself with the thread due to heavy pressure. As indicated in the video, start from the top of each cell, slide side ways and make your way to the bottom of the cell, it cuts the glue nice and easy (but it requires firm and steady pull). The whole operation took ~45 minutes. Ignore comments that battery cell will ignite, if you don’t puncture or pinch the cells nothing bad should happen.

lvw - Antwort

real easy with that method ! the whole process was done under 30 minutes . no solvant, no hassle.

Benoit -

The video doesn’t seem to be aware that the two center battery packs are glued, too. Was there any trouble working around the plastic frame when de-gluing these? And did you have any trouble with the track pad?

bobthrollop.redirect -

I ordered the battery including the fix kit from iFixit. But in the end i decided to also use the technique with the dental floss because it seemed safer than the method with the adhesive remover. I just performed step 1-4 of the iFixit guide and removed the batteries with the dental floss and plastic cards as shown in the video. It took me a bit more than an hour. Anyway thanks iFixit for the guide and the ordered battery also seems to work perfectly fine.

Thomas Biasion -

I did the battery replacement, but now my left side alt and tab keys don’t work. Any ideas?

davis003 - Antwort

Get tutorial!!! Tip, look though the guide, get yourself a piece of paper and write down the screw sizes or step and separate them as you take them out. Thought it wasn't going to be worth removing the board but once it was out I can see how it would have been much more difficult to apply the adhesive remover and to get the pry card under the batteries. Step 30 is missing instruction to revive the two screws off of the dc jack.

Dan Butler - Antwort

Well, I did leave the board in place, placed the mbp elevated to make sure the anti-glue did run below the battery away from the board (and foil to protect the screen). Then prying and cutting the tape with the black tool and finished the removal in 15 minutes. First tried the cutting rope method but that did not work out well. FIRST UNCHARGE THE BATTERY! Online browsergames work very well for this :) The battery (ordered via iFixit) worked immediately and was charged 72%. Somehow I think the iFixit toolbox should only contain a curved knife to cut below the battery (by turning it around in circles).

Hugo Logmans - Antwort

I highly recommend buying a MacBook Pro 15" Retina (Mid 2012-Early 2013) MagSafe 2 DC-In Board with this battery. Mine was so old and dirty that even after cleaning it, my battery would not charge. I finally took it out and cleaned the space between the center pin and the adjacent pins. My new battery is charging correctly now but I don’t think this will last forever. It would have been great to replace this part when my motherboard was out. Now, it’s gonna take me an hour just to replace this silly little part when it fails again.

bryan18 - Antwort

Everything worked perfectly, thanks for this great tutorial!

Mykhailo Opanasiuk - Antwort

Excellent tutorial-very complete. And kit was awesome-everything you need.

My only issue is many of the steps above are unnecessary if you are very careful. You really dont need to remove any parts (see Kim Pro YouTube video).

Also, touchpad backing plate is likely to come off with battery pack, no matter what you do. That’s okay-just remove it slowly and carefully once battery pack is free of laptop.

Finally, use plenty of adhesive remover, tilting top of laptop towards you and away from parts. And LET IT WORK AT LEAST 5-6 minutes (not 2-3 as instructed). Work with dental floss and prying tools.

Scott Oakley - Antwort

I recently completed this repair, after disconnecting the battery I dripped a couple drops of adhesive remover behind far right smaller cell, let sit for a min and wiggled the plastic card behind the battery came right up I just kept going without removing anything else, speakers or boards, just be careful when you get to track pad don’t pry just steady pressure and wiggle back and fourth while gently pulling up battery came right up then used razor blade to clean some of the left behind adhesive, new battery set fit right in alighted screw holes glued down plugged in put back on whole repair took less then half an hour.

dan - Antwort

I have finished this repair by using a thread and NOT removing the motherboard as described here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fupkPz55...

. The key was to put couple of drops of adhesive remover every couple swings onto the thread. A floss was too weak, so I have used 4 intertwined floss threads . It took me almost 4 hours but I have spent almost an hour working on the first cell without using adhesive remover before I have realized my mistake. I have also spent decent amount of time cleaning the remainers of apple adhesive.

I bought the kit to replace the battery of my MBP Early 2013 because the original baterry had exceeded a thousand cycles.

The change was a success. I did not follow all the steps, I just put the solvent in the cells and remove the battery. I cleaned the computer well and put the new one that came in the kit.

Now comes the NEGATIVE part, the new battery only gives me a couple of hours of service. When it is 100% charged, it says that it has four hours, but after that it only lasts two hours working as usual, less than what the previous battery lasted.

I have reset the SMC and I have calibrated the battery twice.

What can be happening? Being new, it marks 88% of the battery's capacity. I'm disappointed with this. I spent a lot of nerves changing the battery for fear of spoiling the computer and the result is not what I expected.

Javier Prado - Antwort

I hate to say it, but that sounds like a defective battery :( If you bought it from iFixit, they’ll generally replace it no problem.

After installing the replacement battery from ifixit on the 2012 Macbook Pro Retina 15inch, I get an X symbol through the battery charge icon, If i plug the power cable in the laptop runs, but as soon as I disconnect the power cable the laptop shuts off. Can you help ? I tried reseting the SMC (Cont+Option+Shift+Power for 10 Sec) but either its not reseting or the battery is defective ? Not sure what to do, I installed the replacement battery exactly as the instructions stated. Please help.

marekjavorek - Antwort

This can sometimes happen if the battery was discharged to very low levels; try leaving it plugged in for a few minutes and see if the problem goes away on its own. If not, the battery may not be connected properly—try re-seating the battery connector and make sure there’s no dust or debris in the socket. If none of that works, you most likely have a defective battery. Hope this helps!

Jeff Suovanen -

Just wanted to add a comment of thanks to both the creator of this walkthrough but also the commenters above who talked about using wire/fishing line/etc. to remove the batteries. I used this method and saved a considerable amount of time and it saved me from having to disassemble the laptop.

Due to the complexity of the device and number of components, I was really concerned about being able to put everything back together exactly right. Yes, even with the walkthrough. So this gave me some considerable peace of mind.
