    • Using the flat end of a spudger, pry the subwoofer connector straight up off the logic board.

    • On some models, the subwoofer connector is soldered to the logic board and will break if you pry it off. If you need to replace the speaker/subwoofer, you can pull back the foam padding on the connector and remove the red and black wires to disconnect. You will need to reinsert the wires from the new speaker to reconnect.

    • If you are only removing the optical drive and not replacing the speaker/subwoofer, you do not need to disconnect this connector.

Can I put a speaker A1278 a macbook pro 13 mid-2012?

All speakers A1278 model work in any model of Macbook Pro A1278, regardless of the year?

I have good sound again, thanks.

2008 MacBook (aluminum).

The hardest part was starting the optical drives hold down screws, my jewelers screwdriver maginetic tip is weak.

Total time was about a half hour.

If all you have are Phillips screwdrivers, be very careful with the screws at the split of the bottom case and all of the internal ones. You may have to drop to a Phillips #000 if you don’t have a JIS #00, which appears to be the correct tool for them, based on the actual fit of the bits in my (iFixit) set.

Hi guys, does anyone know if the subwoofer spare part is the same for the model A1278 from late 2008 and 2009 and so on? thanks in advance

I bought the speakers in Ali express for less than 9 € and my late 2008 MacBook unibody sounds well again. Thanks for your help.
