MacBook Pro 15" Touch Bar Late 2016 Battery Replacement

3 Stunden


Mein Problem

Battery was growing and lifting the screen off the keyboard when closed.

Meine Reparatur

First off.... It was not a NEGATIVE experience.... but I damaged my MAC in the process and I feel there could be some additions to the guide.

Step 40:

I pulled the left speaker connector ( the smaller of the two) off the PCB trying to " TWIST AND PRY" the cable off it.

I think you need either add a fourth image to show it pulling STRAIGHT UP or add a separate step just for that smaller left speaker connector.

Also, I would delete the word TWIST and add a disclaimer to be gentle with that one.



Step 49:

I left ONE ribbon cable tucked under the logic board when reinstalling. Not cool..ha.

I would give the user a total number of cables to account for when reinstalling...perhaps with them all listed by name or images, before continuing with the assembly.


Step 63:

I think I cracked my screen pushing down too hard to scrape off the old adhesive tape. The screen is fine and still looks great.... but now there's a crack horizontally through the middle. I believe its where the edge of the "absorbent towel" I used was.

I did not catch the fact the guide was referring to the super-thin paper towel that was included. I thought it just meant an "absorbent towel" so I put a washcloth under there. It was too thick I believe.

I would change the text to read... "Optionally, you may also lay the included absorbent paper towel directly underneath..."

...yes...I realize there was a link NOW... but it was not OBVIOUS when I was in knee-deep into the repair. :)

  • I would also consider having the user open the laptop over the edge of a table to have the screen hang off the edge so that they're not pushing down on it as they try to scape the adhesive strips off the case.

Mein Rat

see " the Repair" section for advice for this repair..........
