OMG! It is entirely possible to both remove and replace the MagSafe Connector without removing the logic board, making this 5 or 6 steps instead of 33!!
Once you remove the lower case (and disconnect the battery if you feel you must—I’ve been inside my MacBook a dozen times and no longer find that necessary, although it probably is safer to disconnect it), you can skip skip straight to Step 28 and remove the display data cable. Move that out of way and remove the two screws securing the MagSafe Connector.
Now, with a little finesse you can lift the MagSafe board and slide its connector out of the logic board. I nudged it out a bit with a screwdriver from the part that was visible (on the other side of the logic board) and gently pulled the five wires and it slid right out. It didn’t put any stress on the wires at all.
To give myself some wiggle room I also removed:
one screw from step 30 (5.2 mm Raised Head T5 Torx screw)
two screws from step 16 (4.4 mm T5 Torx screw and 5.0 mm T5 Torx screw with 2 mm collar)
DO NOT PRY!
I submitted some edits, but I’m not sure if or when they’ll show up.
The current description is misleading. There is a flexible flap that covers the ZIF socket, which you simply need to hold out of the way. On the ZIF socket there is a hard plastic retaining bar (not a ‘flap’) which you need to click up to release the ribbon cable. The cable should pop out once that is opened. You do NOT need a spudger to remove the cable. If it doesn’t pop out, simply lift it out by pulling up on the retaining flap.
I think some people are leaving the bar closed and trying to pry the cable out, which is possible but a very bad idea. No prying is required at all.
