    • Wedge your fingers between the display and the lower case and pull upward to pop the lower case off the Air.

    • In this step you will disconnect the battery to help avoid shorting out any components during service.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry both short sides of the battery connector upward to disconnect it from its socket on the logic board.

    • Bend the battery cable slightly away from the logic board so the connector will not accidentally bend back and make contact with its socket.

    • Remove the single 2.9 mm T5 Torx screw securing the SSD to the logic board.

    • Lift the free end of the SSD just enough to get a good hold of it.

    • Do not excessively lift the end of the SSD.

    • Pull the drive straight out of its socket and remove it from the logic board.

    • When reinstalling the SSD, be sure it is properly seated before reinstalling its retaining screw.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Is it possible to replace a 128 GB SSD with a 256 GB SSD without any problems?

Anyone knows if you can replace the msata ssd or if it is proprietary of apple?

I wonder if someone can help me - I completed the installation and rebooted from a clone of the original drive on an external USB disk. I tried to clone that back onto the new SSD but that failed and now the new SSD does not appear on the desktop and does not appear in Disk Utility. Its not being recognised when I boot up. Do you have any ideas how I can get it to reappear - I assume the format is lost so is there a way to reformat?

Is this procedure the same as it would be for the Early 2014 11.6" MacBook Air?
