Inleiding

No sound from the right side of your MacBook Air? Use this guide to replace the right speaker.

    • Before proceeding, power down your MacBook. Close the display and lay it on a soft surface, top-side down.

    • Use a P5 Pentalobe driver to remove ten screws securing the lower case, of the following lengths:

    • Two 9 mm screws

    • Eight 2.6 mm screws

    • Grab the clear plastic pull tab attached to the battery connector and pull it toward the front edge of the Air to disconnect the battery from the logic board.

    • Do not lift upward on the connector as you disconnect it.

    • When handling the battery, avoid squeezing or touching the four exposed lithium polymer cells.

    • Lift the battery from its edge nearest the logic board and remove it from the upper case.

    • When installing the new battery, if there is a thin plastic film on your replacement battery, do not attempt to remove it. It is glued on and protects the battery pack while it is inside the MacBook.

    • If you're installing a new battery, you should calibrate it after installation:

    • Charge it to 100%, and then keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Then, unplug and use it normally to drain the battery. When you see the low battery warning, save your work, and keep your laptop on until it goes to sleep due to low battery. Wait at least 5 hours, then charge your laptop uninterrupted to 100%.

    • If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new battery, you may need to reset your MacBook's SMC.

    • Pry up from beneath the wires.

When you unhook the connector to the speaker, do not put the spudger too far under and snap off the holder from the logic board like I did.

I am guessing, put I assume you just get the edge right next to the wires.

This should be explained better.

Thanks anyway.

Hello, thank you for sharing this guide! I have managed to replace the left speaker of my MacBook but it seems that the left speaker sounds different than the right speaker. Is that expected or is my second-hand speaker broken?

The left speaker seems to be more bass-heavy and muffled.
