Inleiding

Use this guide to replace the battery.

Note: 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.

    • 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

    Pulling the fan cable out was terrifying but you actually just pull on the cable itself. No way to get any leverage at the connector to dislodge it. Did come out easily but like I said, scared me!

    Draai de schroefjes voorzichtig los en leg ze op een stabiele plek neer en let erop dat de schroefje een verschillende lengte hebben.

    I thought I could replace my 256 Gb SSD with 512? regards

    Do you have good Test Point Voltages? It appears there are silver colored Test points on the I/O Board. I am working on a water spill and trying to troubleshoot if both the I/O board and the Logic need replaced.

    It's probably not necessary but may be a little safer to completely discharge the old battery before replacing it.

    Larry Smith - Antwoord

    tell a model that was not inferior to the speed of the one in the laptop.

    Thank you

    P5 pentalobe screwdrivers are too big! The correct size for these screws are p4 pentalobe. P5 pentalobe was just able, with difficulty, to turn some of the screws. If the screws were at all tight, my p5 was unable to get them out, and started to strip the screws. A p4 screwdriver fit better and removed the screws with ease. (I was using high quality Wiha brand screwdrivers.)

    William Skinner - Antwoord

    Very simple installation. The screwdriver heads were exactly what we’re needed, one head for the outside case screws, the other for the screws holding the battery in place. The computer started right up. Now to see how the battery holds up, but I have a good feeling about this!

    My P5 and the T5 worked perfectly with my early 2015 Air 13”! And it is super fast! Thank you iFixit!

    Pennny Beach - Antwoord

    The supplied kit and instructions worked perfectly!

    Nikolay Andreev - Antwoord

    Comments that the P5 pentalobe are too large are absolutely spot-on. There is no way the P5 pentalobe bit I have will work with the MacBook Air without destroying the screws. Hard target search for P4 pentalobe bit in progress…..

    Bonjour j’aimerais changer mon SSD de 128 Go pour en mettre un de 512 Go. Je ne sais pas ce qu’il faut prendre car il faut qu’il soit compatible avec le macbook air A1466. J’aurais vu un Samsung Evo 970 500 Go mais si je ne me trompe pas, il faut un adaptateur.

    Merci pour votre aide.

    chicco33 - Antwoord

    oui, vous aurez besoin d’un adaptateur, pour completez le changement.

    The tool kit should include tweezers for re-inserting the battery connector.

    P5 pentalobe worked perfectly for me. Instructions were spot-on. Antenna connections were a bit fiddly to refit but got them in ok.

    michaelquinnell - Antwoord

    Maybe the problem some are experiencing is that the designations are confusing (blame Apple rather than iFixit). the P2 is also known as PL1. The P5 is also known as PL4. The P6 is also known as PL5. So it is possible to mistake the P6 (PL5) for the P5 (PL4), meaning it (P6-PL5) will be too big, while the P5 (PL4) will be just right. Sort of a 3 Bears explanation, but it is very confusing.

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

    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

    There is a nub on the inside of the case which is attached to the battery. When you try to pull it open, it appears to be attached to the plastic casing of the battery, which sometimes splits. I gently unhooked the nub from the battery before removing the case fully. This seems to happen if the battery has suffered some drop damage (plastic parts broken around screws and parts of plastic frame split). Just an FYI in case your lower case doesn't pull away easily.

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

    @&?! - pulled plastic tab on new battery to line up with logic board pins look to be coming out of male connector? Argh?!

    James Bowkett - Antwoord

    Can expect anyone from ifixit to get back to me?

    James Bowkett - Antwoord

    Hi James,

    It may be that one of the pins did not lock in properly into the plastic housing. You can try pushing the corresponding wire into the connector housing to try to lock the pin in.

    If that does not help, please respond to my email. Thanks!

    • Remove the following five screws securing the battery to the upper case:

    • Three 6.3 mm T5 Torx screws

    • Two 2.4 mm T5 Torx screws

    When going in reverse, it's easier to do step 3 before 4.

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

    • 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.

    Two Questions and a Comment:

    1) “Allow the battery to drain overnight” - Should the computer shut down automatically (during the first drain, as well)? If not, what percentage should the battery reach before charging it to 100%?

    2) While the battery is draining, can I use the computer?

    When installing the new battery, I found it much easier to insert the battery connector before screwing in the battery.

    Paul Larkin - Antwoord

    When reinserting the battery, plug in the battery connector before screwing the battery into place. Some wiggle room is required to reconnect the batter and tweezers will help with the plugging in.

i was disconnecting the connector from the logic board .. Do i need to exchange the whole logic board ..?

okonmaya - Antwoord

This was my first experience using iFixit to buy parts, tools and use the guide. I will be coming back here from now on, this guide was great and the kit arrived on time and with everything that I needed.

Devin Whitney - Antwoord

Perfect! You guys are the coolest…..thanks for your help….again!

mfogelquist - Antwoord

That was pretty easy. Just be careful when you insert the connector into the logic board socket. You’ll have to give the wires an “S” bend, then insert the connector straight in, don’t lift on it or the socket might come off the board. As you push the connector in, use your other hand to support the socket.

Maybe it would be easier to first insert the connector while the battery is sitting a little out of position, and then second pushing the battery into position.

Excellent guide. It took all of 15 minutes start to finish, including cleaning out the dust inside my MBA. Thanks!

Dave Gesell - Antwoord

I was a bit nervous before replacing the battery on my own, but following this guide made it so easy. I finished it in 12 minutes including cleaning the interior. Thank you!!

Zsolt Repasy - Antwoord

Great instructions. Everything seems to be working fine…minor problem was that I had to do SMC-reset because the Battery indicator showed red even though the battery was charged "100%” and OS X informed “Battery is empty and MacBook Air has to shut down”…but the problem was solved with SMC-reset. Have been using MacBook Air Middle 2013 since then (several weeks) with the new battery and everything seems to be working great. Battery was calibrated accordingly before the “red indicator 100% shut down”-thing appeared. Thank you.

Is it ok for the macbook to be disconnected by power during the installation process?

cybercurry - Antwoord

My MacBook Air Model A1466 2013 has label on the back which says 14.85 V. You replacement battery is rated at 7.6 V. Is this the correct battery?

cybercurry - Antwoord

Hi cybercurry,

Yes, this is the correct battery for your MacBook Air. The laptop’s power input is rated at 14.85V but apparently the battery packs are set up for 7.6V.
