Inleiding

Use this guide to replace the right fan.

    • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Two 2.3 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Eight 3.0 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your device.

    If don’t have one of those neat project mats, then you can use small pieces of flattened blu-tack to hold the screws. If you arrange them in the shape of your mac book cover, and put the screws down methodically, you can get a one-to-one mapping of the screws to the correct screw holes.

    Or you can use an ice tray where you put the screws and the parts in separate bays in the same order as they come in the instructions.

    On my model A1425 these were all 1.2mm P5 screws. They all looked the same to me.

    This is great! I used a small magnetic white board, and wrote on it to identify the parts as I went. This whole process, from the fast shipment to the great instructions to the complete, high quality, tool kit has been great. I’m typing this comment on my resurrected laptop. Thank you! Sue

    • Remove the plastic cover adhered to the battery contact board.

    This plastic cover wasn’t included with the new battery so I placed the original one back in. Was it supposed to go back in? This detail wasn’t clear since the original cover didn’t fit exactly over the newer battery connector. Plus any stickiness of adhesive that may have been there was gone.

    Hi, any issues with you computer after a year? I didn’t put mine back in either…

    Kevin, I forgot to place mine back in! How is your laptop doing without it?

    Dominic Radcliffe - Antwoord

    My “on button” isn't working. I was wondering can I just disconnect the battery like this, and plug it in to turn it on? Which is shown possible on earlier models on YouTube.

    Is it ok if I did put the plastic cover back in?

    I lost this screw! How important is it? Will it be okay with just the 3 previously removed screws?

    Check your speakers for the screws. The magnet for the speakers is strong enough to stick to them.

  8. Carefully lift the battery connector board up off the logic board. It is recommended to bend the battery cables just slightly, to keep the board suspended up above the logic board and out of the way.

    • Lift the Interposer off the logic board and remove it.

    • Removing this board will ensure that the battery remains disconnected throughout your repair, preventing your computer from accidentally powering on. It's also a good idea to take it out so it doesn't fall out unexpectedly.

    WHy to remove battery contact board? Replace can happen without it also, right.

    How can I remove interposer I m not able to remove it

    Raunak - Antwoord

    you must lift it absolutely vertically, or it fouls against the locator pin in the corner- you can easily get the impression that it won’t come over the end of this pin- almost like it’s rivetted in. it isn’t. get a good grip on it with the tweezers in the centre hole & one of the sides, & lift it STRAIGHT up.

    What happens if the Battery Contact Board fails?

    racoon2956 - Antwoord

    Be extra careful when tightening down on the interposer. When I powered on upon completion, the battery was not connected. When I opened it back up, I saw that one of the little metal nubs holding the interposer in place had snapped off (the one on the side, not the corner). I was able to carefully tighten the wide head screw back in, watching the alignment, and the battery was successfully recognized. Hopefully the connection holds up.

    Doug Krieger - Antwoord

    So something similar happened to me. One the the metal alignment nubs snapped off, and when I went to screw down the interposer it started emitting a burning smell. Do you guys think I fried the board? There doesn’t look to be any visual damage but the computer wont turn on.

    Where can I buy a replacement interposer? I may have lost mine in the process of replacing the battery.

    juan.su - Antwoord

    I bought an interposer on amazon

    Kris K - Antwoord

    I think I snapped off the nub as well, and the battery is not recognized . Replacing the interposer did not help, or trying to align it right. will have to try to replace the battery next.

    Kris K - Antwoord

    I really dont understand why to unplug so many parts if the SSD can be easily removed without all this effort. its not even connected to the battery..

    Gabriel Beolchi - Antwoord

    I was reassembling and put the interposer back and when the battery contact board touched the interposer, there was a little spark. Should I be worried?

    • Lift and remove the heat sink up off the logic board assembly.

    • When reinstalling the heat sink, be sure to apply a new layer of thermal paste. If you have never applied thermal paste before, we have a guide that makes it easy.

    Hey! You skipped a step!

    What about the cable (don't know what it does) that runs right across the fan, interfering with pulling the fan out.

    It's still in place in Step 14, but here in Step 15 it's magically removed itself, and can be seen resting luxuriously on top of the Airport card.

    How do we get that outta there?

    Victor Gavenda - Antwoord

    Still no change? I mean that cable doesn’t necessarily have to come off. Just a little irritating and in the way for the reinstall

    Ivan Yong - Antwoord

    Like @victorgav mention, Just need a step before this one, which is to remove the cable that goes across the top of the fan.

    David Borjas - Antwoord

    Thanks for bringing this up! It looks like the guide was missing the iSight cable disconnection steps. I’ve added the missing steps.
