Use this guide to replace the upper case.

    • 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.

  1. Wedge your fingers between the upper case and the lower case.
    • Wedge your fingers between the upper case and the lower case.

    • Gently pull the lower case away from the upper case.

    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

    • The lower case is connected to the upper case at the center, with two plastic clips.

    • During reassembly, gently push down the center of the lower case to reattach the two plastic clips.

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

    • Remove the following screws securing the battery connector board to the logic board:

      • Two 2.8 mm T6 Torx screws

      • One 7.0 mm T6 Torx shouldered screw

    • Use tweezers to remove the small plastic cover located near the bottom right of the battery connector board.

    • Remove the wide head 6.4 mm T6 Torx screw securing the battery connector to the logic board assembly.

    • 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.

    • Do not fold the board completely over, or crease the cables, as this may damage the battery.

    • Grasp the Interposer with tweezers.

      • An interposer is the name for an interface that links one electrical connection to another. In this repair, it is the board connecting the battery to logic board.

    • 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.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the right side of the I/O board data cable connector up off its socket on the I/O board.

    • When prying the I/O board data cable connector from its socket, make sure to pry the connector itself and not the socket. Prying the socket may cause irreversible damage to the I/O board.

    • Wedge the flat end of a spudger beneath the left side of the I/O board data cable connector.

    • Gently twist the spudger to disconnect the I/O board data cable connector from its socket on the logic board.

    • Lift and remove the I/O board data cable from the MacBook Pro.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the SSD cable connector up from its socket on the logic board.

    • Move the SSD cable connector out of the way.

    • Wedge the flat end of a spudger beneath the right speaker cable connector.

    • Gently pry the right speaker cable connector up off from its socket on the logic board.

    • Be sure you are prying up on the connector, not the socket itself.

    • Remove the following screws securing the right speaker to the upper case:

      • One 6.8 mm T5 Torx screw

      • Two 6.3 mm T5 Torx screws

    • The corner screw may be covered with a foam pad. If so, use your tweezers to peel it up and remove it.

    • Lift and remove the right speaker out of the upper case.

    • If necessary, de-route the right speaker cable from its channel in the upper case.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the headphone jack cable connector straight up off its socket on the logic board.

    • Gently bend the headphone jack cable to 90° up from the logic board.

    • Bending the headphone jack cable will allow you to disconnect the left speaker cable connector without having the headphone jack cable in the way.

    • Wedge the tip of a spudger beneath the left speaker cable connector.

    • Gently pry the left speaker cable connector up off from its socket on the logic board.

    • Be sure you are prying up on the connector, not the socket itself.

    • Remove the following screws securing the left speaker to the upper case:

      • One 6.8 mm T5 Torx screw (top right)

      • Two 6.3 mm T5 Torx screws

    • The corner screw may be covered with a foam pad. If so, use your tweezers to peel it up and remove it.

    • Lift and remove the left speaker out of the upper case.

    • Use your thumb or finger to bend the plastic spring bar on the SSD tray, freeing the two clips at the front side of the device.

    • While holding the spring bar depressed, tilt the SSD assembly up out of its cavity.

    • Remove the SSD assembly from the upper case.

    • Remove three 2.2 mm T5 Torx screws from each side of the battery (six screws total).

    • The liquid adhesive remover provided in your kit can affect the antireflective coating on your MacBook Pro's display.

    • To protect your display, place a sheet of aluminum foil between the display and keyboard and leave it there while you work.

    • Now that your MacBook Pro is fully prepped, it's time to prep yourself.

    • iFixit adhesive remover contains acetone, a mild skin and eye irritant.

      • Wear eye protection when handling and applying the adhesive remover. (Eye protection is included in your kit.)

      • Do not wear contact lenses without eye protection.

      • Protective gloves are also included in your kit. If you are concerned about skin irritation, put your gloves on now.

    • Pull off the black rubber stopper from your bottle of adhesive remover.

    • Twist to loosen or remove the bottle cap before you cut the applicator tip.

      • This unseals the bottle and allows the pressure to equalize before you cut the applicator tip. If you skip this step, the adhesive remover may spray out unexpectedly when the tip is cut.

    • Use scissors to cut off the sealed tip of the applicator.

      • Cutting close to the narrow tip will give you better control so you can apply the adhesive remover in small amounts.

    • Twist and close the bottle cap securely before you proceed further.

    • Apply a few drops of adhesive remover evenly under the edge of the leftmost battery cell.

      • You don't need to use very much. The small bottle contains more than twice the amount of solvent needed to remove all the battery cells.

    • Wait 2-3 minutes for the liquid adhesive remover to penetrate underneath the battery cell before you proceed to the next step.

    • Insert the flat edge of a spudger or plastic card underneath the leftmost battery cell.

    • Run your tool along the bottom perimeter of the battery cell and lift to begin separating the adhesive.

    • Insert the spudger along the left-hand side of the leftmost battery cell.

    • Run the spudger up along the left side of the leftmost battery cell.

    • Slightly pry the leftmost battery cell to release it from the adhesive.

    • Repeat the above steps to separate the adjacent battery cell from its adhesive:

      • Apply a few drops of liquid adhesive remover under the battery cell.

      • Wait 2-3 minutes for the adhesive remover to penetrate and soften the adhesive.

      • Carefully wedge a spudger or plastic card inwards, being careful to not damage the battery, and separate the battery cell from the adhesive securing it to your MacBook Pro.

    • Insert the flat end of a spudger underneath the larger leftmost battery cell.

    • Carefully wedge the spudger inwards, being careful to not damage the battery cells.

    • Pry the larger leftmost battery cell up off the upper case.

    • Grasp the battery cells and gently move (but do not remove) them from their recess in the upper case.

    • Leave the battery cells resting on top of the upper case as shown in the third picture.

    • Switch sides and repeat the above procedure for the two battery cells on the right-hand side of the MacBook Pro.

      • Remember to add a small amount of liquid adhesive remover under each battery cell, and wait 2-3 minutes for it to penetrate before prying up the cell.

      • Be careful not to puncture or otherwise damage the battery cells.

    • Lift the battery as a whole up out of the upper case, and remove the battery.

    • Before installing a new battery, remove all the old adhesive from the MacBook Pro's case.

      • With a little luck, you can slowly pull out each strip of adhesive with your fingers.

      • Otherwise, soak each section of adhesive with a bit of adhesive remover for 2-3 minutes, and then scrape it out with an opening pick or one of the other tools in your kit. This can take quite a bit of work, so be patient.

      • Mop up any remaining adhesive remover and give your MacBook Pro a few minutes to air dry.

    • The replacement battery included in your iFixit kit comes with adhesive pre-installed. Test the battery's fit and alignment carefully before peeling off the film covering the adhesive, and then press each cell firmly into place. If any additional films/liners are present that weren't on your original battery, remove them now.

    • Calibrate your newly installed battery: charge it to 100%, and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. 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 Pro's SMC.

    • Use the tip of a spudger to push the edges of the I/O board connector straight out of its socket on the logic board.

    • It is recommended to carefully push on both sides of the connector to "walk" it out of its socket.

    • Use the tip of a spudger to push the iSight camera cable connector straight away from its socket on the logic board.

    • Carefully lift the logic board assembly from its left side and work it out of the upper case, minding any cables and the I/O ports that may get caught during removal.

    • Pull the right I/O port side of the logic board away from the side of the upper case and remove the logic board assembly.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry and disconnect the three antenna cable connectors from the AirPort board.

    • The three cables are coded with black sleeves of different lengths. During reassembly:

      • Connect the long-sleeved cable to the center socket.

      • The short-sleeved cable connects next to the screw.

      • The remaining cable has no sleeve, and connects in the last empty socket, next to the fan.

    • Remove the following two screws securing the I/O board to the upper case:

      • One 3.53 mm T5 Torx screw

      • One 4.89 mm T8 Torx standoff screw

    • Carefully pull and remove the I/O board away from its recess in the upper case.

    • Remove the two 3.4 mm T5 Torx screws securing the headphone jack to the upper case.

    • Lift and remove the headphone jack out of the upper case.

    • Use a pair of tweezers to lift the rubber hinge covers up off the right and left display hinges.

    • Remove the 3.2 mm T5 Torx screws (one on each side) securing the aluminum hinge brackets to the upper case.

    • Use a pair of tweezers to lift aluminum hinge brackets off the right and left display hinges.

    • Remove the four inner 5.3 mm T8 Torx screws (two on each side) securing the display to the upper case.

    • Open the MacBook Pro approximately 110 degrees, and place it sideways on the table, as shown.

    • While holding the display and upper case together with your left hand, remove the remaining T8 Torx screw from the lower display bracket.

    • Be sure to hold the display and upper case together with your left hand. Failure to do so may cause the freed display/upper case to fall, potentially damaging each component.
