Inleiding

Use this guide to replace the AirPort board.

    • 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

    Please put an arrow on the picture of the bottom to show where the clips are. NOT clear. The black gizmos in the middle??

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

    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.

    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.

Hello

Is this showing how to upgrade a MBP min2012 from non-retina to retina display?

acruznet88 - Antwoord

Hi, I've seen this Airport board teardown and the Early 2015 one. I think that Airport board is the same and I would like to replace my board with the Early 2015 one. Can you tell me if is it possible? Can be driver issues? Mac OS version issues? Thank you

luca.lavorato11 - Antwoord

Thanks for this. I just used this to upgrade my Late 2012 to AC.

Cameron Gary - Antwoord

Hi Gary, so are you saying that you found a new Airport card that is AC for this “N” stock version ? If so, could you share a link to it?

Thanks!

Michael

Michael -

Hi, I replaced the card. Even though I was not able to disconnect the battery, because some of the screws there are not screwable anymore after replacing the battery a couple of years ago…

But it worked. Wifi is working fine. But my main problem was that the Bluetooth did not work. The Computer did not even recognize that there is bluetooth hardware anymore, it says Bluetooth: not available.

Unfortunately this problems stays with the new card.

Might there be a falty wiring somewhere else? does anybody has another suggestion to try?

Thanks.
