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

    N.B! Thank you very much all you here on iFixit! Some IMPORTANT notes. Be very careful BEFORE prying the connectors up and down. They are very fragile and the picture could actually be seen as showing a bending loading in their weakest direction, AROUND its slender axis. The connector is slender and inserted on the logic board, so the gentle "walking" up and down should be done ALONG their slender direction and WITHOUT touching the adjacent connectors. If bending is done around its axis the soldering comes apart and the cable is done and gone. Just happened. These flat cables are one of the weakest design spots in my experience. They are a major time, money and geist consuming reason for malfunction like Wi-Fi connection problems, HDD, SSD not found internally but externally from USB issues et al being found on different forums. Thanks again and again.

  2. Carefully pull the camera cable out of its socket on the logic board.
    • Carefully pull the camera cable out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Pull the cable parallel to the face of the logic board. Pulling it upward may damage the logic board or the cable itself.

    I ripped the camera cable where can I buy a new one

    Be very careful at step 6!

    I had the same problem with the model "Late 2011" and I doubt to step 6 because the camera cabel connector was plugged very tight in the board-socket. So I cannot believe it is so easy to unplug the connector.

    I bought a new camera cable on eBay.

    Be extremely careful on step 6 with late 2011 model unibody macbooks! The cable is connected very tightly to the board and has a great chance of ripping if you just pull the cable.

    Walk the cable out with a spudger!!! The Retina 2012 guide has this and this was so easy using the tool.

  3. Carefully move the AirPort/Bluetooth ribbon cable out of the way as you peel the camera cable off the adhesive securing it to the subwoofer and the AirPort/Bluetooth bracket. De-route the camera cable out from under the retaining finger molded into the AirPort/Bluetooth bracket.

    What adhesive is suitable for reattaching the foam tape and wires that were removed from their normal routing?

    David Warshowsky - Antwoord

    I want to know that too!

    Take a few phone close-ups of this corner of your system prior to disassembly. Extra photos really help during reassembly.

    I didn’t use any extra adhesive here during reassembly. The camera cable fits snuggly between the subwoofer module and the DVD drive. Apple’s adhesive here is really just overkill.

    Can someone explain me what this "antenna cable" is for? I changed my Topcase and this antenna did break during the procedure =(.

    The problem is i can't find this cable anywhere to buy and i don't even know his function. WIFI and Bluetooth are working just fine.

    Can someone please help me?

    Same here, I was removing the display and once i put it back on the three little antenna cables fall off. Any idea how to replace it or find it?

    Hector Torres -

    Those are the WiFi antennae..

    auadix -

    When I was repairing the hinge of my laptop two of the antenna cable connectors came off the ends of the antenna wires. Can someone confirm what these are called and the size so I can source replacements? I believe they may be called ’Micro RF Coax Connector’ but I am not sure what size I need. For the record the wifi is actually still working but may be a bit slower than normal. Thanks for your help.

  6. Using the method described in the last step, disconnect the remaining three antenna connectors. De-route their cables from the slots cut in the AirPort/Bluetooth bracket.

    What are these? Like in order? I broke the middle one and am trying to find a replacement. The mac actually functions quite normally, currently using it to type this ahaha, anyways, only difference I've noticed is that the speaker sounds a bit weird/off. Internet is fine, display is fine, everything is fine at the moment besides the speaker. And in case you're wondering how exactly broken it is, its not connected to begin with since it ripped ahahaa...

    Same issue here, with the first from the top. I wonder if i will have some kind of issue in future.

    I found re-attaching these antennae connectors the trickiest bit by far as they appear very delicate and seating them correctly was fiddly. In the end lighting them from the side with a small torch helped to check their position before gently pushing them down. The first one made a clicking sound as it connected, the other two went on silently. MBP wifi working perfectly now. I’m fairly sure that was at least £100 of labour had I taken it in for repair so thanks ifixit for saving me money and for the warm glow of accomplishment!

    Where can i buy that very same set of antennas, I’ve broken what seems to be the bluetooth one, even tough my Mac was already used when i bought it,(and that cable did not seem to came from the same spot has the other 3 “small ones”) the screen wobbled a Little bit so there i tried to fix it myself, now i have no wobble, but no Bluetooth though :(

  7. Remove the following five screws:
    • Remove the following five screws:

    • Two 10.3 mm Phillips screws

    • Two 3.1 mm Phillips screws

    • One 5 mm Phillips screw

    The two screws marked in orange are not present in my early 2011 macbook pro

    Should be worth noting that the black tape/wire grommet on the right red screw is flimsy. When overtightened, it can tear.

    Muss der Antennenkontakt in der Gehäuseecke mit dem Rahmen verlötet sein? Bei mir ist diese Verbindung sehr locker
