On my macbook Pro 2015 it has an extra Square on the heatsink to cover the graphics card. So the Pictures does not look right on this guide. I would share my pictures but it’s not possible in the comments.

Hey guys when I refreshed the thermal paste on my 2015 15” (top spec) mbp, I noticed four little metallic sponges in that area, one of those came off… I still have it, how critical is it? Should I replace it? If so are there any guides?

Many thanks
