Inleiding

Gebruik deze handleiding om de vastgelijmde batterij van je MacBook Pro op veilige wijze te verwijderen met behulp van een iFixit-batterijvervangingskit. De lijmverwijderaar in je kit zal de lijm die de batterij aan de behuizing bevestigt oplossen, waardoor je deze makkelijker kunt verwijderen.

Apple riep voor dit model de batterijen terug in juni 2019—dus voordat je je batterij vervangt, kun je checken of je in aanmerking komt voor een gratis vervanging door Apple.

iFixit-lijmverwijderaar is licht ontvlambaar. Voer deze procedure dus uit in een goed geventileerde ruimte. Rook niet tijdens het proces en werk niet in de buurt van een open vuur.

Om het risico op schade te minimaliseren, schakel je je MacBook uit en laat je je batterij volledig ontladen voordat je deze procedure start. Een geladen lithium-ion batterij kan een gevaarlijke en oncontroleerbare brand veroorzaken als deze per ongeluk wordt doorboord. Neem, als je batterij gezwollen is, de juiste voorzorgsmaatregelen.

Let op: de vloeistof die je gebruikt om de lijm onder de batterij te verzwakken, zal je speakers aantasten als deze in aanraking komt met de plastic speakerbehuizing. Deze handleiding laat je daarom ook zien hoe je de speakers verwijdert voordat je de batterij verwijdert. Het verwijderen van de speakers vereist ook het verwijderen van een aantal andere onderdelen, waaronder het logic board.

    • Verwijder de volgende P5-pentalobe schroeven die de onderste behuizing aan de MacBook Pro bevestigen:

    • Acht 3.1 mm lange schroeven

    • Twee 2.3 mm lange schroeven

    The number of screws listed here is wrong on my model. I had four of the smaller size.

    Just to add to my comment above (I can't edit it because it's anonymous), my MacBook Pro is a mid-2015 15in model 2.8GHz (A1398; EMC2881). For the bottom case it uses six 3.1mm screws, and four 2.3mm screws at the clutch/hinge side of the MacBook Pro. I tried using a 3.1mm screw at the clutch/hinge end, as described in the main article, and they don't fit. It has to be four 2.3mm screws.

    The instructions below have you basically taking ALL of the guts out of case. I’ve been doing my own apple repairs since before ifixit was a thing and this one is a handful. My battery was swelling and I wanted to remove it before it burst or bent the case so I took it out without having a replacement and it occurs to me that aside from using the solvent (liquid) to remove the adhesive, you could probably do this only taking the trackpad ribbon out. I have mine reassembled now and will research the best battery to buy but I think installation will take about 5 minutes. See if you can slip a plastic gift card under the battery and wag/saw the adhesive out without the solvent before you go through all of this. It might work. Note, don’t bend or put too much stress on the battery and certainly don’t puncture it…

    As we are only replacing the battery, you can safely skip steps 6-26 and 28-48, no need to disassemble the computer to pull out the battery. Use nail polisher remover I was able to pull a super bloated battery out, without disassembling my MacBook.

    John Sikking -

    I’m having a problem trying to get the screws off. I have a set of pentalobe screwdriver set. I found one screwdriver that fits perfectly on one set of screws, but I am unable to unscrew it. I tried using some force pushing the screwdriver into the screw, but nothing happens. Any suggestions?

    henry_k_wong - Antwoord

    All the screws on mine are the same length for some reason.

    ccfman2004 - Antwoord

    I would recommend the first step is: Run the battery down to ZERO before doing any next step. This reduces risk to you, people nearby, to the MBP and greatly reduces the risk of fire. Step 2 should be: Double-check that the battery is at zero.

    I like others listed below and on YouTube, disagree with these full tear down 70+ steps being the only focus. I get that I have to be careful not to get the acetone solvent near the speakers. I skipped 25+ steps by: tilting the MBP away from the speakers and using very little acetone solvent. More pressure with the plastic cards and only a few drops of solvent. While giving the full set of instructions is fine it should be very clear that you can (at the user’s own risk) do this.

    Kenneth Schleede - Antwoord

    As above—I consider full disassembly to be far riskier to fragile cables and connectors than the risk for solvent spillage. I did steps 1-5 and 46-74. No issues. I HIGHLY recommend the iFixit magnetic Project Mat. It’s a white marker board surface gridded into squares and invaluable for labeling part sizes/steps in disassembly.

    philtrit - Antwoord

    As above too. I benefitted from the advice. From step 51 onwards, I found a easier way using tip from China battery seller. Use a 2” width plastic scraper/plastic paint scraper to poke under the battery. Use moderate strength to poke and avoid rough handling of the battery so as not to puncture it. There is no need to pry the battery to avoid stressing it, just use a firm poking action under the battery and the double sided tape adhesive will yield. After 5 min of such poking, the entire battery pack can be removed without the hassle of pouring the adhesive remover from step 51 onwards. Get a scraper with a stronger handle so that it is more comfortable to poke.

    Heads up as you go…we (husband/wife team) had a notebook that when screws/covers were removed, we marked the step # and actually taped the screws into the notebook noted by the step number. This was very helpful on reassembly and we knew we would be using the exact screw into the original screw hole.

    Ann Brainard - Antwoord

    After replacing the batteries myself, I wouldn’t even consider doing it again. Not that it’s difficult to do—that’s not the issue. The issue is aftermarket batteries. I’ve been using notebooks for well over 30 years, and never had satisfaction with aftermarket batteries.

    Modern lithium batteries are an amazing technological feat, but a dangerous one. So even putting aside that I’ve never found any aftermarket batteries with quality anywhere near original, I learned “cheap” aftermarket lithium batteries are downright dangerous.

    After doing research into what’s involved with manufacturing lithium batteries, I know there are so many corners to cut, you’ll end up with junk regardless of what you pay.

    A week after replacing my batteries with those from iFixit, they showed clear signs of failure. Thank goodness iFixit refunded my money.

    After having Apple replace my batteries, everything is back to like-new. For my $199, I got not only excellent batteries, but a new keyboard and trackpad as well. That’s it’s done!!!

    AnnoniMoose - Antwoord

    I found an Apple Support link that said MBP battery replacement was $199, but the 2 Apple Stores near my house would not provide any appointments. Instead, I scheduled an appointment with and “Apple Authorized Service Provider” & that repair center quoted about $750 to replace the battery.

    I refused, went home, & opened a chat with Apple Support.

    After a lengthy & painful chat session where the Apple tech didn’t want to provide a battery replacement quote (he feared other issues with the MBPr), he finally gave me an Apple price of just under $650 to replace the battery.

    Did you go into an Apple store, or mail it in? I’m struggling to reconcile a price of $199 to get a battery + keyboard + trackpad against what I was just quoted 2 weeks ago. The new track pad & keyboard might have been due to repair tech error. i.e. they trashed those repairing your batter & had to toss them in.

    Additionally, this is an “opportunity” to clean the cooling fans - and any other obvious dust magnets - with a can of compressed air. On the laptop I worked on, the cooling fans had sufficient dust to not “spin” freely - showing signs of “drag”. After blasting each cooling fan with compressed air (including from the exhaust vent side, as hitting the fins alone wasn’t adequate), they both spin freely now. No obvious signs of battery swelling on mine, but lack of adequate airflow could have been a factor with original battery aging/failure.

    Zathras - Antwoord

    Good opportunity to give a good clean out. Air duster and small clean paint brush on plastic surfaces to clean up essential vents and fans. You can load fan monitor and control software to see what your your system is doing and how it improves with a clean up.

    jamiegan835 - Antwoord

    The trick to putting it back on is to guide your fingers to the same level as the clips, and then when you put the case down move your hand from the left side of the case to the right side of the case; applying pressure when you reach the area where the clips are.

    pay attention that the macbook in this picture is presented the “wrong side”: if you accidentally remove the tape covering the trackpad cable and thereby also take the trackpad cable out of the zif-socket, your keyboard and trackpad won’t work anymore. putting the trackpad cable back into the (tiny) socket will fix the issue though.

    Robin Razzell - Antwoord

    When you install the new battery, it may look like the holes in the connector need to be slid on to the connector toward the rear of the mac. I tried bending the cable to make it work. This could damage the cables. You really need only push directly downward on the connector, as you pulled up on it to remove it initially. It will pop into place with a little pressure, just make sure it's lined up properly.

    Jeffrey Andrews - Antwoord

    I had to use quite a lot of pressure to make the connector on my new battery pop all the way down. I thought it was down already when it was only half way, as I was afraid to use too much force. Maybe it varies between different battery brands, but just make sure that the connector should go all the way down and not have a gap between the two parts.

    • Gebruik een spudger of een pincet om de drie AirPort-antennekabels in een rechte beweging uit hun contacten op het AirPort-bord omhoog te duwen. Buig ze vervolgens omhoog en uit de weg.

    • De aansluitpunten van de kabels zijn erg fragiel en kwetsbaar. Wees voorzichtig en zorg dat je enkel de aansluiting omhoog duwt en niet het contact of de kabel zelf.

    • Om de kabels weer aan te sluiten, positioneer je de aansluiting voorzichtig over het contact en druk je deze vervolgens stevig in het contact met het platte deel van je spudger.

    When reconnecting these tiny wires, use one hand to guide and align the connector by holding the wire and the other hand to press them down with a flat end of a spudger. Spent 10 minutes figuring it out and connecting the first one, then only a few seconds on both of the remaining connectors :)

    If you try to do this with one hand, it’s extremely easy to move them out of the alignment while pressing them down.

    Aivar Kavshevich - Antwoord

    I think there is a better way - where you disconnect the wifi card using the black screw in middle of wire 2 and 3 first and then untie these connectors. I pryed away the connectors but the sockets on the card were all damaged during the process. Ended up having to get a replacement card before reassembly could be completed. So again there are 2 components - connectors which are being pryed away and really fine and delicate socket. Very easy to damage them. Better to take the card off and delicately peel these connectors off. I would not recommend using these pry sticks mentioned here for that.

    Alex DeLeon - Antwoord

    This is one of those skills that you get experience right after you need it.

    I learned these connectors doing RF work. They require a deft touch. Put slight downward pressure while you work to align the pair. Once you get the hang of it, you will know when they are aligned, and they will go back together with a light push and make a slight snap.

    If they don’t immediately pop together with a light push, they’re not aligned quite right. Don’t force them, they have a very limited number of make/break cycles.

    The cables should retain their bent shape well enough to show where each goes. One it too short to go too far off, and one is too long to fit to the nearest connection.

    prreitz - Antwoord

    I did not bother with the danger of removing cables or cards or logic board. I spent 30 mins removing my battery carefully, using string and CT1 multisolve which isn’t dangerous to plastic.

    i slid my string under the battery and see-saw underneath and sprayed Ct1 Multisolve underneath. I’ve now done both my macbooks. Didn’t destroy any cables or risk it. I put a few paper sheets over my logic board to cover any spray back. Simple see-saw and a palstic card, the blue spludger and the black long spluger.

    T Master. - Antwoord

    Yes, I did the full board disassembly on my 2012 macbook last year and once I finished I kind of wondered why I didn’t just work on removing the battery. Is there any real obstacle to doing so here? Can I just spend an hour or so carefully removing the battery? What’s the risk of doing that? again, is there any actual obstacle to removing the battery without pulling out the whole board assembly?

    Brian Lamb -

    You can go straight for the battery if you’re confident enough to improvise a little. Removing the board makes sense if you’re trying to protect the speakers from getting chewed up by the solvent. Otherwise, it’s faster and easier to leave the board in place.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    Agreed. Just replaced the battery on my 15” MacBook Pro 2015 and I skipped all instruction between step 6 and 46. I just unplugged the battery and removed the trackpad connection. Used some dental floss to cut through the adhesives and a card to help with carefully prying the batteries up. After the battery was removed I used some isopropanol to clean up from the old glue. Installed new battery, attached the trackpad connection ribbon and connected battery. All in all it took me less than one hour. I would not recommend removing the whole logic board just to replace the battery.

    Mackie72 -

    I’m one of those unfortunate ones that simply followed the iFixit instructions before reading the comments. On successfully reconnecting 2 of the cables and (miserably) failing with the 3rd, I realized the relevance of the comments. I decided to take a gamble and leave the 3rd connector unconnected and fired up my MacBook … strangely enough, everything works fine i.e from the comments, WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera (et al) should be affected but they are all still fully operational (maybe they’ll die with time - I hope not). I don’t like the thought of an unattached cable lying around in my Mac hence I agree with those advocating for alternatives to this step (unhinging the WiFi card as opposed to prying these cables).

    If you’re just replacing the battery, after step 5 you can skip everything else except 26-27, 34, and 50, and then continue from step 56 onwards. Instead of needing an adhesive removal, I just used a credit card to separate the battery cells from the casing they’re glued to.

    Petr Bela - Antwoord

    After step 5, I would skip 26-27, 34 and just to 46-50. You need to remove the cable from the battery, so even if you do 26-27 and 34, you'll need to do 46-50.

    I use the solvent to remove the left over glue after the battery has been removed, but have been able to separate the battery by just sliding a card between the battery and case.

    maccentric -

    I'm here to tell you that it is possible to remove and reassemble these wires, despite all the above comments making it seem almost impossible. I was planning to remove the entire card instead, but accidentally popped one of the wires when trying to get the card out. So then I just figured I might as well follow the instructions. Popping them was easy, getting them back on was a bit more tricky. Use a fine tip plier to hold the wire and place the plug in place, then press down (quite firmly!) with a spudge or something flat (I would advise against using a metal tool such as the torx driver, in case you slip and hit something). As long as the plug is directly above the connector and aligned properly, you won't break it. Use a good light source and a magnifying glass if needed. I brought my adjustable desk up to eye level so I could come really close and see what I was doing.

    • De kabels zijn aan de ventilator vastgemaakt. Je zult deze dus voorzichtig van de ventilator af moeten trekken om te voorkomen dat ze beschadigd raken.

    • Trek de kabels ook op voorzichtige wijze uit de plastic kabelgoot.

    • Bij het weer in elkaar zetten zou je gebruik moeten kunnen maken van de lijm die nog steeds op de kabel zit om de kabels weer her te bevestigen.

    Leave them attached. Remove the single screw holding the board in place and gently wiggle the airport card out (see Airport card removal instructions). Fold the card up and towards the rear of the computer. Now follow the instructions for the camera cable removal. Lift the airport card with the three leads attached and the camera cable up and fold the, to the outside of the case.

    A note about these ZIF sockets - the retaining flap is just held in place by the small amount of friction, and on reassembly they can separate. I learned to push them down with my finger when possible, or else with a flat end, carefully walking them down side by side to keep it as even as possible. If the flap separates all is not lost ! It’s quite difficult (I did almost everything in this guide with tweezers under magnifiers) but if you remove the cable first, you can get the plastic “comb” back under the pins and up into it’s original position, then replace the cable and try again.

    I recommend pushing the cable connector away with a spudger instead of using the fan to pull it away…there seems to be too much stress put on the cable using the method proposed here.

    Bill Klemme - Antwoord

    Using a spudger does help alleviate stress on the cable. I also used it to help get the cable up from being adhered to the logic board.

    Joshua McMillan - Antwoord

    Adding to the other comments, the fan is very light and has no resistance lifting out of the place it sits in.

    I carefully lifted the fan just before there was any tension on the cable.

    With the fan held in my right hand and spudger in my left, I moved the spudger under the fan approaching from the left side.

    This allowed me to easily place the flat end of the spudger under the cable where the thicker plastic sits and gently pry the cable up until the cable broke away from the body.

    I then used the pointed part of the spudger to gently pry the connector part of the cable away from the socket while gently pulling the fan away until the cable was disconnected and the entire fan was free.

    David Carroll - Antwoord

    Terrible instructions on this one. I thought I was supposed to pull the cable off the bottom of the fan! Not photos showing the final result. Finally the cable on the right came away from the board and out of the socket with the flap lifted up. Please make this clearer or damage to the cable can take place.

    I ran in a similar misalignment so had to bend the top left loop a bit to make it fit.

    Not a big issue, but better to lay it in and check the alignment of all screw holes (and adapt if necessary) before putting the screws in.

    I saw my replacement part had already a bit of paint missing at the top left and bottom right holes, so I assume it is a refurbished or sourced part, so a bit of tweaking may be necessary. BTW, the fan works perfectly, no more annoying clicking noises.

We pulled the tape over it and hoped all would work. Everything seems to be working fine for us.

    Ann Brainard - Antwoord

    The retaining flap broke on me as well and caused a near panic. I actually managed to fix it by careful inspection under magnifier and some trial and error with tweezers. The retaining flap itself is comb shaped - a solid edge and then combs that come out between the wires., and apparently just held in by the tiniest of detents. After trying unsuccessfully to push it back down between the wires, I surmised that the gaps in the “comb” side for the wires were sealed loop and that the wires it sat on were open ended. So I eventually ended up lining the flap up as if it were closed, and then carefully nudging it up onto the top wires, which was succesful, and then pushing it back into the open position to get the detents in place. Then to close it after reinserting the cable I walked it down bit by bit by pushing forward and *downward* on each side to help it maintain it’s ‘hinging’ effect. I think frankly you’re better off pushing larger ones like these down with your finger instead of a tool.

    The wording of the instruction: “Pull the display data cable STRAIGHT OUT of its socket on the logic board” could lead to errors. It almost happened to me.

    Instead you should word it: “Pull the display data cable parallel to the face of the logic board being careful to keep it straight and NOT LIFT UP on the cable”.

    I realize you mention it later in the warning immediately below, however, by first saying “pull the cable straight out” leads to confusion and could lead the user to attempt to interpret “PULL STRAIGHT OUT” as “PULL UP” unsuccesfully only to later notice, maybe after breaking it, that there was a warning.

    Wording it properly the first time will make the warning unnecessary.

The problem isn’t just technicians touching the connector end; you can damage the pins simply by inserting it slightly out of alignment, or at an angle, because the outermost pins are VERY close to the edge and are very fragile. They have the appearance of being embedded in the connector but they’re actually spring traces just lying on top of it. I managed to bend the southmost pin upwards reinserting it; luckily it flattened out again and worked, but if it had not been possible to do that it’d have been a whole new screen assembly.

    Jerome - Antwoord

    I’m pretty sure I inadvertently touched the connectors. Would this cause immediate errors or obscure, difficult-to-diagnose problems later in life ? Also strongly suggest using magnification when disconnecting and reconnecting this connector and others to ensure proper alignment. As Jerome said these are some of the most fragile parts of the system.

    I goofed when re-assembling and nearly destroyed this cable. I had installed it *before* removing the plastic film from the replacement battery. Then at the end, when I realized the plastic was still there, I completely forgot the cable was on top of it and pulled it out forcibly while removing the film. Dumb. Happily, it pulled out of the locked slider without damage. But, I am posting this so others can avoid the excitement.

    Greg Tarsa - Antwoord

    I had trouble with this on reassembly - the cable just wouldn't stay in the socket even after closing the locking mechanism. I thought it looked a bit weird, because I could only get the cable in very little.

    After a few tries I took a closer look at the photos here and realised my stupidity - I was putting the black "pull tab" into the connector instead of the actual cable! The pull tab wasn't sticking up at an angle like in the photos here, instead it was flush against the cable, hiding the actual connector on the cable. Very stupid mistake, but very relieving to see that the cable and the connector weren't broken, which I first feared.

    I found a easier way using tip from China battery seller. Use a 2” width plastic scraper/plastic paint scraper to poke under the battery. Use moderate strength and avoid rough handling of the battery so as not to puncture it. After 5 min of such poking, the entire battery pack can be removed without the hassle of pouring the adhesive remover from step 51 onwards. Get a scraper with a stronger handle so that it is more comfortable to poke/pry.

    This was my first battery replacement. It would have been encouraging to know that “glued in” means small lines of clue around part of the battery, actually what was once really sticky two-sided tape and not glue all over the entire surface of the battery. As it turned out, my batteries were pretty dried up and I was able to pull them out without a great deal of effort. But, I was preparing for “totally glued in” and spent a lot of time deciding if I wanted to engage in that battle.

    • Nu je MacBook Pro voorbereid is, is het tijd om je zelf voor te bereiden.

    • iFixit-lijmverwijderaar bevat aceton, wat voor milde huid- en oogirritaties kan zorgen.

    • Draag oogbescherming bij het gebruiken en toedienen van de lijmverwijderaar. (Oogbescherming wordt ook in je kit meegeleverd.)

    • Draag geen contactlenzen zonder oogbescherming.

    • Er zitten ook beschermende handschoenen in je kit. Als je bang bent voor mogelijke huidirritaties, kun je nu je handschoenen aantrekken.

    • Trek de zwarte, rubberen stopper van het flesje met lijmverwijderaar.

    • Draai de dop eerst van het flesje af voordat je deze open knipt.

    • Dit zorgt ervoor dat de druk in het flesje afneemt voordat je het puntje van de dop eraf knipt. Als je deze stap overslaat, kan het voorkomen dat de lijmverwijderaar onverwachts uit het flesje spuit bij het knippen van de dop.

    • Gebruik een schaar om de verzegelde top van de dop af te knippen.

    • Des te dichter je bij het puntje van de dop knipt, des te meer controle je hebt bij het toedienen van de lijmverwijderaar.

    • Draai de dop weer veilig dicht voordat je verder gaat.

    In case you’re not using the ifixit kit, this solution is almost 100% acetone. It just has some scent added to it.

    The “You don't need to use very much” advice turned out to be a bit misleading. The acetone evaporates pretty quickly, especially if you are actually in a well-ventilated area. The adhesive does need a decent amount of acetone to soften enough to let go of the battery. The battery I removed had a substantial amount of adhesive, so at least 8-10 drops per battery cell was required.

    It’s hard to count the number of drops being dispensed while precisely dispensing the solvent underneath the battery (so it doesn’t just splash around and on the top of the battery and evaporate), so my advice is to moisten the adhesive with plenty of solvent.

    Jamie Flournoy - Antwoord

    I agree with Jamie above. I had to use considerably more than a few drops but then the batteries have been in since 2015 so I would imagine that the adhesive might have become a bit harder. Also my batteries while working fine had become quite inflated and really really had to be replaced. So in inflating like small throw cushions, they also might have lifted up from the adhesive strips and they came out quite easily everything considered. I used old credit cards to keep them from becoming reattached. I also cleaned up the residual adhesive with some carefully applied GooGone and then wiped the inner surface clear with more of the iFixIt remover. It also worked to get the Goo off the little credit card tools. But I used the GooGone on my fingers. I had not touched the aeitone to my skin. Nor was I about too.
