Difficulty in re-installing Antenna Plate

Thanks to the [Mac mini Mid 2010 ハードドライブ|hard drive replacement guide, I managed to replace the hard drive with Intel X25-M 80g SSD and it works great!

However, I encountered difficulty in re-installing the Antenna Plate, particularly the two 5.0mm T8 Torx on both sides. While it was originally perfectly fit (when I tried to remove the antenna plate), it is now re-installed with only one side of the T8 torx on either one side and the two 6.6mm T8 screws in the bottom part, leaving one 5.0mm screw uninstalled. Though my mac mini worked perfectly fine without that screw.

I don't think I have damaged or transformed the antenna plate and I believe that the antenna plate was not perfectly fit out of the box. Do anyone of you encounter this problem? Any solution?

You said it was orginally a perfect fit. Now that you removed and replaced it, it's flawed out of the box! You may have flipped or turned the plate when reinstalling it. Re-examine your installation, please. If the screws don't fit you may have installed it incorrectly.

This antenna plate is extremely difficult to put back. users x10target and Tomas Ottosson in the comments below, know what they are talking about. Check out their answers. Much more helpful than someone telling you; "you probably didn't do it right"...

Mr. Mayer must not have reassembled one of these prior to his answer in 2010, regarding your problem with the antenna plate.

The plate has a tiny lip that must fit into the case precisely. It is very difficult to adjust into proper alignment. The most successful maneuver I have found is to slide the plate into a loose, ready position. Then, instead of sliding straight towards the top of the case (where the 2 dots are), slide the plate at a slight diagonal to the right with enough pressure for the entire lip to ease into place.

This may take a couple of tries to get right. When it is, you'll be rewarded with a slight "Thunk!" as both ears slip into place on either side.

Then screw in the two 5mm T8 Torx screws first, then the Two 6.6mm T8 Torx screws.

I also had problems with this. I found this video suggesting lifting the back of the plate slightly upwards. This helped me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liGlr-4I...

Sorry I’m so late to the party, but I just picked up a 2012 Mac Mini to replace my HEIC-incompatible 2009 Mini. Upon reassembly, I also had some trouble reinstalling the antenna plate, and this page came up first in the Google. Unfortunately, none of the replies described the cause. Finding the cause led to an easy solution.

The cause is that the ridge of the antenna plate has a thin grove into which which the edge of the case must fit. Left to its own devices, the case edge will slip into one side of the groove or the other, but the opposite side of the plate will droop and misalign the case to the top edge of the groove. This allows the screw hole on the good side to align, but the hole on the opposite side is off by ~1-2mm.

The easy fix is to insert the tip of your spudger into one of the holes on the misaligned side to lift the plate slightly. With a slight push on the plate, the case edge immediately falls into the groove, and both screw holes will align perfectly.

Cheers!

I ran into this issue in March 2012 while swapping the factory drive of my 2010 Mini with a larger and faster 7200 RPM drive... Ended up leaving the screw out... Tried again while upgrading to an SSD late last year...

Got ambitious this afternoon and found this post with a Google search. Following x10target's hints, I managed to align this properly and replace the screw for the first time in nearly two years.

Hooray! That is one tricky little bastard, indeed!

Leaving the right side screw out is the right decision. Everything is tight, no parts moving, so the extra screw doesn't provide anything useful to fixing the plate solidly into the right place.
