Use this guide to replace the battery.

Note: If there is a thin plastic film on your replacement battery, do not attempt to remove it. It is glued on and protects the battery pack while it is inside the MacBook.

    • Before proceeding, power down your machine. Close the display and lay it on a soft surface top-side down.

    • Remove the following ten screws:

      • Two 9 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

      • Eight 2.6 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • The special screwdriver needed to remove the ten 5-point Pentalobe screws can be found here.

    These pentalobe screw sizes can't possibly be right - not even close. Should they perhaps be 0,8 mm and 1,2 mm?

    My Wiha P5 screwdriver was too big for these screws, but my P4 worked fine.

    BrianM -

    The pentalobe screw size is 1.2 mm for Macbook Air.

    Jose Gustavo Abreu Murta -

    The screw sizes refer to the length of the shaft, not the diameter of the head or socket. P5 is the standard pentalobe size for all these screws, regardless of length.

    I agree that the notation is a little confusing. I think it's because, with standard sized hardware like for your house, you have shaft diameter (say 1/8" or 3mm) and shaft length (say 3" or 7.5cm). So we're programmed to think of small numbers like that as diameter. But in this case, they're length.

    Pulling the fan cable out was terrifying but you actually just pull on the cable itself. No way to get any leverage at the connector to dislodge it. Did come out easily but like I said, scared me!

    Draai de schroefjes voorzichtig los en leg ze op een stabiele plek neer en let erop dat de schroefje een verschillende lengte hebben.

    I thought I could replace my 256 Gb SSD with 512? regards

    Do you have good Test Point Voltages? It appears there are silver colored Test points on the I/O Board. I am working on a water spill and trying to troubleshoot if both the I/O board and the Logic need replaced.

    It's probably not necessary but may be a little safer to completely discharge the old battery before replacing it.

    tell a model that was not inferior to the speed of the one in the laptop.

    Thank you

    P5 pentalobe screwdrivers are too big! The correct size for these screws are p4 pentalobe. P5 pentalobe was just able, with difficulty, to turn some of the screws. If the screws were at all tight, my p5 was unable to get them out, and started to strip the screws. A p4 screwdriver fit better and removed the screws with ease. (I was using high quality Wiha brand screwdrivers.)

    Very simple installation. The screwdriver heads were exactly what we’re needed, one head for the outside case screws, the other for the screws holding the battery in place. The computer started right up. Now to see how the battery holds up, but I have a good feeling about this!

    My P5 and the T5 worked perfectly with my early 2015 Air 13”! And it is super fast! Thank you iFixit!

  1. Wedge your fingers between the display and the lower case and pull upward to pop the lower case off the Air.
    • Wedge your fingers between the display and the lower case and pull upward to pop the lower case off the Air.

    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

    There is a nub on the inside of the case which is attached to the battery. When you try to pull it open, it appears to be attached to the plastic casing of the battery, which sometimes splits. I gently unhooked the nub from the battery before removing the case fully. This seems to happen if the battery has suffered some drop damage (plastic parts broken around screws and parts of plastic frame split). Just an FYI in case your lower case doesn't pull away easily.

    When closing this back up make sure that the antenna cable is tucked away neatly

    • Grab the clear plastic pull tab attached to the battery connector and pull it toward the front edge of the Air to disconnect the battery from the logic board.

    • Do not lift upward on the connector as you disconnect it.

    • Remove the following five screws securing the battery to the upper case:

      • Three 6.3 mm T5 Torx screws

      • Two 2.4 mm T5 Torx screws

    When going in reverse, it's easier to do step 3 before 4.

    • When handling the battery, avoid squeezing or touching the four exposed lithium polymer cells.

    • Lift the battery from its edge nearest the logic board and remove it from the upper case.

    • If you are installing a new battery:

      • Calibrate your battery before using it: allow it to drain overnight, then charge it to 100% and drain it again until your MacBook Air shuts down automatically. Charge it again and use it normally.

      • If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new battery, you may need to reset your MacBook Pro's SMC.

    Two Questions and a Comment:

    1) “Allow the battery to drain overnight” - Should the computer shut down automatically (during the first drain, as well)? If not, what percentage should the battery reach before charging it to 100%?

    2) While the battery is draining, can I use the computer?

    When installing the new battery, I found it much easier to insert the battery connector before screwing in the battery.

Thanks for this guide! From ordering the parts to doing to work, it was a super easy and fast process! May have been nice to see some mention of the different sized screws in various locations, and how to calibrate the battery once done with the install. Either way, awesome tutorial!

Elias Halsell - 返信

@ejhalsell Good point about calibration—that’s been added to the final step now. There are measurements for every single screw though, so I’m not sure what more you’re looking for there.

Jeff Suovanen -

Just wanted to say thank you for this guide. It was extremely helpful and I appreciate the time you took putting it up!

How best should I dispose of my old battery? Would be nice to include this information.

Thanks!

Benjamin Hoste - 返信

It’s hiding in the conclusion ;) “Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.” Thanks for disposing responsibly!

Jeff Suovanen -

This is great, but, in calibration, what do you mean by “before using it, allow it to drain overnight”? How do I drain it without using it?

brendan kelso - 返信

@bpkelso Calibrate it before you start using it the way you normally would use it. ;) Until it’s calibrated, the battery charge percentage can be very unreliable and you may not get a true “full” charge out of it.
