Charges battery and connects battery to logic board.

  1. Use a coin or spudger to rotate the battery-locking screw 90 degrees clockwise.
    • Use a coin or spudger to rotate the battery-locking screw 90 degrees clockwise.

  2. Lift the battery out of the computer.
    • Lift the battery out of the computer.

  3. Unscrew the three evenly-spaced Phillips screws from along the rear wall of the battery compartment.
    • Unscrew the three evenly-spaced Phillips screws from along the rear wall of the battery compartment.

    • The screws are captive to the metal memory cover so you cannot lose them.

    • Using The Flexible Extension sold by iFixit will help with this step.

  4. Rotate the L-shaped memory cover so it clears the battery compartment opening and lift it up and out of the computer.
    • Rotate the L-shaped memory cover so it clears the battery compartment opening and lift it up and out of the computer.

  5. Remove the following 3 screws:
    • Remove the following 3 screws:

    • One 11 mm Phillips#00 in the middle of the lower case. (Head: 5mm dia. x .75mm thick)

    • Two 14.5 mm Phillips #00 (Head: 5mm dia. x .75mm thick)

    • If the screws stick in the case, you can use a magnetized screwdriver to draw them out.

    • The shorter of the three screws goes in the middle.

  6. Take extra caution with these screws as they can strip easily!
    • Take extra caution with these screws as they can strip easily!

    • You could use a flexible extension to minimize stripping.

    • Remove the following 3 screws from the rear wall of the battery compartment:

    • One 3 mm Phillips #0. (Head: 2.75 mm. dia.)

    • Two 4 mm Phillips #0 on the either side. (Head: 2.75mm dia.)

  7. Remove the two Phillips screws from either side of the right wall of the battery compartment (not the ones closest to the battery connector).
    • Remove the two Phillips screws from either side of the right wall of the battery compartment (not the ones closest to the battery connector).

    • Two 6.25 mm Phillips #000. (Head: 4 mm. dia. x .5mm thick)

  8. Remove the four indicated Phillips screws from the front wall of the battery compartment. When working from the left, remove the 2nd, 4th, 7th and 9th screws.
    • Remove the four indicated Phillips screws from the front wall of the battery compartment. When working from the left, remove the 2nd, 4th, 7th and 9th screws.

    • Four 3.25 mm Phillips #000. (Head: 4 mm. dia. x 4mm thick)

  9. Remove the following 4 screws from the back of the computer:
    • Remove the following 4 screws from the back of the computer:

    • Two 11 mm Phillips #00, with Shank (2.2mm dia. x 2 mm len.) (Head: 3.2 mm. dia. x .5mm thick)

    • Two 7.25 mm Phillips #00, with Shank (2mm dia. x 3.75 mm len.) (Head: 3.2 mm. dia. x .5mm thick)

    • During reassemble, install the two longer screws go on the inside, and the two shorter screws go on the outside.

  10. Remove the two Phillips screws from the optical drive side of the computer:
    • Remove the two Phillips screws from the optical drive side of the computer:

    • Two 5.2 mm Phillips #00, with shank (2.3mm dia. x 3.25 mm len.) (Head: 3.2 mm. dia. x .5mm thick)

    • It is not necessary to remove the similar screws on the other side of the computer.

  11. There's a trackpad and keyboard ribbon cable connecting the upper case to the logic board, so don't pull the upper case off entirely just yet.
    • There's a trackpad and keyboard ribbon cable connecting the upper case to the logic board, so don't pull the upper case off entirely just yet.

    • Starting near the display and working around to the front of the computer, pry up on the upper case. A plastic opening tool, expired plastic credit or similarly-thick card, or a medium hard guitar pick may help you to do this.

    • The upper case is likely to stick at the connection above the front edge of the optical drive. If this happens, first free all other sides, then proceed to pull upward on the upper case from either side of the optical drive opening.

    • If you stand the base on end to get a better look, you may displace the four grey plastic clips that hold the right side of the upper case in place. Don't panic. They slide into slots at the top rightmost edge of the lower frame, above the front edge of the optical drive.

    • During reassembly, make sure the clips on the right side click firmly into place. They're different from the clips on the left side, and so normally they require a little more pressure to click into place more firmly.

  12. While holding up the upper case open, pull up the black tab, on the connector end of the silver cable, away from the connector's socket on the logic board. If there is no black tab, you can also use a spudger to gently pry the connector out of its socket on the logic board.  This connector is tall, so be sure to pry straight up. If you happen to break your upper case cable when removing the upper case, we stock the cable individually and we have a guide that makes replacing it easy.

    • While you have the upper case removed, it's a good time to remove dust, hair, etc. It's best to use a can of compressed air, though if you use a brush, make sure that its bristles are made of a material (usually animal hair) that doesn't generate static electricity, which can destroy electronics.

    • Upon reassembly, there are 4 grey plastic clips installed in slots running along the top of the frame in front of the optical drive (refer to second and third pictures). These clips must be installed in their slots for their mating tabs on the underside of the right side of the upper case to snap into them.

  13. Remove the single Phillips screw near the battery connector.
    • Remove the single Phillips screw near the battery connector.

  14. Remove the small black plastic spacer from the computer.
    • Remove the small black plastic spacer from the computer.

    • Penryn models do not have a removable spacer.

  15. Remove the two Phillips screws attaching the battery connector to the lower case.

  16. Use a spudger to carefully pry the battery connector up and disconnect it from the logic board.
    • Use a spudger to carefully pry the battery connector up and disconnect it from the logic board.

    • In models that don't have a removable black spacer, you may need more clearance to unplug the battery connector from the logic board. Remove the screw at the middle of the left I/O frame, then lift up the lower end of the I/O frame. If removing this screw doesn't give you enough clearance, remove the I/O frame.

    • Look at the pinout on the bottom of the battery connector circuit board. If there's no gap in the two rows of pins (if both rows contain ten pins), it's the Non-Energy Star version. If there is a gap (two rows of six pins each, separated from two rows of three pins each), then it's the Energy Star version. These two versions aren't interchangeable.

    • When reinstalling/replacing the battery connector, make sure to route its short black cable into the channel provided for it in the lower case frame, or else it might press upward on the left edge of the top case at this location, preventing the top case from laying flat here.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Did you ever resolve the issue? If so, what was the problem? Thank you.

Sherita Sims -

My battery connector looks like the energy star (6+12 pins) but on the motherboard says “apple inc 820-2279-A “ and no ‘energy star’ is written. I assume I should get the energy star model because is identical to mine. However, iFixit points to follow what is written on the board. So, something wrong here…
