    • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Three 13.5 mm (14.1 mm) Phillips screws.

    • Seven 3 mm Phillips screws.

    • When removing these screws, note how they come out at a slight angle. They must be reinstalled the same way.

    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

  3. For certain repairs (e.g. hard drive), disconnecting the battery connector is not necessary but it prevents any accidental shorting of electronics on the motherboard. If you do not disconnect the battery connector, please be careful as parts of the motherboard might be electrified. Use the edge of a spudger to pry the battery connector upwards from its socket on the logic board.

The cable is too long for my Samsung 8500 PRO SSD, and it blends under it. Also the CRC Error count is really high. Any help?

Great this is how I take it out. It would be great if there were some help putting it back in, as I am an idiot.

Hm, what step of reassembly is causing trouble, Phillip?

Marty Swartz -

My understanding is that the original Apple cable tends to fail, slowing the speed of hard drive access, but not stopping it outright. I replaced the cable, and changed to a SSD hard drive, and now my machine is SCARY FAST!! Happy, happy. :)
