手順 1 Upper Case  ¶ 

Remove the three 2.5mm Phillips screws from within the battery compartment.

手順 1 Upper Case  ¶ 

  • Remove the three 2.5mm Phillips screws from within the battery compartment.

手順 2  ¶ 

Turn the computer 90 degrees clockwise and remove the two Phillips screws from the casing.

手順 4  ¶ 

  • Turn the computer 90 degrees clockwise just one more time, and remove the two Phillips screws on the exterior wall of the battery compartment.

  • Note: For reassembly the two screws have long necks.

Turn the computer over and open it up.

手順 5  ¶ 

  • Turn the computer over and open it up.

  • Remove the following 14 screws:

  • Six 2.5 mm Phillips on either side of the keyboard area.

  • Five 4.5 mm Phillips on the left half of the keyboard area.

  • One 7 mm hex in the upper left corner of the upper case (a T6 Torx driver will do the job nicely).

  • One 15 mm Phillips in the upper middle of the keyboard area.

  • One 16.5 mm hex in the upper right of the upper case (again, a T6 Torx driver will work well).

手順 6  ¶ 

This step is extremely tricky, and has the potential to ruin your computer. It is easy to pull the plug with the red and black leads (the power) out of the motherboard. If you do that, it is nearly impossible to fix.

  • Peel up the two pieces of foil tape on the left side of the keyboard area.

  • The connectors at the ends of the cables are attached very firmly to the sockets on the logic board. Pulling directly on the cable will either separate the cable from its connector or the socket from the logic board.

  • Carefully disconnect the microphone and power cables from the logic board. Using your fingernails or a dental pick, carefully pry the connectors from their sockets. Make sure you're pulling only on the connector and not on the socket.

手順 7  ¶ 

Starting at one of the upper corners near the screen, work around the frame, separating the upper case from the lower case.

手順 8  ¶ 

Using a screw driver, gently release the two grey plastic clips inside the battery compartment in order to remove the right part of the upper case.

手順 8  ¶ 

  • Using a screw driver, gently release the two grey plastic clips inside the battery compartment in order to remove the right part of the upper case.

  • There are two more grey plastic clips holding the left part of the upper case. They are not easy to release as they are hidden from view prior to disassembly. They are in the same position as the two in the battery compartment, but on the opposite side of the trackpad. Try to stick a flat pry tool into the clip holes and push the clips inward (toward to screen) so they disengage and release the left part of the upper case.

  • Lift the upper case off the computer.
