MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Early 2011 Hard Drive
Excellent guide. My daughter's MacBook Pro had stopped booting up and when she took it to the local Apple Store they recommended replacing the drive. I took the opportunity to upgrade to the 1TB hybrid drive. Easy replacement. I booted up and reinstalled MacOS Lion via WiFi and then upgraded to Sierra. Everything is working fine and now have 900+GB of free space!! Thanks iFixIt folks
T6 perfect for me today.
I put some tape between the connector and socket while working on the drive.
Definitely do this step. It's an easy disconnect anyway and also easy to reconnect later.
I used 3 eggcups to hold the screws ;>) They are very fiddly and easy to drop on floor so keep the MacBook away from the edge of the surface you are using to avoid accidentally dropping a screw off the edge of a table, etc.
