For my MacBook Pro mid 2014, the socket type was a lever. Looking at the battery, carefully lift it so it makes an angle of 90 degrees, then the cable was easily removable.
Confirmed, I removed the screws of the magboard so the whole magboard was removed together with the logic board at the same time (MacBook Pro mid 2014).
Great, thank you. I got a 20 euro MagSafe board and it works perfectly.
The guide is accurate, and it is indeed easier than I expected.
For reassembly though I had to take out the logic board twice again because one of the small connectors ‘stayed behind’ the logic board and I only discovered later.
So a tip is to count the connectors you removed, and count again to make sure all are in place to connect and didn't stay in an unreachable place before you reattach the logic board.
Also as another tip, for easier reassembly, I put all the screws (and some parts) on the adhesive tape so they stayed in place and I could spatially fix them. I glued the tape to a paper sheet so I could take notes at which step the screws belonged and also other notes.
