Easy guide to replacing battery on Mac. Done it a while ago and just had refresh look as forgotten about Step 5 (i.e. Use the tip of a spudger to carefully peel back the finger of the warning label to reveal a hidden Tri-point screw.) After that it was simple and battery was replaced all under 10 minutes. Thank you. As always these guides here are straight forward, and easy to follow. The “tip” and what equipment to use especially are vital to ensure you don’t break your precious Mac. Plus by doing it yourself (DIY) saves you a heap. Massive thanks to the Author and Ifixit :-) Thank you.
Wow, what an excellent guide. I watched the video first and it looked easy enough. I ensure I had the right equipment first, followed the steps as per the instructions. Had to be careful with Step 9; i.e. removing the plastic pull tab secured to the display data cable lock as it’s fragile. Step 13/14 was difficult too but followed the advice and got there eventually. Reversing back, step 13/14 took a while as did Step 10 and Step 8. Step 8 was a pain actually as I found it really difficult to get the AirPort and Blue tooth antenna back in again.
All in all, as I’m a novice I think it took me almost 90 minutes but I did it and I now have a new screen working perfectly so have renewed my Apple mac laptop. I’ve been meaning to do this for 2 years, but was too scared and thought hey just buy the part and give it a go. If I mess it up, i’ve not used the laptop in 2-years+ so it can go in the bin. Fortunately, even I (complete novice) was able to follow the instructions! Thank you as I now have use of my mac again.
