Why is there a plastic/paper adhesive strip over where the battery is?
I used the guide to replace my fan — which worked out super great!
However, this is the part that I am confused about:
I needed to disconnect my battery and I did, but what is the purpose of plastic adhesive strip over where the battery connects? Also why is there a paper strip underneath?
The paper strip ripped a little when I took the plastic adhesive strip out. When I put my laptop back together I just stuck the adhesive cover back over where the battery connects. However, since the paper ripped a little I am afraid it might somehow set on fire because it looks like it is made of paper? So — I am just wondering what is the purpose of this paper and since it is a little ripped should I take it out or is it safe to be in my laptop and it won’t cause any issues?
Also, was it okay that I put the adhesive strip back in? What else can I use as an adhesive strip that is safe in the MacBook?
