Use this guide to remove the glued-in battery from your MacBook Pro. This is best done with the help of an iFixit battery replacement kit; the liquid adhesive remover in your kit will dissolve the adhesive securing the battery, allowing you to remove it with ease. Alternatively, you can use an iOpener to apply a modest amount of heat in order to soften the adhesive before prying out the battery.

iFixit adhesive remover is highly flammable. Perform this procedure in a well-ventilated area. Do not smoke or work near an open flame during this procedure.

To minimize risk of damage, turn on your MacBook and allow the battery to fully discharge before starting this procedure. A charged lithium-ion battery can create a dangerous fire if accidentally punctured. If your battery is swollen, take extra precautions.

Note: The solvent used to dissolve the battery adhesive can damage certain plastics, such as the MacBook Pro's plastic speaker enclosures. Take care when applying the solvent.

If you're using the old-style iFixit adhesive remover with separate bottle and syringe (no longer sold), click here for a slightly modified set of instructions.

    • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Two 2.3 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Eight 3.0 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your device.

    For all the screws you use the P5 pentalobe screwdriver?

    Carlos - 답글

    Pentalobe is only for the screws on the bottom cover. The Torx screw driver is for the remainder.

    Fredrik -

    Is the Pentalobe screwdriver mentioned in the tools list? I did not have one so I used a filed down flat blade screwdriver. Not a fantastic idea, but it works.

    Alex Birkett - 답글

    Yes, it's mentioned on the top of this page. P5 Pentalobe to be precise. I didn't have one either, so I bought one from iFixit and that works fantastic. An absolutely precise fit, which is important especially when you might open your MacBook a couple of times during the years you own it. Not using the correct tool might do more harm to the screws than you want! I once had this with a Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro, which has Torx screws (T4 I think) and I used cheap Chinese quality tools, with the result that both the tool and one of the screws are damaged.

    addvariety -

    I never, ever, ever considered using anything but the correct tool on the Pentalobe screws. Too easy to strip and void your warranty (if still in effect), as well as make it almost impossible to get inside later for another upgrade or repair. The Wiha P5 Pentalobe screwdriver fits like a glove and costs only about $11 (a fraction of your drive's price)at Amazon.com. Get it!

    marketing - 답글

    is P5 supposed to be for all 10 screws? it works on the 2x 2.3mm at the top, but not for the 8x others for me. what size screwdriver for the 3mm? thanks

    monsieurescargot - 답글

    Yes, the p5 works for all 10 pentalobe screw heads for bottom cover. The the different size mm reference only refers to the difference in length of the screws, but again both heads are p5.

    I followed this exactly and was able to replace my broken trackpad. I did not have to replace the ribbon OR the battery. However I would suggest getting the ribbon since it’s fairly cheap, as for the batteries I was able to do it with a card only. I didn’t use any heat or the liquid but it takes some time. You really have to work the card in there to release the glue. Also you must be very careful not to bend the batteries or damage them, if you do you must replace with new. This took me about 1.5hrs and my computer works like new. Apple cost for this job was around $450, I did it for $120. Big ups to ifixit for this awesome tutorial, tool set and parts!

    On a side note, only use quality tools, the cheap ones will break or strip the screws.

    Dustin Steward - 답글

    Note that the eight 3mm screws have a shoulder under the head, while the two 2.3mm screws are “full thread”, i.e., there is no shoulder under their heads. It’s important to put the two screws with no shoulder at the hinge of the cover.

    All ten screws require a P5 Pentalobe screwdriver, preferably with a magnetized tip to help hold and position the screw.

    All of the screws have blue “Loctite” thread locker compound on their threads. This is to help prevent the screws from working loose and falling out. Don’t attempt to clean the Loctite from the screws — leave it in place, and it will continue to help prevent the re-inserted screws from working loose.

    When replacing the bottom cover, it is a good technique to insert and BEGIN tightening all ten screws BEFORE fully tightening any one screw. After all the screws have been started, then go around and finish tightening all of them. By doing this, you make it easier to feel that each screw has been started properly, and is not “cross-threaded”.

    doubleclutch - 답글

    This is what I found on my MBP mid-2014 13” Retina. All 10 used the same screwdriver. I didn’t see the blue “loctite” but I also got my computer refurbished.

    Evan Shulman -

    A good technique for starting to thread the screws when replacing them is to position and align the screw, and with the driver, gently turn the screw in the REMOVAL direction until you feel and hear a slight click. This click happens when the leading thread of the screw drops off of the leading edge of the thread in the hole — this is the point at which the threads are properly positioned for engagement. You can now turn the driver and screw in the TIGHTENING direction. This technique will help prevent accidental “cross-threading” of the screw, which will damage the threads permanently.

    Note that this is a useful technique when installing ANY threaded fastener.

    Just finished replacing my battery (MacBook Pro 13” early 2015), glad I did, the old ones were noticeably swollen. I was surprised to find the battery at 57% upon completion and charging the new battery. No problems with replacement however, kit arrived without the Pentalobe driver. I got a nice complete kit from Amazon for 20 euro in 2 days. iFixit offered a coupon on any future purchase but right now, I have no plans on needing anything. Nice gesture but would have preferred the driver in the kit in the first place.

    Suggest having a small can of compressed air on hand to clean out the interior, after 4 years, mine was quite dirty. Ear buds and alcohol were the best I could do. And a magnetized driver is mandatory I think.

    REQUIRED PARTS (SCREWS) TO DO THIS JOB UNAVAILABLE HERE:

    If your keyboard is riveted to the chassis as mine is, Late 2013 MBP 13” retina, you need about 100 screws to reattach the new keyboard.

    ifixit does not have them. I did just now find them at Beetstech for $4.50 along with a back light $13 for the keyboard in case you want one. It looks like Beetstech is a big competitor of ifixit with an excellent reputation (like ifixit has) too. I just ordered these parts and will not happily be moving forward with my keyboard replacement.

    Hi peeps,

    I have a wifi problem on this MBP 13” early 2015 and was pleasently surprised to find your guide to changing the airport card.

    However upon closer inspection it seems that on my MBP (purchased new or so I thought) the 3 antennae seem so have been soldered together at the point where they are clamped to the chassis. I have photos but cannot post here. Can anyone conform that where the 3 antennae wires are held to the chssis by the 2 scew metal support (just before disappearing into the screen hinge), the support is not meant to short the 3 wires together. This makes no sense for 3 seperate antennae wires.

    Any advice /close up photos is welcome here.

    Hi, in order to drain the battery I am running:

    yes > /dev/null

    in 4 terminals, so the CPU maxes out at almost 99%.

    I hope this speeds up the battery draining process.

    And the backlight is at maximum brightness :-)

    You can see the cpu load in Activity Monitor.

    • Wedge your fingers between the upper case and the lower case.

    • Gently pull the lower case away from the upper case to remove it.

    I thought I made sure it was connected but when running the computer it only detected the battery but couldn’t power it. I had to run with power adapter. Also it didn’t charge. I guess some pins were connected but not all. To verify that all were connected I removed the plastic cover, placed it carefully completely flat, and then reattached the plastic cover. After that it worked!

    I was able to remove the batteries using the plastic ifixit card only, it requires you to work it back and forth but it can be done. However, for a few bucks I would suggest the heating pad. I was able to reuse my batteries (although not suggested).

  23. If you have an iFixit battery kit with liquid adhesive remover, it's time to get it prepped. Alternatively, if you are using the hot iOpener method, skip the following three steps.
    • If you have an iFixit battery kit with liquid adhesive remover, it's time to get it prepped.

    • Alternatively, if you are using the hot iOpener method, skip the following three steps.

    • iFixit adhesive remover contains acetone, a mild skin and eye irritant.

    • Wear eye protection when handling and applying the adhesive remover. (Eye protection is included in your kit.)

    • Do not wear contact lenses without eye protection.

    • Protective gloves are also included in your kit. If you are concerned about skin irritation, put your gloves on now.

  24. Pull off the black rubber stopper from your bottle of adhesive remover. Twist to loosen or remove the bottle cap before you cut the applicator tip. This unseals the bottle and allows the pressure to equalize before you cut the applicator tip. If you skip this step, the adhesive remover may spray out unexpectedly when the tip is cut.

    • Use scissors to cut off the sealed tip of the applicator.

    • Cutting close to the narrow tip will give you better control so you can apply the adhesive remover in small amounts.

    • Twist and close the bottle cap securely before you proceed further.

    just acetone (manicure remover) is ok.

    • You don't need to use very much. The small bottle contains more than twice the amount of solvent needed to remove all the battery cells.

    • Wait 2-3 minutes for the liquid adhesive remover to penetrate underneath the battery cell before you proceed to the next step.

  26. If you don't have a liquid adhesive remover, you'll be using a hot iOpener to warm and soften a section of the adhesive securing the battery to the upper case, and then carefully prying at that point. Use the hot iOpener to cover half of the right-most battery cells.

    • After about a minute, reheat the iOpener and move it to cover the other half of the right-most battery cells.

  27. Push a plastic card between the right-most battery cell and the upper case, cutting the adhesive between the two. Throughout this procedure, be careful not to damage any of the battery cells with your tools. A damaged lithium-ion battery may leak dangerous chemicals and/or catch fire. Use only plastic pry tools.

    I suggest taping the batteries together on the top, this will keep them intact while you work the card back and forth. If you are very careful during these steps you can reuse your batter but make sure to inspect it Very well. If there is any damage whatsoever do not run the risk of leaking fluid to the rest of your computer.

  36. Remove the battery. Before installing your new battery, remove all the old adhesive from the MacBook Pro's case.
    • Remove the battery.

    • Before installing your new battery, remove all the old adhesive from the MacBook Pro's case.

    • With a little luck, you can slowly pull out each strip of adhesive with your fingers.

    • Otherwise, soak each section of adhesive with a bit of adhesive remover for 2-3 minutes, and then scrape it out with an opening pick or one of the other tools in your kit. This can take quite a bit of work, so be patient.

    • Mop up any remaining adhesive remover and give your MacBook Pro a few minutes to air dry.

    • The replacement battery included in your iFixit kit comes with adhesive pre-installed. Test the battery's fit and alignment carefully before peeling off the film covering the adhesive, and then press each cell firmly into place. If any additional films/liners are present that weren't on your original battery, remove them last.

    • Calibrate your newly installed battery: charge it to 100%, and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Unplug and use it normally to drain the battery. When you see the low battery warning, save your work, and keep your laptop on until it goes to sleep due to low battery. Wait at least 5 hours, then charge your laptop uninterrupted to 100%.

    • If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new battery, you may need to reset your MacBook Pro's SMC.

    Remember that the speakers fit on either side of the battery. When placing the new battery, make sure to leave enough space for them.

    My batteries were swollen pushing out on the keyboard and back of the case. The battery replacement was in my mind rather simple given the instructions. It was about taking time and logically laying removed items with screws. The battery removal was a little more completed…my approach was to put the opened case with batteries only exposed to the direct sunlight for 45 or so minutes. So taking time with plastic tools provided starting in the corner of the outermost batteries and working toward the center two was key. I put waxed paper between the batteries and the case to prevent reattachment. Removal from start to finish was about 20 minutes working slowly feeling and looking for the release of adhesive. I was concerned about putting liquid directly on the metal parts so I used acetone on a rag to clean remaining adhesive. Alignment of the batteries and circuit board was key to the installation. “Dry fit the batteries and board to see how they will go in. Then begin in the middle outward.

    Friendly warning: Make sure the adhesive remover evaporates before connecting the new battery!

    I successfully changed the battery in my 2015 MacBook Pro, everything powered on just fine, then I put it in my neoprene sleeve. The next morning I noticed some of the adhesive remover on my keyboard. I wiped it off, powered it on and then it suddenly shut down. After a couple more tries I could no longer get it to power on. It was dead. Took it to a repair shop and they concluded it was most likely liquid damage to the logic board. Total bummer. I have sense learned that the adhesive remover itself is not conductive, but it can dissolve something like glue, and then become conductive. The adhesive remover also cools as it evaporates which attracts moisture. So please make sure your adhesive remover evaporates completely before connecting your new battery.

    Tips for alignment:

    1. Do not remove the plastic covering the adhesive and then try to align the battery. Leave the plastic on and remove one at a time after the battery is aligned.

    2. Use masking tape to hold the battery cells together while aligning, otherwise they flop around a lot.

    3. Put your speakers next to the battery cells (before removing plastic on adhesive) to ensure you’re leaving enough room.

    4. Make sure your battery connector is well aligned too.

    I actually also, installed the speakers back before adhering new battery down, it was a pretty tight fit. Also one speaker on each side has a smaller screw than the other 2 so be aware to get them back in the correct spot. I also had one of the long screws that wouldn’t fit in the spot so I switched them, so you might be careful of that too…not sure why but it wouldn’t thread in….weird.

    In fact I think each of the three speaker screws are of a different length.

    Adam Griggs -

    one more thing, if you install the speakers first (totally do-able) you’ll take off the adhesive on the outer most cell on each side first and you’ll approach it from the top and tuck it under the very edge of speaker…after that’s done press down when happy with alignment.

Thanks to this guide I saved my broken MacBook Pro from a coffee spill that killed the battery. It cost me about 30% compared to what it would have cost to have the battery changed at an Apple authorized repair center. It wasn't easy to do, but that just made it all the more satisfying.

One comment: the new battery pack I bought came attached to a thin film which had to be removed. I unfortunately tore off some of the strips of glue attached to the back of the battery cells, before getting the hang of it. No big deal. But if you have to do the same thing: peel slowly.

I would download an application called coconut battery from here: http://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutba...

This will indicate your battery's current health (I am not sure how accurate it is or how it measures the milliamps/hour) which might help you determine when you need to recharge it. I don't know what else you could do but I'd check the battery's health before anything since it might be causing the problem if it is faulty.

How strong is the adhesive on the iFixit replacement battery, compared to the Apple OEM adhesive? Are we looking at a similar painful extraction process if/when we pull the replacement battery?

For that matter, is an Apple-esque strong adhesive actually necessary in this application? Double-sided tape is usually weaker; it might be a little thinner than the adhesive layer, and certainly far more user serviceable. Would tape be sufficient to hold the battery in place? Once you've got the bottom case screwed back on, the battery is immobilized anyway.

It's still going to be fairly painful to remove. The battery needs to be very well secured—you don't want a soft-shell lithium ion battery coming loose and moving around inside the laptop. Even a little bit of movement could be dangerous.

Actually did this in a different way. Easy 10 minute job ! get a 50mm so called "Japanese putty knife" which usually comes is a set of 3-4 with various widths. Cost about 3 euro and available at any paint shop. They are basically thin METAL versions of the Ifixit plastic card. BUT it can be used differently. Rub the back end over som 80 grit sandpaper to make it sharp. Not too sharp, more like a blunt knife. Now get your girlfriends (or boyfriends :-) ) hair dryer and heat the metal up a bit. Again, not too hot. Then insert it under the first battery and apply some pressure while wiggling it around a bit. The warm tip will easily cut through the glue. Repeat the heating- cutting cycle a few times until all cells are removed. It took me all of 10 minutes to do. I needed to replace te keyboard and I could actually still re-use the battery pack !

Much easier than things like replacing iPhone home buttons where there are lots of ways you can make a mess. Great work iFixit for the guide and a very high quality replacement battery. €100 saved.

Merci pour ce guide très très utile ! Premièrement Attention positionnement de la nouvelle batterie ++ voir plus bas !

L’opération est délicate mais largement faisable même pour un débutant sans expérience d’électronique !

Bien préparer le travail, lire le tutoriel et savoir toutes les étapes est essentiel ! S’organiser en terme de place, d’outils, lumière, perturbation extérieure est aussi important pour pas se faire dépasser par les événements !

J’aimerais aussi dire que au début on n’ose pas forcer pour déconnecter certains câbles mais c’est bien car en fait cela vient relativement facilement si on tire dans le bon sens ! Certains sont plus dur que d’autre mais on comprend vite comment on peut forcer ou pas.

La nouvelle batterie … faites attention a son positionnement +++ . Pour mon expérience avant de la coller j’ai voulu tester la batterie avec les haut parleurs et vérifier si tout se positionnaient correctement ! Après avoir mis des marques au crayon de bois j’ai pu continuer sereinement.

Encore Merci :) !

Thanx for the tutorial but was a trackpad issue macbook pro 2015 i changed it put back the battery the laptop is working very fine 300 cycles of battery BUT I GET SERVICE BATTERY when i click the battery icon how do i get rid of it

The battery in this laptop should never be re-used after being removed—it’s easily damaged and becomes a potential fire hazard. Replace the battery ASAP.

Jeff Suovanen -

This guide was fantastic and helped me plan and execute the task. I did everything as instructed except for removing the trackpad cable in step 20. I wasn’t sure how the ZIF cable attached and didn’t want to risk it. The cable was only marginally in the way and didn’t affect the install. I’m performing the calibration now and we’ll see how long the battery holds up… at least I’m confident that the install was perfect. It is also helpful when the back is off to take a peek around and clean up any dust balls, gunk, etc.

Thanks for this guide it is great! But after replacing the battery trackpad is dead. Any idea? should i replace cable?

Tomaz Utrosa - 답글

Same here, just replaced the battery tonight precisely following the ifixit guide and the trackpad is not functioning. What is the solution?

Brian Crink -

Double-check everything in Steps 17-20. Make sure the sockets are clean and the cable is fully seated at both ends, and that there’s no damage to the cable itself.

Jeff Suovanen -

@jeffsu I rechecked and reconnected several times. Checked sockets, replaced the ribbon cable and I/O board cable. Installed the battery at 35%, it is not holding charge and the MacBook remains at 1% and dies immediately if unplugged. Reconnected the battery and no difference. At login screen Bluetooth mouse and keyboard don’t work but at the disk password login screen the Bluetooth devices work. Macbook’s Trackpad and keyboard still don’t work. What is the solution?

Brian Crink - 답글

Sounds like your machine has multiple issues; this is too much to troubleshoot in the guide comments section. Try posting over in the Answers forum. There are lots of posts on the keyboard/trackpad issue already if you’re looking for ideas. Good luck!

Super Reparaturanleitung mit dem EU123054-5 MacBook Pro 13" Retina (Early 2015) Battery Options: Fix Kit hat das ohne Problme funktioniert.

Dauer etwa 1,5 Std. mit allen Reinigungsarbeiten (Klebereste entfernen) und Wartezeit zum ablüften. Für 110€ gegenüber 230-250€ ist das eine tolle Lösung für einen neuen Accu.

Vielen Dank an Andrew Optimus Goldheart und den 6 anderen Mitwirkenden. Besonderen Dank an Annika Faelker für die super Übersetzung.

Replaced a very puffed battery using this guide, went just fine using adhesive remover.

It was a bit easier than I assumed, but dealing with that glue is far more irritating than I thought it would be too.

Bravo ! Super “Pas à pas”. L’opération s’est déroulée nickel. Mon conseil :

lire intégralement le “Pas à pas” avant d’attaquer. Préparer son matériel, être ordonner et surtout prendre son temps ….

Easy replacement, as long as you are following the instructions. From start to finish: ONE HOUR. I did not use any chemicals to dislodge the old battery — instead I used a hair dryer (set to medium) to apply heat to the old battery. The new battery went in just fine, and, in a few minutes, the laptop was happy again. Thank you, iFixit. Good stuff!

Serge N - 답글

The batteries in my laptop were so puffed that the laptop was bending and the top wouldn’t close properly anymore. So, when OS X says that your batteries need to be serviced, it means it.

That being said, this is *NOT* an easy repair. To start, I cracked the fragile corners on the battery. They are marked on the cellophane covering the battery, but I didn’t notice until *after* I had already cracked them. Sigh. Bought a new battery.

For me, the biggest issue was getting the new batteries in place properly. I had to lift and reposition the batteries with very sticky adhesive several times in order to get the position correct and have enough clearance for the speakers. Some advice/pictures/video on how to put the batteries back in with that sticky adhesive back would help tremendously.

Thanks for the guide and kit. I successfully installed a new battery, but I think I’ll leave this up to folks who do these kinds of battery repairs as a business next time.

It is mandatory to check the Age of the new Batterie, the Batterie should not older than on or two Month, from the current Date you will change it.

Also you don’t need a App to check the Batterie, Simply go to The Apple symbol , hit About this Mac, hit System Information, go to Hardware, and hit Power supply , you Batterie Production year/month how many charge cycles and so and so

It is maybe cheaper to remove the Batterie at your own, but the solvent can destroy a lot of the inner stuff of your MacBook when come into Places it should not go.and there is a high Risk to damage some stuff on the MotherBoard . And there is one Important thing you have to consider, no Garantie if something goes wrong you are on yourself. So saving 120$ dollar is no Option if you destroy your Motherboard . I’d rather pay the 350$ for the Change even I am qualified enough to do it myself, and there is also in the case the new Batterie is to old I can go Back and let them Change it and this time for free. Li-Po Batteries aging also when not used.

Thank you very much, my battery was swollen and I got an outrageous quote from Apple Authorized dealer for the battery replacement. did it myself and saved over 60% of the cost.

Thank you once again. it took me about 1.5 hours to complete, I didn’t use the solvent, i used I-remover and the battery removed in about 10 minutes.

I replaced my broken battery today, began charging but it stalled at 51% (I don’t know where it started). It says that the battery condition is at the ‘Replace Now’ stage.

I’m not even sure where to begin troubleshooting this.

Nathan Bryant - 답글

My battery stills in 1% and says battery condition “replace now”, did the SMC reset and remains with the same problem, someone help!!

Santiago García -

This was much easier than than expected, the adhesive remover (which I think is just acetone) worked really well. I was worried that the cause of the problem was the battery charging controller and the the swelling would just return, but did not realize that the controller comes with the battery, so I am less concerned now. I was also concerned that the swelling, which caused the laptop not to sit properly on a desk, and the cover to fully close would still remain after replacing the battery, but it seems like this was all due to the swollen battery and once replaced everything seems fine (sits flat and cover fully closes again)

If I change the battery on a MacBook Pro running Catalina, will it still work or is there a mechanism Apple build in Catalina so it won’t accept the battery as its own and therefore prohibt to run?

What’s the difference to the late 2014 battery?

IF123-054-5 A1582 for A1502 Early 2015 (6560 mAh) vs.

IF123-053 A1493 for A1502 Mid 2014 (6330 mAh)

I’m afraid they are incompatible?

Martin - 답글

However, products such as B07H31GXJ2 claim to compatible for both A1582 and 1493

I was not sure of my abilities, but I needed to fix my MacBook Pro 13" Retina (Early 2015). This seemed to be the best, though slightly more expensive, way to go about it. I’m happy about how it all went. I did a few of the short cuts and used a hair dryer instead of the adhesive remover, though it required a bit more muscle and patience. I appreciate all the efforts of those involved.

Frank Rowland - 답글

I replaced the battery of my Mac successfully and everything is working as expected. The only issue I have, is that the outer segments of the new battery do not seem to hold on to the case. It seems as though the adhesive is not sticky enough. Before installing the new battery I made sure that the case was completely clean; all remnants of the old adhesive were removed.

Any tips on how to fix this? Just glue it in? If so, with which glue? Doublesided tape? There’s a bit too much free space inside the case, so if I move my laptop, I can hear the battery segments move inside the case…

My battery came with 86% charge but of course, condition as normal for full charge capacity and longevity. Cheers. Took me 26 minutes for entire job. I’ve done several of these though, prepare for an hour at least your first time and GO SLOW and double check everything as you go.

One note for having a grand finale: turn the laptop around while reattaching the battery to its port in order to get a better view of how secure it is in place.

I completed all the final steps in reverse and closed my laptop up, only to power it on and see that it wasn’t recognizing the new battery (battery icon had an X through it). So I had to remove the bottom cover and again and make sure it was fastened. Turns out that I had only clicked it half into place. All is well now and I couldn’t be happier with the kit and guide! Thank you so much.

Hallo,

nach dem Tausch lässt sich das MB nicht mehr starten.

Ein/Aus / P+R+alt+cmd

Also auch ein SMC Reset mit

Ctrl+alt+shift / Ein/Aus

helfen nicht weiter.

Hin und wieder zeigt der Bildschirm mal eine Batterie mit rotem Balken an, aber unregelmäßig.

Einbau hatte problemlos funktioniert.

This was a straightforward repair thanks to the good instructions. This is my first battery swap in a MB Pro after 2 easy ones in MacBook Airs. The adhesive makes this one more complicated. Still took less than an hour, going slow and double checking everything as I went. 2 shortcuts I found: 1) No need to completely disconnect the right speaker. Work the cable loose along the edge of the battery, remove the screws and swing the speaker out of the way. 2) Only need to disconnect the logic board end of the trackpad cable. Another tip: make sure the outermost cells are positioned in such a way that the speakers drop in place. It’s easy to slightly misposition the cell and prevent the speaker(s) from seating properly. Overall, this is another quality repair kit from iFixit.
