Use this guide to replace the complete Retina Display assembly on your Retina MacBook 2015.

To avoid logic board damage, when your MacBook repair is complete but before powering it on, connect it to low-voltage power using a 5-Watt iPhone charger and a USB-C to USB-A cable. These accessories are not included with your MacBook, so make sure you have them ready before you begin.

    • Before proceeding, unplug and power down your MacBook. Close the display and flip it upside-down.

    • 2015 models only: To avoid logic board damage, when your MacBook repair is complete but before powering it on, connect it to low-voltage power using a 5-Watt iPhone charger and a USB-C to USB-A cable.

    • Remove the following eight screws securing the lower case:

    • Two 1.8 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Four 2.9 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Two 6.1 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Note the orientation of the screws as you remove them—they need to be reinstalled at a slight angle.

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

  1. Wedge your fingers between the upper case and the lower case, starting from the rear of the MacBook between the hinges. Lift the lower case only slightly to avoid damaging the cables that connect the lower case to the upper case. Keeping a firm grip, lift steadily until the lower case separates slightly from the upper case.

    • Keeping a firm grip, lift steadily until the lower case separates slightly from the upper case.

    • You may experience a lot of resistance when lifting the lower case. If necessary, slide an opening pick or other ESD-safe pry tool down the side edges of the lower case to pop the two hidden retaining clips free.

    • During reassembly, to re-engage the clips, press firmly near both side edges of the lower case (near where the pick is inserted in the third image) until you hear the clips snap into place.

  2. While holding the lower case in place, carefully flip the MacBook over so the Apple logo faces up.

  3. Lift the upper case and display together from the front edge and raise it to about a 45˚ angle. It may be helpful to prop the MacBook open in this position for the next step.

  4. Use the flat end of a spudger to press and hold the small gold 'battery disconnect' button. If the power LED is lit up, continue holding the button until the LED goes dark, and then release. This may take up to 10 seconds. If the LED does not light, release the button after 5-10 seconds. Press and hold it again for 5-10 seconds, and release. Finally, press and hold it a third time for 5-10 seconds, and release.

    • Take care not to damage the ribbon cables that still attach the lower case to the MacBook.

    Before the IPD flex cable can be removed the battery disconnect button has be held down for up to 10 seconds. If the LED near the battery connector is switched on it shows that there is power going through the logic board from the battery, once the button is pressed and this light goes off the machine is safe to be worked on.

    • Raise the upper case/display assembly to about a 90° angle, and prop it up against something sturdy so you don't have to hold it.

    • Add a piece of tape near the track pad to secure the upper case and prevent accidental movement.

    • It's possible to open the MacBook all the way and lay both sides down flat, but this may damage the flex cables and is not recommended.

  11. Remove the single 2.9 mm T5 Torx screw securing the battery connector to the logic board. 2015 models have a silver grounding clip with two foam pads directly under this screw, which may come loose. Be sure to reinstall it during reassembly.

    the moment you opening macbook case and before any tinkering with connections, you MUST press little yellow button on logicboard, located on the right from battery connector - this will disable all power to the board. You can check by looking at the small led on left side of the battery connector - if there is very faint light, it means that power is still there. After pressing button light should go off. Removing screw is not necessary at all, and like I said - you MUST disable power before any touching to connections etc.

    Does unplugging the "dual microphone assembly ribbon cable" affect anything other than the microphones? The headphone jack is separate, for example, right?

    • Remove the four 4.8 mm T8 Torx screws securing the display hinges.

    On an early 2015 model, I found the T9 Torx bit to be too tight a fit in the hinge screw heads. Almost to the point where one screw head got slightly damaged as the bit slipped when turning as it hadn’t gone in far enough. This is the T9 bit that came with the iFixIt 64 bit driver kit.

    So I used the T8 bit instead and managed to loosen the other screws much more easily. It’s a slightly looser fit but it goes in further and didn’t slip even though the screws on this particular machine were very very tightly screwed in.

    Cool_Breeze - 답글

    @cool_breeze I think you’re right and this is probably a mistake in the guide. Apple commonly uses T8 screws, T9 not so much. But it can be hard to tell for sure depending on which toolkit you happen to be using. I’ll update the text to say T8! Thanks for the heads-up.

  34. Holding the display assembly with one hand and the upper case with the other, push them together slightly to move the hinges out of their recesses in the the upper case. There are only a few millimeters of play between the hinges and the case, so you won't need to push far. Push the upper case forward while pulling back gently on the display.

    Furthermore once the repair is complete it's also standard procedure to use a 5Watt power adapter to charge the MacBook until a small chime is heard, at which point the standard adapter can be used

    How long does it take usually before you should hear the chime? Any way to test that the USB-C has been properly plugged backed in before reassembling everything?

결론

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. To avoid logic board damage, when your MacBook repair is complete but before powering it on, connect it to low-voltage power using a 5-Watt iPhone charger and a USB-C to USB-A cable.

Is there a guide to replace the LCD without replacing the entire shell with housing? Replacements for the LCD only are alt cheaper than buying the entire thing.

MrNewbhero - You probably can replace it without a full clamshell, however, be advised that the front glass acts as a part of the LCD and the layers underneath are just backlight pieces and so on. It's a very difficult job for a DIY

This repair is so nervewreaking. I suggest everyone to take your time and really make sure you're not rushing it, or you may break the connectors, as there's tape on everything almost breaking the connector when you remove the flex cable.

David Bolet Alcaide - 답글

The procedure is very similar on the 2016 model, with a few minor differences (screw types, etc). Some differences are documented here, but following this guide should get you 99% of the way there. I'm not sure whether the display itself is compatible/interchangeable between model years.

Ive just done a screen replacement after my son spilled tea over it. The MacBook was still functioning, sound, booting up etc but the screen was dead. Ive just replaced the screen, all works fine, but now the trackpad and keyboard are not working/no power and the trackpad is getting very hot. Does the trackpad send power to the keyboard in this design as it seems like the only link to via a cable.

There’s an alternate way to replace the display assembly shown in a YouTube video from a UK company. It's seemingly a lot less steps, easier, and much quicker. I followed it successfully, so I’m not sure why there is such a big difference between their procedure and this one…

jgregson00 - 답글

I think you were lucky. In that video they do not disconnect the battery, they pry apart ZIF connectors with a screwdriver, they reconnect the TCON cable incorrectly, they skip the 5W charging procedure—all good ways to brick your device. Glad it worked out for you, but I would not recommend anyone follow that example.
