    Why is step 4 needed? The magnetic component doesn’t appear to be in the way of the battery replacement. Is the magnetic component just sitting on the posts (without screws attaching)? Will any magnet work to remove it? Is there any electrical connection to this component?

    There is no electrical connection, it is just sitting there. It should be removed so that it doesn’t fall out during the rest of the repair.

    I’ve tackled apparently more complicated jobs on iMac, MacBook and iPhone, but this one has defeated me! I can’t complete step 3 the panel simply will not slide off.

    Correction, tried some more. After one and a half hours of struggling I finally managed to slide the cover off. Now tht it’s been done once, it slides on and off easily.Just putting this here in case others have the same problem - persevere. In principle the job’s an easy one.

    This instruction confused me. There is a component above the battery. It’s not held there by anything (no adhesive or fasteners), so you can just take it off. They’re saying to use anything magnetic to pick it up, but you can just use your fingers.

OK, the procedure seems straightforward enough, but you say “no parts required” when you actually *do* need to buy the replacement parts for the pieces that are no longer functioning. Where can you buy these parts?
