Seems like pretty much all Early 2013 rMBP guides say that it has T5 screws but mine has the P5 screws. I had to turn in my Mac for repairs early 2016 so it seems like the screws are different due to that.

This tutorial worked perfectly for me and I have never, ever, considered working on my computer before. I ordered the tools from ifixit.com and it was a breeze!!!! Everything works perfectly -thank you so very much!

Everything worked great, took me about 30 minutes to complete. I replaced my working adapter with an 802.11ac module (BCM94360CSAX), cost me $12 on Ebay. I now have 802.11ac (instead of just 802.11n) and with working 802.11v support provided by the new adapter, I can now unlock my MBP with my apple Watch! Thank you.

The required hardware seems correct -- I needed a T5 bit and a P5 Pentalobe, as well as a spudger. I used the flat end of the spudger to gently press the antenna connectors together. They make a distinctive "snap" when they connect.

When you replace the Airport card, (or at least if you’ve upgraded it to a newer but compatible 802.11ac/BT4.0 card) any apps you downloaded from the App Store won’t launch, but complain that they were downloaded on a different Mac. You’ll either need to authenticate with your Apple ID for each one, or reinstall them.
