Introducción

Utiliza esta guía para remover la batería pegada de tu MacBook Pro con la ayuda del kit de reemplazo de batería de iFixit. El removedor de adhesivo en tu kit disolverá el adhesivo que sujeta la batería, permitiéndote removerla con facilidad. La batería está constituida de seis celdas diferentes, cuatro de las cuales están adheridas a la caja superior.

El removedor de adhesivo de iFixit es altamente inflamable. Realiza este procedimiento en un área muy bien ventilada. No fumes o trabajes cerca de una flama al descubierto durante este procedimiento.

Para minimizar el riesgo de daño, enciende tu MacBook y deja que a la batería se descargue completamente antes de comenzar este procedimiento. Una batería cargada de ion de litio puede crear una incendio peligroso e incontrolable si se perfora accidentalmente. Si tu batería está hinchada, toma precauciones adicionales].

Nota: El solvente utilizado para disolver el adhesivo de batería puede dañar ciertos plásticos, como los recintos de plástico de los altavoces de la MacBook Pro. Ten cuidado al aplicar el solvente.

Si estás utilizando el removedor de adhesivo iFixit de estilo antiguo con una botella y una jeringa (no se vende más), [guía|110107|haz clic aquí para una guía de instrucciones ligeramente modificada].

    If don’t have one of those neat project mats, then you can use small pieces of flattened blu-tack to hold the screws. If you arrange them in the shape of your mac book cover, and put the screws down methodically, you can get a one-to-one mapping of the screws to the correct screw holes.

    Or you can use an ice tray where you put the screws and the parts in separate bays in the same order as they come in the instructions.

    This plastic cover wasn’t included with the new battery so I placed the original one back in. Was it supposed to go back in? This detail wasn’t clear since the original cover didn’t fit exactly over the newer battery connector. Plus any stickiness of adhesive that may have been there was gone.

    How can I remove interposer I m not able to remove it

    Raunak - Contestar

    you must lift it absolutely vertically, or it fouls against the locator pin in the corner- you can easily get the impression that it won’t come over the end of this pin- almost like it’s rivetted in. it isn’t. get a good grip on it with the tweezers in the centre hole & one of the sides, & lift it STRAIGHT up.

    What happens if the Battery Contact Board fails?

    racoon2956 - Contestar

    Be extra careful when tightening down on the interposer. When I powered on upon completion, the battery was not connected. When I opened it back up, I saw that one of the little metal nubs holding the interposer in place had snapped off (the one on the side, not the corner). I was able to carefully tighten the wide head screw back in, watching the alignment, and the battery was successfully recognized. Hopefully the connection holds up.

    Doug Krieger - Contestar

    So something similar happened to me. One the the metal alignment nubs snapped off, and when I went to screw down the interposer it started emitting a burning smell. Do you guys think I fried the board? There doesn’t look to be any visual damage but the computer wont turn on.

    Geremy C -

    Where can I buy a replacement interposer? I may have lost mine in the process of replacing the battery.

    juan.su - Contestar

    I bought an interposer on amazon

    Kris K - Contestar

    I think I snapped off the nub as well, and the battery is not recognized . Replacing the interposer did not help, or trying to align it right. will have to try to replace the battery next.

    Kris K - Contestar

    I really dont understand why to unplug so many parts if the SSD can be easily removed without all this effort. its not even connected to the battery..

    I keep my fingernails fairly long, very handy for many computer repair jobs. This gives me 10 spudgers over which I have very fine muscular control. It is far easier to pop some of these tiny delicate MacBook parts loose with my nails.

    Because it is attached to the battery with a tiny bit of tape near where the spudger is in the picture, this cable should probably be loosened. But it is NOT necessary to remove the speaker entirely.

    Be very careful on this step. If you aren’t you can snap the plastic on the corners where the screws go in. Remember to go slowly when spinning the screws back in, it doesn’t take gorilla torque to tighten them, just take it easy!

    Stacey Deel - Contestar

    The two black screws aren’t both 6.8mm long, one is shorter than the other. The shorter one goes nearest to trackpad

    Spencer - Contestar

    Steps 24-34 are UNNECESSARY for this repair! Removing the adhesive portion of the battery is not required to remove the trackpad. Just lift up the top part of the battery that is screwed in and unplug the trackpad cable.

    bizwfshane - Contestar

    You can use a heat gun to remove the adhesive. Remember you can always add more heat so don’t over do it. I put my heat gun on high for less than 10 seconds at a time

    BRUCEL86 - Contestar

    Using a heat gun on a lithium-ion battery is not a good idea. You can get away with it if you are careful, but a solvent is much safer. ;)

    Can I do this without adhesive remover and just rip off the cells?

    Benoît Mussche - Contestar

    If you use a heat gun be sure to point the heat gun away from the motherboard. After heating for 10 seconds or less use the blunt end of the metal pry tool as you don’t want to puncture the battery. You don’t need much force as after you have enough heat you will hear it unsticking when you pry at it lightly with the BLUNT end of the metal pry tool. Repeat this step on the other side. You don’t need to heat the cells near the motherboard as they are secured with small screws

    This is the most difficult step. The tip of my spudger got bended and the aluminum case damaged it.

    Ahmed Almulhim - Contestar

    I also broke a spudger trying to do this. Eventually I figured out it is easier to go in diagonally from the corner, just to one side of the screw hole, and lever until you hear the adhesive pad tear and give way.

    Matt Sephton - Contestar

    we use a hair dryer and gently blow hot air in between the battery for a good minute before trying to lift it with a spunger. It worked wonderfully! When lifting, just give it constant force upward and you'll hear the battery slowly breaking away from the macbook, and we don't even see glue residues on our macbook at all. Just be patient. :)

    Allen Lin - Contestar

    Just a note to say that the above comments were written before the liquid adhesive remover was added to the guide—you should definitely NOT be breaking any spudgers using the current procedure, which requires very little force. I recommend using plastic cards rather than spudgers—it's pretty easy to slide them under each battery cell and separate the adhesive once the solvent has done its work.

    Jeff Suovanen - Contestar

    This is much easier to do using a plastic card. Just slide the card under the side of the battery and rock it back and forth. The battery will separate pretty quickly with minimal residue.

    lukecparr -

    by a plastic card, do you mean a credit card type thing? thanks in advance.

    During battery replacement take care to position the two left and right battery packs inwards and upwards towards the macbook center such, that there is sufficient space for reinstallation of the two speakers!

    Fred Ziegler - Contestar

    I second Fred’s suggestion. I had to “smoosh” the right speaker in since my battery replacement was a little bit too far over. It was fine, but the “heads up” note is warranted.

    If you're replacing the top case that includes a new battery, can't you skip removal of the battery?

    Albert Zweistein - Contestar

    @Albert: you don’t need to reset the cycles as it is done automatically.

    John Wayne - Contestar

    When you are at this step and before you put the new battery in, take the time to clean your computer really well. You will be surprised how much dust/dirt and even pet hairs have gotten into your computer. After I removed the battery, I use a little more of the acetone to clean the bays up and after it dried, I used a tiny bit of Isopropyl Alcohol to make sure there was a good clean area for the new bonding. Make sure you clean the fans. Don’t use a toothbrush or anything like that. If your have a Lowes or Home Depot, you can buy a shop vac attachment kit for about $20, it’s well worth it. Don’t use that air in a can crap, it will put moisture on circuits. Take your time, it’s not a hard task to do everything, just use a little patience.

    thanks to everyone for the helpful comments along with this really good tick list of things to do. The main thing I have learned is, I don’t have the patience to do this so I am taking my macbook pro (early 2013) 90 odd miles to my nearest Apple store with a Genuis bar. They can sort it for me. They might charge a lot to do it, but at least it will be them risking messing the process up not me! Thanks again.

    Really well done on this. I followed it to a T. Perfect. Thank you for all your work on this.

    I wouldn’t have thought to drain my old battery! (Which means I cannot begin my ‘new battery install’ until later today.

    Andrew Goldberg - Contestar

    Hi all,

    After installing the new batteries, my mac is not powering up… Do i need to charge the battery first and then check again? Have anyone faced similar issue before?

    My 1st battery from ifixit came out to be defective and it caused fire at the centre of the long battery. I have got a replacement for the defective piece which i have installed now. However, now i am worried that connecting to power could lead to any potential fire / harm to my mac???

    Already i have spent lot of time in this and it would be very upsetting if this battery spoils my mac!!!

    Any suggestion people???? thanks in advance!

    BR,

    Vijay

    My Macbook Pro late 2012 battery is swollen. All 6 cells are. I noticed it when I replaced the cooler paste using your excellent guide.

    This Macbook has become a desktop Mac, I don’t carry it around much anymore. Can I just remove the old battery, dispose of it in appropriate channel and use my Macbook Pro without battery always on power cable? This will also increase ventilation. Or will the Macbook Pro refuse to start up in the absence of the battery? I remember this worked on the white Macbook back in the days.

    Benoît Mussche - Contestar

    Hi All,

    Just replaced battery, and am typing this on the live MacBook. The unit fired up as soon as I plugged in the power adapter. Nice. The battery percentage indicator said the battery had approximately 85% power charge. Is this normal? If not, what steps should I take to ensure that this battery is properly calibrated?

    Cheers,

    James

Followed this guide step by step. Very comprehensive and accurate. I would never have dared disconnect the speakers if this guide didn't show me how.

One point though. The lower left and right speaker screws had some metallic sponge on top of them. I wouldn't have known there were screws underneath.

wayne - Contestar

Excellent guide. I'm a repair technician who works on both PCs and Macs. This was my first rMBP battery replacement and I wasn't sure what to expect. For those experienced with electronics repairs, I'd say this is a relatively easy repair with the exception of releasing the adhesive which holds the battery cells to the case. I was eventually able to do it with a spudger and some elbow grease, but I was worried at times that I was going to puncture the battery. Apple really needs to dial back the strength of adhesive they use for these applications. They are clearly making it as difficult as possible for the average user to attempt, which IMO may end up costing them well informed and thoughtful customers. This setup is similar to the iPhone 6 battery (which I actually did puncture with a spudger the first time I removed one) albeit more involved to remove. In the case of the iPhone, a few minutes on the hot plate loosens it right up but this isn't really feasible in the case of the rMBP.

nick - Contestar

Thanks for this guide, I had a faulty battery and replacement by apple would be 400 euro. Now I did it myself with a replica battery for 80 euro.

Tip on prying loose the battery at step 24 and on: Use an old credit card. That worked very well for me.

roelofk - Contestar

Old Credit card works very well on Step 24. Excellent guide.

Tiny AIM - Contestar

I recommend to skip step 14 ( pry the left speaker cable connector up off from its socket on the logic board). The risk of damaging the socket is very high. There is even a warning in this guide (Be sure you are prying up on the connector, not the socket itself!).

Proceed from 13 to 15 and 16 to remove the right speaker. Still with the connector in place you can put the speaker a bit aside and have enough room to remove the battery packs in the steps later.

Same for left speaker and its connector cable (step 18).

Hint by @roelofk with old credit card is very helpful.

Excellent description and excellent pictures. Thx

Stefan Duckwitz - Contestar

Apple should not put Adhesive most specially the time you spent to remove it. Its easy but it takes time cause the adhesive is like a glue, If somebody

read this the tactic is borrow a Hair drier from your wife and heat this Bad Battery really hot and start inserting the Plastic or whatever you have underneath the Battery slowly. Apple should just put some kind of anti static foam so its easy to remove in no time theres cover anyway that foam will keep it from moving period thats it.

ricofamor - Contestar

Excellent guide, it worked very well for me, the parts and tools I purchased here made this job easy and a pleasure! Getting the batteries unstuck from their glue is the hardest part for sure, just patience and proper tools and it doesn't take too long though. Thank you so much!

Peter Weldon - Contestar

Excellent guide, but PLEASE consider changing the reported difficulty to medium (iFixit, if that's not something the author can do). The process is actually super easy, but just takes over an hour to do.

I nearly didn't do it myself after realising it was rated the same difficulty as an SSD/HDD change in an iMac (with which I cracked my screen in two places), but it isn't. This is about a 2/10 difficulty level, and that's about 9/10.

I just think it would be a shame if the reported difficulty dissuaded people from doing it, and wasted hundreds of dollars paying Apple to do it. If you can read, and have the equivalent dexterity of tying shoelaces, you can do this. :)

Also, the battery removal is a pain, but if you cut an old credit card down the middle, you have two "spudgers" you can use underneath in a turning motion (sort of like rotating a lever in-plane), while pulling it in and out. A bit of patience and you'll get each half out in about 5 minutes.

LongTimeMacUser - Contestar

Great manual! Thanks a lot. I do agree with @longtimemacuser tough, difficulty level was discouraging me. Once I read all the steps, I thought I could do it and I did it and it worked! So I believe this difficult level should be medium, it's not hard (expect for the battery adhesive), it just take a long time to do it.

rennerassis - Contestar

I had a water incident with my wife's Macbook Pro. After drying the machine it would startup on power but the battery was toast. It said the battery needed replacing. Went through this battery replacement procedure - agree with the posts above that it's not as difficult as I was expecting based on the difficulty level.

Incidentally - after battery replacement the battery charged once then after that the machine wouldn't boot at all. I eventually went through this procedure a second time then removed the logic board and the i/o board and liberally cleaned both with a 99.9% isopropyl alcohol bath. Reassembled all the components and everything works great. I assume this was due to some residual water damage and the cleaning seemed to do the trick.

Kids got a new spill resistant chromebook new and the wife's Macbook Pro is happy again.

Rand Bell - Contestar

Just replaced battery + wifi module.

Thanks a lot!

Weichen Zhao - Contestar

This was much easier than expected, and the MBP is keeping a charge just like when I pulled it out of the box 4 years ago. Like was said before, this might be the step below "difficult" unless you've got the coordination of an elephant on stilts. Thanks for the guide!

Adam Sharrow - Contestar

Very clear instructions, I followed them carefully and everything worked out fine! It was quite easy, actually.

I only improvised by using my nail polish remover (acetone) as an alternative to adhesive remove, worked as expected though :)

Margarida Dinis - Contestar

Been repairing Apple laptops on a regular basis for about 17 years now but this was my first ‘Retina Battery Adventure.’ As a long-experienced Apple tech, this really isn’t a very hard job. Just use the adhesive remover very carefully. It does all the hard work.

I bought iFixit’s ‘kit’, which turned out to be a great value; the replacement battery along with a spudger, precision tweezers, a syringe, a super-precision nozzle (for the syringe), small jar of adhesive remover (I think it’s just Acetone nail polish remover ), gloves, pry tool and pry pick, two pry cards, eye protection… oh, and a tool handle like the one in my iFixit universal toolkit, along with all the screwdriver bits required for the repair.

With all the extra pry tools and stuff, it looked like prep for a journey to the center of the earth or somethin’.... And hey, I was NOT disappointed when the job turned out to be waaay easier than implied by all the extra tooling. A nice collection of extra stuff for my kit! I now have two spudgers.

Wow.

clinton - Contestar

Did all of you remove the battery with adhesive remover or can i eventually just remove it with a credit card?

Or - as right now there isn’t any repair kit with the adhesive remover available - can I use a different adhesive remover than the one from ifixit?

John Snow - Contestar

The adhesive is just acetone….

Henrik Fricke - Contestar

I just successfully replaced my battery. I used pure acetone from the pharmacy to “melt” the glue. Afterwards you can easily (but carefully) remove it with a credit card (or similar).

John Wayne - Contestar

Easy to follow guide. Tip: Install new battery AND re-install the speakers at the same time

Rich Sammon - Contestar

Wonderfully comprehensive and easy to follow. I was able to remove the old battery and install a new one in around 1 hour. Take your time, read all of the instructions and look at all of the images a couple of times before starting. I separated all of the screws and labeled them so reassembly was a snap. Huge thanks to the author and to this site for offering the parts and detailed guide! My Mac is like new again.

Craig Temple - Contestar

I did this battery replacement this morning. If you follow the excellent instructions and take your time this is not very difficult. One thing that wasn’t covered is that the replacement battery comes attached to a piece of plexiglass to aid in the positioning of the 5 pieces of the battery. The quality control on the positioning was not perfect on mine - I had to detach half and position, then place the other half. The placement of the replacement is not covered in the instructions - but isn’t very difficult.

I recommend getting the full kit - it was complete and made the replacement go easier. My new replacement is charging to 97% and has a capacity of 6358 mAh. This is almost 1000mAh more than my original battery was reporting! My old battery was only lasting an hour, this one is reporting 4+ hours.

Thanks! Great documentation and a solid kit.

GeoffC - Contestar

Thank you for a great guide! I was a bit worried about this, as it was rated Difficult, but it was not bad at all. I have been working on computers for many years, but had never cracked this model of MBP. My 13-year old daughter assisted me with the “transplant”, and all went well. (She has repaired a few iPhones for friends.) My old battery was only lasting a little over two hours, and I hope I have a significant increase in charge time with this new battery. Changing the battery took us about two hours, the longest amount of time was dealing with the adhesive. We found that the card provided worked better than the spudger, and the cloths in the kit were perfect for getting the remaining adhesive off after removing the battery. My daughter got to learn a new skill, and is confident that she could replace the battery in her MBP.

Charlotte Seehafer - Contestar

Zunächst mal großes Erlebnis, wenn das Paket mit all dem passenden Werkzeug und dem Akku ankommt. Alles hervorragende Qualität. Mal abwarten, ob der Akku hält, was er verspricht.

Die Anleitung ist sehr gut geschrieben, allerdings klappte der Akkuwechsel wesentlich leichter, als angekündigt. Hier ist keine Zauberei erforderlich. Nur gute Vorbereitung. Was Sinn macht: Ein Foto vom offenen Laptop machen, auf DIN a 4 ausdrucken, dann kann man die Schrauben immer an die richtige Stelle legen (am besten mit Klebeband fixieren, zB. den PRITT-Roller).

Stellt Euch einen Staubsauger zur Seite mit weicher Bürste. So könnt Ihr sehr vorsichtig die Berge an angesammeltem Staub entfernen, die sich im Gerät abgelagert haben.

Ich würde einen Hinweis begrüßen, dass die Akkus beim Einbau möglichst nah an den inneren Rand eingesetzt werden, um den Einbau der Lautsprecher zu erleichtern, die sind sonst sehr unter Spannung.

Ach ja: Der Akku wird dank eigener Platine als neuer Akku erkannt und die Anzahl Ladezyklen mit 1 angegeben.

Christian F. - Contestar

Installation went great, but now my Mac isn’t recognizing the new battery. It doesn’t hold a charge and will shut off if not plugged in. Can anyone help/elaborate on this?! Also, I already reset the SMC…

Amanda Tautges - Contestar

You can find a few things to try in this thread: New replacement battery for MacBook Pro not recognised. Good luck!

Jeff Suovanen -

This is a clear and very comprehensive guide. Just finished changing the battery to my computer.

Thank you Sam Lionheart and Ifixit, could not have done it without you. Love my IFIXIT tools!!

maria longo - Contestar

Brilliant guide. Great job - the repair was flawless. Old battery was at 5500 mAh capacity - now up to 6699 mAh!!!!!

It took me about 3 hours, because I spent a lot of time cleaning as I went. First time it was opened since 2014.

Nabil Freeman - Contestar

The instructions were very good. I was able to replace the battery using this guide. One tip is to have little cups for the small parts you remove in each step and number them with the step. When you go to put it back, you just have to look at the step number and corresponding picture you will know exactly where it goes. This will save you time from hunting for them, especially the very small ones.

AJM - Contestar

Great guide, replaced my battery in no time without any problems. Shame the Ifixit battery I bought now only has about 60% capacity after 4 of use months and 12 recharge cycles. Says Service battery again!

Scott Moncrieff - Contestar

Hi Scott,

The battery should definitely last more than that. Try calibrating the battery following the instructions below. If that doesn’t solve the issue, contact our support and we will help resolve the issue!

For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery: Charge it to 100% and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Then use your device until it shuts off due to low battery. Finally, charge it uninterrupted to 100%.

Arthur Shi -

Great guide! Thank you for publishing - just followed this to fix the battery on my mom’s computer! She loves it.
