    • Tres tornillos Phillips #00 de 14.4 mm

    • Tres tornillos Phillips #00 de 3.5 mm

    • Cuatro tornillos de resalto Phillips #00 de 3.5 mm

    • Al reemplazar los tornillos pequeños, alinéalos en perpendicular a la suave curvatura de la carcasa (no van perfectamente en vertical hacia abajo).

    How much weight can I save by removing the optical drive?

    gunes314 - Contestar

    You can save a lot of weight if lets say your installing a solid state drive or putting in a second hard drive but if you know that you use the CD/DVD disc drive a lot then you might just want to leave the drive alone.

    Marshall WahlstromHelgren -

    Tip: Use one of those weekday pill holders to have a cheep way to store screws you remove and each day of the week can be for different sizes or parts. It has been handy to have (much less expensive than the magnetic mat.

    Robert Wacker - Contestar

    Hello, where can I buy the screws I need in case I lose one of them?

    taylornya - Contestar

    I have one stripped screw... How opening without drill it?! Any suggestions please?

    rodrigosady - Contestar

    I also stripped a couple screws. I wasn’t able to open it up without drilling. After drilling the heads and removing the cover it was easy to hacksaw the tip and unscrew with a standard driver.

    Michael Wilkens -

    My top tip - make sure you buy good quality Phillips screwdrivers and a magnetic holder. Cheap screwdrivers won’t get the screws undone safely. Without a magnetic holder you have no chance of getting the tiny crews in and out safely.

    jeremyyoung - Contestar

    A good Phillips 00 is your friend here. Also, when reinserting the screws, gently start anticlockwise and you wil feel a click at the start of the thread. This tells you you’re in the right place and less likely to cross-thread through force in the wrong place.

    Iain Boyd - Contestar

    I feel like these are 000 screws. Amazon sales describe them as such and my 000 screwdriver fits better

    cam2000deluxe -

    Before ordering a new Trackpad remove the existing battery and try clicking the Trackpad. If it clicks OK with the battery out the source of problem is likely a swollen battery, which should to be replaced even if it still works to some degree. From the side of the battery you will likely see the soft part of the battery bulging beyond the hard case.

    Patrick Langvardt - Contestar

    That’s absolutely correct as I can testify. With the battery removed I also adjusted the T6 set screw that adjusts the sensitivity of the trackpad click, evidently someone had cranked mine down tighter than the factory setting.

    Gary Register -

    Le quatrième paragraphe dans les instructions en français n’est pas correct : ce ne sont pas les 2 petites vis, mais les 7 petites vis qui sont inclinées. Et les 3 grandes sont bien verticales.

    Tip: if you have a magnetic screw mat or similar, lay the macbook over the mat to make sure it catches any screws that may decide to fall of and hide under your table

    • Usa el borde de un spudger para levantar el conector de la batería haciendo palanca para extraer su toma de corriente de la placa madre.

    • Se recomienda hacer palanca en los laterales del conector para extraerlo de su toma de corriente. Ten cuidado con las esquinas de los conectores ya que pueden romperse con facilidad.

    Is this step of removing the battery connector required?

    manodh - Contestar

    yes - as with disassembly of any electronic component you have to remove any power source. You don't want to accidentally turn the Mac on

    khull -

    Prying the battery connector off does not take much force. I did exactly what the guide suggested (walked it off back and forth) with the spudger without any problems. Just be very gentle, much like with anything inside laptops, they are very fragile and need to be worked with carefully. A+ instructions, battery replacement was a success.

    aekinaka - Contestar

    Be patient on disconnecting this one. It worked for me step by step, little by little.

    Phil Wagner - Contestar

    I used the nails of thumb and pointer finger simultaneously - worked pretty fine

    Reinhard Kaune - Contestar

  4. Reemplazo de la pantalla del MacBook Pro 13" Unibody de principios de 2011: paso 4, imagen 1 de 1
    • Dobla el cabre de la batería ligeramente para alejarlo de su conexión en la placa madre para evitar que se conecte accidentalmente mientras trabajas.

    I put some tape between the connector and socket while working on the drive.

    Stephen Smith - Contestar

    That's a good tip

    Anrothan -

    Great tip, I did that too

    Ahmed Mahran -

    One other note: The screw heads fit flush with the curvature of the case -- which means that they aren't exactly horizontal. In other words, they aren't perpendicular to the table that the computer is resting on. Don't try to force them straight in vertically, because you'll risk cross-threading them. (nearly ruined one screw hole myself!)

    lelandjordon - Contestar

    On my MacBook Pro, the connector seems to be an integral part of the battery.

    Jerry South - Contestar

    I suspect it’s just like the special screwdriver required for seatbelts on cars – to discourage regular consumers from attempting repairs. Of course, this only encourages consumers to use the wrong tool to attempt to repairs

    • Usa el borde de un spudger para levantar el conector del cable de cinta del AirPort/Bluetooth de su zócalo en la placa lógica.

    N.B! Thank you very much all you here on iFixit! Some IMPORTANT notes. Be very careful BEFORE prying the connectors up and down. They are very fragile and the picture could actually be seen as showing a bending loading in their weakest direction, AROUND its slender axis. The connector is slender and inserted on the logic board, so the gentle "walking" up and down should be done ALONG their slender direction and WITHOUT touching the adjacent connectors. If bending is done around its axis the soldering comes apart and the cable is done and gone. Just happened. These flat cables are one of the weakest design spots in my experience. They are a major time, money and geist consuming reason for malfunction like Wi-Fi connection problems, HDD, SSD not found internally but externally from USB issues et al being found on different forums. Thanks again and again.

    • Con cuidado tira del cable de la camara y sácalo de su zócalo en la placa lógica.

    • Tira del cable paralelamente a la cara de la placa lógica. Tirar hacia arriba puede dañar la placa lógica o el mismo cable.

    Be extremely careful on step 6 with late 2011 model unibody macbooks! The cable is connected very tightly to the board and has a great chance of ripping if you just pull the cable.

    Tim Rauls - Contestar

    My cable is broken, have the part number or code to buy?

    VÍCTOR RIFFO - Contestar

    I found there was plenty of length in the camera cable (as it goes around two sides of the optical drive) so does not need to be disconnected - just ease it out of the slot alongside the drive and lay it diagonally across.

    • Mueve con cuidado el cable de cinta AirPort/Bluetooth fuera del camino cuando despegas el adhesivo que sujeta el cable de la cámara al subwoofer y al soporte del AirPort/Bluetooth.

    • Desvía el cable de la cámara desde debajo del dedo de retención moldeado en el soporte AirPort/Bluetooth.

    Take a few phone close-ups of this corner of your system prior to disassembly. Extra photos really help during reassembly.

    • Usa la punta de una espátula para levantar y desconectar el cable de la antena de su zócalo en la placa del AirPort/Bluetooth.

    • Deruta el cable de la antena y sácalo de debajo del dedo moldeado en el soporte del AirPort/Bluetooth.

    • Usando el método descrito en el último paso, desconecta los tres conectores restantes de la antena.

    • Desvíe sus cables de las ranuras cortadas en el soporte AirPort/Bluetooth.

    I found re-attaching these antennae connectors the trickiest bit by far as they appear very delicate and seating them correctly was fiddly. In the end lighting them from the side with a small torch helped to check their position before gently pushing them down. The first one made a clicking sound as it connected, the other two went on silently. MBP wifi working perfectly now. I’m fairly sure that was at least £100 of labour had I taken it in for repair so thanks ifixit for saving me money and for the warm glow of accomplishment!

    Andrew - Contestar

    Actually, on my repair attempt, one antenna cable broke (on the image the bottom right one in the red square), I’m not sure whether it broke already before or was morbid somehow. Fact is. suddenly I had this cable in my fingers, and was sure I completely broke the macbook and need to find a new display now.

    But as it turned out: the Mac is still fully working, including WIFI, BT, Camera etc. So apart from my huge relief, I want to address that these cables may break easily at their connection with the display. And that one antenna might be not mandatory for WIFI to work.

    • Quita los siguientes cinco tornillos:

    • Dos tornillos Philips de 10.3 mm

    • Dos tornillos Philips de 3.1 mm

    • Un tornillo Philips de 5 mm

  11. Reemplazo de la pantalla del MacBook Pro 13" Unibody de principios de 2011: paso 11, imagen 1 de 1
    • Tira del montaje del AirPort/Bluetooth y del Subwoofer hacia arriba cerca del centro del lado de la unidad óptica hasta que ambos se separen.

  12. Reemplazo de la pantalla del MacBook Pro 13" Unibody de principios de 2011: paso 12, imagen 1 de 1
    • Quita el montaje del AirPort/Bluetooth, teniendo en cuenta el frágil contacto de la antena cerca de la esquina de la carcasa superior.

  13. Reemplazo de la pantalla del MacBook Pro 13" Unibody de principios de 2011, Pantalla: paso 13, imagen 1 de 1
    • Quita dos de los tres tornillos Torx T8 de 6 mm que sujetan el lado derecho de la pantalla a la carcasa superior.

    • Tenemos que dejar a propósito un tornillo sujetando la pantalla a la carcasa superior para ayudar en futuros pasos.

    • Agarra la pestaña de tiro de plástico sujeta al seguro del cable de datos de la pantalla y gíralo hacia el lado del conector DC-In del ordenador.

    • Tira del cable de datos de la pantalla de manera recta fuera de su zócalo en la placa lógica.

    • No levantes el cable de datos de la pantalla, ya que su zócalo es muy frágil. Tira del cable en dirección paralela a la cara de la placa lógica.

    This was the hardest part for me. It took me a bit to figure out what parts were the socket and which was the cable and where were they going to separate. What I did was gently twist the pull tab on the cable in a clockwise direction. This allowed me to see a small separation between the socket and cable. At that point I knew what side of the pull tab I had to use a little pressure on, to continue to wiggle the cable free.

    Eric Olson’s comment helped me a lot. I couldn’t figure out how to go about it until I read his comment. Thanks

    • Quita los siguientes dos tornillos:

    • Un tornillo Philips de 8.6 mm

    • Un tornillo Philips de 5.5 mm

    • Quita el retén del cable de datos de la pantalla de la carcasa superior.

    When putting the display case back together, I found it MUCH easier to reinsert the display cable before screwing back in the data cable retainer. It did require me angling my screwdriver to get the rightmost screw in, but it was not too difficult. It certainly made it much easier to reinsert the display cable since I had more freedom to maneuver it back into position. Hope this help others. God Bless!

    • Quita dos de los tres tornillos Torx T8 de 6 mm que sujetan el lado izquierdo de la pantalla a la carcasa superior.

    • Te hemos hecho dejar a propósito un tornillo sujetando la pantalla a la carcasa superior para ayudar en los pasos siguientes.

  18. Reemplazo de la pantalla del MacBook Pro 13" Unibody de principios de 2011: paso 18, imagen 1 de 1
    • Abre tu MacBook Pro dejando la pantalla en perpendicular con la carcasa superior.

    • Coloca tu MacBook Pro en una mesa como se indica en la foto.

    • Mientras sujetas la pantalla y la carcasa superior juntas con tu mano izquierda, quita el tornillo Torx T8 restante del soporte inferior de la pantalla.

    I have found that keeping the MacBook more open than you’d think is the key to getting this step right. Initially I opened the lid only about 50º or so, but couldn’t free the hinges from the case even after removing the final two screws. Opening the lid to about 90º has made this much easier, and means the hinges come free without catching on the rest of the body of the Mac.

    • Agarra la caja superior con la mano derecha y gírala ligeramente hacia la parte superior de la pantalla para que el soporte de la pantalla superior pueda salir del borde de la caja superior.

    • Gira la pantalla un poco alejándola de la caja superior.

    • Saca la pantalla hacia arriba de la caja superior, teniendo en cuenta los soportes o cables que puedan quedar atrapados.

    I used this guide to tighten the hinges; screen was all wobbly because the four screws that hold the screen in place had worked themselves loose. Surprised that getting at the screws required the full removal of the display. One thing that's helpful in putting it all together is in regard to adjusting the position of the hinges; with the screws loose, there is a lot of play in the hinges, and if you just torque them down, the lid won't fit right. I snugged up the screws then put the display back in place on the body & inserted one screw into each side, then loosened the hinge screws to align the screen. That has to happen before replacing the black plastic cover over the bottom edge of the display.

    davidgthornton - Contestar

    My Macbook Pro developed a severe wobble in the display so I took it in to the Genius bar to see what could be done. They told me that fixing it would involve replacing the whole display because the problem is due to a piece of plastic inside breaking off. I suspected it just needed to have the hinge screws tightened so I brought my laptop home and gave it a go using this guide. Well, it turns out I was right! The Torx screws joining the hinges to the the display had come loose at both sides. To fix this, I got the hinges lined up straight on the display and tightened them down. To attatch the hinges to the body, I tightened one screw on each side half way and closed the display to line it up with the body. I then proceeded then to tighten all of the Torx screws on the body. Thank you for the great guide, Philip! I love this site!

    gilded yak - Contestar

    Might be a dumb question but can I swap screens from a broken MacBook Pro to the my working one (both same model)

    Manny 3s - Contestar

    Yes, you can

    maccentric -

    When separating the display, be crazy careful with those tiny WiFi antenna wires you undid in step 9. One of mine came apart with almost no force whatsoever. If you do break one, reroute them when reassembling so that ports J0 and J2 on the Airport card have good connections. That’ll retain your laptop’s ability to connect to 5GHz WiFi if you’re unable to replace the entire antenna assembly.

    Taylor Rhodes - Contestar

    I’ve made the replacement following each step, everything went well except when I turn on the Mac, I can see light in the screen it actually starts all clear in white light, but then it gets dark. The computer is working well I use a external monitor connected with a HDMI adaptor, but the Macbook monitor just doesn’t work, I checked the Flex cable, it is working good, camera, sound, wifi, everything.

    I don’t know what else to try. Could it be possible I just broke the mother board connection with the LCD?? Please help!

Note that the 2011 version differs from previous models at the connectors on the antenna end opposite to the display cable. Do not attempt to buy a complete display from prior models.

khull - Contestar

Although this guide a difficulty rating I wasn't sure how long it would take a fairly adept novice to complete the R&R of the display. I took my time and did the tear down in 1 hour. I separated the fasteners by placing each section on a loop of tape above the work. The replacement of the new display took me about 2 hours. As the guide says it was just the tear down in reverse. Things that added to the replacement were getting the first 2 screws aligned and in place; re-routing the antenna and camera cables and making sure the camera cable socket connector was in correctly. The good news is it worked on the first power-up. Great guide.

Bob G - Contestar

Can I use a 2011 Display with a 2009 (mid) MacBook pro?

Simon - Contestar

Unfortunately no, they are not interchangeable.

Sam Omiotek -

Does the display come with the back cover included. I don't know the correct name for the part. I just mean the silver cover with the apple thingy in it.

Andrea Beck - Contestar

No but you can buy that piece from PowerBook medic it is called the display housing

sean gyimah -

Is it possible to install a retina display screen on my early 2011 macbookPro Unibody?

Thanks!

Uri Shilo - Contestar

No, it is not a reasonable possibility to install a retina display on a non-retina MacBook. The assemblies are very different.

Lance J -

Great guide. Snagged an A- used from eBay for $150, December 2016 and installed in about 45 minutes. Thanks.

ericmatthew86 - Contestar

I used this guide to fix my Early 2011 MacBook Pro's wobbly screen. I took it into the Apple store, where a Genius took a look under the hood and told me the "Clutch is snapped," and that not only would it cost ~$500 to fix, but because the laptop is so old Apple won't do repairs anymore for it. When I took it apart, I could see that just a tiny part of the black plastic mechanism underneath the clutch cover was broken which did contribute to the wobble. I tightened the hinge screws and used Threadlocker Blue on them, and then used an automotive adhesive from Ace Hardware on the broken plastic piece. The wobble is gone and my MacBook is now fully functional once again!

Drew Dittmann - Contestar

I used this guide to tighten a loose display, and it worked great. The guide is very thorough, so if you follow it step by step you should have no problem. The hardest part was disconnecting the display cable from the socket on the board. Other than that go slow, take your time, and you should be fine.

Eric Olson - Contestar
