    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.

  2. Usa tus dedos a modo de palanca para levantar la tapa inferior del cuerpo del MacBook por la zona del ventilador. Extrae la tapa inferior.
    • Usa tus dedos a modo de palanca para levantar la tapa inferior del cuerpo del MacBook por la zona del ventilador.

    • Extrae la tapa inferior.

  3. 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.

  4. Dobla el cabre de la batería ligeramente para alejarlo de su conexión en la placa madre para evitar que se conecte accidentalmente mientras trabajas.
    • 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

  5. Remueve los siguientes dos tornillos:
    • Remueve los siguientes dos tornillos:

    • Un tornillo Tri-punto de 5.6 mm.

    • Un tornillo Tri-punto de 13 mm.

    Something isn’t right here. On my MacBook Pro, the connector is an integral part of the battery.

    Verify that this is the correct guide for your specific model—if not, we’ve got guides for all the other models, too.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    And which Apple “Genius” decided that a tri-wing screw would be just perfect for the job of holding the batter in place? Not smart for a genius.

    Jerry South - Contestar

    These tri-point screws are Y0 size. You’re welcome :)

  6. Con cuidado remueve la etiqueta de aviso de la batería de la caja superior entre la batería y la unidad óptica.
    • Con cuidado remueve la etiqueta de aviso de la batería de la caja superior entre la batería y la unidad óptica.

    • No remuevas la etiqueta de la batería.

    What is the reasoning behind not removing the label from the (old) battery?

    tom - Contestar

    Probably to help you remove it? Not sure, but I used it along with the clear tab to pull the battery out. Worked pretty good.

  7. Utiliza la lengüeta de plástico adjunta para remover la batería de la caja superior.
    • Utiliza la lengüeta de plástico adjunta para remover la batería de la caja superior.

    • Si estás instalando una batería nueva, debes calibrarla luego de la instalación.

    • Cárgala hasta el 100% y luego sigue cargándola durante al menos 2 horas más. Luego, desenchúfala y úsala normalmente para drenar la batería. Cuando veas la advertencia de batería baja, guarda tu trabajo y mantén tu laptop encendida hasta que se duerma. Espera al menos 5 horas, luego cárgala de forma ininterrumpida hasta 100%.

    • Si observas alguna conducta inusual o algún problema luego de instalar tu batería nueva, podrías tener que reiniciar la SMC de tu MacBook

    My replacement battery came with a clear protective film that should be removed before installation. Be sure not to overlook the film on the bottom of the battery as it covers only a portion of that side and might be easy to overlook.

    Do not over-tighten the bolts holding the battery in place. One of the tabs on the original battery was broken, presumably due to over-tightening.

    Patrick Langvardt - Contestar

    The calibration suggestion given in this guide differs a bit from what iFIXIT sent with the battery. What came with the battery went like this…

    For optimal performance, calibrate your newly installed battery. Drain battery below 10%, then charge it uninterrupted to 100%.

    Daniel Lavelle - Contestar

    I recommend disregarding those instructions and following the steps in this article:

    1. Charge it to 100%, and keep charging it for at least two more hours.

    2. Unplug your laptop and use it normally to drain the battery.

    3. Save your work when you see the low battery warning.

    4. Keep your laptop on until it goes to sleep due to low battery.

    5. Wait at least five hours, then charge your laptop uninterrupted to 100%.

    Sam Omiotek -

    would it be dangerous to use the macbook without a battery in the meantime?

    724 F - Contestar

    It’s not dangerous (assuming you have put the back cover back on), though the computer will run slower. The charging assembly cannot supply as much amperage as the battery, so the processor will be throttled.

    Sam Omiotek -

I thought these batteries couldn't be replaced.

brucebridges - Contestar

These batteries are built to the same spec as OEM (Apple)

They are just not "user friendly" to replace like most devices are, the price we pay for pretty devices.

This guide is excellent and now I know I need 1 more tool before I do this myself. I need that tri-wing screwdriver.

John Lang -

Anyone know of any batteries with a larger capacity that could fit this?

Anrothan - Contestar

It seems that there are no true larger capacity batteries for this Macbook. Ones that claim higher capacity are usually of dubious quality.

coffee -

Clear, well written instructions, thank you! (But yes, a line about take off shoes and socks and ground yourself is helpful. )

unlvkatherine - Contestar

Warning: if you have not used this MBP for a while, check how it does look like.

I kept mine for backwards compatibility (such as Rosetta and old FireWire). I cleaned up my drawer today.

See how it looked like today: http://666kb.com/i/do60coz0kn5z5txd5.jpg

The battery was most severely blown up, crashing the body shell. I’m glad it did not burn the house to ashes.

Martin - Contestar

Wow! On your Picture we see the original battery from Apple! Yes?

Mario -

I just replaced my battery, and had no issues. Great instruction manual, and easy to do.

Christopher Chupp - Contestar

Thank you very much. it was a great help. till now i thought it required an expert. thanks again.

richard - Contestar

Where should I discard the old battery?

Tamara - Contestar

It happened to me too! i’ll try to calibrate the battery as apple says https://support.apple.com/es-es/HT1490

Luís - Contestar

I replaced the battery, and it was very easy. The problem lies in fact that my laptop will only run for about 20 minutes then shuts down. I put the old battery back in and it is working fine. Is this a defective battery?

Bill Hicks - Contestar

I have the same problem, posted above. Searched the web for possible solutions without success. Let me know if you’ve found one.

Csaba Kátai -

Same here. I am in the process of letting it die down from the first full charge and it does a hard shutdown every 20 minutes.

brodystewart30 -

Looks like I might be having a similar issue. I’ve just received and installed a new battery from iFixit and the MacBook is shutting down abruptly anywhere from 5-30 minutes after switching to battery power. I’ve tried resetting PRAM/SMC/removing, checking connections and remove/replace the battery several times. This typically results in orange magsafe light, battery is detected correctly and it’s charging. Then after some time the magsafe the light goes green, battery is no longer charging and cononut battery shows NaN on battery capacitor indicator. I reinstalled the old battery and everything works fine - of course I have the original problem of diminished capacity which is why I replaced it. If several people are having similar issues I wonder if it’s a bad batch of batteries?

Colm -

Just installed the 2nd new iFixit battery. Exactly the same issue, abrupt shut down after approx. 20 mins. (Formatting the battery is a painful process...) Might be a faulty batch of batteries. From the earlier positive comments I guess this problem has been experienced recently, so, maybe Apple did something in Mojave?

Csaba Kátai -

Replaced the battery with this guide. Seemed to work at first, but the macbook sometimes suddenly switches off or doesn‘t start anymore. Resetting SMC/PRAM works only for a short time, bevore the Macbook does again what it wants. Any suggestions?

t.wurmehl - Contestar

No suggestions. Seemingly many of us who made battery replacement experience the same. I’ve tried already two iFixit batteries. Same issues. Abrupt shutdown while on battery, battery reported N/A by the system, not charging while at e.g. 60%, etc. SMC solves the problems for 20-30 minutes only.

Csaba Kátai -

Hi folks of iFixit. I really like to fix things by myself, but it should work afterwards. So I immediately need an answer to the questions above. I have the same problems with a sudden shutdown after a short while even in process . That is really annoying in most of the times. The replacement is very easy, even with the good instruction, so pease give a statement.

stefanberger1963 - Contestar

I have the some problem too! My question is: the iFixit team what says? I think my money is good, why not my battery? What iFixit answer?

Marco - Contestar

I took contact to iFixit EU Support <eustore@ifixit.com>. I got a quick answer and after a short while I got another batterie. This batterie runs good for now, so I hope everything is fine now. So try to contact the support.

stefanberger1963 - Contestar

Very easy replacement, must faster than other stuff I’ve swapped out in my Mac. Super straightforward guide. Thanks!

Samik - Contestar

Very easy process. Thanks for the tips about the screw lining up with the bevels and noting that there are different screws that need to be returned in the same location they came from on the back!

Mark Delany - Contestar

Thanks for the guide, Daedalus Tested, Tek Approved!

mrit - Contestar

The only thing you should mention is the size of the screw head, that would be helpful.

Marshall WahlstromHelgren - Contestar

This is a really simple change, even for a novice, so a great guide. The battery that I bought included the required screwdrivers, to that was cool too :)

Michael W - Contestar

nach dem tausch des Akkus schaltet sich der Mac immer wieder plötzlich aus. Also er versetzt sich in den Ruhezustand. Jemand eine Idee wie man das beheben könnte?

s.kostjukevic - Contestar

Apparently, my local apple store is not able to replace the battery in my MBP from mid 2012. I asked them if it was possible to replace it by myself. They replied that the battery is attached to the keyboard, and that it therefore is not possible to replace it (since Apple do no longer provide parts for this model). Does anyone know anything about this? Should I buy the battery from iFixit and give it a try?
