My sincere thanks! Smooth as silk. You all rock!!! Thank you!
My current battery had 778 cycles on it...and it drained incredibly fast...and would shut down at 30%. I knew that a battery replacement would make such a difference.
Repair went smoothly.... instructions were spot on....and the kit worked very very well. Loved the photos. Was actually not as hard as I thought it would be. That little piece of tape that covers the battery connectors...didn't have too much stick to it... putting it back... but it held long enough to close up the Mac. Overall... really happy with it. It's a journey... but not a bad one at all.
Definitely use a vent when working with the solvent to get the batteries. I use a try with lots of different compartments.. in order... to help me keep track of which screws to use next... just working backwards....
Just take your time...and use a light touch.
