    I skipped the step (6c) of prying the audio out ribbon cable connector board off the hard drive bracket (& disconnecting it), since it doesn't come off real easily, and I didn't want to damage it. It only requires a little more care when removing the HD from it's bracket if you skip step 6c.

    This is not necessary and looks pretty risky too.

    Agreed, I encountered no issues when I skipped this on a Rev.B model.

    • Utilisez un spudger pour débrancher le connecteur de la nappe du disque dur de la carte mère.

    Reversing step 8 is where I ran into trouble. The replacement fan I had was slightly thicker than the original and caused the ZIF cable to work its way out of the tenuous connection it had to the SSD, resulting in a "?" missing boot drive error upon startup. Took me three tries to get it right! The difficulty is to get the drive connector to the logic board to reach and seat without pulling the other end out of the drive.

    There is a cable glued to the diskframe that must be loosened with a spudger before you can remove the frame.

    • Les deux versions distinctes de MacBook Air ont des connecteurs de disque dur différents. Le non-respect de l'action appropriée à votre machine endommagera votre disque dur ! Faites très attention lorsque vous débranchez la nappe du disque dur. Les connecteurs ZIF sont fragiles.

    • Si vous avez le MacBook Air d'origine (A1237), utilisez un spudger ou vos pouces pour ouvrir le clapet de retenue de la nappe EN DIRECTION DE la nappe (voir la photo 1).

    • Si vous avez la version A1304 de MacBook Air, utilisez un spudger ou vos pouces pour ouvrir le clapet de retenue de la nappe DANS L'AUTRE DIRECTION (voir la photo 2).

    • Tirez la nappe du disque dur tout droit hors de sa prise.

    Hi, I've a A1304 hardware configuration (24-pin cable) and recently I've bought an SSD which uses an A1237 hard drive connector's (40-pin cable). If I buy this diferent cable can I use it without major problems?

    • Si vous installez un nouveau disque dur, nous disposons d'un tutoriel d'installation OS X pour l'installation.

    • Si vous le souhaitez, transférez la mousse de votre disque dur actuel sur le nouveau. La mousse se détache avec un spudger et un peu de patience.

    • Il existe deux options pour lire des CD et des DVD sur un MacBook Air : soit acheter un SuperDrive externe, soit utiliser une fonction Apple appelée Remote Disc. Celle-ci permet d'emprunter le lecteur optique d'un Mac voisin pour lire un disque sur le MacBook Air.

It is not necessary to remove the battery. The hard drive can easily be reached while the battery is in place, although you have a little bit more space if you do remove the battery.

It probably is a good idea to unplug the battery before replacing the hard drive, so you do not accidentally short-circuit anything.

My hard drive replacement (a Mach Xtreme Nano PATA ZIF 120GB SSD) actually went in the other way up from the stock Apple Drive. ie The ZIF connector is seen when put back together, rather than under the drive as is the case with the Apple Drive (as seen in Steps 10&11). This also meant the cable came up past the drive on the inside of the bracket then to the mother board. I had tried several times the same way as the Apple drive was, and the cable kept being pulled out of the ZIF connector when putting it back together. Luckily this did not damage my drive.

Charlie - Réponse

I cannot tell you how thankful I am for your comment. I bought exactly the same SSD and spent the better part of today trying to get the computer to see it in Disk Utility. I tried everything (at least I thought so!), tweaking the ZIF cable, resetting the rubber bumper, and so on. Must have done ten or more restarts to no avail. The only thing I didn't do was turn the drive upside down! Thank you so much!

SERIOUSLY. 2 hours trying to figure out WHY it wouldn't work, THANK YOU CHARLIE. YEARS LATER.

This guide was very helpful and accurate for our A1304 Air, I have commented/adjusted the guide to give some extra info which I felt was missing, useful for identifying the correct model/revision and related replacement part.

I fitted a RunCore 128GB SSD to our A1304 (Revision B) Air, it was easy enough and works exactly as we hoped! The A1304 (Revision B) model Air has a LIF connector. RunCore have different SSD products for the different Air revisions, it would be easy to order the wrong part, so be sure you you what modle/revision of Air you're working on!

Read the guide in full for, for all the details.

I think the hard drive connector cables for the A1237 & A1304 are different. I purchased a Samsung 120GB (HS12UHE/A) and the cable on my A1237 didn't fit.

HELP! I replaced my Original Macbook Air hard drive with a Samsung 1.8" 120 G PATA HS12YHA hard drive. Now my Mac gives me the flashing folder with the "?" and Disk Utility doesn't recognize the new drive. Any suggestions??

Deborah - Réponse

I installed the new hard drive. Your instructions were very accurate. However, when I turn the machine on, I see a blinking folder image with a question mark in the middle. I am assuming since the hard drive is completely blank, there is no "boot" routine. However, since this is an Air, there is no internal disc drive so I don't know how to run the original install discs. Any thoughts?

kevin c - Réponse

There is a little restore USB that came with that MacBook Air that can be used to install the OS on the new hard drive.

Did you have response to. Your question? I have same problem ?

The foam looking parts on the HDD - what are they and where do I get them from ? Are they required or can the replacement drives go in without them? I have the rubber shock absorber and the casing but I don't have the felt or foam stick on parts. I hope someone knows what the !@#$ i'm talking about!

Great guide, but huge overkill!

As has been mentioned by others, I

1) removed the cover,

2) disconnected the battery (but left it in place)

3) unhooked the cable from the top edge of the hard disk bumper.

4) disconnected the wide 'port hatch' ribbon cable that sits on top of the drive, moving it back but not removing it completely.

5) disconnected the data cable for the hard disk where it plugs onto the logic board.

6) removed the screws holding the hard disk bumper in place

7) removed the hard disk.

Everything else is not needed, and you still have loads of room to work in. The more you touch in there, the easier it is to break something.

Thanks for the guide

Just in case anybody doing resurrection these old things.

As post upside mensioned, there are difference HDD thingy between Early 2008(A1237) and Late 2008 + Mid 2009(both A1304). 1st gen A1237 uses 40pin ZIF connector and internal PATA(=E-IDE) protocol. 2nd gen A1304 uses 24pin LIF connector and internal SATA protocol. They don't compatible each other both cable and disk.

If you want to replace 1g A1237 HDD, you can just buy 1.8" 40pin ZIF HDD and replace it. No problem.

But if you try to replace 2g A1304 HDD, There is no way to buy 24pin LIF connector used HDD or SSD (with proper price, at least). And that's because LIF24 is specific design for some Apple devices. But LIF24 internally uses standard SATA pins. So you can jump from the LIF24 cable's pin header. It provides 3.3v, GND, SATA data A+, A-, B-, B+. If you going to use mSATA SSD or 1.8" SATA SSD, it just uses 3.3v only so jump LIF24 to mSATA should works. By any chance it needs 5v, there's always 5v in USB.
