Introduction

Use this guide to replace the microphone cable.

This guide requires the removal of the heat sink and logic board. Don't forget to follow our thermal paste application guide before you reinstall your heat sink.

    • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Two 2.3 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Eight 3.0 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your device.

Simply DISABLING the microphones can be done in 3 steps: #1, #2, #25, #26. No need to yank the logic board/fan and all that.

Many thanks for preparing / making this brilliant guide available. The mic in my Macbookpro failed for some reason and, using this guide I replaced it with a refurbished spare and saved myself $$. Every single step has been captured with specific additional detail / imagery where needed. It’s scary working with the tiny connectors but this guide gives you confidence it can be done / you can do it.

Nick Cassidy,

Where did you find a replacement? I have looked EVERYWHERE and can not find one.

Thanks!
