Introduction

Use this guide to replace the upper case. This procedure involves using adhesive remover to remove the battery. Do not reuse the battery after it has been removed, as doing so is a potential safety hazard. Replace it with a new battery.

iFixit adhesive remover is highly flammable. Perform this procedure in a well-ventilated area. Do not smoke or work near an open flame during this procedure.

To minimize risk of damage, turn on your MacBook and allow the battery to fully discharge before starting this procedure. A charged lithium-ion battery can create a dangerous and uncontrollable fire if accidentally punctured. If your battery is swollen, take extra precautions.

Some replacement upper case assemblies may include the trackpad and battery as well. In this case, skip steps 18 through 44.

This guide requires the removal of the heat sink. 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.

    • If your replacement part comes with trackpad, battery, or other components, don't remove them from your old device, simply skip those steps in this guide.

    • Be sure to read through the rest of the guide so you can be sure to transfer all of the necessary components.

  18. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement, iOpener Heating: étape 19, image 1 de 2 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement, iOpener Heating: étape 19, image 2 de 2
    • We recommend that you clean your microwave before proceeding, as any nasty gunk on the bottom may end up stuck to the iOpener.

    • Place the iOpener in the center of the microwave.

    • For carousel microwaves: Make sure the plate spins freely. If your iOpener gets stuck, it may overheat and burn.

  19. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 20, image 1 de 1
    • Heat the iOpener for thirty seconds.

    • Throughout the repair procedure, as the iOpener cools, reheat it in the microwave for an additional thirty seconds at a time.

    • Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair. Overheating may cause the iOpener to burst.

    • Never touch the iOpener if it appears swollen.

    • If the iOpener is still too hot in the middle to touch, continue using it while waiting for it to cool down some more before reheating. A properly heated iOpener should stay warm for up to 10 minutes.

  20. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 21, image 1 de 1
    • Remove the iOpener from the microwave, holding it by one of the two flat ends to avoid the hot center.

    • The iOpener will be very hot, so be careful when handling it. Use an oven mitt if necessary.

  21. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement, Alternate iOpener heating method: étape 22, image 1 de 2 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement, Alternate iOpener heating method: étape 22, image 2 de 2
    • If you don't have a microwave, follow this step to heat your iOpener in boiling water.

    • Fill a pot or pan with enough water to fully submerge an iOpener.

    • Heat the water to a boil. Turn off the heat.

    • Place an iOpener into the hot water for 2-3 minutes. Make sure the iOpener is fully submerged in the water.

    • Use tongs to extract the heated iOpener from the hot water.

    • Thoroughly dry the iOpener with a towel.

    • The iOpener will be very hot, so be careful to hold it only by the end tabs.

    • Your iOpener is ready for use! If you need to reheat the iOpener, heat the water to a boil, turn off the heat, and place the iOpener in the water for 2-3 minutes.

  22. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement, Battery: étape 23, image 1 de 1
    • Remove the five 3.7 mm T5 Torx screws securing the battery to the upper case.

    • Your specific unit may only have one screw securing the battery's circuit board to the frame.

  23. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 24, image 1 de 1
    • The liquid adhesive remover provided in your iFixit battery replacement kit can affect the antireflective coating on your MacBook Pro's display.

    • To protect your display, place a sheet of aluminum foil between the display and keyboard and leave it there while you work.

  24. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 25, image 1 de 2 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 25, image 2 de 2
    • If you have an iFixit battery kit with liquid adhesive remover, it's time to get it prepped.

    • Alternatively, if you are using the hot iOpener method, skip the following three steps.

    • iFixit adhesive remover contains acetone, a mild skin and eye irritant.

    • Wear eye protection when handling and applying the adhesive remover. (Eye protection is included in your kit.)

    • Do not wear contact lenses without eye protection.

    • Protective gloves are also included in your kit. If you are concerned about skin irritation, put your gloves on now.

  25. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 26, image 1 de 3 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 26, image 2 de 3 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 26, image 3 de 3
    • Pull off the black rubber stopper from your bottle of adhesive remover.

    • Twist to loosen or remove the bottle cap before you cut the applicator tip.

    • This unseals the bottle and allows the pressure to equalize before you cut the applicator tip. If you skip this step, the adhesive remover may spray out unexpectedly when the tip is cut.

    • Use scissors to cut off the sealed tip of the applicator.

    • Cutting close to the narrow tip will give you better control so you can apply the adhesive remover in small amounts.

    • Twist and close the bottle cap securely before you proceed further.

  26. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 27, image 1 de 1
    • Apply a few drops of adhesive remover evenly under the edge of the rightmost battery cell.

    • You don't need to use very much. The small bottle contains more than twice the amount of solvent needed to remove all the battery cells.

    • Wait 2-3 minutes for the liquid adhesive remover to penetrate underneath the battery cell before you proceed to the next step.

    • Use more adhesive remover if needed, but do not apply more than a few drops at a time. Using too much can allow the adhesive remover to make its way to the backside of your keyboard and potentially damage it.

  27. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 28, image 1 de 2 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 28, image 2 de 2
    • If you don't have a liquid adhesive remover, you'll be using a hot iOpener to warm and soften a section of the adhesive securing the battery to the upper case, and then carefully prying at that point.

    • Use the hot iOpener to cover half of the two right-most battery cells.

    • After about a minute, reheat the iOpener and move it to cover the other half of the right-most battery cells.

  28. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 29, image 1 de 2 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 29, image 2 de 2
    • Push a plastic card between the right-most battery cell and the upper case, cutting the adhesive between the two.

    • Throughout this procedure, be careful not to damage any of the battery cells with your tools. A damaged lithium-ion battery may leak dangerous chemicals and/or catch fire. Use only plastic pry tools.

    • When using the hot iOpener method, if you encounter significant resistance to prying, stop and use the iOpener to reheat the section you're working on.

  29. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 30, image 1 de 2 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 30, image 2 de 2
    • Use the plastic card to pry the right-most battery cell up from the rear case.

  30. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 31, image 1 de 3 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 31, image 2 de 3 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 31, image 3 de 3
    • Repeat this procedure with the adjacent battery cell:

    • Apply a small amount of liquid adhesive remover under the battery cell, and wait 2-3 minutes for it to penetrate and soften the adhesive.

    • Alternatively, re-heat this section with your iOpener if needed.

    • Push a plastic card about an inch between the battery cell and the upper case, and slowly pry the cell up to separate all of the adhesive.

  31. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 32, image 1 de 3 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 32, image 2 de 3 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 32, image 3 de 3
    • Temporarily leave your plastic card underneath the two rightmost battery cells to prevent them from re-adhering to the upper case.

    • If using an iOpener, reheat it and reapply it, this time to the left-most battery cells.

    • Again, leave the iOpener in each position for about a minute, reheating in between, to heat each half of the left-most battery cells.

  32. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 33, image 1 de 3 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 33, image 2 de 3 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 33, image 3 de 3
    • Repeat the above procedure to separate the two leftmost battery cells from the upper case.

    • Remember to apply a small amount of adhesive remover to each battery cell, and wait 2-3 minutes for it to penetrate and soften the adhesive.

    • Use a second plastic card to separate the two leftmost battery cells from the upper case.

  33. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 34, image 1 de 1
    • Leave the second card in the corner between the two left cells.

    • In the following steps, you can either use a third card, or the card from the right corner. The right corner adhesive should be dry/cool enough that the cells can easily be pulled up again when needed.

  34. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 35, image 1 de 2 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 35, image 2 de 2
    • To separate the adhesive securing the final two, middle battery cells, apply a few more drops of liquid adhesive remover (or your iOpener) to each cell.

    • Apply the adhesive remover sparingly, since the trackpad lies beneath this area of the battery.

    • It may help to elevate one side of your MacBook Pro a few inches so that the adhesive remover flows in the correct direction, underneath the battery cells. You can use a sturdy book or foam block to prop up one side of your MacBook Pro while you work.

    • Insert the card about an inch between the left-center battery cell and the upper case, separating the adhesive between the cell and the case.

  35. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 36, image 1 de 2 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 36, image 2 de 2
    • Pull the card back out and insert it about an inch between the right-center battery cell and the upper case, separating the adhesive between the cell and case.

  36. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 37, image 1 de 2 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 37, image 2 de 2
    • By this point, the outer cells should be free, and you should only encounter resistance from the two center cells. If this is not the case, go back and completely loosen the four outer-most cells from the upper case.

    • Pry up on the two center cells to separate the last of the adhesive and lift the battery from the device.

  37. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 38, image 1 de 2 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 38, image 2 de 2
    • Remove the battery.

    • Before installing your new battery, remove all the old adhesive from the MacBook Pro's case.

    • With a little luck, you can slowly pull out each strip of adhesive with your fingers.

    • Otherwise, soak each section of adhesive with a bit of adhesive remover for 2-3 minutes, and then scrape it out with an opening pick or one of the other tools in your kit. This can take quite a bit of work, so be patient.

    • Mop up any remaining adhesive remover and give your MacBook Pro a few minutes to air dry.

    • The replacement battery included in your iFixit kit comes with adhesive pre-installed. Test the battery's fit and alignment carefully before peeling off the film covering the adhesive, and then press each cell firmly into place. If any additional films/liners are present that weren't on your original battery, remove them now.

    • Calibrate your newly installed battery: charge it to 100%, and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Unplug and use it normally to drain the battery. When you see the low battery warning, save your work, and keep your laptop on until it goes to sleep due to low battery. Wait at least 5 hours, then charge your laptop uninterrupted to 100%.

    • If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new battery, you may need to reset your MacBook Pro's SMC.

  38. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement, Trackpad: étape 39, image 1 de 1
    • Place a reheated iOpener over the trackpad cover plate to soften the adhesive securing it to the upper case.

    • Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair. Always wait at least two minutes before reheating the iOpener.

  39. MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 40, image 1 de 3 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 40, image 2 de 3 MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement: étape 40, image 3 de 3

This is fantastic. I had no difficulty taking my machine apart. I would suggest, however, that we also start doing reassembly guides. I'm pretty good at taking things apart. Putting them back together is a different matter entirely. I'd do one myself if I were able. Many thanks ! Sara

I’m just finished this guide/procedure for the very first time. I didn’t remove the heat sink (step 55 to 57) with a lot of patience and with extreme caution, I remove the logic board with the heat sink attached on a single part, very carefully with the fan and the I/O board, so, it’s possible but not recommend, before this steps remove the MagSafe board first, the full procedure took 3 hours.

thank for this amazing guide!
