    I assume you have the newer model, with the built-in battery. It's still removable with tools, but these are the wrong instructions for that model.

    when will there be a guide for the other unibody macbook pro. that does not have an access door?

    irishking - Réponse

    Is there a manual to show, how disasembly the display, i mean, after step 5, to check the display between lcd and aluminiun back case?


    Max - Réponse

    On other guides you state the height of the HD that can be supported, e.g. MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Model A1211 Hard Drive Replacement , I have read ( but have not confirmed ) that the uni-body MacBook Pro can be fitted with the 750GB and 1TB 12mm drive from Western Digital.

    Can you confirm this?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Quote from SHerwood Ball:

    My display and aluminum casing has separated.

    I don't know if it just snaps back together or does it need to be glued.

    I dropped mine on the carpeted stairs and the display still works.

    I'm hoping I can just snap it back together and that no plastic pieces or teeth of the snapping

    portion have been broken........

    When you say "left fan" is this "left when looking at the logic board after turning the computer over and looking it up opening it up" or "left when sitting at the computer keyboard and typing on it"?

    We always use left and right in reference to the computer when you're using it.

    Directions were great and the worn dc in board was replaced. The hardest part of the procedure is disconnecting the data display cable. A better description of step 21 is to slide the connector parallel to the circuit board towards the outside corner. Reconnecting correctly took several tries.

    I used the tip of the spudger to nudge the corners a little at a time to seat the connector.

    The ribbon connector for the keyboard has to be inserted all the way before seating the retaining cap. It took me three tries . First try power button did not work second try numbers keys did not work.

    Thanks for the directions ...could not have done it with out them!!!

    • Assurez-vous que la languette de la trappe d'accès est bien à la verticale avant de commencer.

    • Tirez sur la languette et retirez la batterie de votre MacBook.

    • Si la languette n'est pas bien positionnée, elle empêchera la batterie de sortir.

    Do I need to wait for the battery to charge completely before using the computer (while plugged in)?

    Kaila Potts - Réponse

    No. You do not need to charge it completely before removing it.

    Hi, My name is Jess I need help asap I accidentally dropped my macbook Pro and i cant find the silver screw for the top left back side, Does any one know if I can replace it with an eye glass screw?? If you can help at all Please e-mail me at thx please help me my bf is going off... ;(

    Jess - Réponse

    The fixit PH00 is the wrong screw driver for this entire job. It did not fit in the screws, it was too pointy and caused screws to be rounded off.

    • En vous servant des deux mains, soulevez le boîtier inférieur et retirez-le du boîtier supérieur.

    About midway along each edge is a snap. To release each snap, gently slide the flat edge of a Spudger under the lower case, then lift the lower case away.

    • Écartez les deux clips de chaque côté du module de RAM simultanément pour libérer ce dernier.

    • Ces clips maintiennent le module en place et lorsque vous les écartez, le module se soulève.

    Ajouter un commentaire

    • Saisissez le module de RAM par les côtés et sortez-le de son emplacement en le levant bien droit.

    • Répétez l'opération si un second module de RAM est installé.

Thank you ifixit. It was a breeze... 8Gb in the house... Best Regards

Hi Bruno!

Assuming you still have the MBP, I am curious to see what memory you installed to get 8 gigs. I just installed 2 X 4 gigs of Kingston PC3 106000 SODIM and my MBP does not want it. My tech assured me that if anything would do it, it was this memory.


Thank you!

As a breeze. Man, was my computer dirty! Now my computer feels like it's on amphetamines! Lol. So happy the pinwheels are gone. I can finally get work done and feel right about charging my clients hourly!

jayalovevibes - Réponse

Thanks ifixit ... Easy reward & proud 8GB working power.

Tiny note: I wasn't sure weather or not it is important (or not) to remove the stickers from my 2 x 4GB RAM modules - I left the stickers on and it seems all running happily.

Grit - Réponse

Installed 8GB of RAM without problems. :)

Been wondering if this system would support 16GB though, given that appropriate modules seem to be on the market, that it has a 64 bit EFI and that the never versions of OS X, booted in the 64 bit kernel (which has been the default mode for a few years, now) obviously support that and more…

jack - Réponse

didn’t work, but it was because i did not had the right ram. so, i put my old ram back in, and it just worked fine. thank you, it worked, but not with my ram.

Jef Kockelbergh - Réponse

I understand that you placed 2 ram of 8 gb each?
