Anyone knows where the lid sensor is located for the M1 MacBook Air?

I spilled some water on my keyboard and gave it in to a shop for repairs. They quoted a value that was too high for replacing the trackpad so I got it back. They seem to have messed up some of the stuff like leaving the battery disconnected when they handed it over to me. I just started noticing that the device does not seem to realize when the clamshell is closed. Anyone knows where the sensor for the lid is located for this device so I can have a look at it? Thanks a lot!

I can’t be sure as I have not seen the system physically. But I think the iFixit guides and parts listings gives us a good clue!

Typically Apple places the Hall sensor along the left or right sides of the logic board or I/O board depending on the series. You’ll want to verify by using a steel paper clip sliding it along the inside side of the display lid to locate the magnet. making note with a piece of colored tape or post-it marker fold the lid down and where the pointer falls is where the Hall sensor is located.

So looking at the logic board and the audio jack board its clear the sensor is not present on them. The next two parts is the left and right speakers. I do see extra contacts in the right speaker and that leads me to believe the sensor is hidden within it.

Thanks! I will try this out. So in case this is the hall sensor, and its not working, would I have to replace the entire right speaker to get it to work again?


@ghantaz - Sorry my crystal ball is a bit cloudy, I can't tell you that ;-{


Ah makes sense. Well thanks! I will check this out and update my answer here once I figure it out.


I dont know what happened, but I replaced my trackpad (since that was the part which was damaged from the spill) and the sensor started working again. I didn’t touch the speaker at all and now I see my screen shutting off as I lower it.


@ghantaz - Magic! Likely the spill took awhile to evaporate. In any case please score the answer and accept it - Thanks!
