Use this guide to replace a blown speaker on the right side of your MacBook Air.

    • Before proceeding, close your computer and lay it on a soft surface top-side down.

    • Remove the following ten screws:

      • Two 8 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

      • Eight 2.5 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

    • The special screwdriver needed to remove the eight 5-point Pentalobe screws can be found here.

    I recommend that one of the tools you obtain is a jeweler's loupe that mounts on your glasses. It makes things easier.

    This is not correct. You need the pentalobe tool at this point.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry both short sides of the battery connector upward to disconnect it from its socket on the logic board.

    • Bend the battery cable slightly away from the logic board so the connector will not accidentally contact its socket.

    This is the same as step 3 isn't it?

    • Remove the following five screws securing the battery to the upper case:

      • Two 5.2 mm T5 Torx screws

      • One 6 mm T5 Torx screw

      • Two 2.6 mm T5 Torx screws

    Don’t be like me! Make sure you use the *other* screw driver, not the one you took the case off with. I got five of them out with the wrong screwdriver, stripped the head on the sixth, got it out with a screw extractor, cut a new slot in it so I could use a normal flat head screw driver on it to put it back in, and then realized….

    • When handling the battery, avoid squeezing or touching the six exposed lithium polymer cells.

    • Lift the battery from its edge nearest the logic board and remove it from the upper case.

    • Use the tip of a spudger to de-route the right speaker cable from the channel cut into the logic board.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the right speaker cable connector up and out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Pry upward from beneath the wires.

    This connector is very small and delicate. Be sure to pry between the connector and socket, not between the socket and motherboard.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the right speaker off the adhesive securing it to the upper case.

    • Only pry up on the speaker from the areas of bare aluminum on the upper case. Prying up from the keyboard area may damage the keyboard and the speaker itself.

    • Remove the right speaker from the upper case.
