    • Two 9 mm screws

    • Eight 2.6 mm screws

    • To ensure that everything is de-energized and won't turn on while you're working, it is recommended that you disconnect the battery.

    • Grab the clear plastic pull tab attached to the battery connector and pull it parallel to the board toward the front edge of the Air.

    • Do not lift upward on the connector as you disconnect it or you risk damage to the connector socket.

You’re using the wrong model macbook air here, the 2014 has a different battery connector that YOU SHOULD NOT lift up.
