Remove the plastic cover adhered to the battery contact board.

This plastic cover wasn’t included with the new battery so I placed the original one back in. Was it supposed to go back in? This detail wasn’t clear since the original cover didn’t fit exactly over the newer battery connector. Plus any stickiness of adhesive that may have been there was gone.

I lost this screw! How important is it? Will it be okay with just the 3 previously removed screws?

Carefully lift the battery connector board up off the logic board. It is recommended to bend the battery cables just slightly, to keep the board suspended up above the logic board and out of the way.

Hi, I've seen this Airport board teardown and the Early 2015 one. I think that Airport board is the same and I would like to replace my board with the Early 2015 one. Can you tell me if is it possible? Can be driver issues? Mac OS version issues? Thank you
