  • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Two 2.3 mm Pentalobe screws

    • Eight 3.0 mm Pentalobe screws

For all the screws you use the P5 pentalobe screwdriver?

Carlos - Ответить

Pentalobe is only for the screws on the bottom cover. The Torx screw driver is for the remainder.

Fredrik -

Is the Pentalobe screwdriver mentioned in the tools list? I did not have one so I used a filed down flat blade screwdriver. Not a fantastic idea, but it works.

Alex Birkett - Ответить

Yes, it's mentioned on the top of this page. P5 Pentalobe to be precise. I didn't have one either, so I bought one from iFixit and that works fantastic. An absolutely precise fit, which is important especially when you might open your MacBook a couple of times during the years you own it. Not using the correct tool might do more harm to the screws than you want! I once had this with a Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro, which has Torx screws (T4 I think) and I used cheap Chinese quality tools, with the result that both the tool and one of the screws are damaged.

addvariety -

the macbook in the picture is 2012. does it has the same structure as 2013?

Edison - Ответить

I never, ever, ever considered using anything but the correct tool on the Pentalobe screws. Too easy to strip and void your warranty (if still in effect), as well as make it almost impossible to get inside later for another upgrade or repair. The Wiha P5 Pentalobe screwdriver fits like a glove and costs only about $11 (a fraction of your drive's price)at Amazon.com. Get it!

marketing - Ответить

is P5 supposed to be for all 10 screws? it works on the 2x 2.3mm at the top, but not for the 8x others for me. what size screwdriver for the 3mm? thanks

monsieurescargot - Ответить

Yes, the p5 works for all 10 pentalobe screw heads for bottom cover. The the different size mm reference only refers to the difference in length of the screws, but again both heads are p5.

The lower case is connected to the upper case with two plastic clips near its center. During reassembly, gently push down the center of the lower case to reattach the two plastic clips.

There are two screws that are shorter-they go to the back near the vent.

This was already mentioned at the start, it says 2x 2.3mm screws and those are coloured red instead of orange for the other ones in iFixit's image.

addvariety - Ответить

What is the black vinyl-y sticker on the inside of the case (some sort of shield?). I was forced to slightly puncture it in order to replace the feet on my laptop. Thanks in advance.

If necessary, remove the plastic cover adhered to the battery contact board.

Use the flat end of a spudger to lift the battery connector straight up out of its socket on the logic board. Be sure you lift up only on the connector itself, not the socket, or you risk permanent damage to the logic board.

I have a friends MacBook Pro that has some water damage that caused the MacBook not to be able to use battery power, but still work when plugged into A/C. Upon further inspection I can see visible corrosion on a few of the 9 cables going from the battery connector to that small circuit board. Is it possible to just replace that circuit board?

jramsey21 - Ответить

I have the some problem. I was thinking to replace the whole battery but I am not it will solve the problem. Any suggestions?

salvatorebarbera -

Sometimes it can be enough to just clean the contacts without having to replace the entire board. Dosent work for complicated IC's like plcc type, where corrosion is underneath the chip. Here you will have to reheat and reapply the IC.

andrehedegaard -

Have either of you replaced the battery and/or circuit board to fix the MacBooks with the water damage ? I have the same problem with the MacBook working fine when connected to power but dying immediately when the power cord is removed.

Steve - Ответить

Hi, Steve. I had the same problem: Macbook Pro 15 retina with coffee damage. And it worked fine when connected to power. I made it working after replacing the whole battery. It seems that circuit connected to the battery becomes disabled to prevent short circuit.

Vadim Gribanov -

When placing the battery connector back into the socket on the logic board, check that every part of connector is pressed down. You should hear a soft click when it's back in place.

Ethan Tarquin - Ответить

Thanks for the comment. My MBP isn’t powering on after I walked through these steps, and I assume it is because the battery connector isn’t fully connected. (I can’t check yet since I borrowed the pentalobe screwdriver)

Caleb Steinborn -

I thought I made sure it was connected but when running the computer it only detected the battery but couldn’t power it. I had to run with power adapter. Also it didn’t charge. I guess some pins were connected but not all. To verify that all were connected I removed the plastic cover, placed it carefully completely flat, and then reattached the plastic cover. After that it worked!

Jonas Ehrs -

If I only want to replace the trackpad cable, then which steps should I skip? This step seems unnecessary

Parth Gudhka - Ответить

Bend the battery connector up out of the way to prevent accidental contact with its socket during your repair.
  • Bend the battery connector up out of the way to prevent accidental contact with its socket during your repair.

If you miss or let this step for later like I did, the power left in the battery even though the computer is completely shut down, will screw up the I/O board cable like I did. I noticed this after I put all the pieces back, turn the computer on and surprise, no wifi hardware is detected. -.-

sebasgaes - Ответить

I put a small piece of blue painters tape on the battery connector contacts to prevent it from accidentally making a connection and shorting. This helped keep things a bit more protected.

Lift the free end of the SSD up slightly and pull the SSD straight out of its socket on the logic board. Only lift the end of the SSD enough to allow you to pull it out—about 1/4". Only lift the end of the SSD enough to allow you to pull it out—about 1/4".

Transcend 960GB JetDrive 720 SATAIII 6Gb/s Solid State Drive Upgrade Kit for MacBook Pro 13" with Retina Display, Late 2012 - Early 2013 (TS960GJDM720) - Is this compatible with the Macbook Pro 13" Retina - Mid 2014?

Jess - Ответить

Según el fabricante no, me puse en contacto con ellos y dicen que estan en desarrollo. Yo ya pregunte en este foro por que otro unidad de ssd cambio la original y nadie responde...

According to the manufacturer no, I got in touch with them and say they are developing . I already ask at this forum by another unit ssd change the original and nobody answers ..

Antonio -

Manufacturers that don't say it's compatible, just haven't tested it. You just have to pay special attention to the notch(es) on the connector. I had a 512 GB SSD lying around, but it had two notches at 1/3 and 2/3 (M.2 B & M notches) instead of the MacBook's notch that's somewhat in the middle and is NOT a standard of the M.2 format.

addvariety -

No. But OWC now sells a higher capacity SSD for the 2015 MBP's

robert Seith - Ответить

Why do I need to disconnect the battery?

David DelMonte - Ответить

To prevent damage on motherboard while connecting/disconnecting SSD.

What are your recommendations for transferring the data to the replacement flash drive?

Hello

Can you confirm that the ssd for the macbook pro mid 2014 really is replaceable?

I hear rumours that the ssd is stuck to the motherbord.

Pieter Baeyens - Ответить

I changed the MacBook Pro 13' Mid 2014 SSD successfully from 120GB to 1000GB. Follow all the steps provided and everything will be fine.

Syafiq Sufi -

I spoke with an apple expert at the genius bar and they said that the SSD is Soldered into the motherboard itself. Which is why I bought another MacBook pro for $1500 after mine had corrupted. Once I was informed you could change it out, I filed a complaint with Apple's Tech Support, which they did nothing about and said that their employees were uninformed.

Joe Wilkie -

Why is it necessary to disconnect the battery for the SSD replacement?

Robert Kelly - Ответить

You always want to remove the battery and/or unplug your laptop/desktop before doing any repairs or upgrades to reduce electrical shock.

ncrimmel -

Nonsense, turn the laptop off, make sure hand/wrist are grounded, and you do not have to disconnect the battery. There is more chance of battery surge damage or connector damage then there is damage to the hard disk in a complete shut down mode. 28 years of electronic repair in all industries has taught me this.

Nic Wilson -

Of course! Disconnect any power from any device you repair!!! I just burned up a logic board of my iPhone case-battery because of accidentally shortcuts circuit with metal tweezers =( Battery was connected to board

firuz1844 - Ответить

how do you reinstall the os since there is no more the recovery partition?

Jonathan Obino - Ответить

You can make a bootable USB drive before you upgrade your SSD. I would do this with an older version of OS X (e.g. Lion), which you can afterwards upgrade to Yosemite for free. I'm sure there is also a possibility to make a Yosemite bootable, I just haven't done it before myself.

Jan -

Is it only 512 and 1TB SSD avalible in the market? No 750, 712GBs?

Bob - Ответить

May you confirm, is this model can be upgradeable i heard it cannot regards.

raymondg1992 - Ответить

Could anyone confirm whether it can be done or not?

gratain - Ответить

Is anyone else having any issue with taking the battery connector off? I just don't want to damage the connectors because it feels much more difficult to pull up then previous model Macs I've dealt with. If so, what did you do to make it easier?

isaacfinger - Ответить

NOTE! If you bought a brand new SSD you will have to initialize it. When you turn your computer on hold down option+command+R. Then, on the window that gives you the options to install OSX or use TimeMachine, or use Disk Utility. Pick Disk utility because you need to initialize the drive. Select your drive on the left side bar then select "partition" and give it a name, make sure it is "journaled" and select the number of partitions that you want. You can then click continue, or next or whatever is at the bottom. It'll take a few seconds for the partition to be completed. Lastly, go back to the window with the main options as (stated above) and select "download OSX". Then let that baby download and your home free!

Hi

Sorry if this is a repeat question anyhow but can anyone tell me if the RAM for Macbook Pro 13 Retina (Mid 2014) can be upgraded from 8GB to 16GB?

Thanks

no - RAM is soldiered and not replacable

Hi,

looking for an adapter to replace the existing SSD with a mSATA SSD on my Macbook pro 13" retina (mid 2014). Anybody can provide details if this is possible and how to buy adapter for the A1502 model?

many thanks.

Tobi - Ответить

Yes this works people..MANY have answered this so ease quit asking. You cannot update the ram however it is definitely soldered in. If you're willing seeing simply remove the back and look at the SSD drive. If you see a simple gle screw then it's removable. Common sense…
