    • Use the flat end of a spudger to lift the battery connector up out of its socket on the logic board.

  4. Use a spudger to pry the fan connector out of its seat, and straight up off the logic board. It is useful to twist the spudger axially from beneath the fan cable wires to release the connector. The fan socket and the fan connector can be seen in the second and third pictures. Be careful not to break the plastic fan socket off the logic board as you use your spudger to lift the fan connector straight up and out of its socket. The layout of the logic board shown in the second picture may look slightly different than your machine but the fan socket is the same.

Hi, my macbook pro has a problem with the charging, i've already change the DC-In Board, because i thought that was the main problem and it works fine, the battery works perfect (i tested in another mac) the charger works fine (the same than the battery) and the problem is still there. I went to the mac store (México) and they told me "we have to change the motherboard and it will cost $14000 mxn (about $1100 dls)" I don't have the money to do that. do i have really change the the motherboard? there is no other clue to fix this? Thanks for the tutorial it's very well explained.

Reassembling: Make sure, the cable of the DC-In board is on the logic board-side of the screw hole when putting in the logic board. Otherwise the display data cable bracket won't fit in and you have to remove the board again.

So I hope, the DC-In board was really the cause of my problems. I changed the battery and the charging cable before and still had problems. At this moment my macbook loads again, but I don't know if its because of the board or again just luck. Thank you very much for the guide.
