Update your MacBook Pro with a new set of feet.

  1. Remove the following 10 screws securing the lower case to the MacBook Pro 13" Unibody:
    • Remove the following 10 screws securing the lower case to the MacBook Pro 13" Unibody:

    • Seven 3 mm Phillips screws.

    • Three 13.5 mm Phillips screws.

    Compare the short screws carefully before reinstalling them. The shouldered screws go in the holes on the front edge.

    Before I started removing any screws I took a piece of paper and drew the bottom of the laptop and put a piece of double-sided tape in the spot where each screw goes. That way when I took out the screws, I could put them on the tape so I knew exactly which screw went in which spot. I did the same thing for dismantling the inside on another sheet of paper, then a third sheet for the screen after getting the front glass off.

    I use a similar technique: I print out the iFixit manual for the job, and Scotch-tape down the screws/brackets/cables I remove at each step next to the component descriptions. That way, when I'm reassembling, the bits are taped right next to the photo of where they came from.

    That's exactly what I do for all my repairs! It's the best way to keep track of all of the parts ' original location and to make sure that you don't miss any parts during reassembly.

    Great idea and one I use often

    Excellent idea! Thanks for sharing it here.

    I used a 00 that fit but the screws were very tight so I used a tiny paintbrush with some wd40 on it and put it around the edges of the screws. Worked like a charm

    In the introduction you should link fixers to this excellent doc: https://www.ifixit.com/Misc/HD_Software_...

    It is really critical, super easy, and free(!) to clone your existing drive onto the new one you will install. I ran into one error, but SuperDuper! support replied immediately on how to fix it...Thanks ifixit and SuperDuper! (I ponied up the $28 for the software anyway, I was so impressed!)

    My A1278 hasn't got holes in the backplate?

    The feet just seem to be stuck on with adhesive.

    Do I still have to unscrew the back?

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Hi Rob,

    If the backplate doesn’t have the holes, you can still use the feet by just glueing them on. You would not have to open the backplate.

    I have been told that if you are using adhesive, you should follow these steps and remove the bottom.

    This way, adhesive doesn’t get inside the machine.

    Larry D Turner - Ответить

    Hi Larry,

    That is definitely true, if you are adding liquid adhesives. The feet we sell come with adhesive pre-installed on the feet. All you have to do is peel and stick!

Just wondering if melting the original pads from inside the case with a flame would help to fix them in place for a little longer.

vlada - Ответить

I’d be a little wary of doing something like that. I don’t think it would help the pads stay in place very much, but it might make it really hard to clean the case when you do want to replace the pads. If you want to make the original pads last a little longer you can try pulling them off, cleaning off the old adhesive, and applying some new tape or glue.
