    • Using the flat end of a spudger, gently pry the battery connector straight up out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Bend the battery cables back and out of the way, ensuring that the battery connector doesn't accidentally make contact with the logic board.

  5. MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Late 2013 MagSafe DC-In Board Replacement, AirPort/Camera Cable: step 5, image 1 of 1
    • Use a spudger or tweezers to pry the three AirPort antenna cables straight up off of their sockets on the AirPort board.

    • The cable connection points are fragile. Be careful to lift only on the connector, and not on the socket or cable.

    • To reconnect, align the connector carefully into position over the socket, and press it down firmly with the flat of your spudger.

  6. MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Late 2013 MagSafe DC-In Board Replacement: step 6, image 1 of 1
    • Use the tip of a spudger to push the camera cable's plug toward the fan and out of its socket on the logic board.

    • The plug in the photo has six connections, but some models have twelve connections. The process of removing the plug from its socket is the same for both.

    • If the camera cable's plug won't come easily out of its socket on the logic board, fold back the rubber cover over the fan to gain access to the cable, then gently pull on the cable while using the spudger to gently push the plug out of its socket.

    • Be sure to push parallel to the board, first on one side, then the other, to slowly "walk" the plug out of its socket. Do not pry up, or you will damage the socket.

I have a 820-3332 logic board (late 2013 MBP 15" Retina, same as this how-to) ) that is missing the socket on the underside of the logic board the magsafe board's wired connection slides into on the underside of the logic board as shown in the final steps. I can't find any mention of a new one anywhere. Looks like it was glued on at the factory. So I'm sitting here with a brand new magsafe 2 board with no way to attach it to the logic board. I though of soldering it directly to the pins that the socket mounts up against on the logic board but there are six pins on the logic board and five wires going to five connection points inside the connector that slides into the socket on the board. Looking at the six pin holes in the new magsafe 2 board connector from the top I see three wires, an empty pin hole and then two wires so I wouldn't even know which pins to attach to which board.

Anyone have any suggestions for this mess?

Any suggestions?

Wow! Somewhat complicated to get that DC board out. Wondering if I should even attempt this.

I have a liquid-damaged (coffee) MBP of this vintage. If I plug in the power adapter, the machine boots and runs fine; however, it shows the battery is "not available" in the battery menu and, when I unplug the magsafe adapter, the machine immediately powers off. As the logic board seems to work fine when plugged in, what do you think about attempting to stick in a DC board? Or is that battery "not available" message an indicator that the battery is also hosed? I don't see any obvious damage to the battery (but...).

Thanks for any advice.

This guide is very good and simple to follow. It may seem tricky but it really isn’t, just take your time to unscrew everything and place them in labeled bins, so you can remember where each screw goes.

I had a bit of trouble with the logic board, after everything was unscrewed it took some fiddling around to finally get the logic board to release and lift up.

Great tutorial.

Great guide! Easier than it looked at first glance!

Great, thank you. I got a 20 euro MagSafe board and it works perfectly.

The guide is accurate, and it is indeed easier than I expected.

For reassembly though I had to take out the logic board twice again because one of the small connectors ‘stayed behind’ the logic board and I only discovered later.

So a tip is to count the connectors you removed, and count again to make sure all are in place to connect and didn't stay in an unreachable place before you reattach the logic board.

Also as another tip, for easier reassembly, I put all the screws (and some parts) on the adhesive tape so they stayed in place and I could spatially fix them. I glued the tape to a paper sheet so I could take notes at which step the screws belonged and also other notes.
