The battery, keyboard, trackpad, and upper case are all stuck together. If you break one of these components, you will need to replace the entire assembly. Follow this guide to do so.

  1. MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement, Lower Case: step 1, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the following P5 pentalobe screws securing the lower case to the MacBook Pro:

    • Eight 3.1 mm

    • Two 2.3 mm

  2. MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement: step 2, image 1 of 2 MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement: step 2, image 2 of 2
    • Lifting from the edge nearest the clutch cover, lift the lower case off the MacBook Pro.

    • Gently lift each side of the battery connector to pry the connector out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Bend the connector back toward the battery, ensuring that the battery connector doesn't accidentally make contact with the logic board.

  6. MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement, AirPort/Camera Cables: step 6, image 1 of 3 MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement, AirPort/Camera Cables: step 6, image 2 of 3 MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement, AirPort/Camera Cables: step 6, image 3 of 3
    • Use a spudger or tweezers to pry the three AirPort antenna cables straight up off of their sockets on the AirPort board, and bend them up and out of the way.

    • The cable connection points are very 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.

  7. MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement: step 7, image 1 of 2 MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement: step 7, image 2 of 2

  8. MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement: step 8, image 1 of 2 MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement: step 8, image 2 of 2
    • Use the tip of a spudger to push the camera cable connector out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Be sure to push parallel to the board, pushing first on one side, then the other to "walk" the connector out of its socket.

  9. MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement: step 9, image 1 of 3 MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement: step 9, image 2 of 3 MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement: step 9, image 3 of 3
    • Use your fingers to pull the AirPort/Camera cables up off the fan.

    • The cables are adhered to the fan, so peel them up carefully to avoid damaging them.

    • Carefully de-route the cables from the plastic cable guide.

    • On reassembly, there should be enough adhesive still on these cables to stick them back down to the fan.

  10. MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2015 Upper Case Assembly Replacement, I/O Board Cable (Top): step 10, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the four 2.2 mm T5 Torx screws securing the I/O board cable connector covers.

Excellent instructions with great photos. After damaging my keyboard with coca-cola, I didnt know should I get a new keyboard or complete upper case. I went ahead and got complete case. This tutorial was very handy, better than any youtube video. Took me 5 hours to do it and now I am typing using the new keyboard. Thanks a lot.
