    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

  3. For certain repairs (e.g. hard drive), disconnecting the battery connector is not necessary but it prevents any accidental shorting of electronics on the motherboard. If you do not disconnect the battery connector, please be careful as parts of the motherboard might be electrified. Use the edge of a spudger to pry the battery connector upwards from its socket on the logic board.

Is there a way to diagnose if the on and off bluetooth on my MacBook Pro Mid 2012 is related to a frayed Bluetooth cable vs a broken Bluetooth board?

Mina G. - Ответить

I also have the same MacBook Pro. I just swapped the board and it didn’t fix my Bluetooth issue. It’s probably the cable.

I’d call this an easy replacement to be honest. Pulling the tape back is the hardest part. I didn’t disconnect the battery for mine (as some reviews said that could cause shorts as much as not disconnecting it), and things went just fine. All together, replacement took me less than 10 minutes from start to end, and things work great now!
