    • First start by peeling off the outer rubbery covering on the bottom of the device.

    • CAUTION: This part is very fragile, so it is recommended that a blow dryer is used on the covering to heat it up. Simply blow dry the covering while slowly peeling it away, and the covering will not tear.

I have an A1354 and it powers up just fine. The problem is that it keeps dropping connection to airport utility on my mac every 5 seconds or so. I came here looking for a potential diagnosis/repair. I didn’t know about the battery. Could that be an issue? It has never been replaced.
