I used this guide, as I always do for dismantling Apple products, to replace an inflated battery. If you have this issue, its still easy to do with a couple of minor differences. #1 - you’ll make life easier if you put some of the adhesive remover on the ends of the cards as you begin to remove the 4 middle batteries. Because the batteries are bloated, the edges (while more exposed) will require a bit more push to get underneath. And #2 - you cannot get the solvent in the middle of the 2 center batteries in most cases. This is where #1 comes in as you can get the adhesive remover into the exposed sides to allow the solvent to do its job. All in all, thats all that I needed to do in order replace my bloated battery with the new one. It works great!
Should be worth noting that the black tape/wire grommet on the right red screw is flimsy. When overtightened, it can tear.
