easy peasy. great instructions!
couple things: 1. you dont need to remove the rubber pads completely; just enough to get the screws in & out. 2. if you get a small screw driver with the battery, its crap. use your own.
thank you ifixit for another great tutorial.
Excellent tutorial-very complete. And kit was awesome-everything you need.
My only issue is many of the steps above are unnecessary if you are very careful. You really dont need to remove any parts (see Kim Pro YouTube video).
Also, touchpad backing plate is likely to come off with battery pack, no matter what you do. That’s okay-just remove it slowly and carefully once battery pack is free of laptop.
Finally, use plenty of adhesive remover, tilting top of laptop towards you and away from parts. And LET IT WORK AT LEAST 5-6 minutes (not 2-3 as instructed). Work with dental floss and prying tools.
