Carefully lift the battery connector board up off the logic board.
It is recommended to bend the battery cables just slightly, to keep the board suspended up above the logic board and out of the way.
Do not fold the board completely over, or crease the cables, as this may damage the battery.
Grasp the battery contact board with tweezers.
Lift the battery contact board up off the logic board and remove it.
Removing this board will ensure that the battery remains disconnected throughout your repair, preventing your computer from accidentally powering on. It's also a good idea to take it out so it doesn't fall out unexpectedly.
Use the flat end of a spudger to pry the headphone jack cable connector straight up off its socket on the logic board.
Gently bend the headphone jack cable to 90° up from the logic board.
Bending the headphone jack cable will allow you to disconnect the left speaker cable connector without having the headphone jack cable in the way.
