Title:

Switch battery connector on the battery itself (A1321)

Text:

Hi,
 
My macbook pros battery just died (model number '''A1321 - 77,5 Wh'''), so i tried to search similar battery but most of them for this model is only 73Wh.
 
Finaly i found and bought a same/similar battery with 77,5 Wh, but i accidently missread the model number, its '''A1382'''.
 
Everything looks the same, except the connector, so basicly i cannot use it.
 
My question is: How can i change the connector itself. I simply cant find any good guide about the 8 cable lines, to check the differences between the 2 battery connection.
 
To make it more clear here is a picture of the 2 connectors:
