Were you able to upgrade the bluetooth?


@Kristopher - I think Nick gave up as there is just no built-in replacement part for this series of MacBook Pro. There are some external USB bluetooth units that will work if you need LE services. You still won't be able to gain Hand Off functions as the WiFi adapter won't work.

You'll find the Bluetooth board & antenna mounted on the back side of the keyboard assembly. Review this IFIXIT guide Keyboard replacement. Look at Step 16 image in the bottom left is the Bluetooth board & antenna.

As to upgrading, I don't know of any upgrade that would work here. Maybe some else does.
