MacBook White 13" mid 2009 battery swollen and stuck


My battery got swollen and I am sure it's about to explode. I want to take it out but it's stuck. As you can see, in the picture here:

Image the switch is in the unlocked option but the battery does not unstuck and cannot get out of its slot.

Just to clarify, what you see in the picture is a battery swollen. It's not a battery half taken out from its slot.

Any ideas on how to fix this issue and take out the battery?

I would double check the cam lock has moved (turned) and pop (pry) the battery out of the case.

You'll damage the battery - try not to damge the bottom of the case (use a block of wood or something as a fulcrum for your lever).

Worst case scenario - you can get a replacement bottom for the laptop.
