Plastic cover removal or replacement

Block Image

Does the plastic cover adhered to the battery inside the Macbook pro 13in retina early 2013 have to be replaced after being removed? I Ive tried just sticking the original back on but it doesn't stick very well. Can I just remove it?

Is this a good question?

If you are referencing the cover the came with the new battery, it is just there to prevent the battery from sticking to things. It can be discarded after the battery is installed.

Sorry I should have done this to begin with but I attached a picture of the flap in question to the post. Thanks in advance!


Sorry, difference piece of plastic. Those do not stick well, I use some Kaptan tape to hold it in place.


Does that piece of plastic have a purpose or can it be removed all together?


Keeps the bottom plate from contacting.
