Follow this IFIXIT guide: Mac Mini Late 2014 Logic Board Replacement follow the guide to Step25 taking the logic board out. Flip the logic board over to get to the battery which I've marked here:

Thank you Dan! Can I use the same battery as Mac mini 2012 for replacement (BR2032 coin-cell) ?


Apple has been consistent on the button battery so it should be correct. Double check as I haven't needed to replace one yet in this series.


I have only see one of these disk batteries fail in a Mac since they first came out, so I doubt it is your problem. Please tell us what your symptoms are.


Agreed @mayer it's not often one needs to replace.


Every time I turn on my Mac, the screen solution and sound balance will change so I think there might be a problem with PRAM. What do you guys think?
