Is it safe to use adhesive remover on swollen battery?


I ordered the iFixit battery fix kit with the adhesive remover. When I opened my macbook, I've noticed two swollen battery cells.

My question is simple : is it dangerous to use the adhesive remover on the swollen cells ?

Thank you !

PS : No, Apple refuses to take care of it for free.

The adhesive remover its self is not the risk! The poking and physical pulling on the battery is the risk of it rupturing!

So basically take the system outside away from anything flammable. Use care as you remove the battery don't over due the remover and take your time.

I do strongly recommend you wear some gloves with a long sleeved shirt, face mask and eye protection so if you rupture the battery you don't get the material on you. This is more of a worry when the battery is at the point of rupture.
