What are the screws between the battery?

Dear all,

Got a second hand MBP 2013 Retina, openned it up, and there is four screws in the chassis as some in the below picture (red).

What are these for?

These are used to clip onto the metal bottom cover. Usually one on the left and one on the right.

Keep them there as there is no need to remove them.

But the metal bottom cover does not have anything to clip to?


Fairly sure they do, there's like either two metal or black clips on the bottom to help you align the back screws and vototn cover.

You usually press at those two points with the bottom cover on and you'll hear it pop in two times.

Check out this product page, in the second image of the product review shows two black points of where they are.
