Side of removable battery: what is the screw type and size?

Is that a Torx 1 or 2 maybe? I have the expanding battery symptom, thought I'd have a look inside. ;) Just want to make sure I order the right screwdriver.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Chosen Solution

Macbook 1181 removable battery: torx screws (qty 10)

I can remove these screws using 3 sizes of torx screwdrivers

- T4

- T5

- T6

T5 seems to be the one who's got the better grip. If you want to be sure bring your battery in a hardware store and try the screwdrivers.

+ and I thought those were tri-lobe 922-9249 or 922-9515 ;-) thanks.


Thanks lemerise!

I thought I'd try the only similar size screwdriver I had, the MacBook Air pentalobe screwdriver, and it worked. All screws removed no problem. Lucky ;)
