Remove the following ten screws:
Two 8 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws
Eight 2.5 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws
Wedge your fingers between the display and the lower case and pull upward to pop the lower case off the Air.
Use the flat end of a spudger to pry both short sides of the battery connector upward to disconnect it from its socket on the logic board.
Bend the battery cable slightly away from the logic board so the connector will not accidentally contact its socket.
Remove the single 2.9 mm T5 Torx screw securing the SSD to the logic board.
