With the case closed, place the Unibody top-side down on a flat surface.
Depress the grooved side of the access door release latch enough to grab the free end. Lift the release latch until it is vertical.
Grab the translucent plastic tab and pull the battery up and out of the Unibody.
If the latch is depressed it will lock the battery in place.
Remove the following eight screws securing the lower case to the chassis:
One 5.4 mm Phillips screw.
Three 14 mm Phillips screws.
Four 3.5 mm Phillips screws.
Release the tabs on each side of the chip by simultaneously pushing each tab away from the RAM.
