Thank you very much for the information. I have one question, though. The new battery works, but it takes a VERY long time to charge. More than a day, in fact. Any idea what could be causing that? Is it possible that one of the connections is not tight enough? If so, which connection might that be?

Thank you.

Very easy instructions. Thank you. My only snag was that the ten screws holding the battery were extremely reluctant to undo. wrecked the IFxit screw driver. Fortunately, I had another one. My tip for anyone doing this little job, is to use quit a lot of downward pressure on the screws. Turn them 1/4 turn anticlockwise and back again. Do this several times until they turn freely. You will then have an easy job. I will replace those screws with a tiny blob of 'Never Seize'.
