Before proceeding, unplug and power down your MacBook. Close the display and flip it upside-down.

2015-2017 Macbook models only: To avoid logic board damage, when your MacBook repair is complete but before powering it on, connect it to low-voltage power using a 5-Watt iPhone charger and a USB-C to USB-A cable.

Remove the following eight screws securing the lower case:

Two 1.8 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

Four 2.9 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

Two 6.1 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

Note the orientation of the screws as you remove them—they need to be reinstalled at a slight angle.

Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your device.
