My Problem

My girlfriend's old MacBook Pro 15 2011 was dead and she hasn't turned it on in the last 3 years. I put my hands on it and I tried to figure out what was wrong. That computer is more powerful than my current MacBook Pro Retina 13 2015, so I decided it was worth investigating.

My Problem

The battery in my five and a half year old Mac Book Pro swelled up and distorted the case.

My Fix

My first step was to remove the old battery to relieve the pressure on the case. I then ordered a cheap replacement from Amazon. It arrived and I installed it. The computer booted up and then kept rebooting . . .

My Problem

At first the issue was with booting up. The MBP would not get past the progress bar screen no matter how long we had waited. Using Command+Option+R+P didn't help. What finally helped was booting it into safe mode. Every boot up after that would work. Yay!

Once it was logged in, performance was abys . . .

My Problem

My 2011 MacBook Pro battery finally died. It had expanded so much, it was pushing the trackpad out of place and I couldn't do much on the machine. Went to Apple, they found the part on ifixit, it went out of stock quickly, I asked to be notified when they had more in, they notified me in the next co . . .

My Problem

Battery worn out, and OS said to "service soon".

My Fix

Ordered replacement from iFixit and installed it with my own tools. A couple screwdrivers, a spudger, and a few minutes time, and I have a new battery! I did have an odd instance of the computer suddenly sleeping (very shortly after typing and clicki . . .

My Problem

I came back from vacation to find this battery had inflated and nearly busted its way out of the bottom case.

My Fix

Only difficulty was that I had to reshape the bottom cover since it had been bent by the expanding battery.

My Problem

Second battery needed replace in two years

My Fix

Very easy, I used the exact driver tips.

My Advice

You can use small slotted driver instead of ones recommended but you risk stripping the screws.

My Problem

My Macbook battery began to fail and expanded to the point of temporarily deforming the aluminum near the trackpad.

My Fix

Using the iFixit pro tech toolkit, I followed the instructions of the build guide. The battery charged in a few hours and proceeded to work fine.

My Advice

In the event that the battery swells, re . . .

My Problem

My battery has reached its maximum cycle count, and was showing "Service Battery".

My Fix

Even though I had a dusty battery screw and the screwdriver won't open it, I managed to clean it and easily take out the battery ( Thanks to iFixit instructions) to install the new one.

My Advice

If you have a dusty screw, use a . . .

My Problem

The original battery was weak.

My Fix

The repair went well

My Advice

Get the tool to remove the screws that hold the battery in place. The driver is a the-pronged tool. Phillips will not work. A really small flat-head screwdriver was used to put them back in. Pliers were needed to get them out. The heads are tapered s . . .
