MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Battery Replacement

45 minutes


My Problem

I needed a new battery.

My Fix

Very well! It worked perfectly!

My Advice

To remove the glued batteries I used an iFixit putty knife and heated it with a miniature blowtorch. Then I placed the heated iFixit putty knife underneath the batteries which melted the glue and enabled me to lift the batteries out. The battery removal was quicker than I expected.
