• MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 Upper Case Replacement

    As everyone has said, the front clips by the DVD can be really tight. Use the spudger to pry the top and bottom halves apart. Slow work it in from one side to separate the top and bottom.

    When reassembling the case, work the front clips by the DVD drive back in first. Once you slide them back in, the rest of the case fits easily.
