  • MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2009 Lower Case Replacement

    Compare the short screws carefully before reinstalling them. The shouldered screws go in the holes on the front edge.

  • MacBook Unibody Model A1278 Logic Board Replacement

    On my MacBook, the screw nearest the optical drive is 5mm long.

    When replacing the logic board, route the DC-In cable around the front side of the aluminum post.

  • These are just the steps to remove the battery. For the trackpad itself see the Early 2011 Trackpad guide.

  • I found it more convenient to lay the computer keyboard-down on a table with the display hanging over the edge while performing steps 11–15.
