Use this guide to replace the SSD.

    • Shut down and close your computer. Lay it on a soft surface top-side down.

    • Remove the following ten screws:

      • Two 8 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

      • Eight 2.5 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

    • The special screwdriver needed to remove the 5-point Pentalobe screws can be found here.

    When you say:

    Remove the following ten screws:

    Two 8 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

    Eight 2.5 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

    Do the 8mm & 2.5mm dimensions refer to the LENGTH of those screws, or the size of the pentalobe? That is, are there other sizes of pentalobe drivers like there are for hex, phillips and torx? When only one dimension is provided, it is usually the socket/driver size, not the screw length, maybe since the length cannot be seen when the screw is installed.

    Can I suggest that you clarify your instructions so folks are confident they are only in need of _one_ pentalobe driver?

    Nerdily yours,

    The 8mm and 2.5mm are the length of the screws. One pentalobe P5 screwdriver suffices for all the screws (P5 is implicitly the size of the pentalobe screw heads).

    I sourced all the parts from ifixit, plus a magnetic project mat which I found to be very useful for organising the teardown and reassembly.

    Keep the 2.5mm tiny screws away from the MagSafe connector as they will be attracted and sucked in to the magnet.

    • In this step you will disconnect the battery to help avoid shorting out any components during service.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry both short sides of the battery connector upward to disconnect it from its socket on the logic board.

    • Bend the battery cable slightly away from the logic board so the connector will not accidentally bend back and make contact with its socket.

    When reassembling the connector wire needs to be bent to fit.

    • Remove the single 2.9 mm T5 Torx screw securing the SSD to the logic board.

    • Lift the free end of the SSD just enough to get a good hold of it.

    • Do not excessively lift the end of the SSD.

    • Pull the drive straight out of its socket and remove it from the logic board.

    • When reinstalling the SSD, be sure it is properly seated before reinstalling its retaining screw.

can I use my HD SSD from MB Air 2011MID / 13" to this one, EARLY2014 / 11" ??

To keep my files from my old SSD, I backed it up using Time Machine and restored from that backup during OS installation. Wish this guide was more clear on that, but I’ve successfully upgraded my system!

Daniel - Yanıt

Agree with Daniel on OS installation and transfer of files from old disk. This last step needs to be in this guide for sure, otherwise it is an incomplete fix.

The repair itself went smoothly; the advice to make sure the replacement SSD was properly seated was appropriate.

However, the essential step of transferring the OS from backup was challenging. The replacement SSD (OWC Aura Pro) requires that the computer run High Sierra (macOS 10.13) because of needed firmware, but my computer was running Sierra (macOS 10.12). I installed 10.13 on the SSD that I was about to replace, but this was not sufficient. The replacement SSD was not recognized. The backup from which the system is to be restored also has to run 10.13. I resolved this impasse by booting the computer in target disk mode with a new machine that is running 10.13 and cloning the system from that machine.

The instructions that came with the OWC Aura Pro SSD say, “MacOS 10.13 High Sierra … must be installed on the host computer before installing the OWC Aura Pro SSD.“ This information, along with the fact that the backup must also run High Sierra, should be on this website.
