Use this guide to replace a dead AirPort/Bluetooth card to regain Wi-Fi capability.

    • Before proceeding, power down your MacBook. Close the display and lay it on a soft surface, top-side down.

    • Use a P5 Pentalobe driver to remove ten screws securing the lower case, of the following lengths:

    • Two 9 mm screws

    • Eight 2.6 mm screws

    Pulling the fan cable out was terrifying but you actually just pull on the cable itself. No way to get any leverage at the connector to dislodge it. Did come out easily but like I said, scared me!

    Draai de schroefjes voorzichtig los en leg ze op een stabiele plek neer en let erop dat de schroefje een verschillende lengte hebben.

    I thought I could replace my 256 Gb SSD with 512? regards

    Do you have good Test Point Voltages? It appears there are silver colored Test points on the I/O Board. I am working on a water spill and trying to troubleshoot if both the I/O board and the Logic need replaced.

    andrew - Yanıt

    It's probably not necessary but may be a little safer to completely discharge the old battery before replacing it.

    Larry Smith - Yanıt

    tell a model that was not inferior to the speed of the one in the laptop.

    Thank you

    Do i need to order tools separately to replace the battery i just ordered?

    P5 pentalobe screwdrivers are too big! The correct size for these screws are p4 pentalobe. P5 pentalobe was just able, with difficulty, to turn some of the screws. If the screws were at all tight, my p5 was unable to get them out, and started to strip the screws. A p4 screwdriver fit better and removed the screws with ease. (I was using high quality Wiha brand screwdrivers.)

    William Skinner - Yanıt

    Very simple installation. The screwdriver heads were exactly what we’re needed, one head for the outside case screws, the other for the screws holding the battery in place. The computer started right up. Now to see how the battery holds up, but I have a good feeling about this!

    My P5 and the T5 worked perfectly with my early 2015 Air 13”! And it is super fast! Thank you iFixit!

    Pennny Beach - Yanıt

    The supplied kit and instructions worked perfectly!

    Nikolay Andreev - Yanıt

    Comments that the P5 pentalobe are too large are absolutely spot-on. There is no way the P5 pentalobe bit I have will work with the MacBook Air without destroying the screws. Hard target search for P4 pentalobe bit in progress…..

    Bonjour j’aimerais changer mon SSD de 128 Go pour en mettre un de 512 Go. Je ne sais pas ce qu’il faut prendre car il faut qu’il soit compatible avec le macbook air A1466. J’aurais vu un Samsung Evo 970 500 Go mais si je ne me trompe pas, il faut un adaptateur.

    Merci pour votre aide.

    chicco33 - Yanıt

    oui, vous aurez besoin d’un adaptateur, pour completez le changement.

    Dan -

    The tool kit should include tweezers for re-inserting the battery connector.

    P5 pentalobe worked perfectly for me. Instructions were spot-on. Antenna connections were a bit fiddly to refit but got them in ok.

    michaelquinnell - Yanıt

    Maybe the problem some are experiencing is that the designations are confusing (blame Apple rather than iFixit). the P2 is also known as PL1. The P5 is also known as PL4. The P6 is also known as PL5. So it is possible to mistake the P6 (PL5) for the P5 (PL4), meaning it (P6-PL5) will be too big, while the P5 (PL4) will be just right. Sort of a 3 Bears explanation, but it is very confusing.

  1. Wedge your fingers between the display and the lower case and pull upward to pop the lower case off the Air.
    • Wedge your fingers between the display and the lower case and pull upward to pop the lower case off the Air.

    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

    There is a nub on the inside of the case which is attached to the battery. When you try to pull it open, it appears to be attached to the plastic casing of the battery, which sometimes splits. I gently unhooked the nub from the battery before removing the case fully. This seems to happen if the battery has suffered some drop damage (plastic parts broken around screws and parts of plastic frame split). Just an FYI in case your lower case doesn't pull away easily.

    When closing this back up make sure that the antenna cable is tucked away neatly

    Gabriel - Yanıt

    So this is a legit back cover for MacBook Air?

  3. As a precaution against accidental discharge or shock, disconnect the battery connector from the logic board. Grab the clear plastic pull tab attached to the battery connector and pull it toward the front edge of the Air to disconnect the battery from the logic board.

    • Be sure to pull the connector horizontally toward the battery, and not straight up from the Air, or you may damage the socket on the logic board.

    The clear plastic tab is missing on mine. Whoever worked on my laptop before me seems to have ripped it off. Now what?

    mjmorawski - Yanıt

    My plastic tab pulled off the connector. I worked the connection apart using two spurgers, slowly backing it out side to side.

Is there any way to exchange the installed AirPort/Bluetooth Card with a newer one providing W-LAN AC?

Skyynet - Yanıt

Is tihs card is the same as in to Macbook Air 11 ?

Petar Slavchev - Yanıt

is it possible to renew on of the two antenna cables, because mine get broken while lifting it

milankoehnke1995 - Yanıt

Did you ever find the cables for sale anywhere? Thanks.

edwalker263 -

Can I replace this card with a newer one that allows Apple Watch unlock in Sierra?

Aaron - Yanıt

I need the cables too! Does anyone know if they can be sourced anywhere - and also where they connect 'around the back'?

edwalker263 - Yanıt

I broke the cables as well while trying to fix another issue. I simply soldered the cable directly to WiFi/Bluetooth card and it is working fine.

Adnan Anwar -

I have seen cables for sale on eBay but the replacement procedure seemed too complicated. Another thing you can do is get the cable and just solder the wires from current cable to the socket of new cable.

Adnan Anwar -

Thanks Andrew for a writing a great guide! As of 2019, do you or anyone know of a more updated wifi card I could upgrade a mid 2011 macbook air to?
