Use this guide to replace the display assembly of your MacBook Pro 13" 2020.

For your safety, drain your MacBook Pro's battery below 25% charge before starting repairs.

Some photos in this guide are from a different model and may contain slight visual discrepancies, but they won't affect the guide procedure.

    • Before starting this procedure, you should disable your Mac's Auto Boot feature. Auto Boot powers on your Mac when you open the lid, and may be accidentally triggered during disassembly. Use this guide to disable Auto Boot.

    • If your MacBook is running Big Sur v11.1 or later, disabling Auto Boot may not work. You can proceed normally, but make sure to disconnect the battery as soon as you're inside.

    • Completely power off and unplug your MacBook before you start. Close the display and flip the entire laptop upside-down.

    • Use a P5 Pentalobe driver to remove the six screws securing the lower case:

    • Two 6.8 mm screws
