Revitalize a worn MacBook Pro with a new set of feet.

  1. Remove the following ten screws:
    • Remove the following ten screws:

    • Three 14.4 mm Phillips #00 screws

    • Three 3.5 mm Phillips #00 screws

    • Four 3.5 mm shouldered Phillips #00 screws

    • When replacing the small screws, align them perpendicular to the slight curvature of the case (they don't go straight down).

    How much weight can I save by removing the optical drive?

    You can save a lot of weight if lets say your installing a solid state drive or putting in a second hard drive but if you know that you use the CD/DVD disc drive a lot then you might just want to leave the drive alone.

    Tip: Use one of those weekday pill holders to have a cheep way to store screws you remove and each day of the week can be for different sizes or parts. It has been handy to have (much less expensive than the magnetic mat.

    Hello, where can I buy the screws I need in case I lose one of them?

    I have one stripped screw... How opening without drill it?! Any suggestions please?

    I also stripped a couple screws. I wasn’t able to open it up without drilling. After drilling the heads and removing the cover it was easy to hacksaw the tip and unscrew with a standard driver.

    My top tip - make sure you buy good quality Phillips screwdrivers and a magnetic holder. Cheap screwdrivers won’t get the screws undone safely. Without a magnetic holder you have no chance of getting the tiny crews in and out safely.

    A good Phillips 00 is your friend here. Also, when reinserting the screws, gently start anticlockwise and you wil feel a click at the start of the thread. This tells you you’re in the right place and less likely to cross-thread through force in the wrong place.

    My A1278 hasn't got holes in the backplate?

    The feet just seem to be stuck on with adhesive.

    Do I still have to unscrew the back?

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Rob Haygarth - Yanıt

    Hi Rob,

    If the backplate doesn’t have the holes, you can still use the feet by just glueing them on. You would not have to open the backplate.

    I have been told that if you are using adhesive, you should follow these steps and remove the bottom.

    This way, adhesive doesn’t get inside the machine.

    Larry D Turner - Yanıt

    Hi Larry,

    That is definitely true, if you are adding liquid adhesives. The feet we sell come with adhesive pre-installed on the feet. All you have to do is peel and stick!

Fine tutorial !

I have an ecological proposal: no need of adhesive remover, an alcohol prep on a dish towel is enough to remove any remaining adhesive or residue. Less wastes !
