MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Upper Case Replacement

Replace the Upper Case in your MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013.

Use this guide to replace the upper case. This procedure involves using adhesive remover to remove the battery. Do not reuse the battery after it has been removed, as doing so is a potential safety hazard. Replace it with a new battery.

iFixit adhesive remover is highly flammable. Perform this procedure in a well-ventilated area. Do not smoke or work near an open flame during this procedure.

To minimize risk of damage, turn on your MacBook and allow the battery to fully discharge before starting this procedure. A charged lithium-ion battery can create a dangerous and uncontrollable fire if accidentally punctured. If your battery is swollen, take extra precautions.

Some replacement upper case assemblies may include the trackpad and battery as well. In this case, skip steps 18 through 44.
