    • 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 driver to remove the following screws:

    • Two 7.9 mm screws

    • Two 7.3 mm screws

    • Six 2.6 mm screws

    • Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your MacBook.

    • The hinges should pull out of the case slightly as the display is moved towards the case.

How to make the True Tone working on the screen from another air?

William Kang - Responder

The screen that your replacing should have true tone built in, it is a part of the display.

h_man08 -

Like iPhones does the display need to be programed to allow true tone to work?

Zuhayr Muse - Responder

Just did the replacement! Was a breeze, just be careful not to over tighten any of the screws past a firm twist. Accident broke the head off a 1.5mm screw using a T3 bit. Didn’t affect the plates ability to cover or apply a firm press downwards, but a unfortunate thing nonetheless.

Caleb Stewart - Responder

After Replacing the display, the new display is dim and the F2 does not brighten the screen. Any resolution to this issue?

Already reset NVRAM and PRAM.
