    • 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).

    • Use the edge of a spudger to pry the battery connector upwards from its socket on the logic board.

    • It is useful to pry upward on both short sides of the connector to "walk" it out of its socket. Be careful with the corners of the connectors, they can be easily broken off.

  4. MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Late 2011 Logic Board Replacement: passo 4, imagem 1 %32
    • Bend the battery cable slightly away from its socket on the logic board so it does not accidentally connect itself while you work.

  5. MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Late 2011 Logic Board Replacement, Fan: passo 5, imagem 1 %32 MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Late 2011 Logic Board Replacement, Fan: passo 5, imagem 2 %32 MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Late 2011 Logic Board Replacement, Fan: passo 5, imagem 3 %32
    • Use the edge of a spudger to gently pry the fan connector up and out of its socket on the logic board.

    • It is useful to twist the spudger axially from beneath the fan cable wires to release the connector.

    • The fan socket and the fan connector can be seen in the second and third pictures. Be careful not to break the plastic fan socket off the logic board as you use your spudger to lift the fan connector straight up and out of its socket. The layout of the logic board shown in the second picture may look slightly different than your machine but the fan socket is the same.

  6. MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Late 2011 Logic Board Replacement: passo 6, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the following three screws securing the fan to the logic board:

    • One 7.2 mm T6 Torx screw

    • Two 5.3 mm T6 Torx screws

    • Disconnect the camera cable from the logic board.

    • Pull the cable parallel to the face of the logic board. Pulling the cable upward may damage the logic board or the cable itself.

    • Disconnect the following four cables:

    • AirPort/Bluetooth cable

    • Optical drive cable

    • Hard drive cable

    • Trackpad cable

    • To disconnect the cables, use the flat end of a spudger to pry their connectors up from the sockets on the logic board.

    • Use your fingernail to flip up the retaining flap on the keyboard ribbon cable ZIF socket.

    • Be sure you are prying up on the hinged retaining flap, not the socket itself.

    • Use the tip of a spudger to pull the keyboard ribbon cable out of its socket.

    • The cable may be difficult to insert. If you are having trouble, temporarily attach a piece of tape to the cable to help you guide the cable into the socket.

    • Grab the plastic pull tab secured to the display data cable lock and rotate it toward the DC-In side of the computer.

    • Pull the display data cable straight out of its socket on the logic board.

    • Do not lift up on the display data cable, as its socket is very fragile. Pull the cable parallel to the face of the logic board.

    • Remove the following nine screws:

    • Five 3.6 mm T6 Torx screws

    • Without flexing the board, maneuver it out of the upper case, minding the flexible connection to the DC-In board that may get caught in the upper case.

    • Remove the logic board.

  20. MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Late 2011 Logic Board Replacement, Left Speaker: passo 20, imagem 1 %32
    • De-route the microphone cable from its slot molded into the left speaker enclosure.

    • Pull the MagSafe DC-In board cable toward the heat sink to disconnect it from the logic board.

    • Remove the DC-In board.

  27. MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Late 2011 Logic Board Replacement: passo 27, imagem 1 %32 MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Late 2011 Logic Board Replacement: passo 27, imagem 2 %32
    • Remove the three 8.4 mm #1 Phillips screws securing the heat sink to the logic board.

    • Don't lose the springs held under each of the screws.

    • Carefully remove the heat sink from the processor.

    • If the heat sink seems to be stuck, it may be helpful to gently pry it off the processor with a plastic spudger. Be careful not to break any surface mount components on the processor while prying.

    • Be sure to clean off the old thermal paste and apply a new layer before you reinstall the heat sink. We have a guide that makes it easy.

    • Repeat this process to remove the second RAM chip.

    • Logic board remains.

Great Guide thank you Phillip for providing it here. I could not have brought my MacBook Pro back to life without it! I used it to swap logic boards from a case damaged, but working MC724 into a water damaged MD313 with a pristine case.

Hello guys,

I have a question for you : if i need to change my macbook pro early 2011 logic board (the one with the core i5 2.3ghz) with a late 2011 logic board (core i5 2.8Ghz). will it work ? thanks a ton for any input on that matter !

guillaume polizzi - Responder

Should be fine Guillaume, things to note are: The serial number will give the old info of the old main board. Also the CPU cooler my be different, on 1 I noticed the cooler has 2 fans on the 2.3Mhz it has 1. Assuming you have both cases in front of you, I don't see to much of an issue.

I would advise taking the memory out sooner then the last step, as while your trying to maneuver everything around it seems the sticks could get in one's way or even worse break off the retaining tabs for the memory.

Hey guys, I changed my logic board but now I’m not getting any audio. The headphones nor the speakers seems to be working. Can anyone assist me or suggest what can be done to fix this?
