    • First start by peeling off the outer rubbery covering on the bottom of the device.

    • CAUTION: This part is very fragile, so it is recommended that a blow dryer is used on the covering to heat it up. Simply blow dry the covering while slowly peeling it away, and the covering will not tear.

    By the time I needed to open my AirPort Extreme in mid-2019, the adhesive bond to the covering had weakened to the point that the covering readily peeled away cleanly without the application of heat. I just worked slowly and carefully.

    The covering had no residue of adhesive on it after removal, but there was a sheet of adhesive clinging to the plastic surface of the body of the unit. I had to poke holes in it to reach the screws, but that was no big deal and easily done.

    When finished, the rubbery covering adhered to the body of the unit again adequately without the use of additional adhesive or (as I had planned to use) double-sided tape.

    BTW I was not disassembling the unit to replace the battery, but rather to reset the device by bridging the contacts that a broken reset switch failed to connect. (The switch had become detached from the circuit board and was literally hanging by a thread when I opened the case and fell off altogether as I examined it.)

    Thanks for the clear disassembly instructions!

    When I performed this, the rubber had deteriorated(?) and tore quite easily, particularly around the model number label.

    • After removing the rubber covering, unscrew the five 4.9mm Phillips screws in the holes of the plastic casing.

    Use a #0 Phillips driver for these screws. Knowing they are 4.9mm is not necessary unless one needs to be replaced.

    • After unscrewing all five screws, remove the plastic casing. The back should now look like the picture shown.

    • The inner metal casing is latched inside the outer white plastic shell, so insert a pry tool underneath the metal casing and pry it apart from the shell.

    • It should make a click when it comes apart.

    • Remove the outer casing.

    • The exposed logic board should look like this.

    Remove the 3 connectors from the logic board to the antennas before removing the logic board from the metal surround.

    My unit, still A1354, had FOUR antennas. The logic board was labeled 820-2622-A copyright 2009.

    • Remove the metal casing by gently prying the logic board away with you hands.

    • This should be pretty easy, you already removed the screws holding these pieces together.

    • Remove the battery by gently "shoving" it out with the plastic tool.

    Be sure to replace the plastic casing removed in steps 2 and 3 in its original orientation.

    There is a little shield molded into the plastic casing that should line up with the security slot at the far right of the back panel. The shield serves (I presume) to keep stuff from getting through the slot and into the inside of the AirPort where it could cause mischief. Also, if it is in the wrong place, one or more of the screws may not be possible to screw in and/or the casing will be distorted if you force the screw(s) in.

I do have Airport Extreme A1521 6th Gen and when I connect it to 110/220v it won't turn on and light indicator doesn't flash. How do you think it could be bettary or something else such as problem with power supply. Could you tell where I could order such power supple?

Appreciate.

I have an A1354 and it powers up just fine. The problem is that it keeps dropping connection to airport utility on my mac every 5 seconds or so. I came here looking for a potential diagnosis/repair. I didn’t know about the battery. Could that be an issue? It has never been replaced.
