Is there a way to replace the Mac Pro Airport card with a more recent one, like when you insert a recent one in an old macbook pro to get new features such as "unlock my mac with my apple watch" ? This is an interesting question that remains unanswered (until now ?)

You show how to replace it but I can’t buy it from ifixit….why?

Sanong - Replica

Why not start at step 9 and leave the lid attached?

I wondered the exact same thing. I can see zero reason to remove the fan assembly from the top of the machine just to replace the wifi card. The only reason I can see for doing it would be if you drop a screw it’s at least easy to get to, because everything is separate from the core unit.
