Introduzione

Use this guide to replace the I/O board.

    • Shut down and close your computer. Lay it on a soft surface top-side down.

    • Remove the following ten screws:

    • Two 8 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

    • Eight 2.5 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

    • The special screwdriver needed to remove the 5-point Pentalobe screws can be found here.

    • In this step you will disconnect the battery to help avoid shorting out any components during service.

    • Use the flat end of a spudger to pry both short sides of the battery connector upward to disconnect it from its socket on the logic board.

    • Bend the battery cable slightly away from the logic board so the connector will not accidentally bend back and make contact with its socket.

Great tutorial. I may do this for sure. I get no audio and no microphone on my MacBook air. I took it to Apple and they told me it was hardware and not software. In Settins in Audio, there is no Audio Ouput available and No built in Mic available. Would you imagine this might be what is wrong with my Air?
