Introduzione

Have your MacBook Pro feet seen better days? Use this guide to give your early 2013 MacBook Pro a fresh set of feet.

    • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Two 2.3 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

    • Eight 3.0 mm P5 Pentalobe screws

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

    • Wedge your fingers between the upper case and the lower case.

    • Gently pull the lower case away from the upper case.

    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

    • During reassembly, gently push down the center of the lower case to reattach the two plastic clips.

    • The lower case is connected to the upper case at the center, with two plastic clips.

    • Peel away any stickers from the backside of the rear case covering the feet you have chosen to replace.

    • Any stickers you remove will most likely be unsalvageable for re-use. That's okay! Your MacBook does not need them to function.

    • Remove any broken or damaged feet.

    • If the foot you are replacing is still intact, you can use your tweezers push it out from the inside.

    • If the old foot is difficult to remove, use a hair dryer or a heat gun to apply some heat to the area and loosen the adhesive.

    • Scrub the foot cavity with adhesive remover to remove any remaining adhesive.

    • Wipe the foot cavity with an isopropyl alcohol prep pad to remove any cleaner residue and prep the area for the adhesive on the new foot.

    • Peel a replacement foot from the plastic backing.

    • The adhesive is fairly strong—make sure that you are peeling the foot up, not tearing the plastic backing.

    • Align the new foot inside the cavity.

    • Make sure the alignment nub on the foot is lined up with the small hole near the perimeter of the pad.

    • You may want to use a pencil to lightly mark where the alignment nub is located. Be careful not to scratch the lower case with your pencil.

    • Lay the foot down while keeping it properly aligned.

    • Check for proper alignment from the inside of the case. The alignment nub should be slightly visible through the alignment hole.

    • Press the new foot into place firmly with your finger, then apply pressure by pinching the foot from either side of the case with your finger and your thumb.

    • Maintain pressure for 30 seconds to set the pressure-sensitive adhesive.

    • Repeat the last seven steps for any remaining broken or worn feet.

Great kit for replacing the feet on a MacBook. Had a foot fall off my 6 year old MacBook Pro and this kit fit exactly!
