    • Remove the following pentalobe screws securing the lower case to the MacBook Pro:

      • Eight 3.1 mm

      • Two 2.3 mm

    The number of screws listed here is wrong on my model. I had four of the smaller size.

    Just to add to my comment above (I can't edit it because it's anonymous), my MacBook Pro is a mid-2015 15in model 2.8GHz (A1398; EMC2881). For the bottom case it uses six 3.1mm screws, and four 2.3mm screws at the clutch/hinge side of the MacBook Pro. I tried using a 3.1mm screw at the clutch/hinge end, as described in the main article, and they don't fit. It has to be four 2.3mm screws.

    Removing the screw will void warranty?

    Ok, so here is what I discovered. There is no mobile application for these instructions, while having them on a computer is nice but when the computer you have is the one you are changing the battery on these instruction are of no use. I advise coping them and then paste them in PDF and print them out. Or you better have a photographic memory. I’m just saying.

    • The lower case has two plastic pegs (red) that fit into plastic clips in the upper case (orange).

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

    pretty hard to put it back, so I just remove the clips on the upper case....

    The trick to putting it back on is to guide your fingers to the same level as the clips, and then when you put the case down move your hand from the left side of the case to the right side of the case; applying pressure when you reach the area where the clips are.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.
