There's lots of mentioning of pulling and prying things out of sockets. Do they connect back on easily or require adhesive or anything? Could the logic board be reinstalled without any extra tools (keeping CPU in)?

Excellent tutorial, I completed it with ease. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to remove the logic board in a methodical manner. Thank you so much!!

When replacing the logic board it is actually not neccessary to disconnect the WiFi antenna connectors from the board. It is far easier to leave the very small and fragile connectors in place, as you are required to remove the entire WiFi board and install it on the new logic board anyway. This saves you the fear of breaking off RF connectors.

Ok, so I decided to clean the fans of my out of warranty MacBook Pro mid 2014 15". Before doing anything (like disassembling the fans) I disconnected the battery connector and started the cleaning (with a very soft brush). I accidentally misplaced the screws on the left fan by putting 4.4 mm T5 Torx screw in place of the 3.9 mm T5 Wide Head Torx screw. Now the mac looks dead. No light on the magsafe, no power on no nothing.

Does anyone know if the threads for the screw go all the way out of the motherboard or i just destroyed some layer of the motherboard ?

Please let me know ANYONE i'm desperate!
