Safely removing bloated battery

This past week my MBP decided to get “fat” - the battery bloated up - like a group of pillows. (ugh) I ordered a replacement battery + tools from here (iFixit) and am preparing to do the replacement. My concern is - after reading the very detailed instructions - getting the old battery out safely. I’m afraid to do much flexing or manipulating of the battery given it’s condition - any suggestions on the best course of action and safety tips? (I figure to err on more solvent to release the glue so I don’t have to manipulate it as much, but…

Thanks for any suggestions! (Kudos to iFixit for an excellent guide - I’ve printed the pictures so I can tape screws to where they go - so I don’t mix them up)

I have removed a bloated battery from my older MBP 2011 but that’s a whole different animal. I think @danj might be better at answering this then I would be.


Thanks - yeah, I've dealt with plenty of bloated batteries - but not ones that were glued in and required more "handling" than I'd like to give them. :)

It's the "handling" part that I'm seeking advice on...


Exactly why I did not want to give improper advice, because puncturing or tearing a battery is potentially deadly and can cause a fire too. No injuries!


Please post a couple of photos showing just how much this battery has bloated so we can advise you better.

Hello tbieling,

When it comes to removing any battery, you obviously need to be careful. Any puncture, severe bend, or damage can cause it to smoke and or catch fire. First off, if this is your first repair, I would recommend doing this in a garage or near somewhere outside therefore if something does go wrong, you will not be near anything flammable. I have replaced many iPhone batteries myself and some are really stuck on. I can get away using a cheap method that forces the battery out and tears the adhesive, but it is not the same on the MacBooks. It really just comes down to being careful. You can get adhesive remover which if you use enough, may make it as simple as prying, but I doubt you will have enough to do that because they are kept in place almost water tight against the frame. Sadly, the MacBook does not have adhesive strips like the iPhone, so all you can really do is use adhesive remover and heat. I would recommend just following the iFixit guide and you should be fine. Some adhesive remover, heat, and gentle prying and you should be fine. :)

If you do have any issues, reach out or comment and I will be happy to continue assisting your situation. I like it when people try and fix their devices. I started just like you, and here I am. I still have issues, but the experience is the best teaching you can have.

Hope this helps!
