I did not use the adhesive remover. I found that the guitar pic, when forced, could go through the adhesive. It was not long enough, so using a credit card’s corner and forcing it slowly in, and back and forth, I was able to break the adhesive. I assisted this with a very fine fishing line (dental floss would be better) and a sawing motion under the battery. I did not use hard force. I just took my time and kept lifting up on the battery.
There will be residual adhesive remaining on the computer’s chassis from the battery.. For the most part, this can be removed by a combination of using the card or iFixit guitar pic and pushing against the remaining adhesive. Working at with the fingers will complete the job.
Just take your time….
Just a marvelous follow-up. The computer would power-off at 10% battery remaining. I did the usual resets, etc., but it still would power-off. I decided to go ahead and charge the battery to 100% and let it drain (power adapter unplugged). This time it drained all the way to 0% (wow!) and faded to dark. Nice and eloquently.
Secondly, Facebook, with the old dying battery, would not scroll smoothly as graphics/pictures were loading. I’m assuming the MacBook Pro was throttling back since the battery was on its death bed. Now, with the new battery, this computer is so amazingly fast! FB scrolling is whoooshhh fast on supplying the graphics.
I just hope that Apple will give OS upgrade support for just a couple more years, albeit being nearly a five year old machine. It is speedy, and has all the ports I need (other than having ThunderBolt 2 rather ThunderBolt 3).
Thank you iFixit!
Success! Did not use the solvent, but fishing line and a plastic knife. The guitar pic in the replacement kit was just a bit too short. ;) I appreciate the work everyone has done in writing up hints and tips. The guide’s instructions and images are tops! I approached this job with a bit of fear but saw how nearly everyone was successful. Now, my 2013 model MacBook Pro has long battery life again.
