Step 1 — Lower Case ¶
Remove the following ten screws:
Three 14.4 mm Phillips screws
Three 3.5 mm Phillips screws
Four 3.5 mm shouldered Phillips screws
Step 2 ¶
Use your fingers to pry the lower case away from the body of the MacBook near the vent.
Remove the lower case.
Step 3 — Battery ¶
Use the edge of a spudger to pry the battery connector upwards from its socket on the logic board.
It is useful to pry upward on both short sides of the connector to "walk" it out of its socket.
Step 4 ¶
Bend the battery cable slightly away from its socket on the logic board so it does not accidentally connect itself while you work.
Step 5 — RAM Installation ¶
Pull the two RAM retaining arms away from the center of the RAM module.
The RAM module should "pop" up slightly from its socket.
Step 6 ¶
Pull the RAM module out of its socket.
Repeat this process to remove the second RAM module.
