The coin lock cap broke off and stripped
The coin operated battery lock cap broke off on my MacBook and the lock itself is stripped.what should i do? The battery doesnt lock now so i have to tape it to the case..plz help
If the switch is stripped and can't be operated with a coin anymore, you can try using superglue (to attach a coin or something else to grab onto) and get enough leverage to twist it back into the locked position.
I've got a similar problem except the lock pinged off whilst in the locked position so I can't actually take the battery out!! To add insult to injury, this only happened when I was about to replace the battery which no longer charges!
Is there a way of removing the bottom case without taking the battery out?
