简介

Use this guide to replace a blown speaker on the left side of your MacBook Air.

    • Before proceeding, close your computer and lay it on a soft surface top-side down.

    • Remove the following ten screws:

      • Two 8 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

      • Eight 2.5 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

    • The special screwdriver needed to remove the eight 5-point Pentalobe screws can be found here.

    I recommend that one of the tools you obtain is a jeweler's loupe that mounts on your glasses. It makes things easier.

    • Remove the following five screws securing the battery to the upper case:

      • Two 5.2 mm T5 Torx screws

      • One 6 mm T5 Torx screw

      • Two 2.6 mm T5 Torx screws

    Don’t be like me! Make sure you use the *other* screw driver, not the one you took the case off with. I got five of them out with the wrong screwdriver, stripped the head on the sixth, got it out with a screw extractor, cut a new slot in it so I could use a normal flat head screw driver on it to put it back in, and then realized….
