    • Repeat the previous two steps to remove the three adhesive strips on the other side of the battery.

    • If any of the adhesive strips broke, you can use high-concentration (>90%) isopropyl alcohol to help remove them:

    • Carefully drip isopropyl alcohol along either edge of the battery, in the recessed part of the upper case, where the adhesive pull tabs were.

    • Applying too much alcohol or applying it outside of the wells in the case where the adhesive sits risks damaging other components.

    • Let the alcohol soak into the adhesive for a minute or two.

    • Use opening picks to gently pry the battery away from the upper case.

  34. MacBook Air 13” Retina Display Late 2018 Battery Replacement, Remove the battery: 步骤 34 中的图像 1,1
    • Remove the battery.

    • Calibrate your newly installed battery: charge it to 100%, and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Unplug and use it normally to drain the battery. When you see the low battery warning, save your work, and keep your laptop on until it goes to sleep due to low battery. Wait at least 5 hours, then charge your laptop uninterrupted to 100%.

    • If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new battery, you may need to reset your MacBook's SMC.

结论

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

Well done article and I acheived my goal of changing out my very puffy old battery for the new one (still need to recycle the old… ASAP). Curiously, I had to open it again as I, somehow, didn’t get the battery cable pushed in far enough and it wasn’t working. Now, all is well. Strangely, even after a couple of attempts at resetting the SMC, my fan is running almost constantly. I’m kind of not sure what to do about that at this point (yes, I used the iFixIt guide to clean my fan as well). Anyway, thanks for the help.

great article, havent used it as yet, but just wanted to check the complexity before I purchased the battery

New battery is in and on 1st round of charging! Thank you very much!!!

As a note, I also purchased some Tesa tape with the battery as the shopping cart recommended it. I used that under the speakers before replacing them. The left & right sides of the batteries are kind of loose, but I’m not overly worried about that as it’s attached to metal backing.

Extremely pleased with this tutorial and the ifixit.com battery replacement kit. Since one of my USB-C ports died and the Apple certified folks told me to expect to pay over $500 to replace the port and battery I came here to sort it out myself. Happy to say with ifixit's awesome parts and tutorials that I have a fully functional Air again for about $150. I also recommend the magnetic project board as this was super helpful in keeping all of the various sized screws organized to the steps.

Great guide, except a small mistake in the required tools: we don't need a T4 screwdriver at all but we do need a T5 screwdriver.
