    • Place your opened MacBook on a table as pictured.

    • While holding the display and upper case together with your left hand, remove the 6 mm Torx screw from the lower display bracket.

  14. Be sure to hold the display and upper case together with your left hand.  Failure to do so may cause the freed display/upper case to fall, potentially damaging each component.
    • Be sure to hold the display and upper case together with your left hand. Failure to do so may cause the freed display/upper case to fall, potentially damaging each component.

    • Remove the last remaining 6 mm Torx screw securing the display to the upper case.

  15. Grab the upper case with your right hand and rotate it slightly toward the top of the display so the upper display bracket clears the edge of the upper case. Rotate the display slightly away from the upper case. Lift the display away from the upper case, minding any brackets or cables that may get caught.

  16. In the following steps, you will use a heat gun to soften the adhesive securing the outer black border around the underside of the front glass panel to the display. The area the adhesive is applied  to is shown in red in the second picture. With the heat gun set to low, start by heating the outer black border near the upper right corner of the glass panel.
    • In the following steps, you will use a heat gun to soften the adhesive securing the outer black border around the underside of the front glass panel to the display. The area the adhesive is applied to is shown in red in the second picture.

    • With the heat gun set to low, start by heating the outer black border near the upper right corner of the glass panel.

    • Always aim the heat gun away from the soft rubber strip around the display glass. Heating the rubber will cause it to melt slightly, turning its finish from matte to glossy. Touching overheated rubber can cause it to permanently deform.

    • Due to the heat applied, it is normal for a layer of condensation to develop on the inside of the glass panel and/or the outside of the LCD. It can be removed with glass cleaner once the glass is separated from the display.

    • With the panel sufficiently heated, fasten a heavy-duty suction cup near the upper right corner of the display glass.

    • Don't fasten the suction cup on top of the rubber strip around the edge of the display glass.

    • To attach the suction cups we sell, first position the suction cup with the movable handle parallel to the face of the glass panel. While lightly holding the suction cup against the glass, raise the movable handle until it is parallel with the other handle.

    • Slowly and gently pull the corner of the display glass up off the display assembly.

    • If only the top edge of the glass lifts up (as seen in the third picture), repeat steps one and two until you can lift up the corner of the panel.

  17. Gently lift the corner of the display glass enough to insert a spudger between it and the display assembly. Use the flat end of a spudger to gently pry up the adhesive securing the front glass to the display. Pry up the glass panel a few inches away from the upper right corner along the top and right edges of the display.

    • Use a heat gun to soften the adhesive under the black strip along the right side of the front glass panel.

    • Attach a suction cup along the right side of the front glass panel.

    • Pull up on the glass panel while you use the flat end of a spudger to separate it from the rest of the display assembly.

    • Continue working along the right edge of the front display glass until it is separated from the display.

    • It may be helpful to use a guitar pick or another thin plastic object to keep the upper right corner of the front glass panel from sticking back down to the display assembly.

  19. Use your heat gun to soften the adhesive under the black strip along the top edge of the glass display panel. Attach a suction cup near the top edge of the glass display panel and use it to pull the glass panel up off the display.

    • Attach a suction cup near the upper left corner of the glass display panel.

    • Pull up on the suction cup and use the flat end of a spudger to carefully pry the glass display panel out of the display assembly.

    • Once the upper left corner has been separated from the display, it may be helpful to use a guitar pick or another thin plastic object to keep the glass from sticking back down to the display assembly.

    • Pull up on the glass panel while you use the flat end of a spudger to separate it from the rest of the display assembly.

    • Continue working along the left edge of the front display glass until it is separated from the display.

  22. Now that the top, left, and right edges of the glass are free from the display, slowly lift the top edge of the glass panel and gently rotate it out of the display. If necessary, use the flat end of a spudger to free the bottom edge of the glass display panel from the display assembly.
    • Now that the top, left, and right edges of the glass are free from the display, slowly lift the top edge of the glass panel and gently rotate it out of the display.

    • If necessary, use the flat end of a spudger to free the bottom edge of the glass display panel from the display assembly.

    • Before reassembling, be sure to clean both the inside of the glass display panel and the LCD as any dust or fingerprints trapped inside will be annoyingly visible when the machine is on. It is recommended to use a silicon roller and sticky sheets to clean well.

  23. Insert the edge of a plastic opening tool between the display glass and the camera bracket, and run it around the camera bracket to separate it from the display glass. Do not forget to stick the camera bracket down to the new front display glass before reassembly.

  24. During the glass removal process, the  AirPort & iSight data cable may stick to the adhesive on the glass panel, disconnecting it from the camera board as the panel is lifted. If your AirPort & iSight data cable is still connected to the camera board, skip this step. If your objective is to remove the camera board, skip this step as reconnecting the  AirPort & iSight data cable is not necessary. To reconnect the cable, first use the tip of a spudger to remove the piece of foam tape over the AirPort & iSight data cable ZIF socket.

I followed the steps regarding removing the display glass, since my old one needed replacing. Unfortunately it did not come off, even with a good amount of heat from a heat gun. I felt any more heat would start to melt things. Eventually I tried prying a corner, which caused a crack, and ultimately I ended up chipping out tiny shards of glass everywhere. Eventually I got it done, but it was a royal pain. BE CAREFUL AND WEAR SAFETY GLASSES.

There are other guides for replacing the LCD on the 13" Macbook unibody without removing the whole display assembly. I tried this and had some problems when it came to reconnecting the new LCD to the LVDS. The main problem with this is that the LVDS connector cable is very short and therefore there is not a lot of room for plugging it into the LCD. After a while I decided to follow the ifixit guide and remove the display assembly. This made things very easy since I could push the LVDS cable back a little which gave me enough room for reconnecting the LVDS easily.

Removing the glass front was difficult at first. I used a cheap suction cup (not from ifixit) but the glass didn't come off at all. At some point the suction cup broke, the rubber just came off. So I used a hair dryer and a credit card to get into the lower right corner. I started by placing the credit card in the small opening between the edge of the glass and the rubber lip (at right angle). Then I carefully and patiently dug into the corner, and as soon I was in I could carefully detach the glass from its adhesive (frequently using the hairdryer). Maybe I was just lucky, but for me this worked fine.

The rest was pretty easy (except reconnecting the LVDS which was a pain at first; see my other comment). I used permanent double sided tape to put the glass back on, which seems to work just fine.

Ok I tried to remove the front glass with a hair dryer with no success. The back case became so hot I can't even hold it to pull this the suction cup...

So I borrowed a heat gun and it was very easy to remove. I was surprised. I heated until I saw steam inside the panel through the glass. I then pulled hard on one corner ands it came. After that the all glass came easily without reheating.

After the LCD panel exchange I manage to have no dust or finger tips inside and put the glass back on its old tape glu. And shazam !

The MacBook now work great again.

Thank you ifixit.
