Required Tools To Repair A 2015 13″ MacBook Air A1466 Model Family:
Note: If possible, before you begin, ensure that your laptop battery drains by disconnecting it from power & leave it on until the computer turns off on its own. So that you can ensure the least risk of shock to you or the internal printed circuit boards (P.C.B.’s), disconnect the battery before performing any repairs. In general, to help protect yourself and your device you should always wear safety glasses & anti-static nitrile gloves.
- Pentalobe screwdriver (P5): The bottom case uses a proprietary (Apple exclusive) type of screw called a Pentalobe screw. This type of speciality screwdriver is required to remove the bottom case and begin your repair.
- Torx screwdriver (T4 & T5): Torx bits are needed to remove the screws that hold the MacBook components such as the I/O Board, MagSafe port, Audio PCB, Fans, Trackpad, Battery & more.
- Torx screwdriver (T8): The T8 Torx screwdriver is also needed to remove the screws that hold the hinges of the LCD assembly in place.
- Plastic Spudger: A plastic spudger is a tool that helps get in between things and useful to pry apart components with less risk of damaging them. Additionally, you’ll need a spudger or plastic pry tool like one found in TekDep’s pro kit to disconnect some cables and connectors inside of your 13″ MacBook Air A1466.
- Anti-Static Tweezers: With respect to the screws, some of the connectors, cables & many of the internal brackets are very small. For this reason you’ll need a good pair of tweezers to disconnect or reconnect things, pick them up or gently move things out of the way. Just as well, they can be a useful tool to hold on to things as they are inserted back into place.
Sooner or later most electronics will require some maintenance or a repair of some kind and as time goes by there are more and more tutorials & videos available on the web that can help guide you through the process of doing it for yourself.
While that is true, it is important to know that working on a MacBook Air can be challenging.
In general, you need to be very careful when touching, handling, disconnecting or working with the internal parts of any electronic device to avoid hurting yourself or damaging the delicate components inside. You don’t want to damage something else while replacing something.
Additionally, if you haven’t done this kind of thing before or aren’t comfortable performing this type of repair, it is best to take your MacBook Air to a professional. This can give you the best chance of success & the least risk of harm or damage.
