 Post subject: Bottom case replacement

I need to replace the bottom case on my 13" MacBook (A1181) due to a broken battery lock. I ordered the part from you, and have been watching the teardown videos. I am wondering if it is possible to move some of the innards en masse, without complete disassembly. For example, would I have to remove the radio antennas, or can the entire logic board assembly be moved as one piece?

Maybe some of this will be obvious once I get the machine open, but I would love to have a list of the steps to follow even if there isn't a specific "bottom case replacement" video. (Of course if such a video exists, please point me to it!)

Thanks for any info. Apple wants $280 for this repair - the part is $50 from you!

You'll need to disconnect most of the cables. You don't want to accidentally tear the cable or damage the socket they are connecting to by leaving them attached.

Thanks. I'm considering video recording, in case I need to go back and figure something out. Maybe I'll submit it as a repair guide if all goes well :)
