Replacement Instructions

Follow the instructions in this sheet carefully. Failure to follow these instructions could damage your equipment and void its warranty.

Note: Written and video instructions covering customer-installable parts are available at http://www.info.apple.com/installparts/.

Warning: During this procedure, keep small parts away from children.

Tools Required

• Jeweler's flat-blade screwdriver (if keyboard is locked)

Opening the Computer

Warning: Always shut down your computer before opening it to avoid damaging its internal components or causing injury. After you shut down the computer, the internal components can be very hot. Let the computer cool down before continuing.

  1. Place your computer on a clean, flat surface.
  2. Shut down your computer and wait thirty minutes before continuing.
  3. Disconnect the power cord and any other cables connected to the computer.
  4. Close the computer, turn it over, and locate the battery latch. (Figure 1)

Use a coin to turn the battery latch 1/4 turn clockwise to unlock the battery. Gently remove the battery.

Removing the battery will prevent you from accidentally turning on the computer.

Warning: Removing the battery before shutting down your computer may result in data loss.

  1. Turn over the computer.
  2. Raise the display so you can access the keyboard.
  3. Make sure the keyboard locking screw, located in the small plastic tab to the left of the Num Lock key (Figure 2), is not in the locked position. Your iBook comes with the keyboard unlocked, so unless you or someone else locked the keyboard, you can skip this step.

To unlock the keyboard, turn the screw 1/2 turn. Figure 2

Bottom Case Replacement Instructions

The following instructions explain how to replace the bottom case on the iBook (14.1 LCD) computer.

Tools

This procedure requires the following tools:

  • Soft cloth
  • Torx T8 screwdriver
  • Black stick (or other nonconductive nylon or plastic tool)
  • 0 Phillips screwdriver

Preliminary Steps

Before you begin, remove the battery.

Procedure

  1. Place the computer upside down on a soft cloth.
  2. Important: To avoid damaging the case, be careful that the screwdriver tip does not slip out of the screw head during removal.

Remove the three screws (two identical screws in the back, one shorter screw in the center of the bottom case).

3. Using a black stick, peel up the three rubber feet from the metal sockets.

Note: When reassembling the computer, do not reuse the feet. Install three new rubber feet.

  1. Remove the three identical Phillips screws from the metal sockets.
  2. Use a black stick to lift out the metal sockets.

Note: When reassembling the computer, note that the metal sockets are keyed. Rotate them until they sit flat against the bottom case.

6. Remove the two identical Phillips screws next to the battery connector.

7. Note the locations of the slots on the bottom case. The computer frame has tabs that fit into slots within the bottom case (six tabs in front; two on each side; three in back). When using a black stick to pry off the bottom case, it helps to know where the slots are as you free the tabs from the slots.

8. In the battery compartment, lift up the corner of the bottom case, and use a black stick or jeweler's flat-blade screwdriver to gently pry up the slot from the inner tabs on the frame.

Ibook Battery Compartment

9. Starting at the battery compartment, use a black stick to carefully pry up the bottom case from the computer.

10. Warning: To avoid damaging the sleep light and other delicate components, do not insert the black stick too far into the computer as you free the bottom case from the computer. Use just the tip of the black stick to pry up the bottom case.

11. Carefully work the black stick around the corners of the bottom case.

  1. The bottom case fits snugly. Use moderate force to remove the remaining tabs from the slots.
  2. When all tabs have been freed from the slots, lift up the bottom case.

Note: When reassembling the computer, be careful not to pinch any cables as you press the bottom case back onto the computer. Check that the bottom case shows no raised surfaces and is fully snapped into place before installing the remaining screws, sockets, and feet.

14. If you are replacing any additional parts at this time, remove the two springs from the battery compartment so they do not fall out and get lost.

Note: When reassembling the computer, make sure that the two springs in the battery connector are in place before installing the bottom case. Each spring has a plastic cap on one end. The cap should fit securely on the spring, and the curved side of the cap should be positioned against the inner frame.

15. Install the replacement bottom case, and reassemble and test the computer.

Bottom Shield Replacement Instructions

The following instructions explain how to replace the bottom shield in the iBook (14.1 LCD) computer.

Tools

  • Soft cloth
  • 0 Phillips screwdriver
  • Black stick (or other nonconductive nylon or plastic tool)

Note: To organize the screws you remove from the computer, use a tray with divided compartments (such as a plastic ice cube tray).

Preliminary Steps

Before you begin, remove the following:

  • Battery
  • Bottom case

1. With the computer on a soft cloth, remove the following screws from the bottom shield:

  • nine identical 6-mm long Phillips screws (two of the screws may be concealed under foil tape at the display hinge)
  • two identical 14.5-mm long Phillips screws
  • one 5-mm long Phillips screw
6mm 6mm

2. Using a black stick, peel up—but do not remove— the strips of tape.

Note: Check for foil tape by the computer latch as well as the areas shown below.
