Screw Maps

Because of the MacBook Air's contoured shape, many components use screws of multiple size and length. Replacing even identically-sized screws in their original locations, especially on the bottom case, ensures the easiest and most intact reassembly.

The screw maps on the following pages (thumbnails below) can be printed on magnetic-backed inkjet paper to allow for precise screw storage and reference during take-apart procedures. (All screws in the MacBook Air contain ferrous material and should adhere to magnetic material.)

Note that because the polarity of the magnetic material faces away from the printed surface, you will need to place two sheets back to back to provide adequate attraction for the screws. However, only the top surface needs the printed image. During disassembly, be sure to lay the sheets in a protected area on a flat surface.
