The Touch Bar in MacBook Pro is one of the most vulnerable components that can fail and require replacement. In this article, we provide you with the instructions on how to do MacBook Pro 15 Touch Bar replacement (without case) yourself. All you need to do is follow the guide and follow the sequence of steps exactly.
To proceed with MacBook Pro 15-inch Touch Bar replacement you will need a Touch Bar, a special Touch Bar removal wire, a hairdryer, tweezers, and a spudger. The wire is necessary to remove the non-working panel from the laptop and is also needed for those who plan to remove the working Touch Bar strip from the donor device. It is recommended to use gloves to ease the process of removing the Touch Bar.
When removing both the working and non-working panels, be very careful not to damage anything. Before you start, switch off the device, disconnect the Touch Bar cable from the connector, and carefully remove it. Remember! The device is held together with glue.
There are five stages in the dismantling process:
Once the Touch Bar is completely disconnected, remove it together with the cable. Proceed carefully without any sudden movements or effort.
If you are using a Touch Bar that you removed from another device, it is recommended that you check it to make sure it works properly. Careless removal of a Touch Bar can damage it, so you should make sure that the device is in good working order before installing it on your MacBook.
You can do this by connecting the panel via a cable to the connectors inside the case. After the Touch Bar is connected, you need to open the notebook and switch on the power. When the operating system boots up, it will be clear whether the Touch Bar works or not. If everything is in order, the Touch Bar will display icons that will respond to finger touches.
Installation of the touch panel is done in the same way as removal, but in the reverse order. It is necessary to lead the cable inside the case, and the panel should be glued. When doing this, it is recommended to use tweezers and a spudger to avoid damaging the connectors when opening and closing.
If you doubt that you will be able to properly remove the Touch Bar and install a new one, it is better to contact Apple service technicians. Careless actions can easily disable the working Touch Bar and may result in a much more expensive repair. The process of replacing the Touch Bar can be viewed in a video.
