Then what we need to do is simply flip the Mac over and put it onto its top
If we are concerned about scratches on the top of the Mac, we need to make sure to put something soft under it. In this case, the SSD will be taken out of the Mac. The Mac will be recycled because it has an unfortunate irrecoverable problem with the RAM.
It is powered by the Mac. What we are going to do now is remove the SSD. In order to remove the SSD from the Macbook Air, we're going to need to know where it is. It's near the fan and headphones. There are a series of holes cut in the top of the casing. They serve to diffuse heat as the drive may get hot sometimes during its operation.
To remove the SSD, we need to remove its connecting cable first
This can be done by slowly lifting the black flap. When we've pulled it out, we'll see that the cable will be lifted. We do not want to yank the cable all the way out. This is not necessary. All that we are going to do next is prepare the drive to be removed.
