Hi,

I've just noticed that the Upgrading MacBook Hard Disks guide,

http://guides.macrumors.com/Upgrading_MacBook_Hard_Disks

appears to be incomplete - it does not mention removing the L-shaped metal strip covering the hard drive bay and memory slots as described in the Apple guide,

http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/MacBook_13inch_HardDrive_DIY.pdf

I considered editing it myself but I cannot supply the necessary photos at present (and I'm sure someone should have ones which fit in with the existing ones). If no one else can do it I'll have a go at some point but not sure when I'll get around to it.

Just thought I'd point it out,

Alec

Isn't the L shaped strip just covering the RAM? is the HD accessible directly below the battery, though I haven't upgraded the HD in my Macbook...

No, the L shaped strip covers the RAM bays (behind the long section) and HDD bay (behind the short section) as can be seen in this extract from Apple's guide,
