    i tried following the guide from the owc , but apparently when i open it up ...
    something is different in the speaker part where the 2010 MBP doesn't have the network card attached to the speaker .
    now i'm lost on how to disassemble the optical drive .
    anybody can help / have the guides?

    edit : 2011 13" Macbook Pro

    It would be easier to help if you told us what MBP do you have. There is iFixit teardown of the 2011 15" MBP.

    oh ... sorry
    its a 13" 2011 Macbook Pro

    well i intended to replace the optical drive with a HDD caddy

    i read the teardown guide as well but the network card part seems to be far more complicated to remove compare to the 15" 2011 MBP
