Ok. I was watching a movie last night when my machine went blackout. I guess that is the battery finally giving up. It won't power up. I do not know if it's already totally dead/damaged beyond repair or just a self-preservation feature to protect itself from further damage. Since I am out of the country in war-torn *********, and won't be able to send the battery replacement kit to a DPO address, I ventured to trying to remove the battery myself in the hopes that I could run the machine without batteries. So far, I managed to do up to step 18 of the ifixit process. (https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/MacBook+Pro+13-Inch+Touch+Bar+Late+2016+Battery+Replacement/124522). My question now before I go on further is, is it possible to just remove the battery without dismantling everything? Do I really have to dismantle everything out just to remove the battery? Thank you in advance.
