Don”t forget to clean and re-apply thermal paste if you remove the heat sink. Follow this guide to learn how.
Gently lift each side of the battery connector to pry the connector out of its socket on the logic board.
When you remove these screws, springy metal brackets securing the heat sink will be released. Take care not to lose these screws when the brackets spring free.

On my macbook Pro 2015 it has an extra Square on the heatsink to cover the graphics card. So the Pictures does not look right on this guide. I would share my pictures but it’s not possible in the comments.
I don’t have much to add other than that these squares on the GPU and CPU were hindering my ability to completely clean off the previous thermal paste. I actually would like to remove the squares, but would like to hear from folks who might have a sense of how essential it is for thermal transfer (or any other purpose it serves).
Hey guys when I refreshed the thermal paste on my 2015 15” (top spec) mbp, I noticed four little metallic sponges in that area, one of those came off… I still have it, how critical is it? Should I replace it? If so are there any guides?
I have the same issue as well— 2 of mine came off, and I just stuck them back where they were before and let the pressure of the heat sink hold it in place for now. But any expertise on this issue is appreciated!
