Yes, VERY EASY. Just installed it into my 2012 17inch Macbook pro. Same as my 2009. Flip over, make sure its off. Take out all the screws, and note there are 3 LONG ONES!! Then, from the back, or vent area, grag the metal and pull straight toward you, giving even pressure. You should hear some snaps. Don't worry, they are clips. Then with the cover off, Look at the bottom left, 17 inch, or bottom right for your HDD. Touch a metal surface to discharge all of your static. Then, with the same screwdriver you used to take off the back, find the black bracket just above the HDD. It has 2 black screws. Loosen them and take that off. Now from the pulltab, pull the HDD toward you, sliding it away from the opposite end of the clip. Now with it loos in the air, gently pry the SATA connections away from the HDD. There you have your HDD out! Now there are 4 Torx screws on either side. Take those and put them on your SSD. Reinstall in reverse. DONE! Takes less than 5 mins.
