Is there a way to fix or replace the hinge? The kickstand on my Surface Pro is fine but the left hinge broke so now it won’t hold it up

Joel Hanson - Antwort

Joel - did you find a solution? My left hinge broke a week ago and I’m looking for a solution. Thanks!

Cora Willett -

I’m sorry for the delayed reply. I didn’t check on the hinges when I was working on the guide and unfortunately I don’t have the device still. In my online research, I found that the hinges are replaceable but I wasn’t able to find replacement parts.
