Was du brauchst

    • Make sure your Surface Pro X is turned off, and laying screen-side down on a soft surface.

    • After turning off your device, make sure to remove the SSD from the Surface before starting any repairs. This will disconnect the battery and prevent damage to the device.

    • Lift the kickstand to at least a 90° angle, so that it is perpendicular to the Surface's screen. The further you open the hinge, the easier it is to access the SSD and SIM card door.

    • Press firmly to open the door.

    • When reinstalling the SSD, be sure it is properly seated before reinstalling its retaining screw.

How do I order the 2.5 mm screws holding kickstand on. Mine are missing.

kaption93 - Antwort

The hinge replacement guide is vague, there should be one that's more specific. It'd be cool if you gave a link to the kickstand replacement in case the kickstand screw taps are stripped or unusable (sheered screw half in hole).

Otherwise, I thank you for what you do, much appreciated..
