LCD Screen on Asus UX303LA
Any guides on replacing the screen on UX303L?
A little late to this conversation, but the previous reply didn’t provide the answer I was looking for, so here’s my own answer I found:
UX303L Screen Cover Replacement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RiSlOaL...
The video is in German, but you can turn on the English caption. It shows a tear-down of the screen, but replaces the cover and not the screen itself (close enough).

This video shows the screen replacement of another model, but I found this a more comprehensive guide; mentioning how to pry open the screen assembly.
So the hinge on my laptop broke about 6 months ago (actually not the hinge, its the part that the hinge is screwed to on the LCD back cover). I took it all apart and epoxied the little “standoff” nuts to the back cover, and it lasted until a few days ago. After doing some searching, it seems there are quite a few videos out there that show repairs on ux303’s with a bezel around the screen that sort of pops off, exposing four screws that hold the screen to the back cover. However, mine (UX303-LB) is a touchscreen (wish I hadn’t gotten that, I keep it turned off anyway), and doesn’t have a bezel that pops off exposing screws. I FINALLY found a video that shows how to remove the screen from the back cover. Turns out it just sort of pops out.

I found a new back cover with hinges on ebay for about $80. Jesus, that’s expensive for a piece of stamped aluminum, but what are you gonna do? It’s still a !&&* of a lot cheaper than a new computer.
