    Missing a step about removing the tiny Phillips head screw under the XPS flip up cover in the middle. Also, there are hooks all the way around the cover so it doesn’t simply lift off.

    What about step 3???

    Peter Hecht -

    Please dont hurry , take your Time to follow this procedure. It takes 20 min (not 5) and step 4 requires half of this Time. Good luck.

    +1 Peter Hecht is right - getting the little clips the back is snapped on with is time consuming and a bit fiddly for people not used to “spudging” off covers. Starting from the back is the key those come loose much easier and help with the rest

    No flap or screw on the XPS 9370, just a press-fit latch at the centre of the cover. This can be gently prised off.

    It’s not that easy to lift actually, cause there are latches. Had t release them gently all around beforehand.

    Also there’s one additional screw under that plate on the bottom!

    Maybe the later models are different, since it should be from the front: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFIE2SKs...

    Very difficult step, Proceed very carefull

    Peter Hecht - 回复

    If you are replacing the battery of a 9360 or latter (2016 onward) make sure to do the FRONT first. There are latches on the back that you may break if you try to force it open that way. After prying up the front and the sides, just lift up the front like you would open a hinged box. You shouldn’t feel that much resistance as the back hinges off towards you after you’ve lifted it around 30-40 degrees.

  5. Remove the bottom cover.

  6. Pull the battery cable connector towards the battery to disconnect it from its socket. If the connector is stubborn, push a little at one side, then the other, to "walk" it out of its socket.

    • If you have trouble walking the connector out of the socket, use the point of a spudger to gently push on the connector indent to slide the connector out.

    • Do not pull up.

    • Open the display and press the power button for five seconds to drain any remaining charge from the system.

    DO NOT OPEN THE DISPLAY!!! When I did, on my Dell XPS 13 9360, I cracked something in the top right corner where the power button is, and the plastic part of the button came out. I can still press it, but there is now a gap there and dust can get it.

    I opened they display, very carefull. No problem. Open just enough to press they button.

    Peter Hecht - 回复

    Take care on later models. This is not a breakdown for the 9360, I learned that the hard way.

    Giacomo P - 回复

    Agree with Asher Grossman, open at your peril!

    James White - 回复

    First put the bottom cover back, with 4 screws, one at each corner. Then you can safely open the display and press the button. Then close the display and take the bottom cover off again.

    Patrick Bower - 回复

    I did not do the open display and drain the battery because I did not understand this part and I know my battery was essentially dead, hence why I ordered one. Did everything else and voila! Works perfectly!

Great guide! The two hardest parts were getting the back cover off, and lifting the motherboard to remove the fan. Took me about 30 minutes in total.

John Reeder - 回复

It would be really easier if you remove the battery screws first… there are some steps that were not clear…

Nicolás Jiménez Bautista - 回复

This repair took me about 45 min for a complete novice. “Walking out” the battery connector was only way I could unplug it. There was a retaining bracket overlaying the flat connector (step 8) that I needed to unscrew (2 screws, phillips) before it could be removed. Take care to replace the wire in the wire guides along the fan’s housing prior to reinsertion of the replacement fan. It cannot be done afterwards and the back panel will not be flush. Otherwise, this was an excellent guide and an easy repair.
