You can now buy Surface replacement parts in the Microsoft Store

    Microsoft now sells replacement parts for Surface devices like displays, batteries, and SSD drives.

    On Wednesday, the company announced the ability to buy parts for the Surface lineup, which includes tablets and 2-in-1 laptops, as part of a larger initiative to make DIY repair more accessible.

    “Our approach to repairability has been to expand the options for customers to have their devices repaired in a safe, sustainable manner,” said Microsoft VP Tim McGuiggan in the blog post(opens in a new tab). This new offering is for “technically inclined consumers for out-of-warranty, self repair,” he continued.

    Information for troubleshooting, available parts for Surface devices, and service guides are available on the site(opens in a new tab). Necessary tools for making repairs are sold through iFixit. The service is available directly through Microsoft in the U.S., Canada, and France, with authorized commercial sellers in all markets.
