Here is a link which shows how to open your Kindle Fire HDX 8.9.

Once it is open ( at about 2:33 minutes into the video), you should not have to remove any flex cables, except the battery cable (which is shown being removed at 3:05 minutes into the video) to remove the battery. The video does not show how to remove the battery, but it seems from the video that you should just have to remove any tapes connected over the top of it, check that there are no cables or retaining latches or screws holding it down and gently pry it out of its' position. It may be stuck down with some adhesive on the underside so it may take a bit of gentle persuasion to lift it (see note below). Do not use heat or a sharp implement to remove the battery. You do not want to puncture it or heat it unnecessarily

For installation of a new battery, just reverse the procedure used to remove it.

Note: Here is a link for a Kindle Fire HD 8.9 (it has a different opening procedure and battery etc but if you view it from about 6:10 minutes into the video it shows how to remove the battery from its' position. Yours will possibly be able to be removed the same way.

Hopefully this is of some help.

Hi @sasmzb

Amazon does not appear to sell the battery for your Kindle.

They are available on Ebay here Choose your preferred supplier.


This video shows everything being removed from Kindle Fire HDX 8.9... do you have to remove everything just to replace the battery?

Thanks in advance.
