I just couldn't let go and dismantled the whole machine.

The video was accurate.

51 screws and about 10 cables to open to change the battery, Well Designed ASUS!

Multimeter showed nice voltage for the old battery, so I'm not sure if my RTC and bios settings will stay on memory now...

How high was the voltage?

From my measurements I think a new battery is around 3.2 V and I think already around 3.0 V might be too low for some devices to work.

Hi you have to remove the back cover. It is a plane CR2032 Battery like in a desktop PC but if you look at the following video you have to disassembly nearly the whole laptop.

You will see the battery at minute 1:11

Hope I could help you.

Title says M51S, but maybe it's closer than alibaba's pic below. Maybe it needs only removing the bottom cover, I'll try...

From what I could see in the youtube clip the battery should be under the black plastic where I marked it with red in the picture above. That's why I think you would have to remove the whole back-cover, the hatch will not be enough. For me it looks like a lot of work to change the battery, but I think it is the same on my Asus laptop from 2015.

I looked at two disassembly videos last night one from a M51S and the other from a M51T and there the battery was at the same spot, so I think it should be on this spot here to.

, BUT there's no battery where it is in that pic.

2 photos from cpu downwards of that alibaba's pic:

(ODD connector is white in my mb, black in alibaba's)

Those 2 metallic poles might be holding something on the backside. Maybe the battery is flipped there?
