Bad battery, need to replace

Hello. I think I may need to replace the battery in my Surface pro 2017 if it gets any worse. Two years after I bought it I only get 3 hours of battery life. I see you have a surface pro 4 battery replacement video but I can’t find any specifically for Surface Pro 2017. Do the video and the tools for the Pro 4 also work for the Pro 2017? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I bought a new battery ($50+) then cracked the screen ($200) and then broke the LCD touch screen connector ($10) which I am waiting for. So I’m in it for $260 to “change the battery.” Couldn’t find a place that would do it because the screen tends to crack. Not sure what I would do better next time but you may factor these costs in in making your decision to replace vs. buy new one. I had the same experience as you as far as battery life. I ended up buying a new Surface Pro 7 and am going to use my old one as a back up.

@ilikegreen I would suggest to follow the guides and teardown from here After that proceed carefully the same way as the Surface Pro 4.
