Hi @meggaines

Well i think it is fairly easy to replace the battery if you have the correct tools, small plus + screw driver head.

Based on the experiences on almost similar models, you will need to remove the screws at the base.

Once the screws has been removed, remove the plastic base to expose the internals.

Remove two screw that were holding onto the battery.

Remove the battery connector from the mainboard and remove the whole battery module.

The concern is to get good batteries.

Im not sure if ifixit does sell dell batteries, of course you may check with dell, with your service tag to check if they do sell the batteries.

Normally for batteries, I tend to look at original if possible and reputable shops, as counterfeit batteries are plenty on market, which safety and power capacity is a concern.

Lastly to add, some experience, some batteries may have detachable cables which you may need to remove out from the old battery and reuse it to connect to the new battery to the mainboard.

Hi @meggaines ,

To add to the answer, here's the service manual for the laptop, taken from this webpage.

Go to p.19 to view the steps to remove the battery. The battery should have a model number on it. If you search online for " Dell (insert battery model number) battery" you should get results for suppliers.

Yes. I’ve done it twice on my 9360. The first time I bought the replacement from Amazon that claimed to be an OEM Dell battery. It looked identical but only lasted about a year before the run time started eroding quickly. About a month ago I purchased one from Dell. They didn’t list it in their online parts inventory so I needed to go through customer service to access it. It was about $130 with tax and free shipping.

You’ll need a tiny torx driver for the tiny perimeter screws and a small phillips for the center screw under the XPS center flap. Slowly wedge a small flat blade to work the bottom off. Carefully remove the small screws that hold the battery in place. Sticky tape holds the wires around the outside edge that can be used again after the new battery is installed. Now that I’ve done it twice I could probably do it again in about 15 minutes.
