Introduction

In this guide you will learn how to replace your Asus Vivobook X540SA-BPD0602V battery. Batteries should be replaced every couple of years because they will fail to hold a charge. Batteries (and all other power sources) should be removed if you're going to do any more repairs or replacements within the computer.

  • Using the Philips head #1 screwdriver, remove the ten screws from the back panel. Two top corner screws (12cm), two battery screws (15cm), and six case screws (10cm).

  • Note which screws go where. The two largest are on top of the battery, the next two largest go in the upper corners (close to the hinge) while the smaller ones make up the rest of the case.

  • Use the blue plastic opening tool from the iFixit tool kit to wedge and loosen the seal all the way around the edges. Carefully lift up the keyboard panel to remove it from the case.

  • Disconnect the two keyboard ribbon bands from the motherboard before completing the disassembly. Flip both black hinges open to remove the ribbons. Lightly tug the bands out to complete the process.

  • Do not rip or break the ribbons connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If you do, the two components will no longer able to comunicate with one another.

  • It is recommended to break the seal of the case starting at the upper corners closest to the hinge.

  • After removing the keyboard, remove the batteries. There are two 18650 lithium batteries right below the screen.

  • Very carefully, remove the batteries with the same blue plastic iFixit opening tool used in the first tutorial. Focus your efforts on the combed hinge to the left of the batteries.

  • Be careful not to rip any of the black plastic or the wrap covering around the batteries. Exposed battery parts can lead to explosions. If the case is ripped, re-wrap them, or properly dispose of them. Do not use them.
