Missing a step about removing the tiny Phillips head screw under the XPS flip up cover in the middle. Also, there are hooks all the way around the cover so it doesn’t simply lift off.

It’s not that easy to lift actually, cause there are latches. Had t release them gently all around beforehand.

You also do not need to remove any speaker screws or the speaker, you just have to remove the tape holding the speaker wire to the battery.

  • Use tweezers to remove the white connector from its socket by pulling it to the right.

You don’t actually need to do this or remove the speakers at all. You just need to remove the tape holding the speaker wire to the battery.

There is a #00 Phillips under the XPS cover on the bottom. Also one of the #0 screws holding the battery down is #00. It is not necessary to remove the speakers but the wires are taped to the battery so pick and remove the tape.

Took me about 45 minutes.

Couple of complexities:

1. The speaker removal, it’s easier just to unscrew and pull out that way. Moreover, it’s easier the same way to replace, the problem is if you push in the speakers can remain wobbly unless you properly attach to the flexible plastic things.

2. When replacing the screws on the battery, do the little screw first. It shows it on the images, but doesn’t mention it, it’s a different sized screw (step 3).

3. Removing the screws on the back of the laptop is tough unless you have a good screw driver. In the end, I bought one from China from Aliexpress that was bang on what I needed.
