Introduction

This guide shows how to replace the battery of the HP Envy x360 m6-w103dx. All you need to complete this guide is a plastic opening tool, a #0 Phillips screwdriver.

If you suspect there are issues with the battery, please refer to the troubleshooting guides here.

Working with a full or hot battery could potentially be hazardous. Allow the battery of the laptop to completely run out of battery, and unplug all connections to the laptop before proceeding with the repair. Also, do not attempt to replace the battery immediately after use as it may be hot.

Thank you Steven for the provided guide, it helped a lot! There are no guides available on the internet particular for the HP Envy x360 m6-w103dx Battery Replacement. And using the IFIXIT tool kit, it was much easier to replace the battery…love these tools. Awesome job!
