The backpanel is a bit tricky to remove, but it can be managed.

The "Essential Electronics Toolkit" is very useful! I recommend to order it with the battery.

I am confused because according to dell.com the battery for the XPS 13 9380 is the G7GV0, not the G8VCF (DXGH8) which you are selling here:

The hole for the M1.6x4 screw is too large, allowing the head to go through the hole and not hold the battery. I sawed off the tab from the old battery to use as a washer.
