The battery connector is no easy pop-off top; it requires some precision spudgering to chase it out of its socket.

After that, it still isn't a perfectly clean getaway—the speaker wires are strategically taped to the battery in a half dozen spots, which we'll have to liberate to free the battery. (Admittedly, it could have been a lot worse.)

These same wires are trapped under the battery screws—so speaker replacement means battery removal. It looks like the XPS has some layering issues.

At least the handy labels tell us which screws go where.
