Before you begin, discharge the Surface Pro's battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally damaged during the repair.

The display is strongly glued to the frame of the device.

To remove the display, first soften the adhesive by applying heat. You can use a heat pad, heat gun, or iOpener. In a pinch, a hair dryer can also work.

Be careful when using a heat gun, as too much heat can permanently damage the display and/or battery.

Steadily and evenly heat the perimeter of the display until it's too hot to touch, and try to maintain that temperature for several minutes.
