*Creators note. This is my personal device that my daughter actually dropped and cracked the glass. While I plan to fix the screen, at the time of writing, it’s such a new device, I cannot find replacement parts.

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your Lenovo Chromebook Duet (ZA6F0016US), use our service manual.

  16. Looks like some little pull tabs keep the battery in. I guess we can't have everything. But I'm happy for pull tabs and not just some adhesive I'd have to dissolve and slowly pry at. I'm going to keep this part in, since this tablet still works 100%, and I will be reassembling. The model reads L16D2P31 It is a 7000mAh

  19. While I'm not office iFixt it, I'd say, in my experience I'd give this a 8 out of 10, for repairabily.

    • On the up side, the screen is held in with clips, meaning no adhsive or heating to open the tablet, unlike what seems every other tablet I work on these days. Lets hope repalcemt parts come in the frame, not require we move the plastic frame over to the new screen. Most of the parts are modular, including the charging port and buttons.

    • Also on the upside, all the screws are the same size, which makes for easy reassembly. The speakers are also pretty easy replace.

    • on the down side, the battery is adhered in, and some parts, like the WiFi chip are soldered on. However, looking at this from a Tablet perspective, and not a PC, that's to be expected. It does look like it might be replaceable, even if it is soldered.

    • I hope to provide updates on this device once I see what replacement parts are like, as well as cost.
