Video Overview

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your Surface Go 2, use our service manual.

    Final Thoughts
    • This version of the Surface Go is significantly easier to open thanks to the new display adhesive and redesigned interior shields.
    • The use of only one type of screw simplifies repair.
    • The lack of modularity, especially on high-wear ports, makes repairs unnecessarily expensive.
    • Replacement of any part requires removal of the display assembly, an easy (and expensive) part to damage.
    Repairability Score
    Repairability 3 out of 10
    (10 is easiest to repair)


A big part of the Surface’s thermal solution is the aluminum backshell. If they added thermal pads between the back of the CPU and PMIC area of the PCB and the case, it would definitely be a nice touch.

We’ve always got modders to do that.

Does anyone knows if the battery for the surface go 1 is compatible with the surface go 2 and vice versa?

Unfortunately it is soldered to the motherboard
