Kindle Fire HD 2013 Repairability Score: 8 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair).

Simple, modular design means the few components that might fail can be easily, inexpensively replaced.

All the fasteners found inside are Torx T5 screws—one non-proprietary screwdriver is all you need.

The LCD is not fused to the display and can be easily removed.

The rear case is a little difficult to open, but it should be easy with directions.

A decent amount of adhesive is used on the battery, meaning some prying and gentle working is required for disassembly.

The glass panel is glued to the front plastic frame, so a heat gun will be required for replacing cracked glass (or you have to replace both components together).
