    • Make sure your Surface Pro X is turned off, and laying screen-side down on a soft surface.

    • After turning off your device, make sure to remove the SSD from the Surface before starting any repairs. This will disconnect the battery and prevent damage to the device.

    • Lift the kickstand to at least a 90° angle, so that it is perpendicular to the Surface's screen. The further you open the hinge, the easier it is to access the SSD and SIM card door.

  2. Microsoft Surface Pro X Front Camera Replacement, Open the SSD and SIM card door: étape 2, image 1 de 2 Microsoft Surface Pro X Front Camera Replacement, Open the SSD and SIM card door: étape 2, image 2 de 2

    • Use your finger or a spudger to lift the SSD just enough that it clears the edges of its recess.

    • Don't lift the SSD more than you have to—doing so may damage the SSD or its socket.

    • Gently pull the SSD straight out of its socket.

    • When reinstalling the SSD, be sure it is properly seated before reinstalling its retaining screw.

    • Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes, and be careful not to damage the LCD screen.

    • If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass.

    • Lay overlapping strips of clear packing tape over the Surface’s display until the whole face is covered.

    • This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the display.

    • Do your best to follow the rest of the guide as described. However, once the glass is broken, it will likely continue to crack as you work, and you may need to use a metal prying tool to scoop the glass out.

    • Don't insert the opening pick more than 3 mm while cutting through the adhesive on the right, bottom, and left edge.

    • Lift up on the suction cup to create a gap between the screen and the frame.

    • The gap only needs to be wide enough to slide in an opening pick.

    • Insert an opening pick about 2 mm into the gap. Leave the opening pick in the gap to prevent it from resealing.
