  1. Microsoft Surface Pro X Sensor Bar Replacement, Open the kickstand: étape 1, image 1 de 2 Microsoft Surface Pro X Sensor Bar Replacement, Open the kickstand: étape 1, image 2 de 2
    • 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 Sensor Bar Replacement, Open the SSD and SIM card door: étape 2, image 1 de 2 Microsoft Surface Pro X Sensor Bar Replacement, Open the SSD and SIM card door: étape 2, image 2 de 2
