In a continued effort to improve repairability since the Right to Repair keeps growing in the United States, Microsoft has partnered up with iFixit to offer tools to make it easier to repair Surface devices.

iFixit is a well-known website that creates guides on how to disassemble devices to show you how they are constructed and give you an idea of how to repair them.

The servicing tools are available for iFixit Pro independent repairers, Microsoft Authorized Service Providers, Microsoft Experience Centers, and Microsoft Commercial customers. Unfortunately, the iFixit tools are not available for regular consumers, but they allow independent businesses to repair or fix Surface devices in their organizations.

According to Microsoft (via Windows Central), the kit includes three tools, weights, and accessories designed by the company and manufactured by iFixit.

The tools will allow technicians “precision debonding and rebonding of adhesive” without damaging the screen or other components to access and repair or replace various parts with the same quality as if you sent the device to Microsoft support for repair.

As part of the tools, you get a Surface Display Bonding Frame tool to reattach the screen to the tablet on Surface Pro 7+, Pro 8, and Pro X.

The Surface Battery Cover tool prevents accidental contact with the motherboard or other components while fixing a Surface Laptop 3, Laptop 4, Laptop Go, Laptop SE, and Laptop Studio. And the Surface Display Debonding tool helps you detach the screen from the device body on Surface Pro 7+, Pro 8, and Pro X.

Although regular users (unless they become iFixit Pro members) won’t be able to get these tools, they are expected to be sold to the rest of the community in the future. Also, Microsoft is committed to expanding access to repair tools for new products.
