This guide will go over how to remove the screen/display on the Microsoft Surface Pro 5, also known as the Microsoft Surface Pro (2017).

  1. Before you begin, discharge the Surface Pro's battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally damaged during the repair.

    • The display is strongly glued to the frame of the device.

    • To remove the display, first soften the adhesive by applying heat. You can use a heat pad, heat gun, or iOpener. In a pinch, a hair dryer can also work.

    • Be careful when using a heat gun, as too much heat can permanently damage the display and/or battery.

    • Steadily and evenly heat the perimeter of the display until it's too hot to touch, and try to maintain that temperature for several minutes.

  2. Use a suction cup or an iSclack to pull up on the glass and create a slight gap between the glass and the metal frame. If your display is badly cracked, a suction cup may not adhere. It may help to first cover the display with a layer of packing tape. Alternatively, you can superglue your suction cup to the display.

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap.

    • Slide the pick around the sides and bottom of the display to cut the adhesive. Apply more heat as needed.

    • Work carefully—the glass is thin and will crack easily if you try to force it.

    • Separate the top edge last. There are antennas on both sides, so be careful not to damage them. Use more heat or a bit of isopropyl alcohol to help weaken the adhesive.

Hello Caleb, I am having trouble sourcing a replacement screen. Do you have any suggestions?

There are china ones on eBay now.

Why remove the ribbon cables from the motherboard side (where you have to pry off covers) and not from the LCD? Also, do the covers need to be replaced?

I helped remove the LCD. No technical reason other than ease of access. It was easier to reach the connection points on the motherboard than on the LCD screen. The screen doesn’t lift up very far, making it tough to get at those connections on the screen. But either way should work fine.

The covers don’t need to be replaced. They are thin metal and are held in place by the small tabs you see around the edges. Those covers were fairly pliable, robust enough to handle lifting them off. Just don’t go folding them like a piece of paper :)

After replacing the LCD + Digitizer Assembly I have no backlight. The Screen is responsive to touch and does display but you have to hold it at a certain angle to see anything the screen is so dim. Any suggestions for why the backlight may not be working? I reattached the old display and the backlight doesn’t work on it either anymore. I’m hoping that there is just an issue with the LCD Cable…
