Gently insert a plastic opening tool near the top of the Nexus 7 between the rear panel and the front panel assembly.

  • Carefully run the plastic opening tool along the top edge to pry the rear panel away from the front panel assembly of the Nexus 7.

My Nexus 7 looks nothing like this. These instructions are horrible as they do not work.

  • Using the tip of a spudger, push first on one side then the other to "walk" the battery cable straight out of its socket on the motherboard.

I have the newer version of Nexus and the battery connection inside is different from pictured here. I can't seem to get any part of the connector backed out. Any further details about how to accomplish this step?

After my post I tried it again, and realized the connector comes straight UP, not OUT. Once I went this direction, the process was simple.

I followed this, everything worked fine. Even though the battery is now charging, the OS doesn't recognise when the USB cable is connected to a wall socket or a PC. The battery icon when the tablet is shut down shows charging so it works, but the OS in itself doesn't seem to know about it...any ideas?

Thanks for your guide. It makes the process very straightforward. Easier than I was expecting.

Les Gordon - Ответить

Superb easy to follow guide. Thanks greatly, the nexus 7 lives on ! Just need to patiently wait for it charging now !

stuart - Ответить

Yes, this is a really helpful guide. I wouldn't have had a clue without it, but it all turned out to be very simple. Thanks a lot!

I managed to break one of the two small golden pins to the right of the battery cable (obscured by the tool in the picture above).

Is this terminal (sorry for the pun)?

I tried re-assembling (without screwing the assembly back to the bezel) and the display doesn't work.

Step 6 could be much clearer. I thought it meant to pry the connector upward, away from the surface. When I did this, all the pins broke off. The correct procedure would appear to be to slide the connector along the surface toward the wire side and battery, leaving the pins at parallel to the surface.

Unfortunately I don't think my Nexus 7 is salveagable now.

Watching a YouTube video helped. Dislodge the battery first, then pull the battery away from the connector and the connector will become dislodged quite easily.

  • Wedge the flat end of a spudger inbetween the battery and the front panel assembly.

  • Run the flat end of a spudger along the top edge of the battery to separate it from the adhesive securing it to the front panel assembly.

  • Do not excessively bend the battery connector board. Be especially careful when prying up around the top left edge of the battery.

  • Wedge the flat end of a spudger between the bottom right corner of the battery and the front panel assembly.

  • Carefully run the spudger along the bottom edge of the battery while slowly lifting the battery to completely separate it from the adhesive securing it to the front panel assembly.

  • Grasp the lower right corner of the battery and rotate it upwards to remove it from the front panel assembly.

  • If you encounter any resistance from the remaining adhesive, simply use the flat end of a spudger to remove the excess adhesive.

Will you guys be making the Nexus 7 battery available through your site?

gabances - Ответить

My battery says me3 puj1. Will this kit work to replace that battery?

Crys -

Thank you so much for this! I had dropped my nexus from about 2 feet onto a carpet and knocked the battery cable loose ( a know problem) but your set by step directions encouraged me to fix it myself instead of sending the whole thing back to Google.

Donald McAtee - Ответить

is it possible to add qi charging by replacing the stock battery with a different one? if so, which battery?

Mabel Xu - Ответить

On the scale of iFixits I've done, this ranks as nearly trivial.

I had success by pushing against the adhesive from the right edges of the battery rather than trying to run the spudger around all the edges.

Total fix-it time: 5 mins.

armadilo - Ответить

I can't get anything between the rear and front panels... plastic nor metal. What's the secret to getting it started?

paddymariposa - Ответить

never mind, finally got in by taking out the sim card slot filler (I don't have a sim card, but got the option just in case)

paddymariposa - Ответить

After battery is taken out of Nexus 7 is how can it be checked using a stand alone battery tester? Specifically, which pins on cable should be pinged? Coming out of battery there are 2 black leads, 2 red leads, one white and one yellow lead? Also, please make an article to check confirm Nexus 7 charging system is working or not. Thank you.

I have a Nexus 7, My daughter forced the charger plug and now not recognized. The card is integrated on the motherboard? You can not change?

Hugo Geo - Ответить

Hugo, just replace the small board. The charger plug and audio socket are on a sub-board. Very easy to do once you have the Nexus open and the battery disconnected. You can buy the board from Amazon for about £15.

I've done some iPad repairs, but this was so easy in comparison. It took less than 15 minutes to complete.

romard - Ответить

Great guide i just changed the battery on my nexus & and this couldn't have been easier, you saved me a lot of money. Bought the battery from the link you provided (Asus EU supply i think) and the guide was so simple to follow. My nexus works just fine now. Thank You.

Rayn - Ответить

Toolkit keeps paying for itself

snugglypie - Ответить

Worked for me. Much thanks. Had to wait for replacement battery from China. so far so good.

steve b - Ответить

This is a very easy fix it you have both the recommended tools, follow the instructions and be gentle with stuff. Thanks guys.

Robert Leonard - Ответить

Will this work for the google nexus 7, 32 gig?

thomasina1987 - Ответить

Does anyone know if the new generation battery will work in the old nexus7?

CreeegO - Ответить

Finding this online site is a welcome reprieve from guessing how to repair things. Thank you for providing a way to present difficult issues in easy to read/understand format.

Not only was this tutorial extremely helpful, a youtube video showing how to open a tablet with fingernails shows the design philosophy of impenetrable Apple products to Google's easy access. I was amazed how easy it was to pry open a corner and work a plastic pen clip along the cover to unsnap it. Two years of steady use appears to wear out the battery so a replacement is already on order.

f dryer - Ответить

thanks again the kit has well and truly paid for itself and it gives a million dollars satisfaction to fix the (deliberatly made ) unfixable

snugglypie - Ответить

Do you have any advice, thoughts, or suggestions if we were successfully able to replace the battery but the device will no longer charge after replacing the battery? The tablet worked fine with the new battery but would not charge and now that the battery has died the device is appears to be bricked.

Peter - Ответить

My original ASUS battery was junk less than a year after I bought the Nexus 7. Does anyone know about any of the following...

1. I'm told that ASUS brand batteries for the Nexus 7 have not been made for quite a while, so any bought now would be old stock. Is this correct?

2. A lot of the new unbranded (or non-ASUS brand) batteries I see listed for sale are 4270mAh, whereas the original was 4325mAh. Are they okay to use, or is it better to find an ASUS brand 4325mAh battery?

Instructions were dead on correct. No issues, went like a charm. Many thanks!
