iFixit’s Steam Deck repair guides and parts are live (but the best bits are MIA)

Need to repair your Valve Steam Deck handheld gaming PC? iFixit sells official parts for practically every part of the console – and after they accidentally put those components up for sale on Saturday, most of the collection (and a large collection of repair manuals) is now available to everyone.

Unfortunately, it seems you can’t buy some of the most wanted items if you click now. The motherboard and daughterboards are MIA (if you were hoping to build a FrankenDeck), the fan and screens are out of stock (sorry, upgraders), there are no more thumbsticks, and iFixit only has a literal armful of the Steam Deck’s plastic case halves last we checked.

Here’s the full list of parts iFixit wants to stock in the near future:

Again, iFixit doesn’t have a battery replacement solution yet, noting in a new blog post that the Steam Deck’s glued-in battery makes repairs difficult there.

If you do break open your Deck, keep in mind that an important warning appears to be missing from iFixit’s manuals: remember to remove your microSD card before opening it. Some people have accidentally ripped their cards in half while trying to pull open the snap apart case, which is otherwise pretty easy to open with eight small Phillips head screws plus some plastic clips you need to pry it open with a plastic pry. tool.

We’ve asked iFixit about parts delivery, and we’ll let you know what we hear.
