iFixit Steam Deck Replacement Parts to Let You Fix Anything

Share: twitterTweet facebookShare

The teardown and repair experts at iFixit pulled the trigger on publishing listings for replacement parts for Valve’s Steam Deck a little too early on Saturday (via The Verge).

Valve launched the Steam Deck back in February. The portable gaming PC was promptly torn down by iFixit for an assessment of its repairability, with the teardown experts deeming it “impressively repairable.”

Valve took its commitment to the Deck’s repairability to the next level when it announced it would make spare parts readily available to customers through a partnership with iFixit.

The company is now preparing to start taking orders for Steam Deck replacement parts, and it accidentally revealed which parts will be available and how much they will cost when by prematurely publishing the order pages.

The Steam Deck’s battery, arguably the handheld gaming console’s most consumable component, is notably missing from the list. iFixit CEO Kyle Wiens told The Verge that the company won’t be able to offer battery replacements on day one, but is working with Valve to make it happen.

Barring the battery, iFixit’s list of available parts covers almost anything a Steam Deck owner could want to replace to breathe new life into their device. The thumbsticks in particular are bound to be popular buys given how rampant joystick drift is on essentially every handheld and controller that has one.

The Valve-iFixit partnership goes beyond just offering replacement parts by also providing the tools required for DIY repairs (as part of the “Fix Kit” versions of available parts), as well as repair guides.

Following the leak, iFixit sent out a tweet saying the company would honour any orders people managed to place while the listings remained online.
