This guide shows the process of how to replace the battery in your Dell XPS 15 9575. Batteries are consumable components, that will lose their effectiveness over time. If your battery has a significant amount of charge cycles and is losing its ability to hold a charge for a reasonable amount of time, replacing the battery may give your device a new life. Check out our Troubleshooting Page for more information on issues you may be experiencing with your device.

Be sure to dispose of a battery properly, and if it appears to be swollen, exercise cation removing and handling it.

  1. For your safety, please make sure the device is powered off and the A/C adapter is unplugged. Use your T5 Torx driver to remove all eight 3.2mm hex screws holding down the back panel. Wedge an opening pick between the back cover and the base of the board, then slightly lift the tool to pop the clips on the back cover off.

    I found it quite tough to make the initial pick insertion. The easiest point for me was on the rear edge of the laptop just to the outside of the hinge.

    The screws were all same size so no need to remember which came from where.

    There is an off/on switch for the battery to the right of the SSD. You can see a diagram of it on the battery picture above. It advises to turn it off before working with the battery.

  4. Carefully wedge the plastic opening pick between the fan and the interconnect cable. If this position does not release the interconnect cable, slide the opening pick along the edge until it is completely free.

    I have a different cable on my XPS 15 2 in 1. The fan covers were not attached to the cable and remained in place. So only the long thin strip was removed and it came of very easily

    On my 9575, I couldn’t get the entire fan cover off but realized it wasn’t necessary as I was able to get access to the battery connector by just removing the four screws above and moving the bottom section out of the way.

    One of the screws was stripped on my laptop (the one between the fans) and rotated without releasing. I had to remove the other 7 and the battery cable and carefully lift up the battery while undoing the screw to try to pull it out. Thinking about it afterwards, maybe the location in the base that is was screwed into had snapped away rather than the thread being stripped which was why extracting was so problematic.

    • Hold the pick at 35 degrees from the computer and push towards the battery to remove the cable from its socket.

    • Do not push straight into the battery cable as this could damage the adapter.

    • When you disconnect connectors like these, be careful not to dislodge the small surface-mounted components surrounding the socket.

    Study the connector on the new battery carefully and the large photos in this guide so you know which bit to push in which direction. The connector was in very firmly so you have to apply reasonable force very carefully as you must avoid slipping and damaging the motherboard components. I had to try a few different techniques as pushing just the small black plastic rectangle as shown was doing nothing. I found grabbing the sides of the cable with my fingers and wiggling side to side a little helped.

    This connector doesn’t come out easy. Have no idea how the person removed it with the pick as the little plastic rectangle on mine broke easily. What worked for me was to remove all the screws holding the battery so that it’s free. Remove the battery so that’s it’s free and then pull by wires as close to the connectors as you can. It came out easy this way.

    The last bullet seems redundant since the conclusion says the same thing

    The most difficult part of this for me was inserting the new battery cable. This will depend on who manufactured the replacement. It was very stiff and I used a spudger on either side of the connector bit by bit - i.e. push the left side in a bit, then the right side, and repeat until it was fully in. Again, be careful not to gouge the motherboard and don’t cut into the outer cable in the connector.

    The cable was a bit too long on my replacement and curved upwards proud of the battery. I was hoping that pushing down best I could and reassembling would not cause a problem but now the right mouse click on the mouse pad is very stiff and only just works. I think I’ll live with it rather than open up again as I’m just happy that the laptop still works and has a battery that has a decent life.

Completed and I still have a working laptop, Many thanks for the guide.

See inline comments above for issues I faced as it took me 40 minutes to complete - but I was being very careful.
