We knew going into the launch of Valves Steam DeckDIY repairs would be easier than most modern electronics. And now it looks like finding replacement parts wont be difficult either. On Friday evening, iFixit prematurely published a list of components it will offer for Valves handheld. The list revealed the company plans to sell spare parts for nearly every component found in Steam Deck, including replacement motherboards complete with the handhelds custom Aerith chipset from AMD.Earlier today we published some pages related to our upcoming parts launch with Valve. These went live earlier than we planned, so we ended up taking them down. If you did get a parts order in, we'll honor it. Stay tuned for the real launch soon! iFixit (@iFixit) May 21, 2022As The Verge points out, the company will even sell parts that could be considered upgrades. For instance, if you own the 64GB or 256GB model, you can buy the 512GB variant's display to get the anti-glare screen that comes on that version of the handheld. For any panel replacements, you can also spend an extra $5 to obtain a Fix Kit that comes with all the tools you need to complete a screen swap.One part iFixit wont sell immediately is replacement batteries. It will offer those at a later date. We dont have a solution for battery repairs on day one, but we are committed to working with Valve to maintain these devices as they age, iFixit CEO Kyle Wiens told The Verge. Battery replacements are going to be essential to making the Steam Deck stand the test of time.Other spare parts that wont be available on day one include replacements for the Steam Decks touchpads and face buttons. Most of the components are reasonably priced. For example, youll need to spend $20 to repair a broken thumbstick. The most expensive part on the list is a new motherboard, which will set you back $350. With a complete handheld from Valve starting at $400, it wont be economical to build your own Steam Deck with parts from iFixit, but for most repairs, the company will have you covered.
