Solved Need tp replace broken battery latch for HP 17-F136DS laptop

Specs: Windows 10, Intel i73.4GHz/12GB DDR3
Hello,

I inherited a new never used HP Pavilion 17-F136DS notebook and had to replace the battery. At first I wasn't able to insert the new battery properly and it was stuck when I tried to release it so I could start over. I finally got it out but I had to apply a little more force on the battery latch that releases the battery. In doing so, latch broke. I had to use a screw driver to slide to the left to accept the new battery which it worked. The laptop powers up find and charges fine as well. Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement latch? I went on eBay, checked Google but I wasn't able to find anything. I tried to put original one back but the clip that holds it in place is broken. Thanks for your help.

You might try hp direct and explain the situation?

Equally try this site - contact them, explain the situation; as they may be able to advise more fully.

I suspect you'll need to replace the base cover of the laptop as that "clip/latch" is probably part of it?

And if you search for one using:

You may find a few other possibles on the web. But first I'd contact hp and ask them if they can advise/help; even if they cost a little?

How old is this model?

Hi trvlr,

Thanks so much! The model is 5 years old my sister-in-law purchased it brand new from HSN but never used it. When I went to charge the battery, it wouldn't take the charge but with the new battery it works fine. I will reach out to HP as well s check out the link. Thanks so much!

Try to determine if any of the other HP 17 series use that same part. You might find a cheap 'parts only' laptop on ebay
