Introdução

The Asus Zenbook UX21e has an easily replaced wifi card. After following the battery replacement guide, you unscrew the wifi card, disconnect a couple of cables, and finish by removing the wifi card itself.

Make sure when you are disconnecting the small cables to keep them in their relative positions, as they can be pulled out from the resting area.

  1. Using a T4 Torx screwdriver, unscrew the ten screws lining the bottom cover. Then, proceed to remove the bottom cover by sliding it out parallel toward  the back of the computer.
