    Samsung's Self Repair program is finally live in a handful of European countries, letting Galaxy device users buy spare parts and toolkits for convenient DIY repairs guided by official instructions. The program covers the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S21, and Galaxy S22 series, as well as the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360. Not the Book 3 series, but the original models.

    The company has now introduced the Self Repair program in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the UK. But there are a couple of caveats.

    Firstly, the Self Repair program for the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 is (and will be) available only in Germany, Italy, Sweden, and the UK.

    And secondly, the Self Repair program for Europe isn't backed by iFixit like it is in the USA, where the program debuted last year.

    Samsung offers critical components at reasonable prices

    For the Galaxy S20, S21, and S22 series, Samsung offers genuine parts such as displays and battery bundles, back glass panels, and USB-C charging port circuit boards. Samsung also offers genuine parts for the Galaxy Book Pro, including front and back cases, screens, batteries, touchpads, power buttons embedded with fingerprint scanners, and rubber feet.

    The screen and battery kit, back panel, and USB-C circuit board for the Galaxy S22 and S22+ set you back around €145, €42, and €40, respectively. The same components for the Galaxy S22 Ultra cost around €200, € 56, and €37. Prices vary by region, but they seem to be only slightly higher than component prices on the free market. Of course, this will vary.

    Interestingly enough, Samsung hasn't partnered with iFixit for the Self Repair program in Europe. As some Samsung fans may know, the company teamed up with iFixit in the USA to provide toolkits and instructions. However, in Europe, the instructions are provided by Samsung on its website, and the toolkits cost around €28.

    Th toolkits for Galaxy smartphone repairs come with a Rexio Care heat pad, a set of six opening picks, a plastic spudger, a suction cup, tweezers, and a Philips PH000 screwdriver.

    Samsung hasn't mentioned other European countries in which the program might go live next. However, Mobile eXperience President TM Roh said: “We are expanding access to our Self Repair program worldwide […],” so there is a chance that more markets will join.
