Customer Self Replaceable Parts

Zusammenfassung: Refer to the information on what a Customer Self Replaceable (CSR) or Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) is and guidance on how to replaces these parts.



Some component parts are specifically designed for easy customer removal and replacement; such parts are designated as Customer Self-Replaceable (CSR) or Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU). 

When during the troubleshooting, a Dell Technician determines that the repair can be accomplished with a CSR/CRU designated part, Dell ships the designated part directly to the customer, which allows customers to replace parts at their own convenience.

Dell’s Customer Self-Replaceable Parts policies apply to the following products when sold with Basic Hardware Service: Dell Inspiron, XPS, Alienware, Latitude, OptiPlex, Dell Precision, Vostro, PowerEdge, PowerVault, PowerEdge SC, Dell EqualLogic, and Dell/EMC Storage products.
