Today, Valve has confirmed that iFixit will be their official partner for getting replacement parts for the Steam Deck. Plus, there's a teardown video.
From the official announcement:
Hope everyone’s doing well – 10 days and counting until launch day! We have some exciting news to share. If you watched our Take a look inside Steam Deck video (aka the “please don’t do this” video), you may remember we said certain Steam Deck replacement parts would be available for purchase.
Today, we’re announcing that iFixit will be one of the authorized sellers of Steam Deck replacement parts – as well as replacement parts for the Valve Index VR kit. We are still hammering out the details, and will be sharing more info on this soon.

Valve continued to be clearly consumer-focused with their approach to the Steam Deck. With plenty of the software being open source, releasing the CAD files and now this too. It's pretty amazing and we can't wait to see more from it.
The Steam Deck releases on February 25.
