Resurrecting an AN515-51 from the parts bin

Hi i've just bought a working aspire but unfortunately its missing parts.

What I wanted to know was whether I could use parts from the AN515-52 and AN515-53 in order to get it fully working again.

Supposedly it works fine, but is midding the SSD, HDD, HDD caddy and cable, Battery, charger, and base cover.

For the battery could I use one designated for the AN515-52?

Also, for the laptop base cover could i use one taken from an AN515-53 as I have seen one available? I can find one for the AN515-51 but it is missing the covers for ram and HDD.

The HDD cable and caddy isn't too much of an issue as I can just put in an M.2 but I would like to get one anyway  for the battery could I use one from the AN515-52?

Any advice would be appreciated.

    Also if i were to use an AN515-52 battery, would I need an AN515-52 charger or AN515-51 charger?

    Or is everything I am asking pointless if they are all the same, except for minor differences in spec.

    The batteries across all the Nitro 5's at the same AFAIK, 45Wh. All AC adapters are purple tip, 135W. You should be fine taking a battery from the 52, and the charger from the 51, for example.

    The base covers may be unique, can't verify that personally.

    Ok my friend:
    a) On the battery, an515-52 or an515-53 models will work on an515-51, see:

    b) On the power adapter, you will need the 135w adapter and the 135w dcin jack cable, as the an515-51 models only come with the gtx1050 or 1050ti video card! The an515-52 or an515-53 model adapters will work on the an515-51, see:

    c) About the lower case, it looks like they are similar! But I'm not sure if the internal fittings are the same! However, all three models share the same hd port and also the hd caddy, see:

    d)On the hd cable, if they are the same size, it must be compatible:

    Do you have the part numbers for the items on the AN515-51. If I can I want to get the parts directly intended for the AN515-51. With the base cover i'm going to try the AN515-53 base cover. Mine has a 7300HQ and a GTX 1050

    Would there be any specific screws that I would need to order as I do not believe that any screws would be included with the parts?
