I have a x1 c 3rd gen and the battery is getting very old, the run times are getting low and I am thinking of replacing the battery myself hence it is cheaper. Will this void my warranty or am I good?
Thanks in advance....

Welcome to the forum.
Officially the battery in the X1C3 is not considered a “Customer Replaceable Unit” or CRU. If you do the replacement yourself it could void your warranty if you damage anything in the process. In particular make sure that you use a genuine Lenovo battery of the correct part number.
For more information see the HMM pp43-44 and pp56-57.

Thanks for the for the answer!
But what if we say I bought an original, genuine X1C3 battery and replaced it myselft without damaging anything, would you think that I would lose my warranty? Note: I've recently replaced the screen and later on the speakers, by the warranty...
Thanks in advance

This is not an official Lenovo answer. I'm just a customer. But if it was my X1C3 and I had a genuine battery I would do the swap myself. If the replacement is done according to the instructions in the HMM then I do not see how it would invalidate the warranty.
