The Right to Repair movement started with farm equipment, and I can see some logic to that. But it is a completely stupid idea in tightly packed, integrated, surface mounted, conformal coated, waterproofed, modern systems. The ONLY people who should be breaking into these things are highly trained people with the proper tools. There are tiny parts that nobody else could replace. There are dangerous parts that if punctured will harm or even kill kill you. Right to Repair has no business being applied to consumer microelectronic devices. They just are not field repairable.
