    So if the (eg) rings are worn you wouldn't fit new ones? I guess you could use some metal deposition method to build them up again, but in a sense that metal is 'new', so you would still be replacing 'parts'.
    As TAIM says, it's all possible but what happens is down to practicality and cost, and that is a fluid thing these days.

    When treated correctly they fail en-masse. They are designed to fail that way. Once failed they are scrap and can only be recycled, they cannot be rebuilt. Once the electrolyte in the lithium battery is polluted with copper there is no way to remove it, that is one of the normal failure methods, there are others and all of the failure methods leave you with a battery that cannot be repaired or rebuilt no matter what facilities you have at your disposal.

    Thatís just normal ageing (and in an unnaturally ideal world) .... what Iím talking about is a complete car Ďcellí assembly Ďfailingí prematurely with one (or more) prematurely deceased smaller cells.
    This is expected too, cos itís not a perfect world
