Unless you can clean the PCBs and replace the battery, I doubt it’ll survive especially if the motor is bad. I would get the battery replaced if possible, and then try to repair the bare tool. If the tool is beyond repair, then you will probably be better off replacing it with a “tool only” replacement, and letting them know the old one is dead due to liquid if you need to do that.

More then likely, the tool will be a total loss unless you can fix it, or get a pass for accidental damage. If the battery isn't covered you usually get a better deal on 2 packs. I would check that first before risking getting caught.

No, put in for warranty and the just send you a new battery. They have lifetime warranty if you registered it.
