Will replacing my logic board effect the data or usability of my SSD?

Hey everyone. I'm currently backpacking in Mexico and it appears that my logic board just crapped the bed on my mid 2014 MacBook Pro. I have a lot of files and information on it that I desperately want to keep. I know there is a way to extract the contents of the SSD using a storage enclosure but I'm wondering if I replace my logic board, will my data remain unchanged?? I'm considering buying the storage enclosure just in case but would prefer not to since it's extremely difficult to ship things to Mexico. Any information on this would be much appreciated!

"Hi @sheacameron ,

The data on your SSD should remain intact. The SSD is removable from the laptop on the 2015 models. It is held in place by one screw. Make sure you disconnect the battery first before removing the hard drive!"
