Sorry, that is the purpose of the UEFI password ... To protect the system from any "unauthorized" access including overwriting it. If you could bypass this it would be worthless garbage.

any way to clear UEFI password - Bing video

In short, there's no battery to remove, no jumper or switch to set, no magic words, no back doors, you cannot send it to Microsoft for them to do it either.

The one option which isn't easy would be to replace the motherboard which includes the UEFI and Password. The risk is you'd likely break the screen or damage something in the process. The SSD should be removable from the motherboard although encrypted you can access it with the bitlocker recovery key (assuming you have that).
