G50 - Replacing Casings on Laptop

I have a Lenovo G50. Both the top and bottom casings of the laptop are cracked, making it difficult to open up the laptop safely. I'm looking for a manual that will show me how to replace these. I'm not sure if I will have to completely disassemble the computer or not.

 

The best I can find is the Hardware Maintenance Manual. It doesn't talk about replacing the casings, but does show replacing and disassembling almost everything else. Is there anything better?

What is the exact model (50-40 etc...) of the notebook as the manual covers several types. Also - I have several of them and it needs to see that how to remove it.

Re: G50 - Replacing Casings on Laptop

Replacing the bottom cover and the upper cover should be straight forward. Look at the instructions for removing the system board, the first part should cover the base / upper plate removal procedures to provide access to the system board.

Also - the keyboard replacement procedure should be noted, as the keyboard needs to be removed before removing the upper side.

The diagrams in the maintenance manual should show screw locations.

Good luck.
