How To Upgrade SSD On V310-15IKB (80T3

Hi. I bought a V310-15IKB (80T3). It was easy to upgrade the parts with my old Lenovo since all I had to do was remove the screws under the battery and the lid would come out. Now I want to connect my SSD to my new laptopn but I couldn't figure out how I can remove the back lid. I removed all the screws but I can't find a handle to grab. There are tutorials on Youtube for 15IKB, but on all of them, there is another hatch for HDD, but not on my model. I am adding pictures of my computer. I'd be glad if anyone can tell me how to remove the back lid.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

Are you removing the optical drive first if so equipped?  By removing it will allow easier removal of the base cover from the top half.  Page #32 of your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual will explain how to remove the drive.  Starting on page #35 explains the base cover removal.  Here is a link to that manual for your reference......

There is also a Lenovo Training Video for the V510.  Although it is a slightly different model, the technique for removing the base cover should be the same.  Here is a link to that video series....

Thanks for your answer. I hadn't tried removing the optical drive. I'll give it a try and share the results as soon as possible, should anyone have the same problem.

If you are not removing the optical drive, I am also thinking that the drive's retaining screw is helping to hold the cover in place and is preventing the cover from being removed.
