Replacement "[" key for an IdeaPad Y480?

2013-09-11, 18:46 PM

I've looked online and all i can find are keys that replace the Y400, Y430, etc. Does anyone know if these keys will be able to fit on a Y480? Or has anyone found somehwere that sells spare Y480 key OR a whole keyboard? Any help would be appreciated as I need to type alot of code this weekend and missing that key is going to be a pain.
