Question

How do I get access to remove the keyboard on a Y510 or Y530 model IdeaPad?  I know they are mechanically very similar.

Answer

Unplug laptop and remove battery.

 

1) With small screwdriver inserted between F2 and F3 keys, gently pry up plate above keyboard.

4) Set the plate out of the way above keyboard.

 

5) Starting at sides, unsnap keyboard from top. I use a guitar pick to get it started.
