IdeaPad Yoga 13 bottom screw type?

2012-11-17, 5:23 AM

Successfully upgraded my RAM tonight to 8gb, but when I went to install the SSD, it turned out that none of my enormous assortment of torx screwdriver heads would work -- the one I had that was small enough wasn't the right torx type. Got the keyboard back together and the RAM works, at least!

 

So, the question for y'all is: What kind of screwdriver do I need to remove the bottom screws?

 

Thanks!

I can confirm that T5 torx works like a charm. Never thought of it as a rare size. My torx drivers go to T4, so T5 is not even the smallest.

Is it possible Lenovo changed the type of screwsthey used for the bottomplate?

My torx5 screwdriver seems to be too big for the screws.

 

Looks more like I might need a TX4 or even TX3, could someone confirm the right size before I order one.

Seems like the T5 screwdriver I'd ordered is much bigger than a true T5 screwdriver. 

So type of the screws is still torx t5, you just have to use the right screwdriver.
