I have the YOGA 90013ISK (the original one), I need to replace a cracked screen. Can I replace it with the new screen from the 920 Vibes (UK name) https://www3.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/yoga/900-series/Yoga-920-Vibes/p/88YG9000860
If so, where can I get one?
If not, what do I need to replace the cracked glass? Do I need to replace the whole unit, or just the glass?

The thing you call the glass is the static discharge digitizer. There is a matrix of VERY fine wires running through it. It cannot be replaced separately. (bonded with adhesive and connected via a non-reusable connection tape) Lenovo replaces the entire lid unit as an assembly. You can replace the entire screen assembly as a unit (keeping the lid and hinges) as a unit, but it is difficult to get the camera and microphone moved without breaking anything and it is difficult to get the lid mounted so that it closes flat. I have never tried, but I think the 920 will not fit.

Thanks very much for your response. So I need part 5D10K26887 ? Lenvo repair seems to be quite disparate in the UK, would you be confident in getting a general PC rapair business to replace the screen?

I don't know. That is the assembly part number listed in the manual. I have always found parts like that to be too expensive and I have either bought a machine with a bad motherboard and put the good parts together, or parted out the machine.
As far as a repair shop, the yoga hinge is difficult to get straight so the lid closes flat. There are a lot of cables that have fragile connections (easy to break) and need to be unplugged and re-plugged. I would be afraid to use someone withouut any experience on that or a similar model.
