I've ask a simylar question some day ago.

Here the link: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-500-14-quot-void-warranty/m-p/3283233#M39428

 

After i've call to Lenovo Support and i've ask more informations....answer is that i can change my RAM and My Hard Disk without void warranty, but if when i do it i damage other notebook parts (Eg. Motherboard, battery, etc) warranty doen't cover damage caused by me in the process of replacing parts.

 

I've buy a new Lenovo one week ago and next week i upgrade hard disk and Ram memory.

 

Bye

In order to replace the RAM you have to remove the rear cover, so it would void your warranty if you did it yourself, but an authorized Lenovo Service Center should be able to do it for you and keep your warranty intact, just be sure to keep your receipt, and verify with them first that they are authorized to work on Yoga models, and that your warranty will not be affected.

 

Here is a list of authorized Lenovo Service Centers
