Yoga 500-14ACL Laptop - RJ45 Door Missing - Replacement Parts?

I have been very stupid and managed to break the door protecting the RJ45 connector. Since this is also the part that allows any ethernet cable to be plugged in, I would like to buy a replacement part.

 

On most Lenovo laptops, the door and its FRU number is specified in the parts list of the relevant Hardware Maintenance Manual. This is unfortunately not the case on the Yoga 500-14ACL Laptop (ideapad).

 

Does anyone here know how I can get my hands on a replacement or maybe come up with an alternative solution?

 

Thanks!

If you absolutely cannot find the part online (I haven't looked), you can always surf auction sites looking for the same model being parted out. $20-30 could buy you  a non-working computer or at least the bottom half. You could take the part off of that. Or given the fact you have USB-3 ports available, a simple USB-to-RJ-45 adapter might be a workable solution. I'm guessing you need ethernet for some reason. Otherwise, I'd recommend upgrading to a newer dual-band 80211ac WiFi card.

Please confirm what i am showing is the correct part.  I think you have to replace the entire bottom.  See the attached picture.  IF the part I circled in RED is the part i believe you have to replace the whole bottom.  Sorry.

Choose "covers" on the left side.

 

The part is 5CB0J46659

Yes, that is the correct part. I guess I would have to replace the whole part.

I'll be honest, I was hoping someone had a MacGyver solution in case the part wasn't available, but oh well.

Seeing as I would have to replace the entire bottom, looking for a fried computer to use for parts might be a good idea.

 

You're right that I would like ethernet for a specific reason. The WiFi card I have doesn't have a driver in Linux.I tried replacing it with an Intel AC WiFi card 2 years ago, but I think the BIOS didn't accept it for whatever reason.

 

I like your idea of ethernet via USB3. That might work on Linux too.

And it's inexpensive. Gigabit for 15 bucks, 10/100 for ten.
