thinkpad 490s

2021-07-20, 13:01 PM

Hi

 

 

Is it possible to switch keyboards as I have an Italian ThinkPad 4902 and wish to insert a UK keyboard?

 

Any help would be appreciated

 

Thank you

Monty

Hello monty32!


Welcome to community forums

 

 

Yes it is possible as you have the right FRU number/part number and you can check this on your end through this link; https://support.lenovo.com/ph/en/partslookup#/

Just provide the MTM or the serial number and filter the commodity type to C-cover with keyboard.


Regards

Good day.

 

Something to seriously consider is that swapping the T490s keyboard requires an upper case/keyboard bezel replacement, as the keyboard is integral to the complete assembly. This is basically a full machine tear-down and reassembly.

 

Reference, the T490s HMM: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/tp_t490s_x390_hmm_en.pdf
