Thinkpad Edge E520 Replacement Key

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E520 Laptop.

It is currently missing one key from the keyboard which is the left shift key

I need to replace it as its for a client but I checked all the laptop keys website and couldnt find any replacement key for it.

Im not sure what to do. I have also checked on the Lenovo support and couldnt find anything to do with keys.

Would I need to buy a replacement keyboard instead.

Could anyone on here or Lenovo help me get a key for this laptop model.

Re: Thinkpad Edge E520 Replacement Key

Hi Mandeep and welcome to the community,


Lenovo never did sell single keys that I know of and the key companies probably have keys that fit it, but they don't know yet what keys will fit your keyboard.


So, I think you'll probably have to bite the bullet and buy a new keyboard.  


Here's your hardware maintenance manual .  On page 144 are the part numbers for the keyboard and on page 71 are disassembly instructions for the same.
