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.

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.
