Where to buy genuine Lenovo Parts for an R500?

I want to buy a couple parts for my R500 laptop.  The two rubber feet on the bottom of the laptop fell off and the keyboard is starting to get nasty feeling as the finish strips off.  I have no idea where to look for the rubber feet.  I know you used to be able to buy the keyboard off of Lenovo's Parts and Accessories section, but since they discontinued the R series they have disapeared.  Where can I buy these parts?

Keyboards can be purchased from ebay. The rubber feets come in the miscellaneous kits, which include screw and that.

Give Lenovo warranty a call and see whether they can send you to the IBM parts section and they can sort you out with the necessary parts.

Several; machines use the same keyboards. T60, R60, T61, R61, T400, T500, R400, R500 can be interchanged

I do not respond to requests for private, one-on-one help. Your questions should be posted in the appropriate forum where they may help others as well.

Re: Where to buy genuine Lenovo Parts for an R500?

There's a Lenovo-authorized repair shop & parts warehouse in Akron OH that I have bought many new parts from.  They still advertise the 42T4066 replacement KB (new).   See one of their websites here.   They offer a great variety of new parts.    I believe I just bought the last new R500 KB available on eBay the other day for a bit less than they wanted.  I have literally worn out 3 previous keyboards on my R500 which I bought in Sept. 2006.   I really type a lot.  I would not buy used or refurbished, since I think laptop keyboards don't hold up well to hard service.
