I found another visual within the User Manual, which is different from the Service Manual. Take a look at attached, and you can find the user manual from this link - https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/p50_ug_en.pdf ( Starts on Page 122 )

Wow... after sending along my screenshot to Lenovo, this is still the reply I received just now, and it's regarding the Tray Price being $412.00 USD. These parts for their other systems, while slightly different normally range from $10-20.00 USD. Very frustrating.
I have taken the time to review your questions and concerns in regards to the previous quotation. Unfortunately the FRU part pricing that has been provided is indeed accurate. The pricing provided is not negotiable as per existing agreements set between IBM and Lenovo. Automated price changes may occur as per supply and demand - checking at a later date may yield the results you require. As this is the case, we must apologize for any and all inconveniences this may cause.

Yes, and there is no confusion in the matter either, they replied to my e-mail regarding the screen shot to them, and they verified it's 412.00 USD... I'm sure it may just be a temporary price lock to prevent anyone from buying the parts. It could change once they have enough parts for tech support / part sales inventory. "Tech Support - has the freedom to trade out a "part for a part," so, these items are likely reserved for if issues come up with customers who may have already received them in other configuration machines. So, I can understand it, but... it sucks that they didn't prepare enough parts for customers who bought another config with the intentions of upgrading or using their existing drives like me, and I am sure I am not the only one in this boat.
Btw. I have the good-ol speaker pop issue occuring on my P50, might post about it in another thread.

As received from Lenovo US Quotes Dept. (The supposed SATA Cable) --
"Good Morning Kyle,
I have looked into the pricing for FRU # 00UR835. The pricing is listed at $412.00 usd.

00UR835 is NOT the HDD tray. It's the SATA HDD cable for the primary HDD. 00UR835 is in stock. But I didn't know it was that expensive.
00UR836 (SATA HDD cable for 2nd HDD) is out of stock.
I don't think there's a part number (FRU) for the HDD tray.

Here is a post from a German forum. Google translate reveals that the people there were told 2-4 weeks for delivery with a price of 429 Euros.
It's global silliness!
The other part is more of a bracket that wraps around three sides of the drive and snaps into it. You can see it in the HMM diagram on page 63 if you look closely. It has a tab sticking up on one end that you can grab to lift the drive out of the bay. But the text does not mention the bracket, and yes, there is no part number on any Lenovo parts or FRU list.
The bracket is, however, very clear in the Lenovo training video where they show you how to remove and replace it.
