ThinkPad Yoga 14 - Missing Screw

2015-08-18, 19:26 PM

One of the screws on the bottom of my ThinkPad Yoga 14 fell out at some point, and is now missing. It's the one circled in red here:

Is this important? Does it need to be replaced? And if so, where can I get a replacement?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

From looking at your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual it appears that the missing screw just holds the cover in place so it isn't a critical fastener from what I can see.  The missing screw is a M2 x 9mm, flat-head, screw which you should be able to get at any local computer repair shop.

 

For your reference here is a link to the Hardware Maintenance Manual.   The information regarding the back cover starts on page #63.

Good Morning,

 

I am having the same issue with my Z41-70. There is a screw missing on the bottom right side of my laptop, which was just purchased in August 2015. What is the size for the replacement? Is Lenovo able to send replacement screws? Please advise, thanks.

 

Best Regards,

 

-MT

Welcome to the Lenovo Community milez418 !

 

The quickest solution for replacing the missing screw would be to visit a local computer repair center like the Geek Squad over at Best Buy and see if they have a replacement available for you.  According to your model's Hardware Maintenace Manual the bottom cover is held in place with these screws......

 

M2 × 6mm, Phillips head, nylok-coated screws

 

Here is a link to that manual for your reference....
