I have an IBM Thinkpad S30 missing a HDD FPC ASM (part # 27L0647 on the Lenovo Japanese site). Where can I order a new one? I'd love to find one. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum!
It's not likely that you can get anything for S30/31 around here...
What is the actual part that your ThinkPad is missing, since abbreviation doesn't mean much to me?

welcome to the forum!
@The only place i know you can try is IBM mantenance parts @ 800-388-7080 (options 2:1:1). tell them you're looking to have this part imported if possible. they will try to acquire it for about 45 days. if they can't procure it by then, they'll stop looking.
the chances of them being able to get this part is highly unlikely so please keep this in mind. i tried getting various s30 parts when i owned one and came up short on everything.

The link below is to a diagram and the part is #12.
The manual calls it a FPC ASM. It's the ribbon cable from the HDD to the input slot inside the computer.
Do you think I could order it from Japan? Have many Japanese students here at the University that I imagine would help me.
Thanks for the input.
