Thinkpad Yoga 14 2-in-1 (20FY0002US) (T460 BB Model) - Replacing keyboard

The instructions/video for removing and replacing the keyboard are quite good. However, I had the following issue when replacing the keyboard.


The instructions say to be in tablet mode when sliding the keyboard back into position. Would this not mean that the keys should be in the recessed position when putting the keyboard back in? That way, when you swing the lid back to normal laptop use, the keys will move become "unrecessed" again. Without this, after I replace the keyboard, I find that the lid cannot be closed any longer.


In other words the sequence I am experiencing is this:

To remove keyboard, move laptop into tablet position. Keys get recessed. I remove the keyboard.

I put the new keyboard in. Keys are not recessed at this stage. 

New keyboard goes in - can't close lid any longer.


Any tricks to this that I am missing?
