T460p Different Bezels depending on screen resolution

2019-02-01, 20:33 PM

I'm wondering if anyone knows the difference in the bezels for the T460p, there's 2, one for FHD and another WQHD.

More than a year ago I installed a Panasonic WQHD to my T460p that came with FHD screen, I noticed that when reassembling the front LCD bezel there's some gap on the bottom left corner just where the eDP cable goes. So, there should be some cutouts on the WQHD bezel cover that allows for a proper fit. Has anyone attempted this upgrade? I'm considering buying the corresponding FRU's over AliExpress to get proper fitting and aesthetics, but maybe I could save some cash by doing some modifications but that is also necessary on the LCD base cover not just the bezel.

FHD parts:
01AV919 N LCDBEZEL,w/Camera,FHD
01AV914 N LCDCover,BLK,plastic,FHD

WQHD
01AV917 N LCDBEZEL,w/Camera,WQHD
01AV913 N LCDCover,BLK,plastic,WQHD

Here's how it looks with the WQHD screen on and off the front bezel:

I haven't done it so I cannot give you and answer to your question, but I have changed quite a few lids and you should consider getting replacement antenna wires at the same time.  The antennas are attached along the top edge with strong adhesive, and it is hard to reuse them and get them to lie flat.  Also, some of the camera modules are also stuck down and the module is easy to brake, especially the first time you try to do it.

Thanks for your reply richk, sounds like too much hassle and costs in order to just fix the bulge on on the left side of the screen.
