Adding a fingerprint reader to T450s -- possible

Is it feasible/straightforward to add a fingerprint reader to a T450s that came without one? New top plate, etc?

 

 

Thanks...A.

Welcome, AndyinNOLA

You have to replace keyboard bezel with FPR. Its p/n (FRU) depends on some laptop feature I don't know about:
00HN691 - Bezel,KBD, UMA w/FPR
00HN692 - Bezel,KBD, SWG w/FPR

Usually "UMA" means "Integrated Graphics processor" in the systemboard specification. But I can't explain how it relates FPR in the laptop. Also, I don't know what "SWG" means.

To determine, we can compare with keybord bezel installed currently:
00HN693 - Bezel,KBD, UMA w/oFPR
00HN694 - Bezel,KBD, SWG w/oFPR

It should be listed in the laptop parts list, by its serial number or MTM:

And choose appropriate, new bezel with FPR.

Thanks for the info. Is it relatively trivial to replace the top bezel? I've successfully got the back of the T450s off, with those wonderful clips. Not sure what's necessary to get the top panel off.

 

 

Best...A.

Has anyone tried adding the fingerprint reader to a T450s without one successfully?
