Can I replace a T460 non-backlit keyboard to a backlit one?

I recently purchased a T460 to realize that it did not have a backlit keyboard on arrival, I see aftermarket ones online for reasonable prices so I'm curious as to whether or not there is some output on the motherboard I am missing or if it would be just like installing a regular one. 

 

I have seen on forums that people have done it but I am asking specifically for the T460.

No problem.  Backlight keyboard is just swapped in - no other parts.

Are there any drivers I need to install? How is the computer going to recognize that I hit (fn + space)?
