Can you replace t410 front mouse buttons???????

2016-09-08, 22:01 PM

Hi, one of the mouse buttons at the front of the pad came apart a few weeks ago, and today so did the second one!  there are a lot of videos showing how to replace a keyboard key, but none about how to replace these mouse buttons.

 

No sign of any damage / broken pieces.

 

Photo attached

 

This is not a machine used alot either.

 

Any help would be greatfully received!

I cannot tell if the plastic clips are damaged without close inspection, but it looks like the 2 rubber cups that provide the spring for the buttons are missing.  I have never done very well getting them to attach to the base and I have tried several adhesives. 

 

You can replace the touchpad from the keyboard, but taking it apart is easier the 2nd time and the cable clips are fragile.
