i am having a T470 without fingerprint.
Are there any possibilities to change the palmrest to a version with fingerprint?
Is only a palmrest needed or also some additional cables or other?

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.
Yes Fingerprint Reader can be added in your system it's just matter of changing the Cover,C Cover, w/ FP (01AX950). No additional cables are required.
I hope the above information helped you.

Hi thx for your answer.
Is the part-nr you send for every T470-model? Can this part-nr bought online by lenovo? And where?
In the hardware maintanance-manual i saw there should be a "fingerprint-card" placed on the mainboard?
Is this fingerprint-card already on my motherboard?
In the bios i see the option for enable/disable fingerprint. Maybe only the palm-rest is needed?
In the fingerprint-hole there is no fingerprint-sensor. Where is this part?

I would like to clear myself P/N for Fingerprint Reader is (01AX699) MECH_ASM,FPR,BKT,FFC 8P CBL and also you'll require C Cover ie., Palmrest w/ FP (01AX950) as your existing system doesn't contains the required hole for Fingerprint Reader.
Also this is the video guide for Assembly of Fingerprint Reader and sorry for not making my point precise in my first reply.
If you have any further queries please let me know.

I can't confirm you that it depends upon the stock, need to contact Lenovo sales for confirmation.
