Where can I buy a replacement backlit French keyboard for T440s in the US?

I have the T440s with its original American (qwerty) backlit keyboad.

I want to replace it with a French (azerty) backlit keyboard.

The reference of the part is FRU 04X0112.

I haven't found where I can buy this in the US, online or elsewhere (I'm in Boston, MA).

Can someone help me?

Hi 8139david,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

As per the query we understood that you are facing the issue with backlit French keyboard on your ThinkPad T440s.

 

You can purchase it from Amazon or from Ebay, or else you can visit the nearby service center for further assistance on that.

Thanks for the suggestions.

So you can't buy it directly from a seller in the States?

I'm looking for the best price, and what you recommend are very expensive...

Hi 8139david,

 

Might I suggest you look for a store or EBAY seller from Montreal, Quebec. Most computers sold in this city contain French keyboards, or at the least, English/French bilingual keyboards. What with the current exchange rate, it might not be too expensive. There are a lot of small used computer stores herein this city who do a lot of internet selling.

Hi 8139david,

 

You can check with the nearby Authorized service center once, I don’t think they will keep the French keyboard in stock.
