Repair diagrams

2008-08-13, 13:17 PM

On my T61, my DVD drive needs to be replaced.  Lenovo has sent the replacement drive but the packaging did not include any diagrams/instructions for removal/replacement.

 

I'm *certain* I've seen some diagrams (step-by-step ones) showing how to replace various laptop components -- but now that I need them, I cannot find them.

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Solved! See the solution

drill down to Notebooks -->  ThinkPad -->  T61 -->  Videos

 

Click on FRU Removals/Replacements  -->  Optical Drive 

 

You can watch the video of how to replace the DVD drive.

Lots of things to say:

 

Thank you Kr00zn for such a quick and appropriately detailed reply.

Thank you Kr00zn for the link to the videos site.  I've bookmarked it *and* committed it to memory since it's going to be very useful.

 

Thank you Lenovo/IBM for such a well-thought out modular design.

 

(Considering the quality of responses I get to questions on this site, I'm tempted -- but I won't -- to ask a simple question:  what else should I know about my T61/XP?)
