I recently brought a used x220 on ebay. Been using it for about 2 weeks so far so good. The laptop does have some issues. I would like to know how do I replace the top lid of an x220? I've ready seen videos on how to replace the screen so I kinda got the hang of replacing the bezel. I just want to know how do I replace the top panel because top right side of the lid is a bit weak. Thanks.

Pretty much all of the steps are outlined in the HMM: https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/0a60739_04.pdf
Essentially, you'll need to remove the LCD, pull the hinge screws, carefully lift the antennae tapes, and then reinstall all the parts into the replacement lid. Section 2010 is a good starting point.

Getting the hinges and antenna wires in place can be difficult. If you are planning to get a used lid, I suggest getting one that comes with the antennas and hinges.
