Installing GOBI 2000 into X201... How To's?

I've looked at the hardware maintenance manual but it only really gives instructions on how to remove the wireless WAN card. Does anyone know if there are specific installation instructions for putting the GOBI into the X201?

 

Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Hi endlessct9a!

 

Do you have a specific question about the install? It's just the reverse of removal. Unfortunately there's no video of the GOBI 2000 install in an X201. Watch the T410s movie instead:

Hope this helps!

Wondering if it would be just easier to have an authorized Lenovo service center install the card for me instead...

Hi endlessct9a!

 

In the spectrum of DIY hardware installs, this is one of the easier ones. All that has to be removed and replaced is the battery, keyboard, and palm rest. The instructions and videos show you how:

If you are at all unsure however, a service center can help!

Make sure it's a Lenovo part (with a Lenovo sticker and FRU). The BIOS will burp at any other type of WAN card!
