Lenovo thinkpad X1 carbon touchbar

2021-06-10, 17:19 PM

I brought a 2014 Lenovo thinkpad carbon X1 for cheap and found that the touchbar had turned a yellow sort of colour, so I’ve taken the keyboard off and wiped the stuff off, not realising that it’s acctuall black stuff that’s on there. It’s now white and donesnt look good. Does anyone know the substance that’s on it so I can replace it with.

Hello Robski78!


Welcome to community forums


We can only recommend the official parts/FRU listed for the machine and you can check it on your end through this link: https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/partslookup#/

Provide the MTM or the serial number then filter the commodity type.

However, you can wait for fellow users' suggestions or recommendations.

Welcome to the community forum.


This discoloration is a fairly common issue. A related thread: Thinkpad X1C 2nd Gen Touch Bar LCD is dirty/yellowish 


You may be able to find a replacement part relatively inexpensively on sites like eBay, e.g. Thinkpad X1 carbon Gen 2 DFR Bracket Sub Card 04X6437 00HN399 00HN39 NEW 5712505073582. Google on "04X6437" for other sources.
