Replacement keyboard for X1 Yoga 2nd gen?

Hello. Does anyone know which model keyboard I need to order?  I would like to replace the French/English Canadian keyboard with a standard US one. Unit is a second generation X1 Yoga.

You won't like my answer.  If you completely disassemble the entire machine, the last piece you get to is the keyboard.  You need to remove the lid and screen, but you don't have to take that apart.  Everything else comes off

 

I think there are 4 U.S. English keyboards:  01LV008, 01LV048, 01LV088, 01LV128  (different manufacturers)

 

You can check in the parts list:

Hey.  Thanks for the reply.  Do you know if any or all of the replacement keyboard models are compatible?  I'm not concerned about the difficulty dismantling and re-assembly.  But I would like to be sure I order the right keyboard.  I messaged Lenovo on Facebook.  The fellow who replied simply said that a different keyboard may not function properly, or may not fit the hardware.  ...but he didn't seem to be sure of anything.

All of the FRUs listed for that model will fit the same as each other and work the same.  They are different manufacturers of the same part.

Remember that not only do you need a new keyboard but a new bezel piece too.  The shape of the keys are different between the US English and the Canadian bilingual layout.
