[X1 Carbon 2nd Gen] Where can I buy adaptive keys replacement? 20A7 / 20A8

2018-11-27, 10:30 AM

As the title already mentioned, my wife's thinkpad x1 carbon 2nd gen adaptive row keys starts to look like the liquid part is evaporating. Where can I buy the replacement for the unit in question? Appreciate any answer. Thanks

The plastic strip over the keys turned yellow, don't know if you have the same problem, but I did not see anyone mentioning such a problem except you

I could order it starting at this address :

https://support.lenovo.com/fr/en/solutions/ht036683

but as it is a FRU, you need a VAT number to order it. Otherwise you have to bring your laptop to lenovo

The SKU is 04X6437 and they told me they had a few ones in stock. I am waiting for the order.

There are some instructions and even a video for replacing the part on the lenovo support pages

Welcome to the forum.

 

If you want to replace the part yourself, you can find it on sites like Amazon and eBay.

 

Searching on "04X6437" shows e.g.
