Where can I buy these parts?

2012-10-26, 0:33 AM

Hey,

 

where can I find the parts in this picture?

 

http://gyazo.com/b6d790cc3c97dcf8b05c9ee53bb53ce1

 

It's a Thinkpad X220T

 

its the plastic pieces on the side of the keyboard that stop the screen from moving when its closed.

 

I've been looking everywhere and can find nothing.


Thank you for your help.

Hi

 

Thanks for the Post.

 

As per your concern, I would suggest you to please visit the Lenovo service centre.

There you can purchase these parts as well as the associated representative will assist you accordingly.

 

Regards,

Sameer

@mokeyking...

 

if you download your hardware maintenance manual:

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/guides-and-manuals/detail.page?DocID=UM006561

and look at the exploded view on page 110, you won't see those little "bumbers". that's problematic since they won't likely have a discrete FRU P/N you could order. they might be a subset of the miscellaneous rubber parts kit listed on page 132, though, but i have no concrete way of knowing what's in it.

 

using the P/N from the HMM (04W1783) here:

http://www-304.ibm.com/shop/americas/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/default/PromotionDisplay?promoName=parts_r&catalogId=-840&storeId=260785&langId=-1

shows the item as "available" with a price of US$29.50, if you want to pursue further.

 

hth a bit.

Man, those flimsy bumpers break off way too often, don't they? You're the 3rd user here to report problems with them.

Thank you for your reply. I have called them many times before and they were not helpful. I could not find the parts and the many representatives I talked to do not know the parts either.

Hi! Thank you so much for the link. Are you sure this rubber kit has the bumpers I am looking for?

And I thought IBM does not sell thinkpads anymore? They still provide parts?

O, I think I asked them about this before, and I looked at the "rubber kit" list on Lenovo's website and there were no such parts.
