X201 replacement latch on X201 tablet?

2016-08-01, 14:06 PM

Is it difficult to replace the screen latch on an X201 tablet?  I've worked on T series laptops replacing lcds and drives and the like. 

 

Thanks for any info!

Welcome to the forum!

 

Well, it's not that difficult but you need to disassemble a lot of parts. This is fairly easy to do if you closely follow the instructions of Lenovo's Hardware Maintenance Manual, which you can download from here: click me!

 

Check chapter 8 -2040

As with your other reply, thank you.  I've worked on the earlier Thinkpads like the T-41 which also required a lot of disassembly, to replace a screen, for example, so it shouldn't be too bad.
