Re: X230t latch/sidepad one loose, one tight, reasons?

Hello all,


I have exactly the same problem with an X230t that I purchased two months ago here in Germany through an authorized distributor.


The rubber stop on the left side of the keyboard was always loose. I was very careful with the machine and purchased an expensive case to protect it. That did not stop the rubber stop from breaking off at one point. It also took a bit of plastic from the keyboard bezel with it.


I opened a case with IBM support (who handles the warranty in Germany). They consider the damage out of warranty.


Obviously I am extremely angry with the quality of this new machine. I will not let the matter rest.


Can anyone help me with the two following points:

1. What part numbers are involved? How can I find them?

2. How can I escalate the question? Lenovo needs to understand that this is a design fault, and not due to abusive use of the machine.
