This is a follow-on to this topic
, but since I'm dealing with a T410, I thought it better to start my own topic.
I'm thinking of adding a camera (WebCam) FRU 0Y9402 $55 from this eBay seller
to my T410. I've removed the bezel and found that the cable is indeed there as shown in this pic
and on page 141 of the HMM.
My 1st question is does anyone know if the silver M2 × 3.5 mm, flat-head, nylon-coated (1) mounting screw is included with the webcam FRU? (I've also sent this question to the eBay seller).
Second, I don't think the camera will come with the clear plate (dust cover) as discussed in other topics. But in looking at the list of parts included in the Miscellaneous service parts FRU 60Y5461
, I don't see anything that sounds like the camera clear plate. Is there any reason that I couldn't just drill a hole in the existing solid black cover plate to match the hole in the bezel as shown in this pic
? I know that would expose the camera lens to dust & dirt, but I'm really careful with the TP so I don't think it should be a major problem. Or does anyone know of a better source to get the right clear plate?
Thanks for any help!
