Replacing the touchpad on an x220

#1 Post by bauxitemedium » Tue Jul 10, 2018 4:29 pm

I ordered the below replacement touchpad for my x220:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/173045440272

This item is only the touchpad cover and does not include the sensor and cable. To replace the cover it looks like I need to heat up the glue connecting the old touchpad to the sensor and then pry it off.

Has anyone else tried this with successful results? I am hesitant to try as the glue seems very adhesive and I don't want to end up breaking anything and having to replace more parts than I need to.

I've done it. It's pretty straightforward and with a little heat from a heat gun or even hair drier, it'll come off no probs.

I was able to remove the old touchpad using a hair dryer. Thanks for the help!
