Replacement hinges for T420

#1 Post by maxemillian » Wed Sep 13, 2017 3:28 am

Hi All,

Anyone know of somewhere online from which I can buy genuine new hinges for the T420?

I've had a look on eBay but most appear to be OEM manufactured.

Many thanks,
Max.

OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer.
What's wrong with that?
It's exactly what you're looking for!

For some reason I never questioned the acronym and assumed it ref. to aftermarket parts!

Am I able use any of the three FRU numbers listed under 'hinges' in the maintenance manual? Or do I need to buy all three?

Thanks,
Max

If the last post in a thread is yours, you can click on the "edit" button near the right bottom to add/change text.
No need to make 3 posts...

And you only need one number for a set of hinges.
There are apparently 3 manufacturers, but we don't know who is who.

Ok, sorry for the three posts, and thanks for your help!

I guess if we don't know who is who, then there also isn't a concensus regarding any difference in quality between the three manufacturers?

Thanks again
