How do I get to this clip?

#1 Post by Apexaddicted » Mon Dec 18, 2017 10:55 pm

Hi everyone. First post here, but long time Thinkpad lover.

I was being stupid the other day and got curious about what this metal clip was on the bottom side of my T520. I pushed it in ever so slightly and before I knew it, I felt it come loose! :oops: I can't tell 100% that it's not touching any conductive parts of the board, but I don't want to chance it...

I've been trying to get at it by either removing the bottom half of the plastic casing or fishing it out through the hole I originally noticed it from. Both tasks have been unsuccessful so far.

Does anyone have any tips on how to reach this metal clip? Will I have to take the whole motherboard out....?

Thanks,
Rob
