T430 Adjust SSD/HDD-Connectors

#1 Post by MartinC » Mon Feb 10, 2020 7:33 am

Hi,
last days i changed the SSD. When I inserted the new SSD it was very difficult because
the inside-connectors were crooked.Do I have
the possibility to adjust the connector from the inside of the T430?
(Maybe when I remove the keyboard?)
I look forward to proposed solutions

Did you forget the caddy and/or the sliding rubbers, or put it in updide-down?

No, its maybe from the beginning a bit crooked.
I insereted the SSD in the correct way
So the only way is - so I think - is to adjust the inside connectors!
Hoping for an idea!

Removing the keyboard should give some access to the drive-bay.

Thanks for Your answer.
Ok, I'll try it. Hopefully the keyboard-bezel doesn't have to be removed??!!
