Replacing Thinkpad 390 Bottom Case

#1 Post by longhornwhistler » Sun Nov 11, 2018 7:57 pm

Do any of you know where I can find a new bottom case for my Thinkpad 390? I have a hinge that has pretty much destroyed the bottom case and is close to damaging the charging port. See here:

I couldn't find a 390's bottom housing case on eBay, but I did find one (FRU: 05K5482) on PCHub. It appears that it is going for $46.12 USD, which probably isn't too bad if the shipping is reasonable.

I had the same problem with my 390X. Try impactcomputers.com. They had every part I could ever want for my 390X, and I think they have parts for the 390 too.
