Can you help with getting these spare parts?

#1 Post by PRAGUEGUY » Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:40 pm

I need too parts...dont know their names. Can anybody suggest where to get it? one are TWO red plastic things that go along the sides of the HDD to make it fit in tight.
the official service shop wants some 20 usd for it...looks outrageous. can you suggest a tweak?


The other part is a cover of the HDD "shuttle"...thanks a lot. It has one screw to attach it to the main body of the laptop, to safely close the hole where the HDD is located.

I dont know how it is called...

What laptop is this for? I think i have those red HDD rails/bumpers from my T430s or T431s that I am not using.
i would think the HDD shuttle is called a cover? They should all have FRUs that are easily accessible via eBay.

Edit: I just saw this was posted under the X220 and X230 forum... :roll:

According to the X230 FRU list:

04W1414 HDD cover
04W1716 HDD rubber 7.0mm

Feed these to google, ebay, and amazon, and you should be able to find some.
The ones from the X220 are compatible (same part numbers according to the HMM).
