#1 Post by bretahrnek » Sun Jul 08, 2012 10:09 am

without looking first, in the past, under IBM and i suppose now lenovo, those sorts mof things came in a group of small parts.. you'll need to go through the hardware maintenance manual for your particular thinkpad, look at the parts breakdown (exploded view) and follow the numbers to the parts list..

you might end up with a bunch of other un-needed parts but the overall cost is usually fairly small..

also, you can check ebay for some of those small items..
since lenovo bought the PC division parts like that have turned up there..

welcome to the forum.. :)

x121e HMM

it's not there.

I have plenty of thinkpads and ussually had no problem to find any parts with HMM.
however in x121e HMM is no FRU for lcd screw caps.

edit.
It's also there:

looks like there is no misc. parts kit for this..

in the IBM days anmd for a few years thereafter when faced with this sort of thing i would call IBM Boulder Parts operation..
i forget the number but they could look up most any part..
not sure if lenovo does the same or if Boulder Parts still does this service for lenovo thinkpads..
