X200s cover edge loose

#1 Post by amanda121287 » Fri Apr 13, 2018 8:40 am

Just got a replacement X200s and the top edge of the lid is loose [the front of the lid as you face it to open]. It doesn't appear to be a crack because it is straight and even across the whole lid. There doesn't seem to be anyway to tighten it; is it supposed to be removable?

No, that's broken.
It's a poor construction, which is rather difficult to fix.
It's easier to replace the lid.

Yeah I have seen quite a few X200's and X201's with a similar fault, must be a design fault
