No one sees that it is an replacement key. Used just the key-top itself without replacing the construction below it, as only the key-top was damaged, fittet perfect onto the old underlying construction. Hope you will be around as long as the laptop lasts!

ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 2 Keyboard Key Replacement
2015 is the start of 3RD Gen of Lenovo X1, so there are 3 generations of the x1 Carbon models, and
three versions of keyboards, this item is the Gen 2 black backlit Keys ONLY.
Make sure your Gen 2 has the backspace and delete key like the picture above.
During the production of the 2nd gen X1 Carbon, two different keyboard vendors were used so therefore two different
versions of the hinge clip under the key cap, please compare the version you have and fill this info in STEP 2 above.
Your keyboard keys should look the same as below.
I'm glad these guys exist! While others offer full keyboard replacements, I was reluctant to disassemble my laptop over a couple of defective keys. With replacementlaptopkeys.com I definitely found a solution. The entire process of replacing keys took less than a minute. Totally seamless installation and my laptop got its brand new look back. Thank you!
Looks exactly the same as original one, color is even the same.
Took about 1.5 weeks for the replacement backspace key to arrive. Found instructions on youtube, and installed within 5 minutes. The key is a different shade of black from the rest, but that is likely due to being brand new. Overall a great experience, would buy again
Ordered the #6 key as it was loose on my X1 2nd gen. Instructions were clear, part was perfect and now my keyboard and #6 key is as good as new.
