    Lenovo Carbon X1 Replacement Key

    Posted by Donna N. on 24th May 2019

    Even my IT department was not willing to tackle replacing this laptop key. Luckily, I didn't need to replace the plastic connectors underneath, only the key itself, from which one of the clips was broken off. All I had to do was snap the replacement key on from the bottom up. It took less than a second and fit perfectly. So glad this service exists. I can't speak to how it might have worked if I had to replace the connectors underneath (which they included with the key), but I am absolutely pleased with the replacement key and it worked like a charm.

    Excellent condition - procedure can be difficult, requires care

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Mar 2019

    Purchased a used X1 carbon gen 1 a few months with a damaged butterfly under the 1 key. Purchased this replacement (type IC49) and all parts were included in excellent condition (key, butterfly, bubble thingy).

    However, the repair process is a bit tricky. Be very careful to remove the key components from the keyboard properly, to avoid damaging something that isn't already. For the one key this involves gently prying from the TOP side of the key, since the latching (oneway?) connections are at the bottom. Additionally, with the new butterfly installed, I noticed that it very easily came dismounted from the different leverages that the key can apply. Be very careful that the metal retaining clips holding the butterfly in place are not damaged in this process, or if they are deformed, VERY gently use a fine metal tool to push them back into place; avoid destroying them through excessive deformation or fatigue. There are three pairs of metal clips to pay attention, the one way clips on the bottom side of the butterfly, the snap ins on the top side, and some additional retaining features contacting the very top edge of the butterfly which I had to fiddle with a bit to get the right snug fit.

    Overall, good purchase, just be sure you have some time and a careful hand to lend to this process.
