Introdução

This guide will teach users how to carefully disassemble the screen of the IBM Thinkpad T60. This will allow users to replace a broken LCD screen or upgrade their current version. Remember to always power down the computer before attempting any installation/removal of any hardware components. Be sure to remove the AC adapter and all cables from the computer. If the computer has been on, wait several minutes before beginning the procedure to ensure all parts have cooled down.

About "Note that there are screw covers on the sides (two on the left and one on the right).":

1. Are these screw covers glued?

2. After finish replacing any parts, do I need apply glue to attach these screw covers again(or they are self-glued)?

3. Is this method(screw covers cluing) very popularly used with IBM Thinkpads?

(I need to replace Thinkpad X40 LCD rear cover, but not confident to start)

  • Carefully pry the plastic border away from the screen using the plastic opening tool. Note that this step requires some force. There are plastic clips that help hold the border in place so do not worry about snapping sounds.

These plastic clips are very popularly used, must be very careful to use force.

when you hear the "snapping sounds", you probably already broke the clips.
