Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook
I recently got a (very good) procedure for replacing the right side hinge on a T41. Now the left side is also broken. I have the description for removing the LCD bezel in the other answer, so I don't need that.
Is the left side hinge replacement similar? Will I have to remove any of the plastic or case parts other than the LCD bezel to replace both hinges? If so, what is that procedure?
Should I pay the additional money for a new set of hinges or should a used set be adequate.
The reason I ask is that I have had 570s for years and the hinge setup on them is terrible. They wear out and can stop working altogether suddenly. Paying extra for new replacement hinges for that model would always be preferable to me. But the hinge setup for T41s looks very different. Is this something I should worry about?
