    • Once you have removed the screws, the monitor will be free.

    • The best way to take the monitor out is to gently pull the top of it away from the case. As you can see it is connected at the bottom by the video connection.

    • To remove the screen completely you must disconnect this video connection. There is a very thin metal tab (see picture) that will pry up and allow the connection to disconnect.

Will a screen of a T460s or aT470s fit a T480s ?

I haven’t had a chance to check the T480 screen to see if it is the same connection.

Bill -

Do you need to apply some type of adhesive to put the front panel back on after replacing the screen?

Matt - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

No, you just need to put the screws back
