This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your ThinkPad 10 (20C1), use our service manual.

  1. You should follow this video:
    • You should follow this video:

      • A plastic Opening Tool is maybe helpful

    • I have done it in a different way:

      • You need a bag, that is not providing too much protection, a wet street and a bicycle with working breaks.

      • I don't recommend this strategy, because you will most likely also teardown some of your body. (I'm okay, but I won't do it again)

    • 8 MP Rear Facing Camera. P/N: 04X1392

    • Wifi Module. It's compared to the WWAN Module pretty tiny

    • WWAN UMTS Module. Gets you connected nearly everywhere. P/N: 04X6014

    • SIM Card

    • The buttons for power and rotation lock. P/N: 00HW309

    • 3.5 mm Headphone jack, or why this device is better than an iPhone 7.

    • SIM Card. Contacts are facing backwards

    • MicroSD Card. Sadly it is impossible to boot from it

    • The modelnumber, here: 20C10024MB

    • There would be the serial number

    • The volume control

    • The fingerprint reader

    • The aluminium back cover has absorbed very much energy during the impact. It's really difficult to bend it back. To my luck, nothing else was damaged

    • Even without the backcover, the tablet is working fine
