      Palm rest or palm rest with fingerprint reader removal and installation - ThinkPad X300

      Removing the palm rest

      For access, remove these FRUs in order:

      1. Remove battery.
      2. Remove keyboard.

      Note: In models with the fingerprint reader, the sensor is attached to the palm rest FRU. If the fingerprint reader has any defects, you can replace it by the procedures given in this section, which are the same for a palm rest with or without a fingerprint reader.
