Since there are no clear tutorials or guides on how to carry out a keyboard replacement on this particular model, I decided to document my own method in a video to help others. I hope it saves you a lot of time and money!
I am informed that the x250 and x260 models are practically identical and that this tutorial also works for these. This is why I have included it in the video title, but please take care and use common sense if you come across any differences :)
