    I don't have the bit which came off

    I don't mind what it costs (within reason of course...) I want to fix it properly

    This company is in the US, but has a huge list:
    http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/I...top,Parts.aspx

    Here is a company in the UK, not such a list:
    http://www.ccd.co.uk/xpress/Catalogu...pt=J02&man=IBM

    And another:
    http://www.laptopbits.co.uk/Database...inkpad_T60.htm

    Might be worth calling them.

    EDIT: http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=IBM...&start=10&sa=N was my search string

    Have you tried Ebay as you maybe able to get secondhand bits from people who broke their notebooks??
    This usually means a smashed screen or liquid spill.

    Re: Muppet here... broke the catch on his T60...

    Ebay will be the cheapest place to buy bits as I have repaired a few notebooks myself. Even some computer shops do the same!!

    For instance this listing has a T60 LCD cover for sale:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/IBM-T60-T60P-H...ayphotohosting

    You could always contact the seller as many of them get broken notebooks(insurance write-off's) which are sold for spare parts.

    Re: Muppet here... broke the catch on his T60...

    anyone selling the screens for them ? an email to anyone with a screen may have the rest of the parts you need for the catch?

    also worth looking at pics of other models to see if things look the same
