Well, I broke my x250's power button connector while trying to swap in a new display. Modern laptop cables are too sensitive! (actually I'm just not good at all with hardware)

@stsp appart from that, was the swap easy? Which screen did you buy?

I'm considering upgrading my tft screen to the ups one.

@Ninjatrappeur It's an ips but I haven't seen it in action yet...

@stsp I just commended mine.

I also tried to disassemble the screen, the clips were a bit tight but I managed to remove them without damaging the case using a guitar pick.

I am a bit confused about your problem though: why did you disassemble the bottom part of the computer, I just had to remove the screen cover to disassemble the screen. Am I missing something?

@stsp But they are too sensitive, that's right. They are just not made to be repaired, most of the time. This is a part of planned obsolescence.
