Here is a link to the service manual.


I think what you are looking for is on Page 100.

It's not where I would have expected it to be either.

If you go to the Lenovo Support Site, Manuals, and enter your model (2847), you can find the Hardware Maintenance manual for the SL510. On page 74 it shows you that the cover for the wirless card is on the bottom at the front.  Undo the screw, lift the cover and it should be there with antenna wires attached. .... Thinkpads_Use
