7 of my x240 Thinkpad keys (the Tab, left-Shift, y, t, Backspace, F5, Fn) are not responding (ie screen show nothing
after pressing keys): an full keypad costs about US$40 & quite a bit of work is needed to replace the keypad which
I'm not savvy to do: would  the above help & which specs (10, 30, 26, ...)  should I chose?    Can't reach the seller.

I guess it's not just a matter of peeling off the plastic cap of each faulty key & replace the cap: something beneath
each of the buttons are not working, so would the buttons on sale above help?  There are buttons of different
sizes that are faulty: above link didn't give me option to choose which keys.

I could use a USB keyboard but don't want to carry a bulky USB keyboard around, so fixing those keys is preferred.
