Replacing Dell Inspiron 5567 non-backlit keyboard with backlitted on

Hey!

I ordered Dell Inspiron 5567 laptop from my local retailer and it did not have backlit keyboard. I have seen the same model with backlit keyboard in Dell's official page. So I was wondering that if I order new backlit keyboard from ebay is it possible to replace it. The main question is does every model of inspiron 5567 has a backlit keyboard connector. If it is possible, is there a manual how to do it?

Thanks in advance!

The connector will be there.  That said, this model is one of the growing number where replacing just the keyboard is far from a trivial exercise -- the keyboard, touchpad and palmrest are essentially a single, partially glued together assembly designed to be replaced as a single unit.

The service manual details the replacement process for the palmrest assembly -- but not just the keyboard, which isn't designed to be replaced separately.

***... I almost bought that model. So when buying that 5567, it should be the backlit version else suffer from disassembling almost the entire thing.
