I'm get across this list very unfrequently, but better late then never:
as you may have figured out by yourself, it's always very helpful to read t=
so-called "Hardware Maintenance Manual" for the R40 which is the same as fo=
the R40e.
There you get a clear view on parts and technical expressions (they don't u=
"screen frame" but LCD cover/front bezel and panel), which part is broken a=
if the parts are interchangeable (same FRU/part number in best case).
(I replaced the R40 front bezel years ago.)
