See p. 15 of the Manual here:

 

Manual

 

Apparently there is a backlit keyboard on "selected" models, but the parts list does not say which replacement top covers (keyboard is not sold separately) is backlit and which is not. 

 

This ebay seller says he is selling just a backlit keyboard but there are no instructions in the Manual for how to remove the keyboard from the top cover.

An experienced technician could likely figure it out. It does not appear the motherboards are different so all motherboards should have the header for the backlight if any of them do. This answer is based on my "best guess" from years of working on laptops and no guaranties are offered.
