MacBook 5,1 A1278 Clutch Cover Fractures.
Hello, I was wondering if anyone here knew of any existing protocol at Apple that might help aid me in replacing a clutch cover with multiple fractures. I understand Apple has implemented similar policies for topcase cracking on their polycarbonate MacBook models. The clutch cover is similar to the non-retina MacBook Pro models.
After doing some googling I noticed quite a bit of complaints by people who experienced this issue both early on and later in the life of their MacBook 5,1 models. As was the case with my MacBook, these fractures had not developed due to a drop of any kind.
I am willing to do the work (as ifixit has a very handy guide here that would easily help with replacement) but I figured I would ask some more knowledgeable people here first. Also, any recommendations in regards to purchasing the part on Ebay would be appreciated. The part itself seems to be inexpensive, ranging from $18 to $25 USD.
Thanks so much for your help.
