Yes. Set up a genius appointment at your local apple store, and they can replace them for you. Do a search on the forums for "rubber feet" as 3rd parties might also sell them.

My local AS didn't charge for them, they replaced them for customers, but your millage may vary. Call them ahead and find out if they will do it and how much the MIGHT charge you (if they do that is).

Can confirm that this is the right way to do it. Helps better if you have ProCare...I was in and out of there in 10 minutes.

I always thought ProCare was waste of money especially when I didn't own a Mac. Yeah ProCare is worth every cent, but I feel bad when I cut the line.

Free if you have warranty, $15 if you don't.

VIP Status is expensive, might as well flaunt it.

No but it saves it rocking about until some new ones can be sourced
