Case bulge after repair

    I ranted a little while ago about a reseller damaging my case when my MBP went in for a logic board and fan assembly replacement.

    I've just got it back, two case replacements later.

    When I picked it up, it looked fine. However, after about a day's use, the bottom case is bulging out ever so slightly along the front (just above the IR receiver). It's not major - only a millimetre or so. I can press the bulge back in and it looks fine, but then it springs back out again.

    I'm wondering if maybe I'm being too picky? Then again, somebody did point out that if you send your car in for repair and when it comes back the door doesn't close properly , you wouldn't accept it.

    Am I wrong in thinking that the computer should come back in as new condition if the repair is the result of Apple's manufacturing defect?

    Like to hear thoughts from others on this...

    Send it back. If you have to pop anything back in it's not acceptable.

    Finally I have arrived.....
    If I were you, I would send it back to Apple so that they will get the fix right this time. The warranty repair service should fix the problems and keep the rest intact without messing up. Fixing the problems and creating another problems during the warranty repair process is just a sloppy job. You have paid a good money on MBP and Apple should fix it perfectly.

    I agree with previous posts, a sloppy job is NOT acceptable!
    I always get annoyed when I hear about stuff like that, I mean Apple is supposed to have support rated above average, still things like this happens.
