    I've lost the little plastic power supply plug cover for my G4. Does Apple sell these? I bet they sell them by the truck load.

    Thanks,

    I travel a lot. Critical things sometimes get damaged. Does Apple sell them?

    It's like losing a lenscap. Something bad might happen

    I never even thought about keeping it. Just seemed like a little piece of packaging to me.

    One previous thread, not the one I linked to, suggested that they sometimes have a pile of them at the Genius Bar in any given Apple store and that they are willing to share.

    I made one from a marker pen cap, but I'm not telling anyone in case they think its a bit sad (it was actually - it took ages to find one the right diameter, and I had to cut it down to the right length, trim the end square and the worst bit was that I was quite pleased with it. Oh dear......)

    Ill sell you one for $100.

    Actually i think you can call up apple parts department and you can buy them. Be aware though, they wanted to charge me $20 for one little rubber foot. $20!!!!! I told em to shove it.

    I would ask at my local Apple Service Centre. They will often give you small replacement parts for little or no fee at all.

    Like when I broke the F9 key on my iBook I just asked if the had one, and they rummaged around back in the workshop and came up with the closest they could find: A F9 key from a broken PowerBook keyboard. Fits fine on my iBook.

    Didn't have to pay for it either... :) just part of the service... :) and I didn't even buy the iBook there... :cool:

    I was blessed to find my little part when I dumped the briefcase on the floor. Thanks to all who contributed thoughtful and humorous advice. $100 is a bit steep even for an official Apple part, dontcha think? :)
