So i noticed that one rubber foot has fallen off of my 15" Late 2011 MacBook Pro.

currently it looks like this:

what would be the best way to repair this? i was thinking superglue but i don't want it to spill through the hole in the center and get inside of my laptop...

In the middle of several books.
did you even read my post? i still have it, it's right in the picture. the glue has just worn off.
I read your post. If you look on iFixit, they showed the best way to replace it. Since you have the part, it makes sense to look at the guide and see if you want to follow it. You could try a thin piece of double sided tape. as is shown in the guide.

There was no need to be rude. I will leave you to it. I attempted to offer help and you insult.

Most I have replaced had a double sided adhesive tape. Various rubbers and adhesives won't adhere to each other. For around $2.50 you can buy a set of 4 feet, replace them as they fall off.

I agree with the double-sided tape suggestion. No liquids near holes, wide availability, easily reversed. Or simply buy some replacement feet.
