    Long story short, I've got dust and maybe even a bubble inside the glass of my Late 08 MBP. Is it possible for techs to just remove the glass to clean/check the screen without damaging anything or will I end up needing to get the display replaced? :(

    You can remove the glass, but Apple techs consider the lid one whole piece from what I remember due to the risk of breaking it/not re-seating it properly.

    Oh crud. So if I complain about the dirt inside, they'll end up replacing the whole lid? That sucks.

    Also, does a broken bluetooth module warrant an entire lid replacement too?
