    AppleCare covers manufacturing defects, it is not an insurance plan.

    but that will not fix the overlap issue. you don't know how important that is to me, my old one had that, it was one of the main reasons i got a new one

    Nope. You are better off buying the part and do it yourself otherwise it's going to be some hefty money on the computer....
