    Recently had a friend take apart my Macbook Pro top case to replace the hard drive. The swap went fine, but one of the latches on the front right side broke. So now there is a very small gap right where the latch is - where the top of the case should sit firmly to the bottom case. Certain parts of the top case (near the trackpad) now make a squeak when I place my palms on them, and I've tried pushing down the piece of the top case where the gap is and the squeaks disappear...

    So I'm wondering if there is a special type of glue (epoxy possibly?) that I could use to apply in the gap so that I would be able to push the case down and it would hold/sit flush with the bottom base and eliminate the noise issue? Any suggestions?

    Glue? And never be able to open the computer again?

    Devcon Magic Bond Epoxy Putty is very good for metal to metal
