Hey, my Mac Pro from 2007, week 11 seems to be having the handle come apart and I cant manage to push it back in! :confused: Is there anything I can do to fix this like glue or something?
:rolleyes:

Thanks :D
How did that happen? Is that the top handle or the bottom handle?

That's strange, really. Never thought this could get loose in just 3 years. Perhaps there was something wrong in the first place? Some screw that got loose inside?

I dont even know if i can get into that part, it requires taking out just about everything! I'll have to try it when i get some free time and see if there is something to tighten. It would help if someone knew :) i can push it back to shape but it just goes back to sticking out if i let go

ta:D

if the machine is working fine best thing to do is leave it alone. no need in taking this apart and something else stop working...

Dude, inside the case there are a number of Torx screws holding the 'handle' to the body of the case. I can only imagine those screws have since come loose... Did you try tightening them using a mini Torx wrench? Unfortunately, you might have to dissemble parts of the machine to get at those screws.

Here's a link to someone's awesome G5 case mod,
it'll probably give you some idea as to how the MacPro case is assembled:
