    Does anyone know how to replace the power button on the macbook pro? Is it a very hard thing to do?

    I received a macbook pro and the power button is loose. It does not sit flush with the rest of the unit, and if you touch it it sinks in and wobbles from side-to-side.

    The power button itself works, for now, but I am worried that something may fall out of place sometime down the road and I won't be able to turn my computer on.

    Yeah, I definitely intend to take it in, but I just wanted to know if it is a very complicated process. If they have to disassemble everything, then I would rather just skip the whole process and put up with a messed up button.

    If it is an easy swap, then I will have them do it.
