    Look on Ebay, you can find replacements for $20-30, I bought one several years ago, still working.
    Apple charges way to much for them so better take this route.

    If you hardly use it consider an SSD and an external DVD-burner.

    Thank for your fast respond,I tried to call Apple care they want $19 just to talk to you, the Apple store don't sell parts you can just let them fix it,
    that's bad service from the Apple side

    ----------

    you still use it some time I allready have 250GB SSD

    If you don't really want to open the MBP you could buy an external drive, not much more expensive, you can probably get one for around $30-40

    iFixit sells the replacement optical drive you need and they also have online walkthroughs how to do the swap.
