    My MBP is still under warranty, and the power brick has been getting so hot that it stops working for awhile and the parts under the clips have literally warped the plastic. If I take it to a genius bar, will they replace it for free?

    If it's defective, yes. If it's due to wear and tear, unlikely.

    It's definitely not due to wear & tear, but how would they be able to tell? I mean they could look at the warped plastic, but I just hope they don't think I did that myself.

    I have had two replaced for my machines.

    I'm sure they will replace it, but there is only one way to find out.

    Do I have to bring anything other than the brick itself, like the extension part? Also should I bring my MBP serial # so they can see that it's under warranty? Thanks

    It's more convenient to call AppleCare and let them set the appointment. They'll verify you're covered, so you should only have to take the brick.
