    can anyone point me to a store that sells them, or a repair service that repairs the bezels without changing the entire screen assembly. i tried to change the cracked lcd and i warped the bezel.

    Unfortunately, the bezel and LCD assembly are only available as one piece through all Apple channels (resellers, apple service providers)

    Ebay may be your best bet for individual pieces.

    Garegin: Sorry for attempting to hijack your topic, but could you tell me where you found instructions for replacing the display on a MacBook Air? Thanks!

    Dude, its metal. Find a local jeweler or metalsmith and have them take care of it.

    options for DIY bezel replacement?

    I'm in a similar situation. I dropped my MBA and dented the aluminum display bezel. The LCD is fine. The damage is pretty much just cosmetic. I wouldn't mind replacing the bezel myself--but I can't find one for sale. Any ideas?

    I saw somewhere that the bezel is put on with 3m tape. If so that would make it very hard to replace without damaging it.

    MAC airbook lcd bezel




    HEy guy. tryed to do the same repair myself on the bosses laptop. got the bezel off but severly warped... cracked the lcd putting on the old bezel.. my manager ordered a new bezel on ebay in great shape but then decided to bye the whole LCD assembly so as to avoid buying a new LCD and rrisk cracking that one. Now stuck with a Bezel still in its package from Ebay for 100 dollars and change. I dont have an ebay account but if you live near my area perhaps we can arrange a sale.. I will let it go for 75 dollars..
    I live in NY LongIsland. you can email me at tedgalas@yahoo.com. IF not looks like theres a few others that need it..
    Let me know.

    Ted
