If this is covered somewhere else in the forums, I'm sorry for duplicating. I did a search and didn't find anything that I needed, so here it is: I dropped my 17" Macbook Pro and dented the bottom case on the corner. There is a significant gap and I'm afraid that dust or anything else harmful will get into the inside and really damage my laptop. I purchased a new bottom case (I purchased it from a private seller) for $50. I had no idea installing it would involve so much trouble! The best quote I have received for installing it is $270. A lot of places online won't install it because I didn't purchase the new case from them. I have been searching for guides and manuals that will assist me in figuring out if I even have a remote chance of installing it myself, but there are a ton out there and none of them have specifically instructed me on how to remove the bottom and then re-assemble it. I absolutely cannot afford to spend any more than $100 on installation, so I'm thinking I'll have to do it myself. I don't have any experience so I need as much information as possible on how to do it. I know you're all going to tell me, "If you have no experience DON'T risk it, just spend the money to have it installed professionally. You'll end up saving yourself money doing it this way because if you try it yourself you'll probably need far more expensive repairs." But the truth is I absolutely, in no way whatsoever, can afford to have it installed. $100 is the highest I can go. Advice on how to install the new case?
