    Hi there,

    Lately I have opened the back of my MBP for some installation, during the process I managed to lose one of the (short) screws...

    So currently my MBP has a missing screw (right-mid just under the trackpad), will this be a big problem?

    Would you advice me to purchase a new screw or just leave it?

    -If i were to buy a new screw, can somebody advice me a good and reliability seller please?

    Sorry about the load of questions.

    I would say if you can get a replacement then get one. It won't really hurt anything if you leave it out but to be safe to get one.

    Sorry I don't have any recommendations other then take a look over at They may sell them or have links to get one.

    Go to n Apple store and ask for a screw. I had one come out and they simply put a new one in on the spot.

    It will be fine without it. Your preference on whether it will haunt you like an Edgar Allen Poe beating heart that you are missing that screw.

    Don't stress out about it. Just pick one up at an Apple store the next time you have a chance.
