    I purchased a 15" MBP secondhand recently, and after getting it home I noticed the screen hinges had some wobble when I opened it up. I did a little research and couldn't find much info. Took it to the Apple Store, where they were more than happy to try and charge me $601.24 to replace the entire top of the laptop. I then took it to another tech and they couldn't source any replacement parts. Does anyone know where I can get these replacement hinges from? I like this MBP, but I'm not spending that kind of money to fix such an easy, cheap little hardware piece. Any links would be appreciated.

    And yes, I already tried having the screws tightened :)

    Without knowing the year it’s hard to give you an exact answer but check out https://www.ifixit.com/Store they usually have a lot of parts for Apple products.

    You cannot just change the hinges. The displays are fused together and do not come apart. The entire display assembly gets replaced. That's why the store quoted what they did.
