    Guys, I noticed that my MacBook Air 13 inch late 2011's case bottom clicks when I slide my hand under it and lift it. It kinda sounds like a mouse click or the case is flexing. Has anyone else ever heard of this. It is still under Apple Care until until January 13th of this month. I have seen a thread about a spring that flex inside the case, but I'm not sure if this is the same thing. This Mac is in perfect shape and has always been used in a Mac Air Jacket. This is not a giant big deal but it is a bit annoying. Any impute would be great. Thanks

    its a little metal latch that connects the bottom case to the battery, why i'm not sure. Some people have had luck by replacing the bottom case - though apple care does not cover that but if you are nice in the store they'll do it for fee. alternatively you can just remove the metal piece...

    good luck.

    Thanks, does it just come lose, or is it made that way?
