Late 2009 13" MBP Replacement Screws - In Need of Google-fu.

Posted 27 June 2011 - 02:44 PM

I knocked over the cup I was keeping the screws to my MBP in while swapping out the RAM and can't find them.
Anybody know where I can replace them? It goes everywhere with me and I don't want dust and crumbs in my laptop :(

I assume MBP is 'mac book pro', right?

Have you gone here?

Yes and Yes :|
My model doesn't have one of their ridiculously priced ($85) replacement screw sets. I'm pinging offers to eBay sellers with broken ones.
Thanks for helping though :)

I'd suggest getting a magnet, unless these screws are also aluminum (which they're probably not). You should be able to find an extendable magnet wand at a tool shop, just run that over the area like a metal detector, and you might find what you lost.

Or if you happen to have one of them, you could also visit your local hardware store and ask for some helping finding screws that are similar if not identical.

I have a screw box for laptop screws. If you can't find them maybe I have something you could use. Macs have all sorts of weird shapes & lengths.

Well, I have a black tie warranty with best buy that I paid $300 for. I'd hate to have my warranty voided for losing the screws and having different ones in there.
I'll try and take some measurements.
Thanks guys.
