View Full Version : Where to get mid-2010 15" unibody MBP base plate Screws?

A couple of months back I got the base plate on my mid-2010 15" unibody MBP replaced out of warranty at the Apple Store cos all the feet had fallen off. One of the screws has been loose for a couple of weeks and I finally got round to tightening it today only to find that one of the other screws has fallen out completely.

So, I'm looking for a place to buy a single screw to replace the one that I've lost. Had a look at iFixit, but they want $60 for a complete screw set. Also had a quick look on eBay but couldn't see anything obvious.

Anyone got any ideas?

I also need a couple so if you find some let me know. I think I've had two fall out over a period of time.
