History

Hi,

How can I fix it ? Is there a way to "rebuild" the plastic or change the part that hold the plastic ?

Thanks for your feedback,

Hugo

Sugru Moldable Rubber (3 Pack)

Soft-touch Silicone Rubber that molds and sets permanently. — 50 available at 11.95 each.

I did not know about Sugru. I will give it a try. I dont know where I can buy it here in France.

hugo,

At this moment, there's no distributor in France.... You can buy on iFixit, or on Sugru

xgonin,

Hi, I have bought some sugru (black and white), mixed it to get grey that is close to the original color and put it in place. It is great. This is not brand new but I think this is OK. I am really happy to know that sugru exists ! Thanks a lot for the help ! Hugo

hugo,

xgonin,

Not that I know about... you could mix up some hot glue, bondo or epoxy and smear in there to fill the space.
