Got a new screen lost the plastic hooks that adhere to the inside glass plate. not inclued in the new screen package. help!
I've been researching the issue and thoroughly searching for a solution. As of yet, I have not managed to find anything particularly helpful. It appears that the hooks not coming with the replacement Front Panel packages is rather common, and they do not appear to be sold on their own.
The iFixit guide, located here, states that "If the replacement front panel does not have these installed already, carefully remove and transfer them from the old panel to the replacement." Which may suggest that some replacement panels will come with the hooks.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help. But I'll continue to search for an alternative source for the hooks.
Otherwise, we'll just have to come up with an alternative solution.
I have wasted sooooo much time trying to locate these things! I ended up fashioning some out of a thin, clear plastic case that micro sd cards come in. It worked well enough, though the plastic was a little too thick for my liking. The factory ones are razor thin. If anyone locates these for sale, I will buy a giant bag of them! Seriously!
