Title:

plastic next to broken hinge is also broken

Text:

I had a broken hinge 18 mos ago and it's happened again.  This time the plastic piece that looks like the back of a folder is cracked down the middle.  Can I buy this part?  What would I call it?  I've been able to make two other repairs to my MacBook using ifixit instructions (I know I bought a lemon) and I want to try again.
