How do I replace the frame where hinges and screen meet?

Basically the frame where the hinges attached to the screen just broke completely, just from stress I guess. It managed to stretch the rubber and crack the plexi glass on top of the LCD.

What piece do I need to fix it? The LCD screen replacement is the closest, but I'm not sure what parts I really need. Here are the pictures of the break...,27XwOaT,27XwOaT#1

I took out the screws but the pieces literally separate if not for the rubber holding them together.

Is this a good question?

There's a replace Hinge or backcover? for that. Looks like you'll have to locate the parts elsewhere. Purchase the proper tools (every job goes easier when you use the correct tools).

Do you know what the actual name of the piece is though? It's not the full display since i have a perfectly good LCD, cam, airport etc. I'm just not sure what the frame is called or if there is a specific part number to research.


clutch cover
