You know, I was asked this very question a while ago and endeavored to replace that part. With a small stack of junk cases, I did not manage to successfully replace any of them. They are just situated in the case with plastic reinforcement to not be removed! Replacement would involve re-melting small plastic pieces together, which isn't feasible.

Your best bet is to replace the lower case.

Sorry! At least you know it's not just you.

At least the remote sensor is functioning OK without the LED. I am going to leave it AS-IS until I damage my lower case. I appreciate your insight.

That's not exactly an answer. And not exactly too encouraging either
