Plastic snaps for bottom case are cracked

Having replaced my RAM a few months ago, I noticed the bottom case was flexing noticeably this week.

Investigating, I noted that the one of the black snaps that match onto the snap features on the bottom case had cracked, while the other is about to finish cracking.

Does anybody have a source for these? Or will I be bringing this to Apple and begging for mercy.

If it's under warranty

take it to Apple. If not, think about an extended warranty if it qualifies... this might be come an extended warranty repair or a recall if it's a design flaw, depending upon how many others have this issue.

If this answer is acceptable please return and mark it

Good Luck,
