Plastic ventilation on side of case broken, fixable or replaceable?

I have an HP Envy TouchSmart 15 laptop, and recently the plastic (bottom) left the side of the computer started parting from the metal top part. Every time I open my computer the gap between the two surfaces will get larger. I was wondering whether it's possible to replace the bottom of the computer (I assume that know one would create such a thing) or whether I'm stuck with it. The picture shows a mild case of partage.

Thanks for your input.

Hi,

Here is a link to the service manual for your laptop.

http://www.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03943414.p...

On p.19 it shows an exploded view of all the components for your laptop. Your problem seems to be with the base enclosure.

On p.23 it gives the HP part number for the base, 720534-001.

If you search online, using just the number, (nothing else, not HP or Envy 15 etc.) you will get suppliers for the base.

Here is a link to just one supplier. It is only shown to give you an idea of the price. Search around you will probably find one closer to where you are and maybe cheaper.

The manual will help you to correctly dis-assemble and re-assemble your laptop when replacing the base enclosure.

I have this same problem, although, mine is slightly more broken. Would I use the same steps or different steps? Thanks! Here’s a link to images of it on DropBox: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8dby5u2cjaen1...

Hi @sirisaacfalcone ,

Here's a link to the service manual for your laptop, (taken from this webpage.

Scroll to p.25 (Item #19) to find the part numbers for the base enclosure.

The manual should help you to disassemble the laptop to get to it.
