Faceplate for optical drive-sourcing replacement

I have very little IT knowledge so am probably asking a stupid question!

Basically I'm a school teacher and a student accidentally broke the plastic face plate off of my DVD drive. I now can't find the original bit of plastic anywhere so would like to source a plastic face plate for the DVD drive am hoping it'll slot back on as everything else is working fine.

However when I've googled I can only find entire new optical drives for this model of laptop. If I bought one of these could I take off the faceplate and transfer it easily?

Are there any other plastic bits from other models that'd fit my drive? The model is he pro book 455 g2

Cheers

Maybe someone can correct me if i'm wrong, but aren't laptop optical drive faceplates/bezels universal, that is to say aside from form factor there's no difference.

You are looking for what is called a "Bezel".

Although not 100% universal, a large amount of HP laptops can use the same bezel.

Here is a link on Ebay for one, but I'm not 100% sure if its a match.

Thanks very much :-) I'm going to buy and see how it goes- are they reasonably easy to fit :)

There are 2 plastic clips that should easily clip into the front of the tray.
