Rubber foot pad replacements

Hi all,

Where would be a good, reliable source for the rubber foot pads (feet) to replace the ones that fell off my MacBook Pro. I find a few online, but here that many don't fit or are of very poor quality.

Any and all recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.

Go to eBay and search for "A1425 & feet". These are ones with a smaller diameter center hole and look like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/4pcs-New-Macbook...

When replacing make sure you get the little centering pin in. This can be a little tricky to repair as placement is blind. I stick the foot on the tip of my pocket knife and get that pin in first. Once placed I use a drop of superglue to secure it.

The newer machines have a smaller diameter center raised portion than the older ones.

Good Point!

I'm sure Florian will make sure he tells them his exact model they will ship the correct part. This is still one of the few parts Apple will sell directly to a consumer!

Went to the Apple store today and they told me they don't sell that part, that if it were still under warranty (which it isn't) they would replace the entire bottom panel! The DIY kit is suitable for MacBook Pros, but not MacBook Pro Retinas. Not sure what the difference is there, but Apple has basically left me with no options and no way of replacing the missing foot.
