How to deal with metal piece making bottom case crack with movement?
Hi guys, this is a complicated question and I was hoping you all might have some insight as to what to do about it. I have a new M1 MacBook Air and I’m am dealing with a popping/creaking sound coming from the bottom of the case, when I type and when I put pressure on it. I opened it up and verified that all the clips and everything are intact and they all look good. But I have enclosed a picture of a bent up metal piece which is exactly where the sound is reproducible with bottom case pressure. It looks like it’s just a little too bent and it’s sitting a tiny bit higher than the other bottom case structural supports. When I press there, it bends in, and the case makes a cracking/popping sound.
Any pressure on that piece doesn’t really fix anything, the moment I let up pressure it pops back to its normal position.
Is there any way to deal with this? Should I expect it to flatten out over time as I continue to use the machine? Thank you for any insight you might have!
Is this a good question?
