Optical drive door sticks going down.

History

Hi, can case parts for the G5 towers be replaced?? My optical drive door sticks/jams going down because the "cheese grater" part of my tower case is dented. Wondering if this part can be swapped with another. My first thought is NO, but...

Thanks!

Try this: Remove the optical drive, here's how.

Then using "push piece" like the small end of a ball peen hammer, place on the dent and tap it back out.

Yes, Apple Service providers can get the case's - Probably around the $200 range though.. you can want to take some components out and try to "bang out the dent"
