small black circles under the shell of the MacBook

Good evening, I am bothered by a little detail on my macbook 2009, I've lost 2 of 4 small black circles under the shell of the macbook that prevent it from slipping (sorry I do not know the right word I'm French). I was ready to try to repair it myself but it is impossible to find spare parts! Do you plan to put them on sale (with tutorial) ? Thank you in advance and thank you for what you do from lots of French ! (Sorry my English is bad)

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Unfortunately when I click on your link I see :

"Unfortunately, access to this particular item has been blocked due to legal restrictions in some countries. We are blocking your viewing in an effort to prevent restricted items from being displayed. Regrettably, in some cases, we may prevent users from accessing items that are not within the scope of said restrictions because of limitations of existing technology.

Because I'm in France but thank you for trying ;)

Directions to install the replacement feet are perfect but if I can't find the replacement feet ... it's useless :/ I'll look on ebay France !

Thanks again for your help !!!


I am so sorry for the link not working, those legal restrictions...... Anyway I found some alternative links that you can use:

Tell me if they do not work.

If your near an Apple Store you can get them there as well. Here in the states Apple does it for free. Giving them a smile and please! At the Genius Bar (don't forget to bring your laptop with you).

We've got an Apple Store in my city but it's a very very small one, I don't know if they can fix that themself or if they need to send my macbook to a bigger Store (what could be expensive) ! I'll go this afternoon to ask them (it's 2 pm in France :)) with a big smile and a skirt xD. I'll tell you if it's work ! (I don't understand your last sentence sorry)

Thank your for your help !!!


Kim - A real Apple - Apple Store? Or, just a electronics store that sells Apple gear? If its' a real Apple Store I'm sure they have them at the Genius Bar (were people take the equipment to be serviced or ask questions). I think you got what I was saying ;-} - 'big smile and a skirt' Sometimes its' how you ask that gets you the cheese! Good Luck!!
