A heavy application of LockTite should work - you're not holding elephants, just want to keep the parts together.

Thanks you for your answer but let me be more spefic not broken anything to put locktite just the screws doesnt "tighten up" anymore to screw threads.

Right - you need a sort of "sleeve" or anchor. You could use the locktite (don't over tighten) or make a shim.

Thanks a lot you have been very helpful i use locktite blue which did the job wonderfully and most important the result is not "permanent" means i could open the mac if it needs service in the future.

That's why I recommended locktite over superglue.
