Does anyone have experience replacing the feet? I see iFixit sells them (MacBook Air Plastic Feet) but it’s not clear what kind of glue to use (and that webpage doesn’t have a “comment” section where to ask such questions). Also Apple has a support page for the replacement of similar feet in MacbookPro (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202450) that seems to suggest that their own kit (which I can’t find for my laptop) came with glue.
