    CD Drive problems/Ejecting
    Hi,

    The other day I managed to spill Guinness on my macbook pro, it wasn't a huge amount at all and after some drying time I turned it on and all seems fine, the only thing is that CD's seem to really struggle to eject, I can only assume the material in the slot loader (dust excluder?) has soaked up some of the liquid and hardened slightly. My question is, can you replace this part? If I am correct it looks like it is glued it?

    Regards

    I can really only link you to the thread that I have at the end of this post, and leave you to make your come to your own conclusions, and leave you to work out if you want to spend any money on it, or let nature run it's course.
    Sorry to hear of this though.

    Sorry but that really doesnt answer the question, I am asking if a part can be replaced, the dust excluder that is not attached to the drive but glued to the body.

    It was meant to give you a little insight as to whether or not you want to be spending money on a liquid (beer) damaged Mac.
    It appears that the "dust excluder" is part of the lower casing.

    Anyway, even if it were available separately, then you could take the one you have off, clean it and glue it back on, no?
