    How can I get replacement rubber feet.
    A while back I noticed that one of the rubber feet, (that's the technical name for them isn't it?), on my 15' MacBook Pro had fallen off and gone missing.

    For the sake of symmetry and to stop it from wobbling on my desk, I removed the remaining 3 feet, which I still have stored in a safe place.

    So to get the point, I'd like to know how, or indeed if, I can get replacements. If so, is it easy to attach the new feet?
    If not is is there any product I could buy online you would recommend?

    The MacBook Pro is still under warranty for at least another month so can I just contact the nearest Apple Service Provider to post me a new set, or even Apple itself - do they have an email address for this kind of thing? - Couldn't find it on their website if they do.

    I live in Ireland and we don't have any Apple Stores here (Gasp!)
    Even Apple Resellers and Service Providers are pretty few and far between and I don't want to be without my MacBook while it's shipped off to Apple over something so minor.
    To be honest, I guess I'm just lazy and I'm hoping for an easy solution

    Any advice would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks for reading.

    Well, I've looked at and and much to my surprise, neither seem to sell just the feet.

    All hope is not lost though. It appears that someone on eBay is selling them:

    Although they seem geared toward the older Powerbook G4, the cases are very similar and they should work just fine.

    Good luck and let us know how you make out!
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Thanks for the info cwa107.

    If all else fails, I'll get them on eBay.

    I got the details for 2 Authorized Service Providers in my area and I plan on calling them in the next day or so to see what they can do.

    Will keep you posted.

    try your local hardware store. seriously. any store really that sells things like shelf paper and clothes hangers should do.

    unless you absolutely have to have the exact same feet, i guarantee you you'll find something that will work just as well.

    Well, if you do want the same exact feet, you can get them by calling Apple support and getting to the parts department. It took me about 4 tries as they kept forwarding me to parts but I would get a support specialist instead. They cost $17 which is too high but they are overnighted and I (hope) will be more rugged than getting some at a hardware store. They send the feet with an adhesive kit.

    I also had this problem. I managed to find them on ebay, they pop up occasionally:
    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Hope this helps someone.

    I bought my MacBook Pro Rubber Feet from here. They're the cheapest sellers and they sell internationally.

    Hey thanks! I was wondering where and how to get those myself. The interior ring from inside had deteriorated on a couple of mine after 2-3 years. I was able to saved the disc 'feet'. I just used a wide 3M mounting tape, the black type with red backing. Trimmed in circular shape and size as the disc. Then stick the tape in between the 'feet' and the bottom cover. Haven't had any issues since. I think the feet pad is even more secure then original with the 3M tape.

    Just thought I would share to help someone else with the same problem. Use 3M mounting tape. I'm going to order a set of those feet for spare too.
