Hi all, this is my first post here and hopefully I will get a very satisfying response.

I recently lent a friend my MBA for the summer and it was returned with a cracked screen. To make the repairs as cheap as possible I have decided to replace the screen myself using the 'directions' on iFixit.com.

Everything went great while disassembling the laptop except for one issue: the front bezel of the screen is attached with double sided tape, and is very fragile aluminum (about the thickness of a few soda cans). With that said, I bent the bezel whilst attempting to remove it.

Is there any place that sells new or used Apple parts where I could find one of these bezels. I have found bezels for both Macbooks and Macbook Pros, but none for the Air.

I have considered taking the bezel to a jeweler or metalsmith to see what they can do with it.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Stephen

I would say check eBay, but I just did a quick search and found nothing. Of course something could pop up any minute. It seems that through Apple the only way to get the bezel is with a whole new screen.
