    Not necessary. There's only one plastic piece on the back - it's the pass-through for the antennas.

    To answer the OP's question - yes, you will need to replace the entire back panel - that part is not sold separately that I can find.
    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!
