    Go to www.ifixit.com and look at the take apart instructions for your MacBook Pro. You might be able to find out what that part is called from there.

    Maybe something at:
    http://www.welovemacs.com
    http://www.powerbookmedic.com

    BTW: Is it broken or ????

    It looks like one could be made from some scrap plastic or even with a hot glue gun and hard glue stick and a drill.

    Looks like a plasti9c tab with a screw insert to hold the back on. Don't think you're going to find a replacement unless you get the whole case insert as it holds the back on.

    Have you tried a local Apple repair place or maybe an authorized apple service dealer could order one if it's shown or listed in their Service Source.

    Or maybe they have one from a parts MBPro.

    The OP is from Chile, SA. Probably no Apple Stores there but maybe an authorized Apple service repair? It doesn't appear from his IP address that he's near a large metro area.

    Even if there were any Apple stores close by they probably wouldn't be of any help with all their rules and regulations of not selling parts.

    But there may be a good chance at a local authorized Apple dealer and especially considering that that area seems to be well advanced in recovery and recycling.

    Here's hoping that may be helpful.

    Particularly as the 1278 model was first released in June 2009!
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I'm not sure how that comment should be translated or taken harry, but I'd visualize that owning a Mac in Chile would be akin to a car owner in Cuba.

    Lots of ingenuity involved to keeping them both together and running.


    EDIT PS:
    Her's an old user's experience of a Mac repair part in Chile:

    Obsolete is obsolete and even obsoleto!
