May 31, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Are you a MacBook user who is irritated with the issues that dog the bottom of your machine? There are  many who complain  of peeling rubber bases of their white unibody MacBooks. Apple seems to have realized the issue and has now swung into action to keep users happy. The Cupertino company has announced a new support program called the MacBook Bottom Case Replacement program to address the issue.

Glue problems have, in fact, been turning to be an irritant with the rubber bottom part on recent MacBook models peeling off. Apple has made arrangements to help you replace it at any Apple Store.

The MacBook Bottom Case Replacement program covers affected MacBooks for two years from original purchase date. That means MacBooks bought between October 2009 and April 2011 will come under the MacBook Bottom Case Replacement program.

You can either pick a replacement from the Apple Stores or Apple Authorized Service Providers. In case you would want to do that without traveling to those physical stores, you can also place your order for a replacement kit online.

Your online order will bring to your doorstep a self service kit that includes a new bottom case, screws, a Phillips head screwdriver and instructions explaining how to remove the bottom case and install the new one.

The replacement comes absolutely free of cost.  Though this is not so path breaking a deal, we are happy to see how Apple addresses even minor issues very promptly.

You need to have in mind that Apple will in no way give you a refund if you have already paid for a repair or replacement after you found this issue with your device. Further, the program will not extend your standard warranty too.

So if you have spotted issues with the rubber bottom part of your MacBook, go for a replacement now, for no cost whatsoever. Head here and you will be happy to know how Apple is addressing the issue.
