RUBBER FEET fall off - HP Spectre x360 - 15-ap012dx - what to do?

HP Recommended
HP Spectre x360 - 15-ap012dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Rubber feet on less-than-1 yr old laptop fell off. There does not appear to be a replacement part - or is there? What is the best fix? An adhesive? I'm aware this is a widespread issue but an adhesive rubber strip from Home Depot that will constantly peel off is not an acceptable answer/fix. Any guidance? HP has nothing to offer in this area. Thanks in advance!

Hi:

 

Looking at the service manual, you would have to buy the whole bottom cover to replace the feet (chapter 3 page 15).

The cost to replace the bottom cover is expensive -- $93.72 from HP.

I would go the adhesive approach to reattach the feet the best you can.

 

I looked at chapter 5, page 21 of the service manual and it does not appear that there are any screws hidden under the rubber feet that you would need to remove to open the case in case if you want to upgrade parts or you need to replace any failed parts.

 

If that is indeed the case, I would super glue those feet on there, so they never come off.

 

I've done that before on other notebooks.

Hi Paul - Thanks for looking into this. I started down that path and hit a dead end with part numbers. Seems absurd to replace bottom cover so I will attempt the super glue and see how that goes. Cheers!
