Thank you for sharing the above details and I understand your point. As you know that the metal plate in the picture was secured by the plastic locks, in order to open the plate to replace the keyboard even HP technicians would have opened it. I am just curious to know that how they will fix it back as the plastic locks are now open. Will they glue it use glue gun or some plastic glue?
In case you have any idea, can you pls let me know?
