Thinkpad T60 Damage

[ Edited ]

Hey guys,

I have a Thinkpad T60 BH6-2007 and one of the strips of the plastic guarding the fan near the back broke off. I was wondering, should I get this replaced? I was considering buying a new bottom shell off e-bay but if it isn't anything to worry about, I'll just leave it. It's no problem replacing it, I was once a hardware technician in IBM. Also, the catch of my 41++ Battery fell off. Should I just super-glue it back on? Thanks in advance.

Re: Thinkpad T60 Damage

It is not a problem, but check closely. Often breaks in that area are really caused by a broken magnesium frame around the motherboard. There is a weak point on the left between the fan and the vga port
