Ответ на "Rubber foot fell off"Before attempting to glue it back on, you may want to consider simply replacing it with a new one. If you live near an Apple Store, go there and ask if they can replace it.

Ответ на "Restoring hard drive after replacing - what disk should I use"Given that you want to restore your machine from a Time Machine backup (assuming that your TM volume was backing up the entire boot disk), it may be simpler to just boot from the original disk that came with your machine, run the installer, select the language and then choose the "Restore from backup" item in the "Utilities" menu and follow the instructions to select your Time Machine volume. And remember to repartition the new drive with the GUID layout using the version of Disk Utility contained on the DVD before you restore the volume.

Ответ на "Is it possible to replace a Silicone Dome?"If you do use glue to repair the dome, be sure to allow the adhesive to fully cure before reassembling your MBP.

Follow the instructions for your adhesive and double (or even triple) the curing time, just to be sure.
