Upon opening a MacBook Pro (15" Mid-2010, 2.67 GHz i7, 8GB, GT330, Hi-Res anti-glare display), I noticed a small loose plastic part. Its diameter is ~5mm.

Does this plastic part belong to the MacBook Pro?

Should this plastic part be attached to something?

Below are pictures taken from two opposing sides, and from the lateral side (object leaned to watchmaker's screwdriver)

  • Ummm... you sure that's not a button, like from a coat? – NoahL Mar 25 '17 at 3:42
  • While it bears some resemblance with a button, it is too small for any non-decorative button, and doesn't look like a button from the lateral view. Also it is very thin, and can be bent easily (unlike any button). – tsttst Mar 25 '17 at 3:53

    Can you add an approximate diameter in the question? – NoahL Mar 25 '17 at 3:55
  • The diameter of 5 mm is listed in original post – tsttst Mar 25 '17 at 15:39

    I'm thinking it might be a membrane that goes over a speaker or microphone. I have seen similar things in radios and other electronic equipment but not specifically in a MacBook. – Steve Chambers Mar 26 '17 at 17:24

In the meantime I found out that this part forms the inner part of the rubber stands at the bottom of the laptop.
