What model is it?
my 12" aluminium (aluminum) G4 seems to be built around the dvd drive. I read there have been many failures with this model, no doubt because it is just a wee one, and they had to shoe horn in a tiny drive. I've dropped it in my van, and off my bike, as well as banging it on the desk to get the mayor's attention during a council meeting, so it's had a hard life, but still functions otherwise ( I have a remote cd burner on my desktop).
may help. I replaced bits of mine, just be methodical, and take notes, or even photos. I took off some obscure part, and simply re attached it, after a bike crash, thus bringing my laptop back to life, following some advise from a genius at the Regent street shop. Apple will replace the casing if you take it in, if the case is damaged. This put their quote up from about GBP80 to GBP280, when I quite like the dents and scratches and so wanted to keep the original casing. Good luck.
