    Why not just mix a thick paste of flower and water, then take the rubber foot you have and cover it with vegetable oil to avoid sticking and push it into the thick paste. when it dries you will have a mold and you can fill it with silicone and guess what, you have a new foot.

    the easiest and least expensive way to replace the rubber feet is to get a black rubber O-ring the same diameter as the original " feet " . carefully cut to length and slice in half .
    Glue them in place and " Presto " you have new feet.
    hope this works for you.

    My guess is about $3 to $6. Companies like to charge excessive amounts for a very small shipped order.

    You'd think that is wouldn't be such a hassle to get, but I just got off the phone with Acer parts and they don't even list them as a replacement part, go figure :oops: Has anyone found original replacement parts for this?
