Hello,

I've noticed a problem with my new alienware m17x r4. I know this is kind of a too cosmetical issue but those door "tabs" that prevent dust from entering the dvd drive are pretty open. they don't fit perfectly and that may turn out to be an issue i believe. Does anybody know if that belongs to the drive itself or the chassis of the laptop. And how could I replace it. Thanks

I've just check mind.

It seems it is Double Side Tpaed on the housing/chassis. I can be wrong!

For any reason. Suggest leave it along...

It is there just enough to keep the lager dirt and pet fur form going into the Drive.

If I were you!
Unless it gets in the way of normal operation.
Than Call Support...

Also! It is Slut Load Drvie.
It pulls the disc in.
Meaning... It will pull anything along with the disc.

Not sure If DELL will condsier that is a Physical Damage.
If so. You will need the other 'Warrenty' to have it cover.
