View Full Version : G53SX Palmrest Replacement

03-21-2012, 07:26 PM
After doing a few upgrades on my G53SX, some of the plastic bits have broken off of the front of my palm rest. So, now there's a gap beneath the touchpad and the front edge. Does anyone know how or where I can get a replacement?

I did find Top Palm Rest Assy for G53JW on Asus Parts EU (http://www.asusparts.eu/index.php?cPath=67674_73347_199593_199596_210863)

I don't think there will be any issue by replacing the palm rest for your SX model with the JW-version, exept if that part is different on these models.

I hope this helps :)

Awesome and thank you, I think that'll work!

No problem!

Since I don't know where you live, I hope they ship to the country where you are from :)

EDIT: Also since there is no picture I would contact them so they can answer if that is the right part you're looking for, would be sad if you got the wrong part :(

I'm in Southern California. I hope they don't rake me over the coals with shipping :(

Edit: Thanks I sent them an inquiry about the part and asked them if they know a better way to get that part in the US. Appreciate your help!

Okey, so I did find this (web)store perhaps you have heard of it? http://www.codemicro.com/store/product/Asus-13GN0Z1AP0511-Refurbished.php

They seem to have the part, but I can not find out the price and if they have it in stock.

I found them too (codemicro.com) and put in an inquiry. A little later, someone replied but said it's out of stock there. It looks like the European Asus store is the only real option. I haven't heard back from them, yet, though....

Oh, that's bad, perhaps they have other online/work times... so let us hope for that they answer you tomorrow and can ship to you :)
