Lol Clinton - this is the problem - as you'll see from my original post it started HT5236 - which is the article you referred me to - which I frustratingly have read
Frustrating because there's no link to a place online in Apple where you can simply buy the replacement kit from!!!

Did you try the "Contact Apple" link - http://www.apple.com/support/contact/?
I've not seen them in the online store - perhaps if you call 1-800-MYAPPLE?

I agree, this is one heck of a pain in the butt. You have to call Apple Care and go through the whole song and dance with your machine's serial number etc etc. Why not just have a link on the help page to purchase the kit directly? Geez.

If you call Apple with the phone number on your Apple Account, so long as your product is registered the process is fairly simple. When you call in they'll inform you it may cost $20 BUT it wont. Tell the person on the other end you want the DIY replacement kit for the bottom foot pads. Inform them that it is a special order item if they appear to not know what youre referring to. Its ~14 plus the shipping cost. Definitely the easiest and best way to do it IMO. Just ordered mine and the price is way cheaper than if you order from elsewhere for the tools included.

The URL doesn't work properly.

That link works.. i was skeptical if the adhesive would withstand the heat from the macbook over a long period of time.. the replacement foot pads from apple in my mind might do a better job.. only time will tell
