I just recently dropped my macbook pro.
There is now a dent above the cd drive and the casing on top of that has started to come off. I have had my macbook pro for a little over two years and I'm pretty sure the protection plan i got with it is over. I was wondering if there were any quick fixes that I could do.
Here are pictures to give a better overall perspective:

    Whatever protection plan you had would not cover damage where you dropped it. Try http://www.ifixit.com/
    for parts.

    There's no quick fix — your machine's case is seriously damaged. You'll need a new top case and bottom case, and those will cost several hundred dollars.

    If you bought the AppleCare Protection Plan, it provides coverage for three years from the date on which your computer was purchased. It won't cover this damage, but what remains of your coverage will be reinstated and will cover subsequent failures of the machine *IF Apple performs the necessary repairs now.* If you make the repairs yourself, or have someone not authorized by Apple make them, the remainder of your AppleCare coverage will be void.

    Welcome to Apple Discussions!

    Check to see if your homeowner's or renter's insurance will cover this type of accidental damage. If you paid with a credit card, check with them as well--sometimes there is some sort of accidental damage provision.

    Good luck!
