Screws on bottom case coming loose
#4
Or the nut broke loose. I've had mine apart many times now but I don't recall what the nut looks like. Also there have been reports that the screws are very soft, it could be that the screw is stripped.

I don't know why you need a whole bottom case to replace the foot, but it does seem that you need the screw repair kit.

The factory used blue threadlocker which is probably equivalent to Loctite Blue 242. It seemed a little weaker to me. But I could be wrong. Certainly don't use any threadlocker that's red.

FWIW you can buy a whole set of rubber feet for around $2 at your local hardware store.
