That's essentially what I did as well, minus the glue part.

Got an update. Managed the get a good seat with the pins and it read in a PC that I was working on today on the bench (lol) and it booted to it. After that I put it in one of our docking stations and it still even read it! I managed to image the drive, and have put in my RMA request to Kingston to get a new one. If I get approved I might do it, not sure how long it will take. I guess I will have to ask them. if it's going to be like a week that's not a big deal, but a month is. I'm going to try and put it in my PC when I get home and see what I can do. If I can get it to boot and can put it in my rack I will leave it alone. Hope for the best, expect the worst.

typically it is a week or two from the day you mail the drive

No no im sorry if i confused you, I did not put paste on L piece of plastic that came from the harddrive.

I put the glue on the edge of the sata cable port itself




I put arrows to the places I put the glue, I also put a small line of glue on the top part on the cable I used, it didn't have the clip like the picture above so the ridge was a little thicker.
using the nail glue honestly was really easy, it came out in small lines so I was able to put the glue where i wanted without having to worry about a huge glob dripping down.

I couldn't see why couldn't put a little glue on the L piece itself after its in the cable and ready to be placed against the HD, just don't overkill it have glue inside the cable port, thumb.gif
