It seems my Keyboard dock is falling apart. I keep it well looked after, but despite that the top is coming away from the bottom on the top right corner. Is this happening to anyone else? I can get it replaced (good old john Lewis) if it gets worse, but i haven't heard of this anywhere else.

Mine was loose around the dock area. Would make a loud click if pressed, like something wasn't screwed tight.
Sent it back to Asus and they sent out a new one. You might as well get it replaced now

Odp: Keyboard falling apart?
You're not the only one. I noticed the same fault yesterday, also the top right part. I wonder if it can be fixed without sending back the device.

Guys - carefully peel off the top 2 rubber feet - carefully - you will see two lose screws fall out.

Tighten them up and I suspect your issue will be resolved.

I have no idea how this got through Asus Q&A but everyone seems to have the same problem.

Nothing here... No clicks, no loose screws, no friction, nothing..

I dropped my keyboard once...bent the metal around the power input. I had to pry it back into place to get the charger to go back in now it doesn't really fit together at the top left side near the dock. I'm really bummed out about it. I wonder if square trade would consider it as part of the infinity in my warranty.

My TF700 dock has a similar problem. The only difference is that problematic area is along the docking port. Has anyone disassembled a dock and knows whether that area is held together with screws or just some plastic tabs?
