Probably.. I wouldn't though because almost all systems have some type of sticker over one screw, to where if it is removed it voids all warrentys and your SOL

"SOL" is an acronym for "poo" out of luck, "poo" being a curse word... yeah, not very nice.

There might be a replacement part, but the only place to get one would be from Sony. However, Sony won't be able to just give you one piece or fix it for you uncer warranty because it's not covered by the warranty's terms. I would just live with it for now and see if any replacement parts become available over time from either 3rd party companies or regular people.
