The backplate, or rear cover, is made of aluminum so far as I know. I believe he's referring to what I'd call the lower edge or surround of the tablet where the locator prongs from the keyboard dock would align the tablet to the keyboard/dock connector -at least that's what it looks like from photos presented with little or no context and, I believe, mislabeled as the backplate... I believe he's saying he has a problem where the "cups" in the tablet connect to the plastic edge structure of the tablet or that the cup assemblies or where they attach are partly plastic and one of them has broken? It's a little hard to interpret without the context of some larger images to see to just what he's referring, but that's what it looks like.
Having a bit longer to look at it, I think that if he can't get the part, then crazy glue and/or 5 minute epoxy to pot it in place may be in his future...
