How would you install it? With glue?

I was curious about that too.

I am happy to hear that they took care of you and were able to send you a new plate. Seems like a minor thing, but something that would bug my analytical head to have to look at the damaged one every time I would use it.

I think your best bet would a 3M spray adhesive.  Liquid nails would work but you would never be able to replace it again.

So I just replaced it right now. The only hard part was removing the lamp but that wasn't really that bad.
Yes they use 3M adhesive tape. Messy getting off the old stuff but Acetone made quick work of it.
One super tiny little thing is that the lamp hole isn't punched in the tape, but easy to just cut out. 
Huge difference in old to new.

Made me feel all tingly inside, like I got it brand new all over again. LOL

Not really a hard thing to do if you have some basic tools laying around.

UPDATE: unfortunately somehow I screwed up the light during the removal. Most likely that I pulled the leads apart and need to take the covers off to fix it.
