    Remove it if you can, shouldn't be stuck on the shell and measure it.

    I'll see if I have one the same length and you fund the postage.

    if adam2050's is not long enough then i've probably got one that will fit. if you need one quickly then pcworld etc will sell them but they're about a fiver IIRC from them. try to get a latching one if you can as the normal ones have a tendency to work loose
