I'm uncertain how these feet are stuck in the bottom. It seems as though the are slotted in some way, but cannot seem to keep them from sliding around. Cannot see them all that well from the inside. I'm guessing they slide in and then some glue was used to keep them in place.
Also, one is really bad, and need another to replace it but cannot find the item in the Dell Components document. Is there another place to find these new? Or I'll have to start looking for used ones.
Your are probably have to be creative and make up a fix yourself. Consider looking around the hardware dept--thick rubber washers, felt pads, mouse pads--you get the idea. What kind of surface is the computer on? Maybe add something there--but something safe-- not anything like carpet, I don't think there has ever been replacement feet for computers. Good luck.

I am not a Dell employee
They don't list them but they know about the issue
Only place Ive found that has them is Ebay
The internal Inspiron 3847 parts page list part number 5HD8H = Rubber foot. It is applicable for all of the following Dell model PCs but it is not available for sale.
You would have to search for part 5HD8H from an online 3rd party seller of used Dell equipment.
