bracket and screws for Dell Optiplex 5080 Tower

Hello, I bought the Dell Optiplex 5080 Tower computer, configured with a 256gb ssd. When I opened the computer I saw that the plastic bracket to put in the 2.5-inch hard drive (visible on page 24 of the service manual) was missing and also the 4 # 6-32 screws to connect the hard drive to 3.5 inches (visible on page 25 of the service manual).
I would like to know from where you can buy the 2.5 inch hard drive bracket and # 6-32 screws for the 3.5 inch hard drive, these products are not available on the site.
What model is the bracket, I saw that it is a bracket where you can put two 2.5 inch hard drives inside, it is shameful that Dell ships these computers without a plastic bracket and 4 screws for one hard drive. I will never buy a Dell computer again.

Re: bracket and screws for Dell Optiplex 5080 Tower

Unfortunately i just had the same "experience" and cannot believe to my eye....

After had 4 dell Optiplex SFF I was socked to see that those parts are missing

I mean 4 screws........ how much cost left 4 screws in a case and a caddy which is just plastic????

On top  of this I'm been spending all morning to try to find out if the Desktop is been made this way or not but all the technical support sale and etc seems don't know the answer...

2 years a go i had to spend a week on the phone for manage to order a optional display port for the 5060

I hope at least from here someone will get back to me ( ps I wrote already few email ...)

Re: bracket and screws for Dell Optiplex 5080 Tower

Hi All,

I too find myself in this situation.  Has anyone been able to identify a part number for the "four (#6-32) grommet screws" required to mount a 3.5" hdd in the new Optiplex 5080 MT chassis?

Yes, I know one can find approximate solutions on Amazon (i.e. grommet screws that look similar but not exact) but I'd really prefer to have the actual Dell part in this instance.

In the event that it might be helpful to someone else, I did find the drive bracket required to mount a 2.5" drive (hdd or ssd) in the 5080 MT. I don't have a part number but this is the part description:

ASSY,BRKT,HD,2.5,CADDY,5080,MT

The cost is $2.50.

Unfortunately, for me, I need the 3.5" solution (i.e. the mounting screws).

I don't object to Dell not including miscellaneous parts associated with components that were not selected in the original purchase configuration.

What I do find really, really frustrating is how difficult it is to identify a needed part (post-sale) and then purchase that part from Dell. The process really shouldn't be this difficult and time-consuming.

Thank you in advance for your help.
