My laptop's DVD drive cover broke!

Hello!

My laptop DVD drive plastic cover broke at one end, and it's not just plastic, because the open button and the LED are connected to this piece of plastic, so I'm afraid it would completely break.
What glue do you suggest me to use so it will look good cosmetically? A glue that might not be seen and that glues plastic well?
eBay links will be more then welcome :p

Thanks!

search Ebay by drive model number > DVD Drive Bezel

That cover (bezel) just snaps onto the drive drawer

Thanks! It just snaps? because I saw there are some electronics going to it and I'm afraid it's soldered or something and not just snap ?
