There are screws or plastic rivets. It might sound cheesy but I took the pleather rapped plastic top off and made a new one out of mdf in the same shape. Beveled the edges and sanded the crap out of it. Wrapped it with a thicker black vinyl from JoAnn fabrics with spray adhesive and staples and reattached it with 4 zip screws. Matches perfectly and has taken over 120kmi of sweaty forearm rather well. It doesn't creak like the stock one either.
