    • Use a P5 Pentalobe driver to remove eight screws securing the lower case:

    • Insert an opening pick into the gap you just created.

    • When the sliding clips are fully engaged and the lower case looks correctly aligned, press down firmly on the lower case to engage the four hidden clips underneath. You should feel and hear them snap into place.

    • Use a T5 Torx driver to remove the 13 screws securing the trackpad assembly:

    • Ten 5 mm screws

    • Three 5.8 mm screws

    • These screws all look similar—be careful not to mix them up.

    • Adding a little blue threadlocker to the screw threads during reassembly can help prevent the screws from working themselves loose over time.

    • Install the screws loosely at first, and then check the trackpad alignment before tightening them down.

    • Swing the display open slightly, but keep the MacBook upside-down. The trackpad assembly should separate and lay flat on the display.

    • As you remove the trackpad assembly, be very careful not to lose the nine small metal washers resting on the screw posts. (They will fly off and get lost with very little provocation.)

    • Carefully feed the trackpad's ribbon cable through its slot in the frame.

  22. MacBook Pro 16" 2021 Trackpad Replacement: passo 22, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the trackpad assembly.

    • During reassembly:

    • Make sure your new trackpad has a ribbon cable installed. If necessary, transfer the old cable, or install the one your new trackpad came with.

    • Make sure that each of the nine washers are present before you install the trackpad.

Conclusão

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before you install it.

Is there any way to adjust the trackpad button sensitivity? My trackpad seems to be a bit soft/flimsy when sliding my finger on it. I've already tried adjusting the click via the system preferences but it still feels kinda soft in the center of the trackpad. Wondering if there's a hardware fix to it...

Great guide!

I cleaned my trackpad on a 14" 2021 MBP. Gravy incident so the cleaning had to be through.

Everything is clean and back to normal, but the trackpad clicks are much louder.

Guessing the original glue used to hold trackpad down damped the sound somewhat because my double-sided tape solution doesn't have the same padding.

Not a huge deal, but much prefer the original click sound.

On a separate note, the gravy may have stained the LED key lighting. It's as clean as I can get it, but I've only cleaned under the keycaps.

The gravy keys are noticeably dimmer.

Suggestions on getting deeper to clean the LEDs?

Are these steps the same on a 2019 MacBook Pro 16"?

At the moment, I'm still in the troubleshooting stage. My built-in trackpad works perfectly most of the time, but often it'll become sluggish and intermittently unresponsive. For example, when I started searching for troubleshooting tips about 20 minutes ago, the trackpad was as described above out of the gate. After four or five minutes, it started working normally again. Do these symptoms mean I need to replace the trackpad?
