MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2009 Trackpad Replacement

15 - 30 minutos

Moderate

Meu Problema

Click function on the trackpad had stopped functioning. I didn't want to pay $215 + taxes to have someone else fix it... I only paid $900 for the laptop.

Minha Solução

I followed the steps provided on the site. Great confidence builder.

However, there is an important detail missing on some of the trackpad-replace guides. There is a 'screw' or unit at the bottom - thumb position of the trackpad that needs to be screwed in a certain distance in order to get that 'click' sound/flex amount to the pad. Our office engineer helped me with that part, otherwise, I would not have quickly solved my problem. I don't know what the part is called - see photo.

Otherwise, I was happy to save about $150 by doing it myself.

Meu Conselho

Since it was that last center, bottom screw that made all the difference, I'd try to include more guidance around that step.
