Original trackpad was acting erratic, great sometimes and doing everything else that you don't want other times. Rebooting helped, and turning off some of the functions of the trackpad helped also.
But the problem still sooner or later came back.
Replacing the trackpad took all of 30 minutes. I just followed the pictured instructions on iFixit. Trackpad works great now.
Only problem one would run into is not having the right tools. I borrowed the correct tools and had no problems with the change out.

Trackpad's "clicker" button worked intermitently. Dragging-and-dropping had begun to feel mostly like just dropping.
The tutorial was great, after reading it I felt confident enough to perform the task blindfolded. Loved all the pictures and markups. The repair went pretty smooth, though some of the suggested tools were wrongly sized. The Philips P00 that was recommended felt over-sized and I believe should have been a P000. I also felt the Y1 recommended was undersized and should have been a Y2.
I got the economy drivers and was unimpressed. While they did work for the job I wouldn't want to use them again for fear of stripping screws. I used the "add tools to cart" feature and missed the premium option. Next time I will get the nicer versions.

My son had a 5 year old MacBook that had a broken trackpad. It is a great machine and has at least a few years left of service. Apple and an independent shop each wanted almost $350 to repair it.
The repair went great. The video was extremely helpful, and the directions that could be printed out step by step provided a great way to keep track of the screws and hardware that had to be dismantled and put back.
This type of repair is definitely something the average person can do. It is great to be able to independently repair something you rely on and not have to be reliant on others who will charge several times what the repair is worth.

The trackpad from the MacBook from my parents sometimes doesn't show any reaction. So I change it out with a new one.
I do it so, how it will be look in the Guide from iFixit.
When you make it so, how it tells in the Guide, you doesn't make any mistakes.
