Trackpad physical click still doesn't work even after replacement.
I have a 13" Macbook Pro (5,5), Mid 2009. After a liquid spill that took out the keyboard and trackpad I replaced the upper case and trackpad, the battery...and while I was at it I moved the DVD drive to an external enclosure, added a SSD as my primary, moved my HDD into a secondary role, and upgraded to the maximum 8GB of RAM. The computer works wonderfully on Mavericks and I could easily see getting another year or so out of it.
The ONLY thing that I can not deal with is that after replacing the trackpad within a coulpe days the physical click stopped working. At first it was working every time... then it only worked on the right side near the corner, then only every 3rd time... and eventually not at all.
I purchased a second trackpad thinking that perhaps that was the issue. Once again, I installed it, it worked every time, then only sometimes in some places, and finally not at all. I switched back to the first trackpad I purchased and it worked again... only to suffer the same fate.
So, this appears to be an alignment issue.
My real question is: How do I get this permanently resolved?!?!
If I take this in to an apple store will they repair it and guarantee their work for long enough that I can be sure it'll work?
Any help would be much appreciated. I love this old machine, but not being able to drag and select is pretty awful.
Is this a good question?
