Easier way to clean up under trackpad?

Hey there!

My trackpad isn't 'clicky' anymore. It works, but clicking feels very mushy and no longer makes any clicking noises, the travel distance is also extremely short. I’m worried that there may be dirt under the trackpad and would like to clean it up.

The question here is whether there's an easier way to get under there other than by following this guide. Removing speakers and batteries - including all the adhesive - seems a bit overkill for a simple cleanup.

See if the battery has started to swell and is putting pressure on the bottom of the trackpad.
