check this guide for changing touch pad MacBook Pro 13" Touch Bar 2018 Teardown


May I ask why you need to replace it?


after a few minutes of not using it, on the first click it almost feels as if theres dirt in-between the pad and the click mechanism but its very faint so I know apple will not fix it and if they do it will be sent out for a week to do it so I would rather just replace the trackpad myself knowing it shouldn't be like that because my work one runs fine all the time


Thank you Emily, I looked at the guide but I didn't see if the 2018 and 2017 use the same trackpad. thank you

Finding the part will be next to impossible. You will void your warranty. How about just removing it and cleaning the dirt out. See step #6 of this guide: MacBook Pro 13" Touch Bar 2018 Teardown If this becomes an issue it will probably get covered like the keyboards have.
