Trackpad replacement?

Is it possible to replace a trackpad? Or repair an oversensitive trackpad on the computer? If so is it very difficult?

Is this a good question?

iFixit sells a replacement trackpad with the upper case: MacBook Pro 15" (Model A1226) Upper Case

It is listed as "moderate" difficulty. In my experience, if you are careful and take your time, sort screws as you remove them, you'll be fine.

Unfortunately, the trackpad itself is not replaceable, so Push Eject's advice is the best that can be done.

This may be a bit simplistic but try going into your System Preferences - Hardware - Trackpad and adjust the tracking speed and scrolling speed. Easy to do and very cheap.
