Is this a good question?

Can you add pictures of the new cover and the old one, it would help to know more exactly what part is missing on the new one and needs to be moved.

Apologies. Unfortunately I've already fixed the device therefore I won't be able to take any pictures.

The touchpad board is actually glued to the cover I had to heat up the touchpad area on the cover (not the board) and used a metal pry tool from my IFIXIT to remove it.

Bit by bit the glue was coming off.

I was able to just stick it to the new cover and is working well

Hi @xinwarrior

Based on some research into the ASUS N53 it looks like this touchpad is easily transferred after removing a few surrounding screws.
