Is this a good question?

Hi

Unfortunately this part doesn’t appear to be available yet probably because of how new the device is

However I do have a solution for the issue you are having

1)you could contact valve and see if you can have it repaired under warranty (if it’s in warranty of course)

Or

2)you could follow the guides likened below

And try carefully cleaning any debris away using isopropyl alcohol and a soft brush ,doing this will hopefully clear away what’s causing your issue

Hopefully this helps

Any questions please ask

Thanks:-)

I had this problem from a single drop of soda that managed to fall in the crack between the touchpad and case.

I took out the touchpad and but was unsuccessful in getting the touchpad itself apart. There's 4 tiny retention clips holding it together that were giving me trouble.

I instead submerged it partially in isopropyl alcohol, let it fill, drained it, repeat. After a few times I dried it off, used compressed air to blow out any remaining internal moisture, then reinstalled.

Worked like new.
