What’s the purpose of this metal plate covering the trackpad?

Does this metal plate serve to dissipate heat or something? Because the only thing on the other side of it is a battery, and I can’t see how it would short anything

The small screw attached to the plate is very difficult to remove!

It’s important!

When correctly mounted it offers a bit more structure rigidity (case torsional twist) as well as offer structure for the battery. It also helps in controlling debris and liquid entry and lastly helps control the air flows as you don’t want air leakage to areas that don’t need cooling.

Please put it back!
