Most guides show that you have to replace the whole topcase to replace the track pad, but if fact the part can be found for under $40.00 by doing a search for "661-5244 & trackpad. It's just a matter of four screws to replace it once you get to it.

I replaced just the trackpad on my late-'08 15" A1286 MBP. I was able to get the part off eBay and it took about 45 minutes total. I think I paid ~$50 for the part. I did have to buy a tri-wing screwdriver in order to set the depth/click of the pad.

I wrote up a how-to somewhere on this site but unfortunately I didn't take pictures.
