Trackpad replacement MBP 17" 3.06GHZ core 2 duo

History

My track pad is not working very well sometimes it will if I hit it really hard it will work but the touch feature works but not the click so no click and drag etc.

My understanding is that to replace it is the whole case is there a chance its just the screws loose?

I don't think a loose screw is the problem, however you can replace just the track pad.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

There is a chance it is just the adjustment screw for the trackpad. Actually it sounds like it is EXACTLY the adjustment screw for the trackpad.

Do a search online for this repair. you need a special screw driver, but it totally fixable.

Here's the IFIXIT guide info: MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Early 2011 Trackpad Replacement go to Step 30 to adjust the click plate.
