My Problem

Old and dead trackpad.

My Fix

Only took ten minutes!

My Advice

Works like new! Took me ten minutes to replace the trackpad.

Will order again from iFixit as they use quality parts.

My Problem

My white unibody macbook was having problems with the trackpad. After days of searching the internet, trying software fixes, cleaning, checking battery, etc, nothing worked. I finally decided to go for it and buy a new replacement Trackpad with screws, the #00 Phillips Screwdriver, and the Y1 Tri-wing Screwdriver. Total cost with shipping for everything was $96.00.

My Fix

It took me less than 30 minutes to remove the old trackpad, clean around it, and install the new trackpad. My old macbook now works like new - well, at least the trackpad does. Follow the MacBook Unibody Model A1342 Trackpad Replacement guide on the ifixit website, and you will have no problems. Super easy to follow and replace.

My Advice

Take your time, and move slowly. You do not want to do any more damage to your macbook.

I highly recommend buying the Phillips #00 Screwdriver and the Y1 Tri-wing Screwdriver. It is worth it to have the right tools, and you will not damage any of the screws.

Be very careful when removing the wiring ribbons connecting the battery and the trackpad. Break one of these ribbons, and your repair is over until you get a replacement.

I would recommend cleaning around the topcase where the trackpad sits before installing the new one. Dirt, lint, dust, etc trapped here will cause problems for even a brand new trackpad. I cleaned mine with a cotton swab dipped in a little rubbing alcohol.

Don't waste any time trying to repair a faulty trackpad. Just drop $100 with iFixit, and your trackpad will be working like new in 30 minutes. Super easy fix.

My Problem

Trackpad clicker didn't work

My Fix

The instructions were very clear and replacement went easy.

My Advice

After installing the new trackpad the clicker still didn't work. I took it apart and noticed an adjustment screw that actuates the detent. I increased it and then it worked great. I didn't bother to try the old trackpad with the new adjustment but I am wondering if that was the problem all along and I really didn't need a new trackpad.

My Problem

The battery swelled in the middle so much that it pushed the track pad up our of the computer.

My Fix

Trackpad replacement seemed at first not to work, new pad was also out of alignment, but shifting the strips that hold it in slightly solved the problem and the track pad aligned. Worked perfectly. Putting the battery in and it's as good as new. Thanks.

My Advice

If the track pad has been pushed out of alignment, the metal strips that hold it in may need to be straightened out before screwing in the new pad.

My Problem

My trackpad lost it's clicking ability

My Fix

Replace with a brand new trackpad bought from www.ifixit.com

My Advice

Please don't rush with any of your repairs. That's what I got from my past and present experiences.

My Problem

My son dropped his phone onto his trackpad and chipped the corner of it.

My Fix

We received the part and tool within a couple of days. I reviewed the online repair process and ten minutes later we were up and running again.

My Advice

I would definitely use Ifixit again and recommend the online tutorials. They are easy to follow and detailed to make the repair easy.

My Problem

My MacBook track pad was acting up. Unable to click, not very responsive to touch.

My Fix

The repair process went smooth thanks for the useful detailed guide and all the tools and accessories provided by iFixit.com.

My Advice

If the track pad just not clickable (or having trouble clicking), just need to readjust the little circle metal underneath the track pad, no need to buy the track pad, unless your track pad is not responsive.

My Problem

Clorox Wipe + Trackpad = No Bueno

My Fix

15 mins start to finish, instructions were on point

My Advice

Keep Clorox Wipes away from your trackpad, kids. And if you don't, ifixit is the place to go

My Problem

Wine. Wine was the problem. A glass of wine all over the trackpad. Munted it completely, cursor was randomly zipping everywhere opening apps and windows.

My Fix

Replacing the Trackpad was easy-peasy lemon squeezy. All works fine now.

I think the guide says it's moderately difficult but I found it easy.

My Advice

Just print out the guide and follow it. Use an ice-cube tray to store the screws

My Problem

Trackpad hardly worked anymore. About 3 years old.

My Fix

Got the right tools, right part and a guide how to do the replacement. The guide was essentially right on target with one exception. The was a "set screw" (don't know if that is the right term) not mentioned in the guide that needed to be adjusted.

My Advice

Do it.
