Trackpad wasn't working correctly and I didn't want to spend hundreds to repair or replace the computer. The computer itself still works great.
I found it to be pretty easy. Good directions and photos. One small correction: In step8 the #000 tool was required, not #00. Good thing I bought the whole tool kit rather than the individual tools ;-)
I used the kitchen counter as a workspace so I wouldn't be standing and moving around on carpet (static) while working. Follow instructions carefully and use shot glasses or small cups/bowls to hold the screws in order as you take them out so you can easily put them back.
Be sure to test the trackpad BEFORE replacing the bottom cover of laptop - you can adjust the screw at the bottom edge of trackpad to adjust trackpad sensitivity.
A cup of coffee crashed on the macbook air… No more click, no more keyboard… Changed the trackpad first and everything return to normal.
Use a plastic tool to take of the flat cables from where are!
I ask for repair at a professional store and they told me that it is gonna cost 250$ to replace my trackpad because " trackpad is in one piece with the keyboard " for me it doesn't make sense at all , I order tools at IFIXIT to verify my doubt and I was right , trackpad can be replace without changing keyboard , logic , so I order the piece from IFIXIT and with the Guide on line , I made the change without any problem . I save $150 box and had a great time doing the work , I was very proud of me .Thank you Ifixit .
No problem at all , guide very clear , step by step .
Take your time , don't rush , be methodic to be shure you don't get lost with all those tiny pieces .
