My Problem

The Trackpad's glasse was broken and the clic not working. I decide to change the complete Trackpad with a new one.

My Fix

I just followed the procedure of ifixt and replaced the broken one with the new one. It's perfectly woring.

My Advice

Take the time to clean up the fans and the dust of the motherboard. Important : Before to screw the battery, adjust the trackpad click with the screw to have good feeling.

My Problem

The trackpad was belly-up, the cursor was possessed, moving around Ouija fashion while the screen kept sneaking back and forth between the "dashboard" and the main screen.

My Fix

There were a few moments of panic when I realized that this was not going to be as easy as the instructions for the mid 2010 13" MacBook Pro Unibody, and that I would have to get underneath the logic board to do the install.

My Advice

Since there is no guide for replacing the trackpad on a MacBook Pro 15” Unibody Mid 2010 you can splice these two guides:

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Upper Case Replacement

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Upper Case Replacement

Follow this guide to step 24, “Carefully lift the logic board assembly from the left” - but you can just tip the logic board up and sneak the cable into place.

From here follow the guide for MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010 Trackpad Replacement, steps 7-11

MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010 Trackpad Replacement

My Problem

My trackpad had begun to malfunction. I had exhausted all of the software and system solutions, and it was time to try a replacement.

My Fix

I successfully changed the trackpad, but managed to break an electrical connector for a fan on the motherboard, which caused no end of grief getting it re-soldered to the board. The T6 screwdriver was not what I had hoped either -- I was looking for a fancy star-shapped head and it was really just a conventional philips head.

My Advice

Be very ginger with these parts - feel around before you decided to make a decisive pull. This was the first step and I failed to probe to understand how the connector was connected. I yanked too soon.

My Problem

track pad was jumping.

My Fix

I absolutely love the ifixit tutorials! They didn't have the tutorial for the mid 2010 model but I was able to use both the Early 2009 and 2011 tutorials together to do the job. Just went slow following each step carefully and had no problems at all. Felt like a doctor coming out of surgery when I was done.

My Advice

The screws holding on the track pad are the smallest Be careful not to drop one.

My Problem

My track pad started acting up jumping around all over the place and I tried all the possible solutions online, checking the battery, reinstalling my OS and others to no avail. Then one day I noticed a tiny crack by the corner of the track pad and as it grew longer after a few months the track pad got worst until it stopped working completely. I was hesitant to try to replace it myself but finally decided to give it a shot. I'm extremely pleased with this new track pad and how the repair went.

My Fix

I bought a toolkit for macs and iPhone and it had every tool I needed for the repair and it was worth it. There are so many places where you can break something important that you do need the special tools. I didn't find the guide for my mid 2010 mac-book pro but the next year's guide was 99% accurate, the display cable was slightly different but I figured it out. I would say it took me about 30 minutes to replace the track pad and assemble everything back and everything works perfect now. I guess the broken track pad was affecting my mac because it was very slow and buggy before and after the repair it got so much faster and works smoothly. I compared the track pads old/new side by side and they were identical in every way.

My Advice

Get the proper tools, take your time, use plenty of light, use a tray to layout the screws and parts and follow the instructions exactly. The ribbon cable plugs have this hinged lever that it must be the width of a cat's hair, you can feel it but is really hard to see so I would get a magnifying glass to make sure you don't pull it the wrong way, then after replacing the ribbon cable don't forget to lock the lever down again and like the instructions say use your nail and don't force it.

My Problem

Someone who owned cats spilled orange juice on their MacBook Pro trackpad. It continued to work for a few weeks then suddenly stopped.... When they brought it in and I opened it up, there was sticky evaporated sugary OJ residue with Cat hair caked in it all over the underside of the trackpad and fans. Obviously they needed the trackpad replaced.

My Fix

After spending far to much time with Cotton balls and rubbing alcohol, I got the internals of the MacBook cleaned. I was not sure if replacing the trackpad would work. My fear was the logic board might be damaged itself. Luckily the repair went very smoothly and sure enough the Trackpad worked like a charm. I was very glad it came with replacement screws. One less cat hair infested piece to mess with.

My Advice

In the case you ever do spill a liquid on your laptop. It is best to get it checked our right away instead of continuing to use it for a few weeks. Better to be safe than sorry.

My Problem

The battery on our MacBookPro had swollen and pushed the trackpad out as well as bending the bottom-case.

My Fix

The repair went well -- with the right tools and parts from iFixit I was able to save my company hundreds of dollars.

My Advice

Make sure you dispose of the battery in an ecologically responsible way.

My Problem

Track pad no longer accepted clicks. Tapping and scrolling still worked but I couldn't right or left click any more. Battery capacity was well under 50% no longer a portable laptop.

My Fix

Battery is extremely straight forward. While there was no specific Track pad replacement tutorial, following the steps to removing the logic/mother board most of the way thru was all I needed to remove the old trackpad

My Advice

The only real advice I can think of, is invest in the toolkit with every possible bit you need.

The ifix it kit I bought is amazing.

My Problem

My touchpad was not allowing me to select & drag anything. Even after opening my Macbook Pro to make sure the battery wasn't swelling and cleaning any dust/debris inside. It would respond to everything else.

My Fix

The repair went well, but it was a monster to put it back together. I was able to take everything apart in 30 minutes, but spent the next 2 hours trying to connect the connectors for the microphone & power.

My Advice

Be very mindful of the connector to the microphone & power on the underside of the motherboard. Most of the connectors inside Apple laptops/desktops are unlike any PC's you may have experienced.

My Problem

I have replaced the optical drive and the original hard drive by 2 ssd samsung 1.5 years ago. A few weeks ago the hard drive cable of the primary one breack.

So I had the problems below :

- 1 hard drive not recognized

- Click brocken on trackpad

- battery in service mode

My Fix

About the trackpad no guide was concerning my macboom pro 2.53 GHz mid 2009 but I partially unscrewed screws fixing the motherboard to the upper case to replace the trackpad map.

Battery & hard drive cable replacement : easy

My Advice

The new replacement batteries proposed by ifixit for MBP 2.53 GHz mid 2009 wasnkt exactly the same but ok. A bit bigger than the original one, so you have to play with the map (a bit too long), and the 3 screws. But it works fine.
