Trackpad issue not working properly click wasnt working
10 - 45 minuten
I needed to repair my trackpad, looking at some tutorial online to see if there is a way of fixing it, so I started unscrewing the bottom open up the laptop, then the trackpad is under the battery so needed to remove the battery 1st
Then looking at the battery I noticed it wasnt a regular shape and for a while already I got the OS X status that the battery can still work but probably need a replacement. And also taking out the screw next to where the battery is located notice the aluminium cover was pushed by it.
Then battery remove and before changing anything regarding the screw of the trackpad just opened the computer that was upside down to click on it and the %#*@ trackpad was clicking as how I remembered it.
So conclusion was that the battery that was swallowed was pushing on the trackpad, then looking at some of the comment under the tutorial that you guys had the same issue.
So solution was to replace the battery, and in 2 things in one trackpad working and I have a new battery life.
Already did it a couple times for cleaning the computer, nothing much to say after the problem explanation, just took less than 10min to open up the computer and replace battery and then battery working now and trackpad also :)
No advice in particular except that I know sometimes it can be long to read all comments under a tutorial but just take the time to do it, sometimes you'll see some people with same issue with a computer with 6yo+ than could same you time :)
