Hier wird der Austausch des Trackpads gezeigt.

    • Schalte den Computer aus. Lege ihn auf eine weiche Oberfläche mit der Vorderseite nach unten.

    • Entferne folgende Schrauben:

      • Zwei 8mm 5-point Pentalobe Schrauben

      • Acht 2,5 mm 5-point Pentalobe Schrauben

    • Den speziellen Schraubendreher für die 5-point Pentalobe Schrauben findest du hier.

    When you say:

    Remove the following ten screws:

    Two 8 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

    Eight 2.5 mm 5-point Pentalobe screws

    Do the 8mm & 2.5mm dimensions refer to the LENGTH of those screws, or the size of the pentalobe? That is, are there other sizes of pentalobe drivers like there are for hex, phillips and torx? When only one dimension is provided, it is usually the socket/driver size, not the screw length, maybe since the length cannot be seen when the screw is installed.

    Can I suggest that you clarify your instructions so folks are confident they are only in need of _one_ pentalobe driver?

    Nerdily yours,

    The 8mm and 2.5mm are the length of the screws. One pentalobe P5 screwdriver suffices for all the screws (P5 is implicitly the size of the pentalobe screw heads).

    I sourced all the parts from ifixit, plus a magnetic project mat which I found to be very useful for organising the teardown and reassembly.

    Allen - Antwort

    The magnetic mat is


    Keep the 2.5mm tiny screws away from the MagSafe connector as they will be attracted and sucked in to the magnet.

    • In diesem Schritt wirst du den Akku abtrennen, damit es während der Reparatur keinen Kurzschluss gibt.

    • Hebele den Akkustecker an beiden kurzen Seiten mit dem flachen Ende des Spudgers hoch, um ihn aus seinem Anschluss auf dem Logic Board zu lösen.

    • Biege das Akkukabel ein wenig vom Logic Board weg, so dass sich der Stecker nicht versehentlich wieder mit dem Anschluss verbinden kann.

    When reassembling the connector wire needs to be bent to fit.

    • Löse folgende fünf Torx T5 Schrauben, welche den Akku am oberen Gehäuse befestigen:

      • Zwei 5,2 mm Schrauben

      • Eine 6 mm Schraube

      • Zwei 2,6 mm Schrauben

    Be carful with the torque when reassembling, these screws seem able to go a little too far and crack through the plastic of the battery.

    Daniel Schlaug - Antwort

    • Wenn du am Akku arbeitest, vermeide es, die sechs offenliegenden Lithium Polymerzellen anzufassen oder zu drücken.

    • Hebe den Akku an der Kante an, die dem Logic Board am nächsten ist, und entferne ihn aus dem oberen Gehäuse.

    I’m not an expert and cannot provide advice about this, but I think that it might be important to recalibrate the energy saving settings after the battery has been replaced.

    • Klappe den Sicherungsbügel am ZIF Stecker des Trackpad Datenkabels mit der Spudgerspitze hoch.

    • Schiebe das Flachbandkabel vorsichtig aus dem ZIF Stecker heraus.

    • Justiere mit der Torx T5 Stellschraube für die Höheneinstellung der Empfindlichkeit des Trackpads. Entferne sie aber nicht.

    The Trackpad Sensitivity Screw in this model is a T6 Torx screw

    andresaldana - Antwort

    Need a description of why and how much to adjust the sensitivity screw. Do you need to put the screw back to its original position?

    blairweaver - Antwort

    • Schiebe mit einer Hand das Flachbandkabel zur Tastatur etwas hinein, um an den ZIF Stecker darunter zu gelangen.

    • Klappe mit einem Spudger den Sicherungsbügel hoch.

    • Lasse das Kabel vorsichtig aus dem Stecker gleiten.

    Be careful with the retaining piece on the ZIF connector, it released with a bit of a fight but then broke when I tried to close it after reinserting the cable. :(

    Mine popped off too but I managed to get it back on. The clip has two very small bumps on the side that goes down the way so look for them when trying to re-attach it.

    David McKeitch -

    Mine broke too when re-inserting the cable, had to order a new trackpad because of this. Couldn't get it back in and broke off a small piece of plastic trying to fix the latch. I ordered a new trackpad. I really don't hope this happens with the new trackpad.

    Markus -

    Note on the two ZIF connections. The smaller connection has it's ZIF lock toward the front of the laptop while the wider ZIF connection faces the KB. I busted the keyboard connections thinking the ZIF was in the opposite direction. Had to replace it with a new trackpad.

    I have found that I was able to wiggle the cables out of the ZIFs carefully. idk if this works for all ZIF connections and I'd love to hear anyone who has an opinion on removing ZIF cables. But this makes it much easier to remove and not break the ZIF connections.

    Tim - Antwort

    I work with a Magnifier with a light. Blowing up the subject so you have it really magnified to a high degree helps enormously. I have removed and reattached many zif cables successfully without a hitch. Act like a surgeon.

    Paolo Alberto - Antwort

    Worked fine. Even the keyboard ZIF Cable. Reinserting it was bit tricky.

    hschreiber - Antwort

    I had a bit of trouble getting the keyboard cable back in before noticing that it needs to be off the surface of the trackpad to slide in. The whole arrangement is awkward; just be patient and take it slowly.

    • Entferne die sechs 1,5 mm Kreuzschlitzschrauben #00, welche das Trackpad festhalten.

    Phillips #00 screwdriver should be added to the tool list

    brian - Antwort

    The trackpad sold to me by ifixit did not come with the little hinge plates. I had to remove the six other screws and transfer these to the new trackpad. If this is based on using the part as sold here then the photo needs to be corrected to show the six red circles on the phillips screws that are on the trackpad and not on the Mac itself. These are installed quite tightly and I nearly destroyed two of them (on the body side as indicated in the photo) using the correct tool. The six that screw into the trackpad are much more gently installed. I don't think you are generally supposed to remove the six to the chassis of the MBA. Please update this to correct this - UNLESS THE PART FROM APPLE INCLUDES THESE TWO HINGE PLATES AND SCREWS. In that case, please INDICATE THIS difference in the text of the article. It added work and a bit of stress when the two screws were nearly trashed and I realized the new part did not come with replacements. Not good. However, this was otherwise a very easy project. THANKS!

    Wade Rackley - Antwort

    +1 On this comment. The trackpad replacement kit from iFixit does NOT include the hinge plates. The hinge plates must be removed from the removed from the old trackpad (and the additional six screws holding in place). There is the need to replace 12 screws total in this step AND the removal of the old hinge plates to re-use, and re-install on the new, replacement trackpad assembly. This is a critical miss in this step's directions.

    If someone could please respond ASAP, i was removing one of these screws from the above picture and it was completely destroyed despite my best efforts. The other 5 came out no problem but i have one screw that is stripped beyond use and i have no clue what do to with it at this point

    • Öffne das Gerät etwa um 10°.

    • Halte die Unterseite des Trackpads fest und drücke gleichzeitig auf die Seite des Trackpads nahe am Logic Board, um es so vom oberen Gehäuse zu befreien.

    • Entferne das Trackpad vom Gerät.

Followed the instructions in order to adjust the sensitivity of the trackpad, nonetheless the screw I found was a T6, not a T5. But in any case, excellent guide, thank you!

andresaldana - Antwort

any chance this part is the same for a mid 2012 11” ?

Lane Jasper - Antwort

If you click the part at the top of the guide, you can see the compatibility listed, unfortunately they’re not the same, but we do have the 11” trackpad here. And the accompanying guide lives here!
