With this guide, you will be able to safely remove your old trackpad from your Toshiba CB35-C3300 Chromebook and replace it with your new trackpad.

The trackpad is a built-in mouse for your Chromebook that allows you to click on applications and browse in the operating system.

Your trackpad lifetime is based on how often it’s used. You may experience issues with your trackpad if you press too hard on it or none of your tapping is registering on your display.

It is important that you be careful when removing your trackpad since you also need to remove your battery to access the trackpad.
