Schritt 1 — Upper Case ¶
Remove the four 1.2 mm Phillips screws highlighted in red.
Schritt 2 ¶
Carefully dislodge the edge of the trackpad closest to the keyboard from its recess in the upper case by pushing it away from the brackets attached to the upper case.
De-route the trackpad cable through its slot cut into the upper case.
Schritt 3 ¶
Pull the trackpad away from the outer edge of the upper case.
Remove the trackpad and set it aside.
Schritt 4 ¶
Use a T6 Torx screwdriver to loosely install the 1.1 mm set screw included with your new upper case into its tapped hole near the middle of the trackpad opening on your new upper case.
Schritt 5 ¶
Carefully insert the cable from your old trackpad through its slot cut into your new upper case.
Use one hand to hold the trackpad cable in place as you insert the two retaining tabs on the outer edge of the trackpad under the lip on the upper case.
Pull the trackpad cable as you seat the trackpad into its void in your new upper case.
Schritt 6 ¶
Insert a 1.2 mm Phillips screw into each of the outer holes drilled into the trackpad (two screws total).
Schritt 7 ¶
While continually trying to click your trackpad, gently tighten the T6 Torx set screw until the clicks return to their factory "feel."
Schritt 8 ¶
Next, flip your upper case over so the keyboard side is facing up.
Align the trackpad so it is centered in its hole cut into the upper case.
Schritt 9 ¶
Tighten the outer two screws along the inner edge of the trackpad and check the alignment of it on the outer side of the upper case.
If its alignment looks good, install the rest of the Phillips screws along the inner edge of the trackpad.
Before reassembling your machine, verify that the set screw is still installed in a position so the mouse will click correctly.
