Trackpad Refuses to Lift


I've tried to open my 2.2Ghz MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo in order to upgrade the hard drive, but I encountered a problem in opening it, and I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice.

Anyway, when I follow the steps iFixit so graciously supplies, I get to the part where I must pull up the trackpad piece, and that's where I get stuck. The left side of the piece is perfectly willing to come up, but once I get around the CD drive, the trackpad casing seems to be very firmly stuck to the bottom casing. I removed all of the screws and checked it over again to see if I missed something, but no dice. I'm scared to tear it off with strength because obviously, I don't want to damage it.

Perhaps I'm being too gentle with it. While pulling it up, I'm worried I'll bend it, so I'm being really careful.

I don't know if it helps at all, but my MacBook Pro was a refurbished one (I bought it refurbished from Apple), and I don't know if they'd add any additional epoxies or glues in the refurbishing process. I doubt it, because if they did, then the Geniuses wouldn't be able to get into it easily either.

Anyway, I just wanted to know if there was any solution to this stuck condition.



I was just too gentle. lol Had to take my MacBook Pro to get the free logic board replacement that Apple offers for the Santa Rosas. The genius apparently had no trouble getting in, now I can too with a little force. I was just worried I'd bend something.

This really sounds like you still have a screw holding it. The most commonly missed ones are the two torx screws by the RAM, the the two case screws inside of the battery compartment and the two on the back edge. Please go over the tear down again. There are 10 outside case screws. Four long bottom screws. The three screws holding the RAM door. The two torx screws, 2 inside battery housing screws. Also make sure you have removed the RAM. The case lifts up from the back by the screen. I wouldn't try forcing it.

I've been into this machine about ten times and I've missed screws on occasion.

Hope this helps.

Just for the record: The topcase is held by plastic clamps on the front which are a little bit stiff at first. I use a plastic spatula and apply some force with my thump through the battery compartement. Cracking noises are normal when the topcase releases.
