  6. Lift the battery out of the upper case.
    • Lift the battery out of the upper case.

    • If you're installing a new battery, you should calibrate it after installation:

      • Charge it to 100%, and then keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Next, unplug and use it normally to drain the battery. When you see the low battery warning, save your work, and keep your laptop on until it goes to sleep due to low battery. Wait at least 5 hours, then charge your laptop uninterrupted to 100%.

      • If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new battery, you may need to reset your MacBook's SMC.

  10. If necessary, 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. Carefully push the trackpad connector and cable down through the slot cut into the upper case. It may be necessary to use a spudger to help get the trackpad connector past the edge of the logic board.

    • It may be necessary to use a spudger to help get the trackpad connector past the edge of the logic board.

    • Once the cable has been completely pulled through its slot in the upper case, pull the trackpad away from the outer edge of the upper case and remove it from the machine.

  11. If you are installing a replacement trackpad that didn't come with the attached flex cable, you'll need to use the cable from your old trackpad.
    • If you are installing a replacement trackpad that didn't come with the attached flex cable, you'll need to use the cable from your old trackpad.

      • To remove the flex cable from the old trackpad, first flip open the latch on the ZIF connector, opposite the cable. Then, apply a little heat from a hair dryer or iOpener to soften the adhesive securing the cable to the trackpad, and carefully peel off and remove the cable.

    • When installing your new trackpad, routing the cable through the upper case and past the logic board may be difficult. It is helpful to use the tip of a spudger to guide the connector past the logic board while pushing the cable through its slot in the upper case with your other hand.

  12. Next, reinstall the four 1.2 mm Phillips screws along the inner edge of the trackpad. Tighten the screws all the way, then back them out about 1/4 turn.

It went very well for me. The pram was reset when I rebooted -- the clock needed to be reset and the wifi passwords were forgotten. But the trackpad works great! Thank you!

Bought a new trackpad, installed it, fiddled with centering it, loosened the click adjuster screw and it would hardly click if I pressed real hard, just like the old trackpad. Problem solved by putting two 1/32" thick sticky pads under battery where the battery sits on the macbook frame near the lower bottom edge. The battery was new and not swollen but is was still too thick. Didn't need the new trackpad but now I have a spare.

The removal and installation went exactly as described, and the new trackpad worked correctly the first time. The toughest part - truly, not all that difficult - was manipulating the four screws that hold the trackpad in place. I don't think I've seen such small threaded fasteners since I went to a watch museum!

is it possible that if i screw the bolts too tight, it can result in the track pad not responding? I install a brand new one after the battery was swollen and cracked the original track pad but the new one isn't working either.

Is there any way that I can only get the ribbon cable for the trackpad?
