MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2012 Battery
You do not need to glue the battery back together. I've opened mine twice now and the battery works as normal without it being glued down ridiculously tight like it was the first time.
Yup, that did it. Looks like the alcohol method didn't repair my old trackpad it must have been too far gone to fix. All good to go even though 2 of the screws holding the trackpad in place were stripped. Took an extra hour trying to figure out how to get them out so I could swap out the trackpad. Thanks
The trackpad is very erratic and will go all over the screen and click on apps even though I am not touching it. It will even open/close the launchpad along with folders/apps if the mouse happens to move across the screen and click at that time. The same will happen if I use a USB mouse. It doesn't happen every time I start up but will eventually start getting worse a few minutes into use. I used the 91% alcohol method to soak the trackpad and clean around the casing inside to clear out the gunk. Thanks
I tried this for my trackpad, cleaned a bunch of gunk out and the mouse is still shaky. Even with a USB mouse plugged in it scatters. Is there anything else I can do or does anyone have ideas on the problem? Thanks
