Hi. After my trackpad “click” started failing (it wouldn’t physically feel like a click when pressed and it wouldn’t respond unless you pushed hard and in certain areas) I went through the whole above replacement process with a trackpad I bought off of Amazon. The new trackpad has a better click on the right hand side but the left hand side is not working still.
Could it be that the new trackpad I got also doesn’t work? The reviews on Amazon indicated that the trackpads from this seller sometimes also failed.
Or is there another problem? I noticed there are two black rubber pads (made of a thin foam) that are between the base of the trackpad and the body of the macbook frame, and that in my computer they are worn/frayed. Could this be the problem?
If anyone has any knowledge about this, or advice about how to go about with this repair and trying different things, I would appreciate your help.
