 Post subject: Clicker Woes

It's been a problem from the day I got this machine. I doubt Apple would be willing to authorize a free repair anyway.

Basically, the clicker doesn't click every time, and I want to decrease the gap so that it will honor the click&drags and double-clicks a little more faithfully. Trouble is, I don't know how to get the clicker off.

I've looked everywhere (I think) for a schematic indicating how the thing is connected. I don't want to try prying it up from the top unless I'm sure it can be removed that way, and I would like to avoid disassembling the whole machine just to get under the desktop. I purchased the powermedic.com take-apart manual but see no simple diagram for this there either, just major stuff.

Please help! Thx.

It isn't an easy procedure. Normally you'd just want to replace the entire trackpad. If you're intent on replacing just the button however, you might want to try removing the hard drive and the DVD drive. Then undo the two hex nuts on the trackpad button, and the button should work free. You may have to bend the rib frame a bit, and you risk breaking it, but it should be possible this way. Try at your own risk though.

Your Titanium parts list contains

Trackpad Casing & Trim (500, 667) and
Trackpad & Grey Trim Casing (400, 500).

Which is the one I would need? Thx.

It depends on your MHZ model. Check your MHZ speed, and the part you need will be the one that matches that number.
