    MacBook Trackpad Replacement

    Replacing a trackpad on a MacBook Pro requires more qualifications than a MacBook Air trackpad replacement

    The main difference between replacing the trackpad on a MacBook Pro and replacing the trackpad on a MacBook Air is the difficulty of the repair. The trackpad on a MacBook Pro is more difficult to replace because it is integrated into the top case of the laptop. This means that the top case needs to be removed in order to replace the trackpad. The trackpad on a MacBook is not integrated into the top case, so it is easier to remove and replace.

    Therefore the cost of the MacBook Air replacement and MacBook Pro replacement differs. Replacing the trackpad on a MacBook Pro is typically more expensive than replacing the trackpad on a MacBook Air. This is because the repair is more difficult and requires more specialized tools and knowledge. But don’t worry, our technicians are 10+ in the industry.

    The most common causes of failure of an Apple Mac trackpad

    The design of the Trackpad on modern MacBooks consists of the following key components:

    • a cable connected to the motherboard;
    • special fixing screws;
    • the TouchPad itself.

    The trackpad is a very sensitive part of a laptop. Often it breaks as a result of serious mechanical damage, such as a fall from a height.

    The second common cause is water damage. Many users believe that liquid, once inside the case, damages the keyboard in the first place, since it has many holes. But Trackpad is also vulnerable. Much here depends on the type of liquid – the more microelements it contains, the more damage can be. For example, coffee with sugar or soda water is more of a threat than pure water.

    Sometimes the touchpad may not work properly due to a swollen battery, which can put pressure on the touchpad from the inside. In this case, the Macbook battery may need to be replaced.
