    • 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.

    • 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.

I replaced the trackpad and the new one had a strange behave: the arrow moves, the multi-touch works, but was not possible to click and when the arrow passes on the dock it doesn't react at all, then I plugged in an external mouse and the behave was the same (in few words it was impossible to use the computer).

Now I putted back the old trackpad and I work with the external mouse.

Did someone experienced something similar?

Did you solve in some way?

Thank you in advance.

Are you sure you pushed the cable in all the way

Hello,

I also had a similar problem. I was told to try to reset the SMC in this way:

1. Attach the MagSafe power cord

2. Power off the MacBook Pro

3. Press the L-Shift/Control/Option and Power button at the same time and hold.

4. Release them all at the same time

5. Then power on the MacBook Pro

but didn't work for me. Any other suggestion?

Anyone have trouble with the trackpad acting wonky after installation? Clicking well, but the right 1/3 side does not track properly. Cursor will start to go all over the place or stop. Also installed an Anker replacement battery as well, took off the foot pads as recommended. Just trying to figure out if it's software or hardware. (i.e. did I get a faulty replacement trackpad.).

Thanks!

Thanks for this very precise step-by-step guide! Good old MBP works fine again.

Cost: Track pad from China € 26, ifixit screwdriver set € 25 - compared to the Apple shop's cost estimate a real big deal!
