1. Place the top case (keyboard side down) on a clean surface.
Replacement Note: The folds in the trackpad cable and the areas that adhere to the top case should match the computer you are servicing; however, the cable on your computer might be slightly shorter.
2. Use a black stick to start to peel up the clear strip of tape.
5. Caution: The trackpad cable locking lever at the top of the connector is fragile. Use a black stick to carefully tilt up the lever until it is vertical (as shown by the detailed image on right). Replacement Note: When locking the trackpad cable lever, make sure it is completely closed, as shown by the detailed image on left below.
8. Install the replacement trackpad cable, and reassemble and test the computer.
