The track pad on this model of Chromebooks is known to stop "clicking" when compressed. This is due to the cover of the track pad rubbing against the Chromebook casing. Removing the cover and re-positioning it can solve this issue.

This works great. I do not have the iOpener heating pad, but I do have a heat gun. I set it to low setting and used a stainless spunger I had to pry off the plastic film that is silver in color and repositioned it. thank you for this as we have many touchpads sticking/hard to press

It works! Thanks for the great instructions and simple solution!

I did it, awkwardly using an excessively large gel heating pad to loosen the cover, and then prying it off.

I think the best advice in replacing the cover is to position the edge of the cover flush with the edge of the surrounding casing that is near the keyboard, leaving a slight but visible gap between the cover and the edge of the surrounding casing that is away from the keyboard. The latter gap ensures that the casing won't prevent the cover from moving and clicking the button underneath. (I don't think any gap at the edge near the keyboard is necessary, since the button that has to be clicked is far from that edge.)

I just realized you don't need to actually remove the plastic track pad cover. Once it is heated you can just push it towards the keys. That will free it up enough to "click" again. I also use a small piece of tape to hold it in place while the glue dries. I tape it so that it is putting pressure towards the keys.

Awesome! I need to do this to about 150 at my wifes school. A hair dryer is much better suited for this application. Lowest fan speed high heat works in <30 seconds. I was thinking I would have to do a full teardown to resolve this issue, but no, works like a charm.

I’ll start by saying that I did a quick and dirty fix that took maybe twenty seconds. I’ll agree that the iOpener, heat gun or hair dryer would be a better option if I had the luxury of the equipment and more time. My fix may not be permanent as well, but it got the trackpad to click ASAP.

I gently pressed an Exacto blade (the entire sharp edge) gently into the seam on the user side of the trackpad, close to the left corner. Once it was seated in the seam, I wiggled it a bit to open up the seam. Next, repeated it on the right side.

I’ll add that the only possible damage to the Chromebook would be scratching the plastic. There are metal tabs under the seam on each side. They are about 5/8” wide, starting 1/4” from the sides of the trackpad. Also there’s nothing else to damage underneath as well.
