The trackpad was randomly clicking when moving the mouse. I replaced the trackpad which solved the problem.

Opening the mac was not too difficult. However, unplugging the connector was tricky.

Trackpad stopped clicking got spongy when pushing down unlike before. Started to get stuck when dragging things.

Man, those are some tiny screws, glad I don't have Andre the Giant hands. Took me a few tries to get the positioning of the set screw just right but no problems, no extra parts/screws, and . . .

My trackpad started randomly clicking, selecting everything, moving things around... very bad for a developer!

crwdns2853024:0crwdne2853024:0

It was a cinch. 20 minutes tops.

Spend a little time with that last adjustment screw before putting everything back together so you don't have to open it all again.

Common problem with this generation of Macs: the trackad sometimes "clicks by itself"

The repair was super-simple but the excellent guide was still nice to have for safety.

crwdns2853025:0crwdne2853025:0

By using the guides anyone can repair almost anything! However, you should read all text carefully!

Basically the trackpad that I had was registering click events when I wasn't clicking (yes, I had, and always have had, tap to click disabled). So as you can imagine, trying to open new tabs? #nope, trying to move a window? #hahanope
