    Hello, I was just wondering if anyone has had an issue similar to this. The palm rest on my MacBook, specifically the right side, makes a cracking sound when I rest my palm on it and also when I lift my palm. I am always careful with my MacBook, and I haven't dropped it or done any physical damage to it, but I just noticed this issue today. Perhaps this is covered by the standard AppleCare warranty?

    Have you tried removing and replacing the battery cover? It may not be seated properly.

    I agree with the poster above.. the same thing happens to me and it's because of my crooked battery cover. No matter how I've bent the tabs or tried to fix it, it won't go away. Hoping that I'll be able to get a new one...

    That did the trick! I must have bumped the cover when moving it. Thanks all, this saved me a trip to the Apple Store. :eek:
