For everyone who has the creaking/squeaking iBook trackpad area, I solved my issue. Yet again, my reliable index cards have fixed another gimpy aspect of my new iBook. If you take out the battery, you can access one side of the trackpad. Looking at it, it may be the metal pieces causing the friction, but I wasnt going to try to lubricate it. I stuck a very small piece of folded index card in between the contacting metal pieces and it solidified my trackpad area. Any non-metal material will work, and you dont have to disassemble anything. Before, if I tried to use my button it went more like, creeeeeakclick instead of click. I fixed most of my quality problems, all I have to do know if accept my dead pixel.
