    Hello All,

    I just got back from the Apple Store.
    Last week, my trackpad was refusing to click on my 13" Pro. They replaced the trackpad, and when i got the notebook back it worked perfectly.
    Just as I picked it up to walk out, I noticed that the clutch cover (the black plastic piece that covers the hinges between the bottom portion and screen) was really loose, and I could slide it back and fourth with my finger.
    I let the genius know, he said he'd take care of it and to come back when I was called. After I came back to pick it up, it was still happening. I gave up and left...
    My question is, does this affect use, I.E. will it end up cutting the display cables in the long run? I had an old HP notebook that did this...
    Should I take it back AGAIN to get repaired?

    Odd, they shouldn't have had to remove the clutch cover to do anything to the trackpad. Having a loose clutch cover shouldn't cause a problem, the cables come out the end and can't really be pinched. However if it going to annoy you it would probably be best to get it sorted sooner rather than later.
