    Just brought a Macbook Pro 15" Unibody 2008, its trackpad works all well apart from clicking, for a click to register you need to push hard. Is there anyway I can fix this or is it a physical issue that cannot be fixed?

    It's certainly not a physical issue that cannot be fixed because I have that same laptop and the trackpad click works fine. If you don't want to take it to the Genius Bar at Apple, then I suggest you read up on how to take it apart, clean it and reinstall it properly or possibly replace it - has great step by step tutorials and videos on how to achieve that.

    Hopefully it's just dirty and not the battery expanding against the back of the track pad.

    Canada, eh!
    You could replace it or change the setting to 'tap to click' in System Preferences. I rarely use the physical click because I don't want to wear out my trackpad.
