    The battery may be old and starting to swell, and if so, it presses up against the trackpad mechanism, making it harder to click.

    My mid-2012 has gotten harder to click, too, and the battery monitor also suggests getting the battery serviced. I may get it done one of these days soon, whether I try it myself or take it to an Apple Store.

    This is exactly what happened in my 2011 MBP. I replaced the battery and the clicker started to work normally again.

    my mbp is only 1 year old, 250 battery cycles and battery health app shows that its stil good to go
    also the thing is, the problem only happened after i closed the lid / i charge it, after that, no matter how long i use it for , the click just works properly
