    I opened up my 2015 13 inch rMBP this morning to discover that my trackpad no longer "clicks". By this I mean when I put downwards pressure on the trackpad it is no longer physically moving and therefore not clicking the mouse. Luckily I always have it set to 'tap to click' so that way still works, however the trackpad no longer makes an actual sound when pressed on, no matter how hard or deep I press. Obviously this also means that I can't use any Force Click actions.

    I haven't spilled anything on it or dropped it at all, so I can't think why this has it has suddenly stopped working. Is this issue fixable myself or do I need to take it into an Apple Store to repair?

    Oh, first I thought you had a swollen battery.
    But then I saw you had a retina Pro with a Force Touch trackpad, so ... take it to Apple.

    I would do a PRAM and SMC reset first before I did anything else.

    Also try to boot to the Internet Recovery disk (Apple + R) Maybe its a "driver" issue and the Net Recovery disk should use "fresh" ones while in that disk. Then if it works you'll know its the OS and not your MBP.

    It's not supposed to physically move since the force touch trackpad. It's working fine. If you disable "tap to click" you will feel the clicking again.

    You can still use force click. In your trackpad settings enable "Force click and haptic feedback".
