    I noticed that my Trackpad is a little uneven on my macbook pro, and I don't think that this is something that apple would address, so i was wondering if apple would be able to tell if i removed my battery and checked on it myself.

    More specifically, would they be able to tell if i simply removed the battery?

    If you open it up, you'd see what he's talking about. You're allowed to fiddle with the RAM and HDD, but not the battery.

    ok, so they would definitely be able to tell then....regardless of the care you take to remove it?

    Id suggest taking it to a Apple Store and get it checked out.

    There is a sticker on the battery connected to the body.
    If the battery is removed, the sticker rips indicating you have made a Out-of-warranty modification onto your machine.

    The sticker is a special type that rips even how careful you are.
    You see those on SSDs and HDDs "Warranty void if removed".
    Similar thing.

    I would advise you to be honest if you decide to take it in. Not suggesting that you are trying to deceive Apple, just saying that it will be better for you to just come out with it rather than acting like you never touched it - if you do decide to open it, that is.

    I'm sure they will address an uneven trackpad though.

    What makes you think they wouldn't address the problem? I'm assuming it's still under warranty if you're worried about whether or not they'll be able to tell if you fiddle with the battery. Take it in to Apple, see what they say. Don't try to do it yourself.
