Possible to replace trackpad w/o replacing palmrest?
Is it possible to replace the trackpad in the Satellite C850 without swapping out the entire palmrest assembly with another that already has a trackpad preattached ? I have purchased a new palmrest online but upon inspecting it, have discovered that it has NO trackpad, just a flat rectangular depressed area of black plastic. I would have no problem with taking the trackpad off of my existing palmrest and putting it on the new palmrest but it appears to be glued or somehow fused to in place. Is there a reliable procedure for detaching/reattaching these trackpads or is it necessary to obtain the palmrest with trackpad already in place as a single assembly ? It looks to me as though I would destroy my existing trackpad if I attempted to pry it off my old palmrest !
