my trackpad button on my 3 year old Macbook Pro is not working properly. The left hand side is permanently depressed and does not click. The right side works and of course I can also tap click on the trackpad itself so its not a total disaster yet.... but any ideas how I can fix it? Will I need to take my MBP apart?

By 'depressed' I mean 'sunken in', not 'sad', by the way.

The trackpad is integrated into the top case. I don't think you'll find any way to fix the issue, short of a new top case.
