E540, syrup spilled on the trackpad

Hey Everyone,

I have accidentally spilled pinaple syrup on my keyboard and trackpad. And as I've found lots of info on cleaning the keyboard, i didn't find anything on cleaning the trackpad.


As all the trackpad is one big button, now when i push it, it sticks with its bottom to the laptop case and releases only after some time.


Did anyone have a similar experience? Could you suggest any way of cleaning it? I though, since this part should be waterproof too, I could pour a few drops of ethanol under the key, what do you think?


Thanks for your help

You will need to take it apart and clean each part individually. As for the keyboard goes, save yourself the time and order a new keyboard to replace the sticky one.

Use a cleaning agent to clean the rest...


And make sure to let it dry long enough afterwards.
