Screw test ("dry run" without cover).  This is the alternate screw I took from the RH edge position of the bottom cover - thicker flange than the normal screw in the trackpad location.

Final installation with custom spacer washer under the screw head (holds cover down better with the alternate screw).

Hey @spiffy72 can you put the jigs and washers on thingaverse? Alternatively, could I arrange to purchase them from you since I don't have a 3D printer? Also, what epoxy did you use?

 

I have the same issue with my X1E Gen2 Trackpad screw and it causes the chassis to creak when I apply pressure to the left-side palm rest. Super annoying.

I can put them on thingiverse tomorrow if I have time (including the spacer washers, as I think there help tighten things up in combination with the longer screw). For now I have to pass on selling these to u but message me if u can't source them somewhere else. I used JB weld for the epoxy, I will double check what kind tomorrow too. I think it was the Marine style.

I haven't forgotten about this request.  I created the "thing" on thingiverse, but I still need to put together a better instruction sheet (PDF) to attach to it before I publish it.

 

Stay tuned.

OK - here is a link to the Thingiverse "thing" with my jigs/fixtures if anyone is interested...

 

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4882279

 

It is listed as a "work in progress", but these did work for me.  There is a detailed PDF attached among the other files with detailed instructions.  I just uploaded that item, so it may take a bit to show up (that site is always flakey).

 

Thanks and good luck.
