Touchpad automatically depressing when chassis flexes

Basically what the title says. If the right lower corner of my laptop is off the edge of a table or not completely in my lap and the heel of my hand is pressing down on it just enough to flex the chassis, it automatically depresses the lower left corner of the touchpad and causes random clicks.
Has anybody else had this problem? It’s relatively minor, all things considered, but it IS a bit annoying. Is this a chassis issue, a touchpad issue, or both? Should I order a replacement touchpad just in case or can I fix this just by loosening/tightening the screws?


Is it rubbing against the case, so that when the case flexes, it flexes (depresses) with it?


This may very well be the case. I didn’t even realize there was a guide for this already. Thank you!
