Yes, the physical spring action of the button as well as the springs at the top of the trackpad that connect it to the unibody are adjustable and/or replaceable.

The other option is remove the hard disk and use a cheap USB adapter to read the old disk. I am not sure about a 2008 model, but more recent (2010) models use a SATA drive. I have done this to recover data from many dead Macs.
