While I VERY MUCH appreciate this tutorial, and it helped me with some of the keyboard change, it misses several steps after the last one. After the keyboard assembly is lifted out, you still can’t get at the keyboard. There is a metal tray that holds it in place, and tape all over the place. The tape needs to be peeled back, and the metal tray needs to be removed by snapping all of the plastic rivets as carefully as possible. The new keyboard can then be placed, but ensure that all of the plastic alignment pins are correctly poking through the keyboard. Mine was missing some and I had to use a 1/8” drill bit and actually drill the holes through the keyboard where they were missing. NOW you simply reverse the procedure.

Cheers,

Stephen
