Responder a: Replacing 2015's top case (with only keyboard) with a 2014's top caseAll done, after 5 hours. Thanks for the answers and the help :) Got 2 issues: (1) Trackpad's haptic feedback stopped working after the disassembly and reassembly. The force touch works, recognizing pressure and etc, but the feedback doesn't; (2) Backlight is weaker and uneven. I'll ask for a new one on the store I bought the keyboard + backlight. I bought another backlight because I was afraid to make my original one unusable, and maybe I did. About the trackpad's haptic feedback: tried restart, shutdown and power on again, SMC reset. Nothing.
Responder a: Replacing 2015's top case (with only keyboard) with a 2014's top caseI live in Brazil, and unfortunately things here are way more expensive than in any other country, such as US. I've been using a generic Bluetooth Keyboard since I damaged my keyboard - 3 weeks ago - until I decide what to do, and I'm tired of it since I can't use my Macbook as it's designed for. So far, I think I only have 3 options: (1) Replacing only the keyboard myself - kind of afraid of doing it so; (2) Find a 2015 A1502's used and undamaged top case - which is hard around here; (3) Replacing the top case on an AASP - for around $727 USD. Regarding replacing only the keyboard myself, I'm kinda afraid because I still have a few doubts: (1) Do I need to take the batteries and trackpad off the top case to get to the keyboard?; (2) Do I need to replace the rivets with screws? I'm really afraid of leaving it unstable or unflat; (3) Are the 2014 and 2015 keyboards the same? Is there anything in particular I should pay attention before buying it and would it be a good idea to buy the backlight as well?
