This is a great step-by-step walk-through. I went into replace a keyboard with all the wrong tools with me and I found out the client ordered the wrong keyboard thankfully no liquid damage inside. I found a few steps that were not required unless you were doing a parts swap to another system. I managed to instead clean out the keys without breaking the key caps and somehow the wrong keyboard had the right donor parts to fix the arrow key.

Can I really say I completed this when I ended up not replacing the keyboard?

FYI keep your liquids away from your computer!

I do have to say this system is pretty serviceable, cough if the manufacturer has parts.
