Step-by-Step Keyboard Replacement Instructions

  • Press the five clips down with a pair of tweezers or a flat screw driver (number 1, 3 and 5 down, number 2 and 4 upwards). Now you can lift the keyboard.
  • Turn the keyboard and put in on the touchpad. Don't remove the keyboard fully, because the ribbon cable is still connected.
  • Use a flat screwdriver to open the cable lock. Now remove the ribbon cable carefully. Close the cable lock to avoid damage.
  • Now you can lift off the laptop keyboard.
