Einleitung

Sometimes your keys may get sticky and impair your use of the laptop. So you may need to replace the keyboard. However, you should be careful when removing any parts from the laptop, as many parts are attached to other parts by wires. Applying too much force when removing components may damage these wires. Also, many of the connections are just melted plastic which means it may sound like you're breaking the device, but it's necessary to get the device open. Always use caution to avoid unnecessary damages as well.
