Keyboard removable from palm rest?
My keyboard broke for this device so I've just bought the keyboard only.
Link to what I bought: HERE
However I am unsure on my purchase since all online repair guides show replacement of keyboards attached to palm rest for this device.
Link to what every video shows: HERE
I just want to know if it is possible to remove the keyboard from the palm rest, and if so, are there any guides / resources for doing so? All I see are the "palm with keyboard" ones. Thanks!
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
Do you mind posting some tips on how you did it? I took my dell 5379 to the local repair shop but he said I need the keyboard with the palmrest! What you post will help others too.

This is the last computer from Dell ..NEVER AGAIN! It is definitely done purposefully. I’m going crazy with first removing all the parts and then finding no way to remove the keyboard. I unintentionally broke a couple of those plastic locks and got scared. Put together everything just to discover that I should have removed all those plastic locks. I will buy some cheap soldering iron tomorrow and melt those locks. Mine is Dell Inspiron 15 5565 laptop though. Just putting it down here so that if anyone has the same computer, would know what to do to replace the stupid keyboard. Shame on Dell for the cheap shot, what a lowlife company :/

Hi! I replaced my keyboard (Dell 7359 model) with the entire plastic (palm rest). I found it on Aliexpress for 38 euros. The keyboard itself is fixed with melted plastic and is not easy to change, which is a stupid engineering choice. Otherwise it would cost about 15 euros to change.
