Attaching PowerBook buttons

Anyone have a clue of how to attach keyboard buttons on a PowerBook G4 (latest version)? One of my keys fell off for some reason and I can't get it back..

If you're anywhere near an Apple Store, I'm sure they'd be happy to fix it for you if you're having trouble with it.

I had to do this once and it is indeed rather tricky. I believe there is a little bar the has to clip into two little clips on each side and basically I aimed the best I could got in on there and pushed down and it clipped right in. It did take a few tries though.
