Macbook Air keyboard replacement possible ?
I have a A1369 macbook air which has a faulty keyboard - rather than buy a complete top case at a cost of $280! I've found a top case with working keyboard but someone has destroyed the aluminum.
Is it possible to swap the keyboard only? - I removed all the screws from the outer edge of the keyboard, but it looks like the keyboards inner is secured with some kind of plastic clip in between the keys ?
Anyone know how apple put these things together

MacBook Air Keyboard Replacement possible
The other rivets (there is a lot of them approximately 50) must be removed in-order to replace a new keyboard. It is time consuming and no tools are available commercially to take out the rivet. You have to improvise.
Re-assembly of the keyboard is easy once the rivets are removed.
Let me know if the info is helpful.
