Removing Keys on aluminum Powerbook 15??? Please help!

Can anyone explain to me how to remove keys on a powerbook 15 aluminum? i spilled a few drops of gatorade on the computer the other night and now the spacebar is sticky .. i think removing it and cleaning underneath will do the trick, but i'm terrified to break the keys by prying them off ..

i've been searching the internet for about an hour and can't come up with anything .. if you can help, i'd really really appreciate it!!

In my experience on laptops they just pop off. Just make sure you do it very slow and easy. What I use is a small flat head screwdriver to pop if off. Just be careful no to break the scissor part of the keys

But, like, from which side should you start prying ? How should it pop off ? Where can we find instructions on how to do this ?
