    i just spilled some soya sauce over my return key (on my new 13" MBA) and the malfunctioning key(s) really annoys me.
    On old MacBook it was possible it was possible to pop these key off and on, but these are glued to the computer (the apple support told me).
    So I called the Apple support who said that he couldn't help me.

    So how can i "clean under the keyboard"?
    Do you think it's possible to remove the bottom and then separate the keyboard clean? Any one got an idea?

    Go to and find the correct repair manual.
    It should at least get you close to what you need.

    From their site:

    The keyboard is integrated on the top case unfortunately. To get it fixed would require the top case replacement which is a pretty in depth repair.

    661-5735 is the apple part number for the top case.
