    replace just one key of my blackbook without disassembling the whole unit??

    my space bar is broken so i think i could buy one of the keyboards that are sold on ebay and replace the key by myself

    thanks :D

    mbpro keys can pop off but the way the macbook keyboard is made makes me believe it's not possible on them.

    MacBook keys also pop off...the keys just look different. If you can get to an Apple Store, they'll probably pry one off of a dead keyboard behind the counter and pop it on for you. They did for me on my PowerBook a couple of weeks ago.

    Is it possible too...

    ... have a more informative thread title? Yes.

    You can also replace the keys. It's easy, you can figure it out.

    Hopefully he got it back on as it was 3.5 year ago. If not, I bet he's quite mad :p
