    Hi I need to replace the keyboard on my Macbook Pro due to a broken (9) key. Is there a way to find a keyboard replacement part number from the model number? The model number is A1226. I bought this item from eBay, but obviously it's out of warranty now - and the guy who I have who says he can replace the keyboard will only do it if I give him a part number, or if I buy the keyboard myself first.

    If I gave him the Macbook and waited for him to take it apart, it would mean being without my computer for a week - and I just can't afford to do that. It might only take a day or two if he can have the keyboard in hand first though.

    It's also a UK branded keyboard if this is any help...

    just take it to the genius bar. i have seen Apple geniuses replace a broken key in the past even if the computer is out of warranty since they usually have spares in the backroom.

    No harm trying your luck.

    I live in quite a small remote town in the UK, so I doubt there's anything like that near me. I'm just using a small local repair guy. The keyboard could do with replacing, as some of the other keys are a bit heavy and unresponsive too.
