    Hey I have a mid-2012 MBA 13"
    Anyone know where I can buy individual keys for the keyboard to replace? I kind of melted some of mine.
    Long story on how.

    Thanks!

    Haha, well long story short, I spilt chew spit on my keyboard AGAIN! and thought it'd be a smart idea to use a hair dryer on high heat to try to dry it out. Lets just say I melted some of my keys on the keyboard lol.

    It didn't smell for like 3 minutes then something started smelling like burnt hair.

    If you burned/melted keys, you probably damaged some of the keyboard wiring underneath. You'll probably need to replace the whole top assembly. Ouch.

    No the keys still work, i just need new keys on it. the f12 actually fell off the Power button Delete and F11 are just warped, I stopped in time before it did too much damage.
    In my defense I thought the macbook was fried.
