    I think you're opening yourself up to a lot of headaches if you try to remove the keys. They're not designed to be removed and you risk breaking the retaining clips.

    When you mean remove the keyboard, do you meant to remove the keys itself?
    If so, you can pop it right off with you nails.

    Well if you pull it off in wrong direction or force it yeah.
    Just pry if out softly and you should be good.
