    Hi guys,
    I noticed this problem few moths ago and just now got to it to ask you... It's really annoying especially at night, that in the middle of space bar there's no backlit coming trough and on the side's there is.

    Is it possible to replace it? Or what should I do to make it how it's been from brand new?

    Thanks...

    What exact MBP do you have?

    I have the same phenomenon, but I can typically see the space bar with the available backlight.

    I have no trouble seeing it (the spacebar), even with 1/15 baclit, but as I said, I'm usually on 15/15 at night and it stands out perfectly that that place is not backlighted, because I guess from typing it started to curve?

    Chill. It's the same for my 2012 MBP too. I got used to the keyboard so I don't look at the keyboard that often, and I think you should relax and use your MBP too.
