    So I just dropped a bit of sauce over my keyboard and now the S, the X and the left cmd key don't work :(. I took the keys off but its impossible to clean below the rubber. Advice? How muche does an old MBP keyboard cost?

    Well I can't diassemble it now. I don't think the sauce penetrated the machine. Mean wxhile the x key apparently works but has an erratic behaviour.

    You got a liquid on a computer... and you're still using it.

    Go back and read it again. What do you mean you can't take it apart?

    No tools and it was like 3 - 5 grams of liquid (or less).

    The MBP is now resting upside-down with the lid open, the keys off and without battery. That's all I can do for now I think :(.
