    im in the process of cleaning the keys and the keyboard plate now but i cant open the back. coffee seeped into the transparent part at the bottom and i cant unscrew the two screws next to the PCB, they are physically impossible to remove but the screws on the PCB are easily removed. are these screws fixed (ie unscrewable)? is there any trick to get the back off?

    thanks! but i want to know how to get these two screws out... the ones next to the PCB (not on the PCB) underneath the keyboard plate so i can take the backing off.

    heres a pic with an arrow i put on to show one of the screws. its from this guide which says nothing about the screws.
