    Hey guys and gals,

    I have had my SR MBP for about 3 months now and I have just noticed that whenever i press the space bar it squeaks, like it needs to be oiled or something. It is super annoying. Will Apple cover something like this (I have AppleCare) and can i bring it to my local Apple Store and have them just fix it there?

    Thanks!

    you could just remove the key a put a tiny bit of oil there. my brother poured icetea on his alu pbook keyboard, it got sticky and i removed and clean all the keys, it's not hard if you are carefull.
