Wine soaked keyboard

by tkenneymd

My Problem

A tragic holiday accident led to a glass of wine being spilt on my MacBook Air's keyboard. Not only a sad loss in that it was an excellent glass of wine, but the right side of my keyboard stopped functioning.

My Fix

Repair went very well. However the top case part supplied appears to have three of the case closure inserts stripped out. The two on the hinge side corners and the one above the airport card. Any suggestions on how to deal with this would be appreciated.

My Advice

A couple of steps were missing from the guide on removal of the fan.
