Title:

Spacebar broken and possible solutions?

Text:

Hello,
To get to the point, essentially the spacebar on my late 2016 MacBook Pro went stiff and came off when I tried to fix it, attached is a photo of the key for context and I’m just wondering what exact solutions are there and is this fixable by just buying a new key or must the entire keyboard be replaced.

-If you’re wondering I was able to remove the butterfly mechanism from the key but it will not stay in the socket for the key.
