How do you put it back?

There are 3 pieces of plastic under the key and 1 piece of metal. When I removed the key the plastic around the pressure pad remained in place as did a small piece hinging on the back of the key. I can get the metal clip to hook into place top and bottom and the key to click onto the plastic around the pressure pad, but I don't know what to do with the [-shaped plastic and the bottom part of the enter key does not respond.

Thanks,

Stephen

was v. helpful, but the twin plastic tails you see pointing up and the metal hooks are in different positions on mine. There appear to be different variants even for the same key type.

Just for ref, in mine, underneath the tail part of the key are 2 plastic components. The square one appears to hinge underneath the key cap. The [-shaped bit in fact goes this ] way around just outside metal hooks.

It appears fixed.

Basically you need to line it up exactly and push firmly.

Another option you have is to take it to an Apple store and they'll do it for free, they'll even replace a broken hinge- free of charge.

Sorry but you have to slide the key down a bit before clipping.

I've never had to do that

Unless you mean down as in up and down, not as in down as in towards you

I get how to put back the top half of the key, but not how or where the [-shaped piece of plastic goes in the bottom part of the key. I should mention that this return key is the US '9' shaped style, not a horizontal bar. The tail-part is the problem.
