Wine spill -- Laptop works but the keyboard doesn't

I spilled wine on my laptop keyboard, tried to clean up as much as I could and then let it dry for 3 days with the battery out.

As far as I can tell, everything on the laptop is working except the keyboard.

Can you tell me what I need to do to repair the broken keyboard? Do you think I need to replace the keyboard or the whole upper case?

thanks!!

Here's a video on cleaning your keyboard. If that doesn't work you will probably have to replace it. Ralph

Remember to tape down the motherboard connection with electrical tape. This cable coming loose is the most common problem on this repair.
