Replacement keyboard still not working after liquid spill.

My daughter spilled blowing bubble solution all over the right side of my early 2011 MacBook Pro. I turned it off and upside down as soon as possible, and disassembled it late that night. Cleaned the keyboard and all plastic backings and reassembled. Everything worked fine except about 7-8 keys on the right side of the keyboard where the bubbles hit first.

I ordered the Chinese replacement keyboard from Amazon and installed it last night. It fit fine and works fine 'except the same 7-8 keys on the right. The replacement keyboard did not come with replacement plastic films. Is it possible that those could be effecting the keys not contacting properly?

Those films are where the circuits are printed and what shorted out. Some companies on eBay sell the complete replacement kits.

There are circuits for the keyboard besides the backlights on these films?
