Change single key - What is the key type

Hello,

I have a MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 and I would like to know what is the key type of this keyboard, because I am thinking of changing some keys from its keyboard (It has a US layout and I would like to change some keys to Portuguese Layout). I've read on the internet that there are small differences in the hinge mechanism, as there are many types of key/hinge (like this website explains: http://www.thebookyard.com/apple_keycaps...)

I would like to know what is the key type in this specific model (in order for me to buy individual keys) and if I should be able to replace them myself.

Thanks in advance,

trocLas

The 2013 retina model comes in 2 versions, I found out when i had to replace mine, I did not purchase from that link you gave but we did purchase them from replacementlaptopkeys.com, the direct link for the keys is apple retina laptop key

We ended pulling off one key and compare and the keys they sent to us was a perfect fit, and install could not be easier, it took seconds.

Thanks for your help! Those keys you mentioned are for replacing US keys. Does anybody know where can I find similar keys but for replacing Portuguese keys (that have the "ç", "~", etc).
