Anyone tried removing/replacing individual keys?

I have a client with a "sticky" spacebar. I am hesitant to remove the key for cleaning for fear of either breaking the key/assembly, or not being able to get the key back on properly. I've done this countless times on previous models, but give the uniqueness of this machine I thought it may be beneficial to ask first. Thanks!

No different than the others.

Apple so far has removable key caps (including the space bar) across all of their laptops so people can swap out the caps for a different language set.

Here's a good Youtube on how: How to remove and clean Macbook Pro keyboard keys
