Fixing Keys on Wireless Keyboard

The caps lock key from my keyboard popped out accidentally and on trying to put it back I may have broken the small plastic which comes in between the key and the base.

Is it possible to fix it otherwise or can I buy a separate key from apple store.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

E-bay is your best source for key parts (scissors, nipples & keys).

I have cut and rubber cemented or siliconed nipples (functions like springs or riser) under keys.

The Teflon scissors can also be replaced (it's finicky and there is a "right side up" or "wrong side up" configuration to them). What can not be replaced is the aluminum hinges (little raised tabs with holes for the moving scissors) If they break off you're pretty much done.

The metal arms (on certain large keys and space bar) need to be correctly placed for those keys to work smoothly.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

Thank you so much. I broke those teflon scissors I guess. I'm not so good around technology, everything seems to break in my usage.

Your answer was really very easy to understand. Once again, THANK YOU.
