No - nothing with user access. Sounds like liquid was spilled on the keyboard - either use the work around or replace the top case. Separate parts are not available - they come as one complete assembly.

Hey there, if you are good at dis-assembly, you may check the trackpad/keyboard ribbon cable. I had the same problem with a macbook pro.

Problem is, I haven't found somewhere that sells *just* that cable, so you may be looking at a few hundred dollars in parts for the whole top assembly.

Hope this helps!
