How to put a key back on?

I have the Mid 2009 MacBook Pro. I spilled a little bit of juice on my keyboard, and the enter key was sticky. I watched a few youtube videos on how to remove the key for cleaning, but when I actually pulled the key off, the white hinge part came off with the key. In the videos I watched, the white hinge part always stayed on the actual keyboard. I don't know how to get the white part and the key back on now. Thank you in advance.

The white scissor hinge will need to be carefully removed from the key and replaced back into the keyboard, and after that the key cap can be replaced. Taking time to study how it all fits together and being gentle with the parts will prevent damage to the clips.

Simply lay the key in the correct direction on the keyboard (Don't put it upside down; Upside down letters on a keyboard aren't fun)

Once the key is just laying in its socket, simply press the key down, as if you were typing. Don't push too hard though. If you hear a click, the key is back in its place.

Hope this helps.
