Here is a link to the service manual for your laptop.

Scroll to p.47 to see the necessary pre-requisites and then the procedure to remove the upper case.

As the keyboard is also integrated into the upper case you will have to replace the complete module. On p.60-62 it shows the upper case and also the numerous part numbers for the case. If you search online using just the part number only (it depends on your particular keyboard variant -country dependent), in the search box, nothing else, you will get results for suppliers of the part. The part number should also be printed on the part in your laptop. A quick search showed that the part is not cheap.

Hopefully this is of some help.
