Replacing "rubber cup" of a key on MacBook Pro 2016

So I got a double click problem and had to replace the "rubber part", which is under the hinge:

It seems like it won't hold in place anymore so the key does not work properly. Should it be glued? Did anybody tried to replace it?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

So I had to glue it for it to hold, but the butterfly part which I ordered was from 2017 model (mine is 2016) so the key was lower and didn't work properly in the corners. But it solved my double click problem and I been happy with it for a while.

Later I got same double click on another key and had to replace my keyboard under the warranty. I got new 2017 keyboard model and new battery as a nice bonus. 2017 model is much better so I would highly recommend anybody with such issue to replace the whole keyboard.

What kind of glue did you use?

by

Regular super glue. Key worked but the replacement was from 2017 model and it didn't fit properly on my 2016 so it was a bit lower than others. After a while I got double click problem on ANOTHER key so I went for a replacement keyboard under a warranty. Got 2017 model – no problems so far.
