How to clean the keyboard

I have spilled some Coca-Cola on my keyboard. I am trying to clean it so I removed the key caps. For some reason when I put back the key caps they do not spring back.

1. How do I remove also the butterfly mechanism? Can it be removed?

2. On the key "0" (zero) as you can see in the picture, because I used some compressed air there is some missing black plastic and now my LED is brighter than the others. How can I glue the plastic back. I have some E6000 glue available.

Hi Popescu,

The black plastic you were talking about is very delicate, and same thing happened to me, I removed my T key when I was cleaning it and the black plastic broke off, and when I removed the T key there were little hooks that I didn’t realise and those broke, so when I tried to put it back on, it wouldn’t click.

And yes my T key is brighter than the rest now unfortunately.

Also as you said before how you put the keys back on and they wouldn’t click could be because the hooks most likely have been damaged.

So for me when the T key didn’t click in and was loose, I went onto ebay and bought a new T Key and that did the trick, but the T is still brighter than the rest.
