Hi

As far as I know you could probably use any small screws

HOWEVER…

I don’t think this gen MacBook airs keyboard can be replaced easily as its riveted in place

This takes a lot of time and patience as it’s quite hard to remove but once you have it out you just put the new screws where the rivets went

If you need any help please ask

Thanks:-)

Hi

Here’s a youtube video on doing it

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=W1Purem1NF...

(The keyboard bit starts at 4mins)

This video isn’t for your model but it’s the same across most models

The screwdriver you will need is a Philips 000(ph000)

Just as in the video you need to pull the keyboard out with some force

Make sure you apply tape and wear safety glasses as those rivets will fly everywhere

If you need any help along the way please let me know:-)

Thanks:-)
