kore !, Ouch, that is a bummer! It’s almost impossible to clean off all the glue successfully on those machines, and the keyboard isn’t really replaceable. You’ll need to replace the upper case which includes the keyboard.

Luckily, iFixit has the part in stock (in the US store). I checked the TouchBar version. If you purchase a replacement part, and follow the guides here on the site, you should be able to swap it out and get your MacBook back.

Note! The part is not cheap by any means, but then neither was the device itself.
