Can I replace just the keyboard?

My MBPro A1286 Intel Core Duo Model 5,1 got wet last weekend. Now several keys don't work. I did some research and found out that most parts providers offer only replacing the top case along with the keyboard. (pretty expensive!) Then I found this site Link text that offers Just the keyboard (much better, money-wise) Seems to good to be true...Is this doable? and how come you don't have a guide here for this procedure? (did a search with my model number and the closest I got was to a top case replacement guide) Thank you!

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes, you can replace just the keyboard.

You can use this guide as an example:

Replacing keyboard on MacBook Pro 15" (Mid 2010)

The guide is for a different model but should be very similar.
