Push the 3 tabs at the top of the keyboard in and down one at a time using a nylon spudger. Once the three tabs have been pushed in,  gently pry the top of the keyboard until it begins to hinge out of its slot. The keyboard is still attached by a cable. Be careful when removing not to damage the cable. Do not yank the keyboard out.

Push the two sides of the ribbon cable connector away from yourself. This will unseat the ribbon cable. Once the tabs are unseated, you can gently remove the ribbon cable by pulling it out of its slot. The keyboard can now be removed. To be on the safe side, it’s better to use a nylon spudger, rather than the metal spudger shown in the picture.
