Title
Repairing Apple Wireless Keyboard without destroying it.
Introduction
I had an Apple Wireless keyboard come in with two keys non-functioning. This was due to damage from a spill.
It is very difficult to disassemble this keyboard without destroying it because there is only one screen - holding in the logic board. Everything else is glued and welded shut. But there is a way to get in and repair it so that it can be re-assembled with no signs on the outside.

Summary
An Apple keyboard with non-functioning keys may be due to damaged traces on the two thin sheets of plastic inside, called the membrane. This is easily repairable provided you can get to it; this guide will tell you how without defacing your keyboard.
