The keyboard is secured with screws labeled KB, which are easy to dispatch. However, plastic clips also need to be unlatched.

In popping these clips I broke one of them. This is likely to make the keyboard a bit floppier on reassembly, which is a shame. More screws or at least stronger plastic brackets would be preferred here.

The expected cables under the keyboard are long enough to open the keyboard, but some stretch a little alarmingly. That said, the cables disconnect easily, making the procedure painless.

The keyboard assembly comes out easily.

The pointer board is glued fairly stubbornly to the keyboard, but once it is freed, it can be independently replaced. The rubber pointer itself pops out on the other side of the keyboard making for easy replacement.
