Do not try to pry the keyboard from the bottom. The keyboard is attached by clips on the left, top, and right side. Metal inserts on the bottom side lock the keyboard in place until they are slid up and out.

Be careful not to scratch or chip the computer when prying. If you have a plastic tool that is long enough to gain leverage, use that instead of a metal tool.

There are ribbons secured underneath so be careful not to pull the keyboard out too hard, breaking the connections to the ribbons.

Flip the laptop over so the keyboard is visible.

Insert the spudger under the left side of the keyboard.

Carefully raise the side of the keyboard and firmly pull the left corner of the keyboard until it pops up.

Run your fingers under the edges of the keyboard along the top edge of the keyboard, from the top left to the top right, to separate it from the remaining clips.

Carefully slide the keyboard up toward the screen and out of the case.
