Turn the keyboard cover over so the bottom is facing up.  Manually remove the thin black covering that is attached to the bottom. Be patient, the thin black covering might be really stuck to the bottom.

Thanks for the dis-assembly guide. Justin, what did you have to do to fix the keys that were not working. I have on with a few keys not working, not even intermittently.
