Fixing my coffee blunder

by DMoebius

My Problem

It's always the second or third time you do something that it really bites you in the... behind. I spilled coffee on my keyboard for the third time in the five years I have owned my laptop and, after drying everything out as best I could, several keys no long functioned.

My Fix

This wasn't the first repair I've done using iFixit parts and guides so I knew going in it would be a snap. The guide was very useful, as usual.

My Advice

The ribbon cable for the keyboard itself was the only tricky part and it took some work to get it seated properly.
