To continue from here to replace keyboard [in an early 2015, MacBook Pro retina 13”, remove I/O board following the iFixit guide for the I/O board replacement. A Youtube video (here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX2phuS4...) shows how to remove the keyboard, pulling some rivets as well. Importantly, the video shows how to remove the remaining rivets.
I bought the replacement keyboard on eBay. Prior, I had purchased a “Pardsey” branded keyboard from Amazon that came with a backlight. Also keyboard screws recommended. The “Pardsey” keyboard, said to work with 2015s did not fit. I used their backlight and screws. Other helpful videos are on Youtube as well.
To my surprise, as per the Youtube video, excellent screw holes for the tiny keyboard screws are there once the rivets are removed.
Also very difficult, because there is so little room to wriggle the ribbon cable, horizontally and backward. The photos do not offer a solution. The points I used are white (at least not black) points on the both, outer edges, and I was able to push there with the tip of the spudger.
This tiny connector was difficult for me, and I hope I have not damaged it. Same design as some connectors already removed. A tiny, plastic front latch is lifted up, causing release. You grab the ribbon cable and pull it back horizontally, and to my surprise, this is end is just one tiny flat metal end, no multiple wire connectors that mate on the male end of the ribbon cable.
In my 2015 retina MacBook Pro 13”: I saw as shown the piece of black plastic tape. One peels this off as shown, using the same tweezers shown, or something else. The tweezers shown work well to lift the stainless steel clip, again as shown. But I add here that the points of the ribbon cable to grab and pull horizontally back are not optimal, as shown. You do not have to grab the ribbon. There are two points where the wire clip attaches to the connector that work well as places to grab with the tweezers shown. Hope this is clear
Very helpful tip from Tony.
