How To Remove And Clean Macbook Pro Keyboard Keys




What do you think about this video?

BaIISackPotato: myspacebarisnowbroken freakyou

Siren Hound: when he demonstrated the 5 key, I pressed 5 and missed half the video :P

szymon krzeminski: HELP WHERE'S THE RECRUIT KEY

Suryes N: Does 13" and 15" macbook pro has same key size and and fringe mechanism.? help me out.

dtsteph13: how long was it until the Mac actually stopped working? I spilled water on every single key and it works fine, I am just wondering when you think it will actually stop working. I'm assuming it will. I don't imagine there was no water damage. thanks 

Brenton Alloway: Too long, didn't watch. Will look at other google research results

StarTropicsKing .: Thank you so much!! My gf accidentally spilled my pop all over the top half of my laptop keyboard! I'm so glad that Apple manufactures the keyboard so tightly so it won't short out so easily. Once you explained how to take the keys off I figured it out from there. Keys still aren't perfect but they aren't sticky anymore!

Dean Devos: this works for a few hours then they get sticky again.. help??

Andrew Keener: Perhaps you might wish to invest in a tripod or something.

Guilherme Góis: how do you take the enter key off?

marquinator92: Thank you so much for posting this video! Spilled Sprite all over my keys last night and this morning 4 of them were sticking and clicking. I was terrified of pulling the keys off since they just didn't pop off easily on the first try like PC's normally do. You just saved me an expensive trip to the Apple Store!

Haley Brigger: I was having so much trouble fixing my sticky spacebar! Thanks so much for this video xD

Alfie Liu: oh my god... you have no idea how many hours i have spent taking apart all my keys and cleaning them because of this video... but its worth it! thanks for the vid

Safdar Hussain: i won't do it its very risky as i spent 2000$ to buy my mac 

Valentin Foveau: I have clean my space bar 3 times already and almost broke it but it's still sticky ... a solution ?

Damo: Thank you very much for the very detailed and comprehensive video. You have saved my day! Well done! Keep up with the good work! :)

Scott Thomas: Tim, Great video - thanks for your help. I had a different model Macbook, but effectively worked the same. I couldn't have done it without your video.

Amy: Thank you - worked great!

A.W.O.L: Thanks for the vid, I subscribed right away! :)

jiaming lin: Root beer is code word for seman right? I have root beer all over mine too.

Scott McCord: Just did this with three keys on my mbp retina after an unfortunate incident involving some orange juice. Worked great, thanks!

daryto86: thank you so much!! this video help me a lot!!. now all my keyboard works great!!..:)

WeGoSee: Thanks so much! My Z and X stopped working - popped them off and cleaned and back working again. Putting them back on was trickier - but following your video helped a great deal. Thanks!

Rachel D. Stalcup: This was super helpful. Thank you very much.

Nick Rankin: How can I make sure that nothing got into the charging port so that I don't plug it in and charge it and it doesn't fry? I spilt liquid on the left hand side of my keyboard and cleaned the keys like you said. It worked perfect! I'm just scared to charge it because I don't want anything to happen! Thanks so much!

Anonymus: Great job dude. Really appreciate your help. 

bonita ryan: To those who ruined their macs, user error. Content aside, Tims voice and pacing are great, should do DIY videos as a career!

james Allen: very helpful video thank u very much

MInecraftMushrooms Triop: While removing the spacebar i paused the video several million times

Ho Sun Lee: Thanks for making this, I was able to get everything into place after I spilled tea on my keyboard!

Valentin Foveau: thank you sir !

thesqueedler: Hi Tim, just wanted to thank you for the detailed description. I spilled maple syrup on my keyboard, including the space bar, and I was able to get it fixed. By the way for other viewers, I highly recommend using strong reading glasses & good lighting for this work. Also a plastic "spudger" to pry off the keys (you can get them at iFixit). I also used damp cotton swabs and an old toothbrush - carefully -to help clean the parts and underneath.

Aritro Ghosh: i had few issues with my spacebar(it sounded like kinda squeaky) but ur video worked like a charm :)

Emily Nathan: thank you so much this video really helped me!

Antoine Lierville: Thanks man !

Skok Na Bok: Will I lose the warranty if I take off?

Norris Mantooth: I dropped a particle of crisp / chips into my 5 key as well. 555555. Great tutorial, helpful vid. Thanks!

Craig Clifford: great! fixed my mac right up. Thanks!

Abdo Sowaygh: really helpful, thank you for the great video. 

dmitri senda: my late my mother ran her steam heat for years and mildew got on all her papers. i didn't know it and i had put paperwork in the bag i carry my ipad & my macbook in. now both smell of mildew. i was thinking of using denatured alcohol to kill it. any ideas would be appreciatd. ive had macbook for 2 weeks, ipad since april though ipad doesn't smell as bad

Maafu Palu: Thanks

Andrew Ahmadi: Awesome, just what i needed to see after spilling cranberry & vodka on my rmbp! Thanks!

Jason Zheng: MWAHAHAHAHAHAH. It worked! My spacebar is now perfectly new :)))

Christiano Citrangulo: How did you save your hardware, man?

Terrance MacGregor: Awesome job Tim. Your video saved me a ton of time. Thanks for posting.

FWgoatfilms: I can't figure out how to put the "fn" and the "option" key back on everything i try isn't working. please help!

BowTies: omgahh thanks my space was sticking and not working consistently but now it works like a dream wooot!!!

Michelle Coe: You Saved Me A Ton Of Aggravation With My Left Shift Key not Sticking Anymore!! Thank You!!! (Tea w/ honey on 4 hours of sleep = clumsy girl)
