What do you think about this video?

BaIISackPotato: myspacebarisnowbroken freakyou

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

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

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!

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!

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

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

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

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 !

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

Maafu Palu: Thanks
