How to Change the Dead Keys of Your Mac book Without Difficulty

Nov 24th 2015 at 8:49 PM

If you are having a non-functioning key on the keyboard of the Macbook because it gets loose due to excess use. These keyboards are designed to facilitate the loose keys fitted back in place. You don't need to know much about computers in order to fix dead key and you can do it in shortest possible time. You just need a tweezer to do the job.

Check the model before you buy keys

Firstly you have to note the Macbook model you have. Then you have to find the store that sells individual keys but if you do not have time to visit a store you can search for the websites that come up with individual laptop keys. Check the keys from their inventory list so that you choose the keys that fit with your Macbook. Place an order to the site and once the key is delivered to you, you have to remove the dead keys. All the keys are snapped into right position, so just pull a key up to take it out. It will unsnap from the plunger. If the plunger is undamaged, but the key is missing, a different key will snap on over the plunger by pushing it down till it clicks.

Do it yourself

You have to insert the end of your tweezers underneath the dead key and softly snoop up to pop it out of place. Now place the key face-down on a table and make use of your tweezers to take away the plastic crux from the bottom of the key. Now fit the crux in the key section, making sure that the clips at the side of the hinge attach firmly to the metal tabs on the side of the key slot. Now just it the key back in the key slot and softly push down until the key retorts in position. The key should currently work devoid of any problems. If you do not have confidence to do it then you can contact with any engineer who provide supreme Mac service San Diego.


If you are having Wall street or Lombard model of Macbook then it’s quite economical to buy the whole keyboard than individual keys. Remember with the Wallstreet model you need to be very careful while changing the dead key otherwise it can break easily.
