How do I remove my macbook pro spacebar?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well,

My macbook pro was having some video related issues and i took it to the apple store. They replaced with a brand new computer... the only problem is this:

MY SPACEBAR SQUEAKS LIKE CRAZY!!!

Im having trouble staying focused while i type this. haha Anywhere I can get instructions to remove the spacebar so i can clean/lube the scissor hinges? I think im going to go nuts. haha

Thanks!

Take it back to the Apple store and demonstrate the squeaking for them. If they have a reasonable tech on staff, it should be easy enough to fix.

I had the exact same problems with mine. I took it to the local genius bar and they fixed it in 20 minutes in their back room.

5 Minutes: Find an unopened mac
5 Minutes: carefully open the box to the mac
5 Minutes: carefully swap the included keyboard with the squeaky one
5 Minutes: Drink beer

"Here you are sir, all fixed!"
