Samsung R60 plus laptop keyboard removal
Hi - It's relatively easy!
Close (but not latch) the lid.
Gently press each hinge cover at the rear of the unit where it meets the base unit (You'll see a joint in the plastic) and get a satisfying click as it lifts. Carefully open the unit almost flat (- careful!) and use a small rounded watchmaker's or preferably similar dimension plastic / wood implement to lift the hinge through the hinge recesses until the switch/indicator plate clicks out at each edge. Then gently use light pressure to remove the rest of the plate away from the keyboard top side. There is a lifting point above the keyboard between the Pause and Insert keys if you need to apply a little extra pressure. There are several moulded clip pieces along the front (keyboard edge of the plate). There are no screws or wired connectors underneath - so lift away. There are two screws underneath the case which hold the keyboard in one either side of the CD/DVD drive locating screw. Turn the machine back over and locate the three plastic lugs in th case at the lower edge of the keyboard. Located near CTRL, Spacebar centre and Down Cursor keys, gently press each one towards the front of the machine with a flat edged implement starting centrally at the same time carefully lifting the keyboard unit. There is a flat ribbon cable connected underneath don't tug it but manouver the keyboard so that you can release it properly.
Replacement is an exact reversal of the removal process - use gentle care and firmly placed pressure to click the various plastic lugs int place.
Now ... about that spilt milk in the keyboard .....!

Just need to remove the two screws on the rear marked KBD then turn the computer over and unclip the 7 tabs around the keyboard - 3 at the front and 2 either side, then carefully pull the keyboard up and towards you to release it at the back.
