Key came off while cleaning. How to replace?

My ,< key has come off completely. It doesn't look broken, it just looks like it popped off. It has a couple little plastic connectors of some kind under the key. I am lost on how to re-install this key. Any blown-up instruction pics or illustrations out there? Thanks

Hey there Randall, the inside of the key should have all the connectors required therefore you should be able to orientate it correctly above and just pop it back in place with some downward force. If this isnt working, try pulling up what may be left in the place where the key was. If you can get something out try reattaching that to the base of the key and then begin placement again. If unable to accomplish this then the plastic connectors have boken and it is time for a new keyboard. Nothing lasts forever. Good luck!

My laptop key popped out.


I think it would be better if you decide if you want to change your keyboard or not. If you decide that you want to change the keyboard and have it replace by yourself you can go to this site, check if the part is available or not and order it if ever.

Hope it helps.

My radio wont shut off and the door keeps dinging after key is removed

This is usually a case of a broken wire in the driver's side door sill, on the New Body Style 2004 ( not a lightning or Heritage ).

Pop the door sill cover up, and you are looking for a purple or blue w/ white stripe wire where 3 wires are spliced. The splice tape looks like hockey tape, so water can still get in.

Here are 2 pictures of the broken wire locations

Broken bey on computer keyboard

If the key base or the key support has actually broken you will have replace the keyboard, they are inexpensive on ebay...around 15-25 bucks. If the key just popped off, try to rock it back on its mount either from side to side or top to bottom, you will be able to hear and/or feel it pop back in its mount.

Key popped off

Can you please look underneath the key to determine if the plastic has been damaged/broken. If it is then you will need a new key, or possibly switch with another less used key, if you don't want to purchase a replacement.

The W key

there is usually a scisor hinge or rubber column spring.if this is undamaged you should just be able to push the key back on, however there are usually tiny pegs which clip into the key which tend to break off, if these are broken you may be able to order a replacement from the manufacturer, you can order a replacement keyboard (complete) either from the manufacturer or from a spares company
