\015\0121. On your base unit, you will find this plastic piece below. Where I have marked a X, you will find 2 screws which need to be removed.
\015\0123. After you have removed these two screws, open the cover and lift the cover gently upwards. Removing it from unit.

\015\0124. Remove the 3 screws and carefully lift the keyboard upward at the screw points.
\015\0125. Once the keyboard is fairly loose, fold it over and allow it to lay on the armrest.
\015\0126. At this point, you will see the Ribbon cable where the Keyboard makes its connection.
\015\012Carefully lift the compression flange upward and remove the cable.
\015\012
\015\012Enjoy your new keyboard, invest in a cover, as once you have leaked any wet material past the keyboard, its all over.
