Expert:  technicalcat replied 7 months ago.

Sorry, spent some time on this, and couldn't find any service manuals or even related models with information on keyboard. Will opt out to other experts.

I may be wrong but that front cover looks like it just pops out.

try putting a very small screw driver around the sides and see if it jiggles a little

it may have a catch somewhere. But more likely it just has little spring metal that hold against the sides to keep it in place
