I broke off a key on my Macbook pro. The F key snapped off

Resolved Question:

I broke off a key on my Macbook pro. The F key snapped off and the plastic clip-things underneath broke in half, so I can't just put it back on myself. I'm not sure if I need to send it in, or go to a mac store, or if I can fix it myself with some kind of glue. What should I do?

Hi,

The best thing is to take it to the store and have them replace the keyboard.

I am not aware of any parts available for those, so unless you want to try to glue it, this may be your best bet.

Or, you can try eBay and look for someone selling keyboard parts and maybe they can get you fixed up with a replacement fastener that your cap will snap back onto.
