Remove and replace space bar key on Asus N53Jq laptop keyboard

Remove and replace space bar key on Asus N53Jq laptop keyboard

This is based on my experimentation, be careful not to damage your keyboard! I wouldn’t try this on a computer you rely on in case you can’t get the space bar working again. It might be useful for repair or cleaning on an old computer however.

How to remove and replace the space bar key on an Asus laptop, e.g. for cleaning underneath it:

  1. Lever off the space bar key, I used some tweezers but any thin bit of metal like a key should work
  2. Clean off underneath key

Note that there is a central button under the space bar which senses the key being depressed, on the side of which are two square levers which the key snaps into. On the space bar itself there are two thin metal wires, one slightly narrower than the other, that slot into two small metal holes on each side under the key.

  1. Gently pull out the wires on the space bar, orient the key correctly and slot the inner wire into the corresponding guide hole on both sides.

  2. Using a small tool like a tweezer if necessary, align the outer wire with the outer guide hole and gently insert the wire by lowering the key. Take care not to remove the inner wire from its guide hole.

  3. Once both wires are in the keys, press down the key until it clicks into place.

    Great view of your fingers. Too bad nobody can see what you did to get it out.

    Last time I tried to remove some keys to clean them, it went badly. Very badly. But now, of course, the spacebar's sticky and needs cleaned. Perfect.
