Another liquid damage Macbook for keyboard replacement we have received this week was this A1534 Macbook.

The customer tried to clean the keyboard by spraying a cleaner to the keyboard and wiping it off. But these new butterfly design keyboards are so thin and fragile, that a little drop of water is enough to render some keys unuseful.

We wanted to see how intense the damage is, so we took it apart and start inspecting.

Apparently keyboard’s backlight cover did excellent work in stopping the liquid entering the electronics inside. There was no liquid inside the machine.

Removing this keyboard is much easier than pre-2016 Macbooks. Although it requires 3 types of screwdrivers, which is typical for Apple.
