HI Guys,

I could really do with your help. I just broke my Apple Wireless Keyboard I dropped it and the E key broke off with the bracket inside. I don't want my parents to find out they will go nuts! Here is a picture of the part I need:


Where can I get one from guys? I do not want to have to buy a whole new keyboard. At the moment I have the E key balancing on the keyboard
Or if one of you guys have one I am prepared to pay.

Let me know ASAP
QUOTE Thanks

See them on eBay all the time, but there may be places online to, UK or US? I'm guessing US?

Knowing Apple it'll have a number, but I would call it a key clip or something like that.

Aha, just looked on eBay here and key clip it is!

APPLE key clip keyboard hinge MACBOOK / PRO / AIR on eBay (end time 21-Mar-11 16:27:20 GMT)

Edit> Glue is not a good idea, it needs to move freely.
