Z580 ideapad: Are keys removable?

I accidentally spilled a little bit of soda on my keyboard a few days ago, and now I've got some lovely sticky keys that are driving me bonkers. 


I know in most keyboard, you can just pull keys out, then click them back in after cleaning them. But I have no idea on this model, because I am aware that sometimes keys cannot be put back on some keyboards. So before I start pulling away, I want to make sure.


I have looked all over the place and cannot find a simple answer. - - I just need a yes/no.

Re: Z580 ideapad: Are keys removable?

Hi Eliatrope , 


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Technically Z580 keys are removable so it is a yes. 


Keyboard specification and here ( page 28 ): 

Full-size keyboard, 6-row, multimedia Fn keys, recovery key
6 Row QWERTY (Standard) Full Keyboard

FRU list page 94 - 121 as sample part


Hardware manual don't offer specific key removal guide as entire board is replaced but some party would offer individual key repair such as here and here 


Take time to review the highlighted links first  and as usual technician practice , to try it with one NON commonly used key . 


Hope this help answer your query.
