x1 carbon yoga 2nd gen keyboard row not deploying properly

When my yoga arrived, the A-L row did not properly pop out when I opened up the lid- I managed to get the row to pop out by pushing the K key slightly upwards, but the entire row still seems recessed even after doing that. The row occasionally still sticks down when flipping between tablet mode and opening the laptop, and almost always sticks when the laptop's been closed for a few hours.

Is this a common problem (preferrably one with a common solution) ? It seems like the row of keys might have a downwards bow in it or something similar, if that helps. It really sucks to type on and I'd love to fix this without sending it in for repairs.

I don't think you want to fix this yourself.  The way you replace the keyboard on this model is that you  remove parts starting with the bottom cover.  You take off EVERYTHING including the screen and what's left is the keyboard
