dis-assembling MS Arc Keyboard?

    Have any of you ever dis-assembled a MS Arc Keyboard?
    Are the keys like on a laptop where you can at least pull them out one by one?

    I opened it up to a certain degree (anything that has screws) but there's now way to get at the keys that way because the plastic that holds in all the keys in actually fused there instead of screwed.

    I spilled some juice on mine and now some of my keys aren't clicky anymore because of the sticky stuff under them.
    It makes the keyboard feel very unresponsive.

    That's exactly why I drink my coffee black.

    I just did a test with the ~ key and it's just regular laptop keys so I guess since I can't get to the keys from the back I'll just have to remove all the sticky ones and clean them one at a time.
    Of course that's assuming none of them break Smiley

    I wonder if something like this would work on your problem? Unlike a laptop, when you spill an Orange Julius on your keyboard, at least just the keyboard goes kaput.
