This is weird - power button cover on Mac Book Pro split
Posted by: Lizabeth

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014)

Just noticed it this morning - none of the other keys are split. Not sure how it happened.

Is this fixable? Or do I just put some duct tape on and live with it?

I'm not ready to replace this laptop yet.

TIA

It's just a key cap so you should be able to find a replacement. The one seller I found quickly is out of stock, but as an example: [www.ebay.com]

Okay, next question - how easy is it to replace myself? Or is this something for the experts?

Probably will go with some clear tape on it for the time being...duct tape may leave sticky on the screen.

It's pretty easy, assuming the scissor key mechanism underneath is still in good shape. Pop off, pop on. Even if you have to replace the scissor key (b/c it's broken or comes out in the process), it's easy, just "delicate" because the parts/connectors are tiny.

The procedure is fairly easy:
