    I took the backspace key off to clean under it. Now I cant get the button to fit the right way again. It wobbles. There are two small clips and two metal rods.

    fit the metal rods to the key and then orient them to slip into the clips in the keyboard as you push down.

    Yeah I tried that. It works that way but the keys(I took more off) still don't sit as they should. Pushing the edges of the buttons makes the keys come loose.

    It's under warranty still, so I could get a replacement. It's not too bad really, just annoying.

    It looks like the very tiny connectors have snapped off. The buttons still press down, just quite loose.
