EliteBook 8560w keyboard removal

I ordered a new us-intl keyboard for my EliteBook 8560w. I can type faster with this layout. But removing the old keyboard was a challenge. You must be brave. 🙂

There is a description of the process from LaurentP in a threat at the HP Support Forum.

Here some additional pictures.

Press behind the spur with a small screwdriver:

Put a plasticcard between the keyboard and the frame:

and move it from PAGE DOWN to ESC.

After removing the keyboard you can see the two places which are difficult:

Have fun 🙂
