Having Trouble Getting "down arrow" Set Back Onto Keyboard

HP Recommended

Hello there,

 

I have spilled some soup on my laptop, nothing terrible just a little bit leaked near the arrow key. I was able to prevent any leakage below the keyboard itself. 

 

However, when i took off the down arrow key - to clean the underneath of the key, and the base of the key connection - I cannot figure out how to secure the key back into place. There is the 2 component plastic connector for the bottom of the key, and once I have them assembled (in what seems to be the only possible configuration), pressing into the keyboard is not securing it into place. The key is remaining wobbly, and unusable. 

 

Are there are advise on this topic, or reference I could see?

 

[HP Pavilion DV6, Down Arrow Key]

 

Thank you very much.

What is your product number, so I'll know the exact notebook you have?

Thanks,

This is very delicate work and if you have done any damage to the little mounting points and tabs on the key itself or the "sawhorse" mechanism or the board the key will not snap into place. There are vendors that will sell you a single key, but if you have damaged the mounting points on the board that will not help. New keyboards are cheaper than you think and I can replace 5 keyboards in the time it takes to mess around with a single troublesome key.
