I have a 2016 13" Macbook Pro (A1706). The keyboard has stopped working. Is it possible to replace the keyboard for a reasonable price and not replace the whole system board?
Details: I spilled a bit of water on the machine. I kept it off for a day. It powers on and everything works including the touchpad, but the keyboard. (Actually, the keyboard worked sporadically at first then completely stopped working.) I can use an external keyboard. I have reset the SMC and the NVRAM. I have run apple diagnostics and it found no issues.
The computer is old, but I don't want to replace it until the next generation of apple silicon MacBook Pros comes out. But I'd really like to use the built-in keyboard.
Is there a low-cost way to replace the keyboard to get me another six months from the machine? Does anyone know where this fits into Apple's fixed price list for repairs? Do I need to go to a nonapple shop?
Thanks for your help
