    G75x keyboard keys, which direction should I remove them from?

    Hey all, so the final step in repairing the spil I had is cleaning out under the spacebar and a couple other keys, which became slightly sticky (though the spacebar is ridiculously sticky unless it's in cold temperatures, it's ridiculously difficult to press down, and takes a couple seconds to pop back up.)

    Anyways, the set of spudgers I ordered finally came (this gave me an excuce to finally get some instead of using screwdrivers lol) but I'm wondering what direction I should pry the key up from to prevent damaging the mechanism. I'm hoping maybe someone here has done this before, or might have a spare keyboard assembly they can test it out on and tell me which direction is easier to remove the keys from.

    Well, the best way is top down, the spacebar uses a traditional wire hinge, with two of the smaller plastic crossing ones on each side with one button in the middle.

    The smaller keys only use a plastic hinge. All the clips on the bottom of the keys look fairly fragile, so don't manhandle them. If anyone wants pictures of the assemblies, just ask.
