Use the thinnest possible tape. That will ensure the keyboard functions well.

If that tape causes problem. We will be here to help.

Stick it properly and not too firmly.


How did you damage the flex anyways>?

One place on the keyboard was weird so I thought that a cable underneath was oddly placed. So I took off the keyboard and had to remove some of the double sided tape that was underneath in the process. There's flex on the sides now so I thought some tape would fix that.

As soon as the car is back i'll buy some tape.

Thats very very bad damage

Tape it up from both sides. Try to flatten it by placing it under heavy book.
Dont apply too much force when you apply tape.

You will need something stronger than scotch tape.

Not really, its normal when removing the keyboard. It flattens out after words and everything works.

I bought the tape now. It's not the scotch brand but it's probably similar. bought it from the book store. Sealed the metal thingy and put some on the metal panel under the keyboard.

At first I didn't think the tape would be strong enough but it looks almost exactly like the one Asus used?

Can you link me what tape would be good enough? Seems to have fixed some flex on the left side now though!

The bigger piece of the tape is the original from Asus.
