Default 8700R Keyboard replacement

Please Login to Remove!

I have replaced cases on these puppies before when I have smashed my screen but now the keyboard is acting up as the T key doesnt work. I have other 8700R donor bodies - can I easily swap the keyboards ? Anyone done this before - have pictures maybe ?

Thanks in advance..

Did you see this: 8700 Disassembly - BlackBerryFAQ

Never done it, so can't advise, just point.
