Key caps dropped off Powerbook - Mac Networking

The cap that sits on top of one of my Powrbook G4 keys has dropped off: one of the little lugs securing it to the scissors fitting one the key itself has fractured. Te last time this happened the machine was still under warranty so Apple's ludicrous policy of replacing the whole keyboard (80) instead of the key cap (1/10 penny) was appropriate: but now it isn't. Does anyone in the UK know were one can get replacement caps? Where do old Powerbook keyboards go to die? Kind regards, Devi Jankowicz...

    Default Key caps dropped off Powerbook

    The cap that sits on top of one of my Powrbook G4 keys has dropped off: one
    of the little lugs securing it to the scissors fitting one the key itself has
    fractured.

    Te last time this happened the machine was still under warranty so Apple's
    ludicrous policy of replacing the whole keyboard (80) instead of the key cap
    (1/10 penny) was appropriate: but now it isn't.

    Does anyone in the UK know were one can get replacement caps? Where do old
    Powerbook keyboards go to die?

    Kind regards,

    Powerbook Parts (which is at [url]www.pbparts.com[/url]) is good, and I believe it
    runs cheaper than the UK firms.

    Dear Steve,

    The key cap I lost is an 'H'.
    But I really don't mind _what_ replaces it, (so long as it's any letter or
    number or punctuation mark key, but not the function keys, which are smaller,
    or the various tab, ctrl, return etc keys which are larger.

    I'm not fussy! Just need a kep cap so I can make an 'h' at touch-typing speed
    without having to hit the 'h' key millimetrically, exactly, plumb centre to
    get it to work.

    I'll gladly pay postage from USA if there's no-one in the UK.

    Kind regards,
    Devi
