I recently ran into this myself... sticky space-bar. I pulled off the key and cleaned up all the junk from 8+ years of use, but reassembly didn't help (in fact made it worse).

I ended up using some spray lube on the metal bars (after some trial and error). Seems all better now.

Wow another victory for Tri Flow lubricant.

My space bar was getting a bit sticky and making things slowwwww.

On my almost 10 year old early 2008 Macbook Pro (Penryn), I couldn't figure out anything to do after replacing the spacebar with newer used version.

So I took you advice and gave it another look and cleaning with the Tri Flow lubricant on the metal bars and well, there ya go, better.
