Key won't go back in properly (butterfly keyboard)

Hi there, my T key on my Macbook Pro has fallen off. The key looks 100% in tact: the two top clips don’t seem damaged, and the two bottom hooks don’t seem damaged.

However when I try and put it back into place, I can’t get it to “click” in. Has the butterfly mechanism broken? It’d be great if I can try fix this myself as it’s currently lockdown in the UK so can’t get to an Apple store - I also fear it’s an expensive fix otherwise.

Turn the key over and see if it has a little plastic “scissor” attached. If it does, and it's not broken, lift the scissor carefully off of the key and reattach it to the keyboard by hooking it under the tab on the right-hand side, and then fastening the two little plastic hooks into the catches on the left side.

Hi Albert, it doesn't look like it has a scissor. I've added a photo to help. Thank you!

I’m having this exact same issue. Like OP’s key, mine looks completely fine, it just doesn’t want to click back in. The butterfly mechanism is still attached to the keyboard. I insert the key like shown in the video, and when I press on the top corners, it just doesn’t click into place. The hooks on the cap and the taps on the white butterfly part look fine. As far as I can tell, it looks exactly the same as in OPs pictures.

I have this exact same issue. Everything looks fine on the F key, but it won't click into place so it periodically pops out.

Hello, was anyone able to solve this riddle? I have the exact same problem with keys E and T. When placed on its place, I can use both of them, but when I press them around their bottom edge, that’s when they get loose.
