I have been meaning to write a guide for these honestly. All of the keyboards from the MacBook pro 16” 2019 and forward work the same way…. Anyways.

You’ll want something thin and firm. I have a dedicated tool for this, but I have used the back end of a fresh plastic spudger when I don’t have that at the ready. But honestly you can probably get away with a thin flat head screwdriver or even a credit card, but the thinner the better. You’ll want to go in along the bottom edge (or either side, just not the top edge) of the keycap and pry upwards. Gently. The goal is to unsnap two little clips in the corners along that bottom edge. You’ll hear them click once they come undone.

Once you get them to unsnap, the top edge is effectively a hinge. So lift up the now freed bottom edge and pull the key cap towards you, rather than straight up. This should allow you to see what’s stuck in the keyboard, make sure the scissor mechanism is operating correctly etc…. Key goes back in the opposite way.

EDIT: here’s another video which shows sort of the methodology. The person making video uses 2 picks. I’m not sure that’s necessary, but it’s the same idea whatever tool you use.

I know I might be late but I have the same MBP 14 and my keycaps just decided to fall off when I ignored this issue.
My Spacebar and L key both fell off after turning mushy, then not going back up, then just fell off.

In both cases it was one of the tiny plastic pins that hold the keycap in place, they just fell off and seemingly got stuck in the scissors or next to the membrane.

I'm not sure I posted in the right section so here we go again:

Before I try this, what will I find underneath... ? Explanation: my left Command key works poorly: it won't 'hold' the press (mainly for app switching. It is probably the key I use most but it has never been a problem until this machine. So:

Q1: is removing the key the best way to stabilise that key or am I wasting my time/taking a risk for nothing?

Also, I've also noticed that this keyboard (MBP14 2021) seems a lot less responsive than previous models: lots of skipped characters when typing.

Q2: Can one vary the sensitivity of the keys in general?

I would spend so time reviewing this 2021 MacBook Pro Teardown: A Glimpse at a Better Timeline while it won’t show you the view downwards from the keyboard side it does offer a good frame of reference.

As to you Q’s

#1 - No taking the keycap off and re-installing it won’t alter that, replacing the cap and hinge pieces is the correct action. If it’s still under Warranty I would let Apple fix it.

#2 - Open up the keyboard prefs control panel, that’s all there is.
