How to replace the keyboard keys on M1 MacBookAir 2020?

Is it possible to take out 2 keyboard keys and replace them? What is the normal step by step procedure so I don’t break the keys? I saw some videos on YouTube but I don’t trust them. Do I have to take out the middle of the key on the right side, then left side, then the key will be out like this video?

I want to switch the physical Z and Y keys on the M1 MacBook Air 2020 keyboard because I have a Czech keyboard and I am using English language. The Y and Z keys are opposite as I want to use a qwerty physical layout but I the macbook came with the qwetz physical layout.

Thank you

What I can tell you the video is the process. But getting the key cap to latch back on is a bit tricky! I would recommend you buy spare key caps as I’m sure you’ll snap the clips.

Maybe its worth the effort to find your way to an Apple Store to have them move the keys around for you.
