Does anyone know where I can find a replacement kit for the spacebar on a Dell latitude C840 laptop?

The 3 times I bought some I used eBay stores, not the private sellers. There were a few different ones. I believe the vendor's name was Fix-a-key
If you don't see it listed, just email and ask

This laptop is for a government facility. I've tried convincing them to purchase refurbished items at a cheaper cost, but they are stubborn that way. I would have to purchase it from a legit business.

They are brand new, in the bag, with the hinge clips and the little rubber grommets

No wonder our taxes are going up

There are a lot of "legit businesses" on ebay. My replacement
keyboard was a brand new item and cost a whopping twelve bucks.
You can try your local computer stores and see if they have one
from a donor laptop. Or you contact Dell. I was not able to find
replacement keyboards on their site.
