    Take it to a Genius Bar, get a repair estimate.  Your warranty is void now and you will pay for the repair.  Could be good new, but do not bet on it.

    Take it ASAP to your local Apple retailer for service. Doing anything yourself will likely make matters worse. Be prepared for a large bill.

    The keyboard is in kind of an odd place.  To get to the keyboard and remove it,  litterally everything else must be removed first (spoken from experience) This will run the risk of breaking other parts that currently do work.  Unless you have a very steady hand and know exactly what you are doing, I would advise against ever trying to service your own MBA (except for replacing the HDD, which is actually simple).
