Is it possible to only replace the keyboard?

I have a liquid damaged keyboard on a late 2011 11" macbook air. ifixit only sells the top case assembly which includes the keyboard however it is very expensive. The guide also only gives instructions to replace the top case assembly with the keyboard already attached rather than separately. Is it possible to replace only the keyboard? I did find only the keyboard for sale on ebay listed here which is significantly cheaper.

The short answer is no. I just went through this w/ my early 2011 15" macbook pro. The entire topcase must be replaced, which involves removing screen, logic board etc etc. In my case it also required some special tools to remove the battery and such. The situation may be a little different w/ the air, so I would take a look at the topcase removal guide for the air on here.

He's right. You have to replace the entire top case; the two do not come apart.

I am going to replace keyboard only for my mba 11" mid 2011. they come as a separate component ranging from $50au to $199au.

Edit: I didn't manage to replace the parts on mass. Instead, I used the new keyboard part I ordered to individually replace the keys and the support/spring mechanism under each key.
