Why would you flip the spacebar and modifier keys? It's one of the most pointless and stupid trends in the keyboard world...

 

 

If you're lucky, you just seated the spacebar wrong on the stab, but if they're PCB mount and you don't have a hotswap board, have fun desoldering all your switches to remove the PCB so you can access the stab to fix/replace it.

1 small hands and I type for a long time and the keys rub against the top of my parms and can get sore because of it, it hasn't stabbed into anywere, I was a bit wreckless and pulled the left stabiliser straight from the board the keys fit fine in there current position.

What keyboard is that? If they're plate mounted stabs you just need to remove/desolder the spacebar switch, then replace the stabiliser, resolder or replace that switch and move on.

Sorry for the crusty keyboard, it's had to put up with slot since Corona, my switchs are no hot swap, they are kahil reds.

The wire came out of the stabilizer stem. You shouldn't just be able to pull it out like that.

Looks like plate mounted stabilizers. You should only have to desolder the spacebar switch to repair it. There are plenty of videos on youtube that show how to repair it.
