    • There are three plastic pins protruding up from the main back case that the button fits over. They appear to be slightly melted and mashed to hold it in place. I used a pocket knife to pry it up and off the posts.

    • Here it is with the back plate of the button pried off. This exposes a white plastic washer under it.

    • The center of the washer has a center locking pin to correctly place it on the back of the button. The washer is concave and the concave side faces the button, This gives the button a spring to it so that it will pop back out.

    • This is he back of the button that will now just push out. Picture #2 is with the button removed.

    • Test the button to see if it works.

    • After replacing the button, use something (like a low temperature soldering iron) that will melt the tops of the white plastic pegs to secure the button in place.
