I am trying to repair a malfunctioning button on my TE. I got the microswitch (little black thing) removed from the button but I don’t know how I’m supposed to disassemble the microswitch. There seem to be wedge tabs on the side but they don’t want to move when I push them in with a screwdriver. I vaguely remember seeing a button disassembly guide on here a while ago but I can’t find it anymore. Does anyone know how to take apart the microswitch so I can get inside and see the actual electrical contact for the button?
And before anyone asks: Yes, I verified that it is the button that is malfunctioning and not the wiring/PCB. Yes, I have already swapped out the LT/LB buttons for previous malfunctioning buttons so I don’t have any more spare buttons to swap. No, ordering new buttons online is not an option.
Alternatively, does anybody know of any retail stores in the Los Angeles/SF Valley area that sell replacement sanwa/seimetsu buttons? Maybe a video game hobby store or something?
