on/off button

Does anyone have an exploded diagram or instructions of how to put the on/off switch together as mine has fallen apart but nothing looks damaged but not sure how it goes back together

The actual button slots and clips into the switch housing. There is no spring, the switch does the springing. You need to make sure the cables are properly pushed into the moulding as otherwise the switch housing wont fit back on.

Ah so the button is broken?

The button doesn't flex, it's the switch housing that opens out slightly to slide the switch out.

Is the actual housing broken, or just the clips stopping the switch from sliding out when clipped? If so it will possibly go back together and still work, as the switch cant move back when assembled.

I'll get mine apart in a bit and see if I ca nsee what you mean. Unless you've got any pictures of it?
