    Is there a 'how to' for this?
    I have seen some new buttons on ebay and would like to replace my worn out ones.

    Off the top of my head....

    Remove the back cover, remove the battery, unscrew the small screws and the 2 sections will come apart (Be careful because the button for the key flip is under tension so it might pop out at you!!) I think I twisted the two sections to release the tension, once the 2 sections are apart there's a grey coloured plate inside, slide this back and this will release the rubber buttons. Installation is the reverse process. You will need to put the spring for the key flip in and rotate the 2 sections (about 3 times) this creates the tension for the flip.

    If its a B7 3 button key then the rubber just pulls off the top of the key, no need to take the key apart. I just purchased two of these rubbers off ebay,from two different suppliers.
    All I would say is the more expensive on feels better than the other on, but none of them are like the original one.
    But as the sayin goes you get what you pay for..
