I figured out how to do the button swap. Pretty simple swap once you figure it out,and having the plunger and spring shoot across the kitchen
My cat was on both items quicker than you could blink.

I took a punch the same diameter as the hole in the button and pushed in until the plunger disengaged itself from the button and then I turned the button up and out with the punch still inside the button. I put a small shop rag over the bayonet to keep the plunger and spring from flying across the kitchen like the first attempt.

Ah ha! That's how it releases. Mine must be seized or gummed up.

It has one of those Jeezus springs inside. That is where one removes a pin or screw and.. Jeezus!......

Tech tip:- Don't mess with Jeezus springs and small parts in a room fitted with wall to wall shag pile carpet!

ZED had alot to do with me attempting that in the first place. I knew it had something to do with the hole in the button,and when I pushed the punch in I felt the plunger keep moving after the button stopped.

Wear safety glasses! the spring is quite strong.
It's a bit of a struggle to get it all back in as well.
