Default Volume Buttons broken no reason, Can I fix them?

Today when i woke up and powered my nexus 4 i noticed the volume buttons weren't working and they felt a bit weird. I have no idea how this could've happened as they working fine the previous night and i didn't drop it or get it wet or anything. When i moosh the middle of the buttons really hard sometimes the volume panel thing pops up so they still work to an extent. The thing that worry's me is for rooting related things like rebooting to recovery or if i need to hard reboot. Anyway i was wondering if anyone knows a way i can fix this? Maybe replacing the volume rocker if that's easy to do?

Never had them broken but they're easily replaceable.

EBay for the parts. You'll need a Phillips and a torx5 screwdriver for the repair. Look at ifixit for reference but don't bother removing battery.
