Default [Q] Power Switch replacement

Heya Peeps

Has anyone had a problem with their power switch going duff on their N7100. Mine has (it sporadically works by being lucky when pressing it, its lost its springyness), so I am looking to get it fixed. Dreading the time it shuts off and I can't get it restarted!

Its still under warranty but unfortunately I need the phone pretty much every day so can't really wait for it to go of for repair and come back (plus its not running any samsung firmware if that matters these days?).

How hard is it to dismantle the device and replace the switch on it?

Sources for a suitable switch would also be great if anyone has experience with this side of things!

Thank you in advance for any help provided!

Guess that this isn't a commonly done thing.

I have ended up ordering a replacement switch from Amazon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00CBVQDL...051_TE_3p_dp_1), hopefully I'll get it tomorrow and I'll update as and when what it was like to swap over (since posting yesterday the switch has gone kaput fully!)
