I followed Ryan's instructions and had no problem following them. HOWEVER, I ENCOUNTERED A MAJOR PROBLEM when I put it all back together: the control buttons wouldn't work. I took it apart again and examined the old one, which had plastic pins in the holes which the buttons were supposed to push. The new part didn't have the pins. I wanted to remove the pins from the old part and put them in the new one. This was difficult, and I broke the first one when I removed it. (I ended up super-gluing it together successfully.) In order to remove the other pins, I pried and pinched with needle-nose pliers to remove the plastic collar around the pin, then the pin came out easily and could be inserted in the new part, pushing hard until it clicked in place. Then when I put everything together it worked fine.
