The old power button is removed by pushing the power button to the right, pushing up on the power button to lift the left side of the power button over the plastic ridge that was holding it in place, and then sliding the power button to the left. The new power button is installed by reversing these steps.

Remove the front cover.
First, insert a small pry bar where the black front cover and white back cover meet.
Begin prying the black plastic up, slowing moving around to the bottom and other side.
At an angle, carefully pull up on the front cover separate the two pieces.
Excellent! Now you have removed the front cover!
Place the new power button in the slot so that the right end of the power button is under the plastic ridge on the right and the left end of the power button is on top of the plastic ridge on the left.
Make sure the power button is oriented the same way as the slot. The bottom left corner of the power button should stick out more than the top left corner, and the top right corner should stick out more than the bottom right corner. A simple way to check this is to held the power button in place and look at the side of the device (from the "outside" of the device).
Grasping the power button between your index finger and your thumb, slide the power button to the right.
As you do this, the left side of the power button will come off of the plastic ridge it was resting on. The power button will rest against the case.
Move the power button back and forth to make sure it is in the correct position and free to move.
