I think the buttons only have to be cleaned.

diesassemble the ipad like shown in this guide (but you can see the volume button in step 3 - so you dont have to go all the way with the guide)

clean the button assembly with isopropyl alcohol (>90%) and a soft paintbrush

the needed tools are listed in the guide

good luck

Did it solve your problem? I had an issue where a drop of water may be in contact and the volume down button no longer works, only volume up.

50%. I wa able to open the iPad like it was described here, and the Volume up Button works again, only the Volume down Button was already destroyed. Maybe because I was waiting to long for trying to fix it. The Metal behind the Button was broken. Buy the Tools and clips here and the change to can fix it is very high. Also I hope there will be Volume Parts for exchange that Part in the future. Because a broken clip is a broken clip...

The opening of the iPad is a little hard for the first time, but the glass is very Strong, and after it was not the big deal. Only buy the iPad clips here on ifixit, because you have to replace that.

Guys! Did you managed to fix the vol buttons finally?

I've similar problem. My vol(-) button is not working as vol(+). No (sort of) clicking when i'm pressing it. Is it possible to buy whole volume button flex somewhere, or only microswitch should/can be replaced?

Is it possible that iFixit team will post guide how to do it?

I think that button problems are the most common flaws.

No, I opened and cleaned it, but the Button was already defect, like I wrote in my Message above. It's a really pain to have no Volume. Would be nice to have a Part for Replace that Button.

that's because they probably didn't have it in stock and ordered it just for you from China.
