Thanks in advance :)

If you are using the buttons given to you by the housing I am confident they will NOT come with the metal spacer. This allows the button to press against the cable, here's an example:

What I like to do is clean the old button up and reuse it, but you can take the spacer off the old one and glue it to the new one.
