The vibrator can be replaced individually, but most places sell it as a part of the back panel due to shipping costs. Buy a back and remove the vibrator to install it in your phone.

The guide to install it can be found here.

Here is the guide for replacing it, but I don't believe iFixit sells the vibrator itself, I know on the 3G it was attached to the headphone jack, but I don't think it is so for the S. You'll have to look elsewhere for that.

The vibration switch is actually a part of the headphone jack assembly. Here is the part and here is the guide for the replacement

Hope this helps!
