Use a thin metal pry tool to separate the button from the plastic button. There really aren't any guides or videos about this, as no one does it. I don't know how much money you could possibly save. Not to mention the Touch ID issue, which I can only imagine you've lost

It was an accidental $10 savings.I ordered the cable sans button not realizing that was the case. Is there any adhesive? Does heat help?
