Vibrator Switch Removal and Install
I have an iPhone 3GS and I'm replacing the headphone jack/vibrator switch/power button flex cable. I noticed that the vibrator switch is connected to a small metal housing by 2 prongs besides the double stick tape. The prongs are mushroomed as if they were intentionally flatened at the tips. It looks like a mushroom or like a rivet. First, how do I remove it? Cut the tip, pry it out, or use heat?
Then when I install the vibrator switch on the flex cable to the metal housing, how should I flaten the tip if it is necessary? I searched for a video or pictures to no avail.
The part is on the following link. The switch is at the bottom left
The housing with the switch attached is on the link below. above the orange #6 sticker is the metal part and you can clearly see the prongs that look like they were flatened like a rivet.
Is this a good question?
