two options.

the best of them is to open it up, and clean it out by disassembling it, then scrubbing it with a 99% isopropyl, and a toothbrush.

the other option is to spray it with a deoxidizing electronics cleaner, and let it soak, then scrub the button with the same isopropyl stated above.

First, you should do the obvious; if you haven't already you should wiggle the button around in order to get it loose. I'd also blow it out with canned air, you should be doing this on a regular basis anyway.

If all else fails, you may have to disassemble the controller and clean it from the inside.

Can't find a way to buy spares anywhere...
