How to replace the iPhone home button

My home button stopped working. It has no water damage or anything like that. On the website it says iphone front assembly. Is this what I need to buy. When I press on the home button, it doesn't do anything. Maybe something got disconnected. I have never done repairs to my phone before so any help would be much appreciated :)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

For those who are having a non-responsive HOME button, I got my working by cleaning the two pads that the two fingers sit on. I used the cleaning fluids for LCD screens. You have to open the Iphone slightly using the method posted here on Ifixit but you don't have to disconnect any cables.
