remove battery and manual key.

Cut the edge where the manual key slots in (the bottom comes away from the top. cut all the way round the edge then move on to arround the battery.

Resolder switch ,you need a very fine soldering tip temprature controlled as its easy to damage tracks.
Secure switches with glue (so they dont come away again!)

Reseal card with glue.

Job done!
I tried this with a dead card i had and managed to twist the circuit board while trying to cut it open a few components dropped of - I will actually need to get another card working but dont feel confident enough to do it!
