Hold button is broken? How to fix?

Ok, well I bought an iPod 3rd generation on ebay and the hold button was not working. Well I opened it up, and it turns out the little black switch thing that sticks up out of the little silver box bascially fell off when I touched it. So now there is nothing for the hold button to catch on to in order for the switch to work. How would I replace something like this? Would I have to replace the whole green flat part that it is sottered to? How hard is this? I mean I guess its not a real big deal, but because the buttons are so sensitive, it is realy hard to not have a hold switch because everytime my hand comes near it, it changes the song. Are there any cases that could help with out fixing the hold switch? Advice please???

The first problem is the biggest problem - the switch

finding a part that fits would be not that easy

the green flat part is the logic board - that's what makes the iPod an iPod - surely - when you find a working one, you could replace it (link is posted in your original question)

but even when you find a switch that could be fitted into the iPod - were you be able to solder the old one out and the new one in ?

I dont think I can detach that part from the logic board honestly. It doesn't look that way..

Would love to know what you searched to get this, I'm presuming youre talking about the switch not the logic board?
