All that is needed for this is a small counter sunk self tapper screw and a foam earplug.
Drill a hole in base of shifter knob inline with button groove (see diag 3)
Counter sink hole so that screw head is recessed (diag 2)
Fit earplug inside the back of groove (to cushion button when depressed)
Fit screw making sure it doesnt bind on outer of groove or screw is too long.

Hope this helps a few people..

Thats a hell of alot more cheaper than buying a whole new one... definately worth remembering.
Maybe consider putting together a documentation on it, and stick it in the technicals documents section or something. im sure alot of people have the same problem.


Cheers

Tried it and it works beautifully, thanks for the tip! :)

Now I just wish I hadn't thrown my old leather one away a few years back...
