I did a thread a while back where I used superglue and hot glue. This has worked flawlessly for quite a while. In fact the fix has lasted longer than the second set of buttons lasted after I had to replace the previous ones.

I posted photos etc.

I just super glued it back and then pushed some black sika into the gaps and a good smear around the place. the file is too large but it seems to have worked perfectly... fingers crossed. thanks for the tips !

If you can crop the image down in size, or crop off any bright or white background, that sometimes works so it can be posted.

Hi mate, I used building window tape the tar backed silver tape used to water prof house windows when building. It seems to be working good as it acts as a hinge + doesn't stretch
