Asheesh, thanks for trying to help out.

What metal part? The electrical contacts for the button are on top of
the motherboard;  know because I can trigger AUX with a screwdriver.
The trouble is that the button is nowhere near them; also it doesn't
have the resistance it used to. It's like a spring has fallen out and
gone missing but I don't know where it could have. The metal parts
that the button does touch don't seem to be connected to anything.

Still concerned,
