2006 Corolla key microswitch, repair in Limerick?

Hi All,

We have a 2006 Corolla in the family, having an issue with one of the microswitches on the remote central locking key. The unlock switch is fine, however the lock switch isn't working very well.

I've taken the key apart, thinking that it was just the rubber button that has worn away, however on closer inspection, the little microswitch on the electronics of the key is spongy when pressed, rather than clicking.

Does anyone know someone reputable and reasonable to repair this in Limerick? I imagine it needs a new microswitch soldered into the board. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

I’d say a phone repair place could fix that.
