It's a surface mount switch .....you won't be able to change it with a standard soldering iron.

Switch is on the right of this picture (ignore arrows) :

Switch is on the left and is a right pig to change even if you have the right tools.
I wouldn't advise it.
Take starsparkle2311's advice. :thumbsup:
