I have had that Haappen and you really can't fix it. Once those little buttons start falling off, they will never stay again unless you glue them.

However, that plastic piece(s) that has fallen off is just a piece that is between the rubber part and the actual button. This was on my '03 and I just left those plastic pieces out and every time I needed to adjust it, I just pulled the rubber part out and used a pin or something. It pulled out and went back in pretty easy.

Now that I think about it, I did try to glue them back but I was afraid of gluing the button and then it wouldn't work either. So my attempt at gluing failed.

That's a re-occuring problem on the '03's. Not sure about other years though...
