Can I replace the PTT button on the radio from a housing kit?

Why not just do the whole housing? It is often easier than you think and easier than removing one little part that is likely to get broken.
Brand and model of radio would help a lot.

PTT button on RDV 2020 is hard to push

This problem is typically caused by small component behind the PTT button being cracked or broken. The RDX series radios respond best if the user presses the PTT button in the center versus the top or bottom sections of the button. Once the button becomes hard to press it is best to get the radio repaired. Commonly if the radio remains in use the PTT issue will get worse as the internal PTT component is pressed harder, pushing it further away from the outside button and eventually loosening it from the component board.

Best regards.

We have two radios with problems, one the volume is to low and wont respond to vol control and the other has a problem with the transmit button,sometimes it works fine other times not

On the radio with the low volume, it is possible you are having a low receive (Rx) issue, or you have a bad volume potentiometer. It would need to be seen by a radio technician to determine the exact cause and if it can be repaired. In most cases, the flat rate repair for this style of radio is around $69 ea.

Your second radio with the transmit button (PTT) issue likely has a failing push-to-talk internal button, or a broken spacer behind the rubber plug. These would be common failure parts on this type of radio and replaced during a repair.

Best regards.

BMW radio on/off button broken

There are radio restoration companies that will do the same thing for you from $100-$300 but you will need to remove and send the radio to them unless you can find one near where you live. Aftermarket replacement will be easier and less costly. Sound Authority is a good place for an aftermarket replacement if you do not have them close by. Check out the store you plan to use, some stores will not do installations for BMW, Mercedes, Jaguar, etc.
