Most front panels are held on by friction plugs that have a spring like function that expands into the hole. Gently pull on one end of the front panel and it comes off.

How do you replace the power button on a 455o tower?

The computer tower will have a steel box frame with the cosmetic front and at least one removable side panel. The power switch itself will be mounted on the front of the frame either on the inside or the outside. If mounted from the inside, a either screw or 'fingers' molded into the switch body itself will clip into holes punched into the frame. If mounted from the outside, that cosmetic front will have to be removed to access the switch. In either case, a side panel must be removed to unplug the switch pigtail from the motherboard.

While this can be a very simple repair, it also provides plenty of opportunities to damage motherboard with a static electric discharge. If you do not have access to a grounding bracelet, be certain that on bare forearm is kept in direct contact with the bare steel order to bleed any buildup of static electricity that could folllow your hands into the case.

Power switch replacement

Well unfortunately you cant get one to buy for any case or tower, what you will need to do is get your self a new case(tower) or simply find an old case and take one out from it..
