The buttons will be on some type of PCB inside the steering wheel I would imagine... so I'd guess they'd just need to change the PCB inside.

True.. Although looking at the time / effort / cost kind of thing I reckon they'd just swap the steering wheel - that being said - I guess it depends which parts they have in stock, or can get hold of soonest anyway.

They will just replace the button panel which can be bought has a full unit with both left and right buttons.
