    I have replaced volume buttons on my 4S thinking it would fix my issue. The buttons remained stuck with no clicking sound. I had to press down hard to raise or lower the volume. After the repair I'm seeing that my buttons are loose and again I have to press the buttons hard. I opened my phone again and now I'm seeing contact between the ribbon and volume buttons is spaced. What should I do now?

    If your phone is under warranty I would really recommend to bring it to your nearest Apple store if possible and let them look at it for possible replacement and or proper repair especially if you have AppleCare +. Either way even out of warranty I would still take it to the Apple genius bar.

    Okay, as i mentioned.. Do a comparison if they are junk, then contact them for a refund or a replacement set.. Or have Apple look at it.. the cost might not be that much.

    I really hate saying this, but I think the issue is the ribbon inside the phone. I saw the repair online and wow... Literally have to take the whole phone apart..

    Yes. You should never have bought new buttons in the first place. The ribbon cable is what needs replacing. Where are you located?
