You may need to unbolt it from the floor in order to either fix it or fit a new one.

If the button is quite free - you may be able to prise it out of position and then push the inner item that it would normally press with a Screwdriver etc. You will then have to sort out a permanant cure as per Bustem Knuckle etc.
