Non-latching rewind button on FE2

I got an FE2 from Roberts a couple weeks ago. It's in good shape overall and it even has recent seals and mirror damper.

But the film rewind button on the bottom doesn't latch: as soon as I start to rewind the film, it pops back out again.

I could request a return, but I don't really want to do that if the repair is not very involved.

Can you hold the button down and continue to rewind?

Yes, so it's not critical, but it is sub-optimal.
