Replacing an a500 plus floppy disk

Hi. I discovered recently that my a500 plus floppy drive has died.

Is it possible to replace the floppy with an 1200 floppy unit?
I have a spare one of those from my old 1200 which also recently died.

Thanks in advance,
Frank

It will work without any problems. But I think it won't fit into the case properly with the eject button etc.

Ah. That's what I was worried about. Thanks for answering.
Is there any way to attach the eject button onto the 1200 drive?
If not it's time to hit ebay for a replacement

Nope. You need to make a slightly bigger hole to accommodate the new button.
