Most people end up stripping the existing coating and then repainting including the original designs on the buttons. I do not believe there are decals that can be applied.

I used Huggies baby wipes for my QP switches. They look great now.

My vents were getting sticky. The surface was still smooth. I wanted to head off the black coming off. I got some interior black paint from the auto paint store. Pic included. I did 3 or 4 coats, sanding smooth between. Then used flat clear coat. They look like new. Easy to do if you are used to painting with a can. If I could get the proper stickers, I would do my buttons. I also did my center radio speaker grill. I don't think "the sticky goo" is something on the vent surface,,, it is just the black coating that is getting sticky.

If you don't want to do it yourself, you can contact Sticky No More. They specialize in stripping and refinishing the black stick trim parts in these interiors.

That works on the buttons u have and other black plastic buttons cuz the plastic itself is black. I dont think goo gone will work on Nav/Radio buttons for the coupe cuz those buttons are clear with a white then black coating. When i was experimenting with it, it took everything off down to the clear. Just didnt work for me on the coupes Nav buttons

Hummm. Interesting.. But it works very well on interior plastic parts. It is kind of a plastic paint.

Well some buttons on the coupe are different not all of them. For instance as i mentioned the Nav/Radio and window switches are a clear plastic. The headlight switch which i just got done cleaning is a black plastic. So once i cleaned the goo off the headlight switch i had a nice black switch knob. Side note,,,, i also just got done with my practice run of refinishing the window, msp, sport, asr, etc...buttons. Ill post a pic on my Nav/Radio thread
