Take the part off and remove the "sticky stuff" with a thinner and cloth, but do not scratch. The black dull paint under it will not come off unless you use paint stripper...Do not reseal it as it is a very nice dull black. The buttons on the other hand should not be stripped as they will be white when you finish. You can try to touch them up with dull black but do not paint over the white identification markings.

I have refinished a lot of these. Just cleaning the sticky stuff off will just give you a white button. Which doesn't look very good in my opinion. Im here to help if you want to have them refinished. Theres plenty of pics and references on my thread,,Thanks,,,,Email if interested [email protected]

The dreaded sticky buttons.
I've just taken it upon myself to strip and repair mine. Cleaned off the complete black and now need to prime and paint. I'll put up some photos when i have it all back together, hopefully by next weekend.
It's a fun job to get into, scary taking all the dash apart but with a bit of methodical thinking it seems to have been relatively easy.

Do yourself a favor and take them all out and send them to Lorenz and have them done right. Sooner or later all of them will be sticky. He did mine and I couldn't be happier with them. If you want pictures of my car please let me know.

buttons

I just sent my audio control panel buttons to Lorenz. I can't wait to get my NONSTICKY buttons back. When you remove the upper panel, there is a black plastic part that will break.. It is in the DIY on this forum. I only broke 1 screw hole off. I am using epoxy to strengthen the area around all the screw holes. I hope this helps.

Its 50/50 chance that the black plastic cover could break into 20 pieces. I now make these and they are available if someone needs one. To Kevin, I think you should be ok with yours just do not over tighten when reinstalling. Thanks

I got my buttons back from Lorenz-06MT. I love them. All is back together and looking good. The black piece didn't break any more. Wondering what the 4 springs are for?

Couldn't agree more - I have sent mine to Lorenz and although they haven't got back yet the pics look awesome - much better than you would expect to achieve unless you are a specialist
