Sticky Window Buttons?

Postby CHeavin_2006 » Sun Sep 05, 2010 11:19 pm

My window buttons on my NC has been sticking lately when I roll up and down the windows.. Anybody else have this problem? It's not a big deal, but kind of annoys me from time to time.. How would I go about fixing this? Alcohol?

Or maybe brake cleaner. With the ignition off spray some in, work the switch a bit, repeat. Might line the console/cabin with some towels as brake cleaner tends to spew out of the can pretty forcefully.

Use only household detergents and cleaners. Brake cleaner or carb cleaner can mar or destroy plastic and paint.

You should really disassemble the console to isolate the buttons from the rest of the car and unplug the connections so you don't accidentally short the wiring, the liberally dose the buttons with cleaner then water.

You could try some 'electronic switch cleaner' spray. Should be able to get it at Radio Shack.
