Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

My buttons in my 9-5 had like a sticky gue on it almost like tape had been stuck to the volume knob, all the sid knobs, I don't have a clue what was on them, purchased the car with 60,000 miles and they were that way when I got it. The armor all has all different brands, leather cleaner, dash gloss, tires, and one that has the word clean whips. They come in a plastic canister. My buttons were not deteriorated and the clean wipes didn't leave a gloss to it. I don't know what armor-all uses on their cleaning wipes if I had to guess it smelled like glass cleaner.

I had to clean my buttons fairly hard to get the stick gue tape residue off all the buttons, and it didn't rub off any thing.

I did use it on the windshield whip-er handle which started to rub the lettering off. But as for the sid and the radio and climate control buttons Armor all clean wipes, worked great. any auto-zone, advanced auto parts, wal-mart carries it. The clean whips only clean they don't leave any gloss or residue behind after use.
