    Okay, well in my Audi there are buttons all around the gear shifter and a drink holder between that and the armrest. Well I made the mistake of putting a drink in cup holder that some drop out overfilled so soda fell onto one of my buttons...

    now I got the sticky gooey stuff off the button, however now the button "sticks" after I depress it. Anyone have any tips or tricks on how to clean it out... I'd prefer if I didn't have to disassemble the entire center console but have a feeling it's in my near future. Thanks in advance.

    clean it with the car off, battery unhooked if you're really paranoid, then use a hair dryer or compressed air to clear any water/solution. let it dry outside for a while. I'd recommend doing this if you don't have to go anywhere for a while.

    if you soak the switch pretty good, you should be able to get it clean.

    Go to either an auto store or Radio Shack and pick up some electrical contact cleaner (NOT electric motor cleaner/degreaser). Spray it down into the area around the switch liberally, and let it dry on its own (should flash off fairly quickly).

    Then just clean the outer surface of the console/etc. and you should be good to go.
