Done! Works great after a few adjustments. The epoxy gave the rubber pegs a slight mushroom effect. Lil axle grease. Done deal, Thanx for the epoxy idea bec the toothpicks weren't workin out for me.

Sounds great! Glad it worked for you. Now the real test. Get your car good and hot inside. Run your climate at 80 for about a half hour, and then try all of them. Heat makes them more flaky. If you pass this test, you should be ok for summer.

I'm still looking into a better option for rebuilding these. A complete swap to another type of material.

The pieces of toolhpicks worked perfectly for me. The only trick was cutting them to the right length and making sure that you back off the hex screws a little, if necessary, so that all switches click firmly.

Good luck with the epoxy coating.

:( My steering wheel controls have not worked for 3 years, so I followed your directions in the techinfo. I found my rubber pegs in such poor shape that I did not want to reuse them and toothpicks were out of the question, but they did give me an idea I got an extension tube off the side of a WD-40 can ( you know the red plastic tube), and took some aluminum foil and sprayed a light coating of Pam cooking spray(vegetable oil) on a small area of the foil. I put the foil on top of the burner element on my electric range (set heat at med.). Then gently press and rotate the plastic tube on the foil until a flat disk is formed the size of the large end of the old rubber peg, remove from heat and cool. Cut the tube with new end formed on it a little longer (maybe 1/32 longer) than the old rubber pegs. Repeat the process until you have 8 plastic pegs. Install the new pegs in the pods, making sure the new pegs do not bind the holes. Trim or form new pegs if necessary. Reassemble and enjoy crisp control functions once again

Now if I can get that **** HUD display to start working again!
