Yes...you can take them off, pull them apart and hope to lube the rubber pins. Although most likely as Haro once said they have the consistency of peanut butter. At that point you cut toothpicks, dip them in jb weld and use those instead.

Search for the toothpicks and steering wheel controls.

I did the picks on the 95 and it'* still working great.

The techinfo works like a charm. I started with the pin restoration, but that didn't work so I now have toothpicks inside.

Only thing to remember is depending on which JB Weld you use curing time is up to 24 hours.
