And on the 159, the numbnuts at Alfa repeated the experience by coating door pull and window switch surrounds with the same nasty goo....! :crying2:Yup, same goo as on the 91/92/93 164 overhead switch panel surround. Evil stuff, but easily removed. Have no idea what they were thinking.
I used ethyl alcohol. Didn't craze the plastic and took the goo off really well. I'm pretty sure that with acetone you risk crazing the plastic. Whatever you use, I would test a bit on the underside just in case.This is just in time , I am looking for it replacement .:wink2:
Sorry didn't mean to doubt/offend. Acetone normally crazes or melts plastics. I was just concerned it would do the same in this case but if it worked for you then great!Well I've only done it 4times on 4 different cars with acetone so you are probably right, it probably doesn't work well.
You just have to be careful not to overdo the cleaning, then the plastic should be fine. It is important to know when the top layer is gone, so you don't rub it on the plastic.I was just concerned it would do the same in this case but if it worked for you then great!
