    This is a well-known problem with the Gen 1 cars and has been discussed quite a bit (see threads below). My personal solution was to remove the buttons as explained in the following article: fan switch soft touch peel - repaint - Articles , and send them to: stickynomore.com - they will refinish them for you for about $75 + your shipping cost to them. Turn around is usually only a few days.

    The finish they send back is a black, satin finish almost identical to the other buttons on the HVAC unit, and it has small decals for the Temp and fan symbols (which still glow in the dark BTW).

    SEARCH, and you shall find.

    My 2006 Cayman peeled off months ago but it really does not bother me because i can not see them because my headliner is hanging in my eyes and my fingers are stuck to the radio knobs.
