Sticky, hard to push IP buttons.

Just wanted some of your opinions on an issue with my current 2011 BMW 328Xi instrument panel buttons. This includes all of the radio/preset buttons, the lock/unlock middle button, and some of the other buttons located in the middle instrument panel.

Since I've bought it, MAY 2013, the buttons would be very hard to push. It would feel like someone's super glued the buttons or spilled soda pop on it, making it hard to push down. I'm pretty sure this is not normal. Some of the other buttons are easy to push.

Has anyone experienced this before? Or have I just bought a car with defective IP buttons? Also, this should still be covered in my warrranty right? (my car is at 29k miles, and its a 2011).

Thanks for all your help!

Someone spilled a sugary drink on the buttons. This is not a defect. It is not covered under warranty.

You can try spraying a small squirt of Armour-all on right on the buttons and wipe the excess, this should loosen them up.

I would use some Deoxit instead.
