what can I use to get the tackiness off of my buttons on my Jaguar XJ 2011

Asked by May 17, 2017 at 01:00 PM about the 2011 Jaguar XJ-Series L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

on both sides of the monitor and the window buttons there is a tackiness.  Is
there anything I can use to get this sticky tacky feeling away?  I hear this is a
common problem with the XJ from years 2011-2015 but my car isn't under
warranty so I need to figure a way to get it off myself.

I would go on Jag forums for more advice. If the tackiness is due to failing switch material you may not be able to clean it off.


I went on a couple of forums and found the following - use this product and it will remove the film. Some people used Goo Gone to remove the film and it left the buttons shiny as it removed the rubberized coating. The person that used the electronic cleaner did not report this effect.
