Hi Mighty 147 - Just confirming that by using the Autoglym prodcut it has
1) Removed the sticky coating?
2) Kept the coating on and removed the stickyness
3) Are you using this once only or weekly monthly etc to stop the coating beibng sticky?
Thanks in advance for your reply
Hi sorry just re-visiting this.
The AutoGlym 'Vinyl & Rubber Care' stuff worked really well.
2. It didn't remove any stick stuff no.
I used it a while back now but it does neeed a re spray.
It does give a glossy sheen I guess.
It simply made the centre console a heck of a lot less sticky, i used it on the door handles and window switches also.
It helped but not cured 100% I guess.
I did look at leather covers for the door handles on fleaBay but they look a touch naff for my liking.
There is a way of getting the handles off ok its 2 bolts but the upper one has a stiff plug in there.
David W I think has an amazing photo bit by bit guide on the forum somewhere.
I'll tackle this another time but removing the sticky gunk might be an option.
I think the main issue with sctratches etc on my ones at least are on the sticky surface - I guess underneath the plastic being well protected will be ok?
As for the window switches - the driver side - the sticky stuff was so tatty it just came off with fingernails and rubbing.
The finish underneath is simply black plastic like the switches so when you're done it all matches and looks and feels lovely!
The passenger side was a lot more effort. I didn't try loads of products but with determination it came up nice.
I removed both; be very careful the plastic if taking apart the unit (best avoided) is very brittle.
Also the main driver side has a screw underneath the overhang in the door as I discovered too late after prising off the top of the unit!!
Ive not tried the Turtlewax leather stuff yet or the Napisan.
I think regular application of the Vinyl and Rubber care from AutoGlym would be wise yeah.
I need to reapply soon but it made a heck of a lot of difference.
It's top quality stuff worth a go!
