    W124 Scratched AC Buttons

    The push-buttons of my AC are all scratched and I intend to replace them with new ones purchased online. The question is how to remove the old buttons? Is it necessary to remove and disassemble the AC control unit, or it is just a matter of pulling the buttons one by one with pliers?

    The buttons pull straight off. New ones push on. They are cheap new.

    I use what are known in the glassworking (stained glass) business as “grozer” or “breaker” pliers. Mine have wide jaws with serrations on them. It makes it easy to grab the buttons one at a time and pull them out without damage.
