G'day all, just wondering if anyone has ever had a sticky internal switches?
My Maserati coupe has this problem and I believe some earlier ferraris also had this problem.
I've looked at getting them replaced but it's too expensive as I have a few switches to fix.
My question is, can the switches be repaired by myself or if anyone knows anyone in Australia that can?
Hope someone can help, cheers mark

You got to love the soft touch coating.

I've done a few of my 360's using Methylated Spirits, you will need plenty of time and clean cotton rags.
Can I suggest you try a test piece first to make sure this way is working for you.

Had a 575 with same issue, used tea tree oil and metho with cotton ear buds, have heard 599's have the same issue, its to do with the plastics used (lowest tender at the time), I think PP may have had the same issue on his 355, thus anything maserati/ ferrari/ fiat/ alfa/ lancia between 1994/5 to 2009.
Meeting women on the Internet? Remember, the more similarities u “magically” have, & the more she agrees with u, the fucking crazier she is.

It happens to all Ferraris eventually. Same thing happened on my F50. Spent a fortune on new switch gear and 4 years later it was starting again.
