    can i get a button replaced on my Audi stereo?

    right, one of the buttons on my Audi stereo has had the FM writing flaked off. Being the purist that I am, apart from a DIY tippex solution, is there any way I can replace this to maintain the great interior and exterior looks of my car ?

    I dont think you have any chance mate unless you get hold of a busted stereo. Audi will not have sub-components for an outsourced item, they arent manufactured by them and you may have to bite the bullet and buy a new stereo, then sell yours on ebay.

    i phoned up preston audi yesterday, for a new volume button as the finish has perished a little, and they are 8 each plus vat, dont know if they do the FM button but worth a try.

    To be fair the volume knob is just a push on/pull off standard knob, not sure if the FM button is quite as easy to change.

    a few of my buttons are worn thru to the white, like the window switches, youve got me thinking now lol

    Seriously tho i doubt you will get the fm button, and even if you do the stereo will require major dismantling to fit it, you can count on that
