    Hi All,

    I'm hoping someone can help me with this horrible peeling that's occurring around my buttons on the Nav.

    What can i do? Apart from getting a new unit (which i don't want to do, as I'm selling my car soon and don't want to spend too much £) is there a dye or vinyl wrap that could be done to get rid/hide this?

    Any thoughts or advice welcome!

    Thanks in advance

    Time to upgrade :)

    You sure nobodies used dodgy cleaner, as I've never seen that on 1 rns-e ever.

    You could strip & spray if need be, you'd lose the volume graphic but that's minor.

    I would normally upgrade mate. Just don't really want to fork out at the moment trying to see if there is a cheaper option.

    What would you recommend using for stripping it then respraying? Losing the volume graphic is fine with me tbh. How do you reckon it will come out Nige?

    Cheers.

    That would depend on whose doing it & the products used lol.

    You've got nothing to lose, I have a slightly deformed A3 fascia, which tbh looks far better than that fascia if interested, but would need swapping onto yours.
