Re: [DML] Mode switch [was - Needed Badly: Button Clip]

Better than petroleum jelly is some stuff called "Wurth's Rubber 
Care" - you probably have to get it online because there are not many 
retail places that carry Wurth's. 

It used to be sold at BMW dealers as "Gummi Pflege" (Elvis help me 
out here but I think that's German for "Rubber Care"). Some BMW places may still have it in stock. 

It's made for this sort of thing, and won't dry out like petroleum 
jelly and is light enough that it won't plug up the holes. This is 
probably something that the vendors ought to carry - it's great on 
the door seals too.
