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

You should never use a petroleum-based product like petroleum jelly
(aka vasoline) on rubber parts. It will, over time, deteriorate the
rubber. Same for grease or oil. I have not used Wurth's, I use
silicone grease. You can pick up a tube at an auto parts store. Same
stuff used for ignition connections. Petroleum jelly will also get
gummy and make the switch hard to turn eventually. Whatever you use
don't get sloppy with it. You just need a tiny bit. Too much will just
attarct dirt.
