Mrlandy Hi All,

This problem is annoying. I fixed mine by peeling away chipped edges and sanding down edges smooth with nailfile emery board. Then I used auto pinstripe tape on the edges as it conforms to curves. Used to bother me constantly, now it actually looks like the tape was factory and no sharp edges.

Not if you got the leather wrapped wheel included in the drivers group package.

gbshelbymi Um... gotta remove the airbag? Not gonna happen. I'll put up with a few chips on the switches. Thanks for the link and reply, though.

burgeke Yes. It actually is cake. I found pics here on the forums to remove the airbag. You have to stick a flathead screwdriver in 3 places from behind the steering wheel. Once the airbag is out, the buttons pop right out. However.... the steering wheel is crappy hard rubber. Mine busted right where the buttons inserted so I had to get creative with glue. Once back together of course you don't see my creativity :)

Here is the link I used....

gbshelbymi So does the switch stack just pop out of the steering wheel? Disconnect the wiring harness and snap in a new one?

mrs smarty pants I am a second owner on an 09 focus.. it has 57k miles but I also have purchased the extended warranty. Should this cover the chipping on my steering wheel buttons?

Gabe2010SE Ford's 3-yr/36k warranty covers buttons peeling ... they have to replace the buttons, they don't repaint them ...

Also, if you have a Ford extended warranty, it needs to be PremiumCare to cover radios, if the radio buttons are peeling. Might be the same for steering wheel buttons.

cmmike1 Same thing happened on mine but I've just dealt with it. I was considering putting a little paint to fix it since I'm out of warranty.

red2009se GM cars are notorious for peeling, chipping dash labels, but never had any peel off on Fords, Nissan I owned. My dad's '06 Buick dash parts look very worn down and only has 60K miles
