Clima repair have started selling them but quite expensive for two plastic switches.

http://www.climarepair.com/porsche-replacement-switches-for-climate-unit-v-3/

Or you can do it yourself by masking the lettering with vinyl letter stickers from eBay and a tin of plasticoat spray

There are mate but dont use the one on ebay (not the ebay diy finns talking about) this is a company you send them to, I have seen some reviews of awful repairs , think there a company in scotland that do a decent job hopefully other will answer who . but in short yes they can be refurbed and its a known issue Thumb

Jeeesus Christ !!!! , £108 for two switches. I've taken my climate control front fascia apart already and all buttons are out!! Mmmmmmmm.........

@Phil, the ones on eBay are the vinyl transfer which you put on and then paint the switches black as long as the switches have been said papered back to plastic first !!! Don't know what to do !! £108 Is daylight robbery and it was reduced from £115 lool

Cheers

If you do it yourself and take your time sanding back the old coating on the switches they come out really well.

I have just done a scan and climate repair in south wales are the same guys as the one on ebay that advestises the service they are £85 which considering they are questionable although seem to mave mostly good feedback ,personally I think I would spend the extra £30 and get the clima repair replacements or try a DIY job with the DIY kit

Sorry Phil. But don't get that sticker kit it's horse s**t I have in the past and they are meant to stick over the whole switch, they are gloss black for a start and don't fit. You are better off just getting some vinyl letters of eBay and using them it works much better. Something like this but measure the letters first this was just a guess, I cut the fan symbol out but you could use a combination of stickers to get the shape such a as few ,,,,, and ......

This one looks like it will do the job the bad one is the climarepair stickers, I think there is also someone on the forum that does this kit

After buying from Climaterepair.com the poor designed never tested before V1 version switches for which a refund was refused, I filled a Paypal claim, sent back and was refunded by Paypal. Not sure about later versions but the V1 was totally crap - never again.

Since the whole panel was taken apart I sent my original switches to http://climaterepair.co.uk/ in the UK to be refurbished.
At that time quite expensive and still is compared to ebay prices but they did (for me) a good job in repainting the switches incl. the white markings just as OEM but then not rubberized and light up in dark with light on.

+1 for climate repair.co.uk. Refurbed mine and did a great job - there's a pic if you click on the link below my avatar.
