Hello and welcome.

eBay or a breakers yard could be your best bet for these switches.

I see you are in the UAE. Give Al-Futtaim Honda services a call. They are fantastic and can probably source you some for a fair price. I know they have a couple of outlets - best one by far is the one on SZR.

@TheDarkKnight thank you very much! I called them few weeks back but they sell it as a whole, I mean including the switch assembly.. and its not cheap :ROFLMAO: and I don't want to throw away these since its still working fine, its just the paint that annoys me. I think all Honda has this issue, I was hoping to find the buttons only, or there isn't one available? I will try to check ebay too today.. thank you!!

Repainting is definitely the quickest and cheapest option.

Just had a look on eBay - those controls go for around £50 a go....quite expensive!

I think you'd have adherance issues, and it would be impossible to match the color and texture.
I'd try to find some thin, adhesive backed film of some sort, cut it out with an xacto and cover the entire buttons.
Or maybe nail polish?

Carbon fibre or gloss black wrap? :)

I had the same issue on my 2014 Civic
They seem to have corrected the problem on the new models.
You press a raised rim around the outside, not the label.
Kind of late for the older cars though.

i found this online and they ship world wide. It cost $50 for the AUDIO CONTROL including shipping fee. I still couldn't find for the cruise control though.

@fishycomics yup, I rarely purchase products online that's why. Also, I really don't want to spend that much for the whole assembly because mine is still working fine, its just the buttons that I need to replace.. Been searching online for the buttons but I guess its not available anywhere. I found a complete assembly from a salvage shop yesterday and its way cheaper too! but my guess is, it has like 80% of its life before it starts to chip off and have the same issue. if I couldn't find any, I think I will just remove the black color to make it all white.:ROFLMAO:
