well my air bag cover didn't last well, it's very hot here and the net effect is that it looks like german car buttons that have had cleaners on them.

Is there any cure? for example, is it possible to strip off the sticky material?
I've also heard that you cant replace the airbag cover, but have to get an entire new airbag??

Does anyone know if it's possible to strip the rubber layer off, only to find a smooth plastic layer beneath?

I've seen rubberized handles on things like umbrella's go similarly sticky, and their top rubberized layer removed.

Does anyone have a discarded airbag cover to test this on? would be a great contribution to sticky airbag cover owners everywhere.

Sticky airbag covers... now why does that sound, so wrong, heh heh

I used Simple Green and paper shop towels to wipe the layer of goo off of the airbag cover.

No longer tacky, looks nice. :up:
What is simple green - solvent? grease remover? Don't have that product over here and i'd like to try an equivalent product
